I am enjoying the work of Lotta Nieminen, a graphic designer and illustrator from Helsinki, Finland. I particularly like how she renders buildings and I love her style, which is very infographics-friendly (read: a clean style, pretty icons and – oh! – those cute tiny people!) What Lotta adds to the mix though, are beautiful textures, a beautiful color palette and a consistent style that makes her work stand out.

Sponsor giveaway: Poorly Drawn Things

Penny Poorly giveaway

It’s been quite a while since we had a sponsor giveaway here, and I’m thrilled to welcome Penny Poorly of Poorly Drawn Things here on Pikaland! Penny is based in San Diego, USA and psychedelic, colourful patterned pieces are the hallmark of her work! Penny’s work has grown from tiny Bic and Sharpie pen sketches to large watercolors and beyond – often immortalized in brooches, necklaces, prints and more.

She’s offering Pikaland readers a Forest Animal Prize Pack worth USD$38 that includes one Scavenger 2” x 2” Cameo Necklace (25$ value) + one Little Rabbit brooch (8$ value) + a Forest Animal Sticker set featuring cute forest animals are taken from one of her larger watercolor paintings (5$ value)!

Since Penny started out with Bic and Sharpie pens, tell us what materials and tools YOU used when you first started out! Leave your answers in the comments section of this post and we’ll fish out a winner after 15th November 2011!
