I’m inspired this week by Marta Madureira, an illustrator from Portugal. Her website only links to her email at the moment, but a quick Google Image search unearthed a lovely portfolio inspired by colors and textures. I discovered her through Pinterest and fell in love with these original works, which are up for sale at the Lusa Mater website. I think what’s so beautiful about them is how the intricacy of patterns and the bright hues of colors come together to create an explosion of unique, one-of-a-kind creatures.

Quick note: I’m going to take a break from writing for a bit and indulge in a spot of visual regurgitating until January 2014! But there’s going to be fun projects in store next year and if you’d like to keep up with me, you can always sign up for the weekly newsletter here!

Loving these fun collage illustrations from London-based illustrator Lianne Harrison. The way her collages infuse character (by use of eyes/lips) does wonders for the overall tone of her illustrations!

Her client list includes GQ magazine, House & Garden magazine, Geeked Magazine, The Welsh Books Council, Spiral Productions, The Vegan Society, Bobadeg Books, Amelia’s Magazine, Y Lolfa & One World Action.
