Highly Detailed Hand Carved Stamp Illustrations

Viktoria Åström is a freelance artist and an illustrator living on an island outside Gothenburg, Sweden. I first got introduced to her amazing work through Instagram where she posts regularly about her detailed ink drawings and hand carved rubber stamps. Her work is awe-inspiring, it's truly a work of a genius how she combines stamps and free hand drawings to reveal a masterpiece at the end. 

You can follow her on Instagram to see her in action behind the scenes making amazing illustrations each stroke at a time. She also has an online store where you can find her limited edition prints.

Textile Dolls by Olga Sokol

Olga Sokol is an artist based in Saint Petersburg, Russia. She creates amazing animal dolls with so much personality and character under the name 'Spisomnoy'. To make dolls she mixes and matches solid colored and patterned fabrics plus wool. There are so many mind-boggling details in her work, for example the careful folds of the fabric to make them look like nose, eyes and head. Once the doll is ready she would dress them in the most adorable costumes and adds embroidery stitches to make buttons and pockets. Each doll is a labor of love and one-of-a kind.
