I fell in love with Paolo Del Toro’s work. He’s based in Wales, and in addition to being an illustrator, he’s a woodworker – he creates these beautiful wooden boxes in the shape of heads (check out that last one with the teeth!) His illustrations are filled with all sorts of lovely textures and of colors of bygone eras. He has an amazing range of style too, and his blog is a testament to his talents. He’s one to watch out for, mark my words.
