Adorable Creatures Illustrated By Hanna Harris Of Geeks Are Cool

Hanna Harris is a freelance illustrator and a character designer based in Wales, UK. What makes her work distinct is her signature colorful and playful style. Her characters have adorable shapes especially their big wide eyes that draw the viewer's attention to the piece. Hanna's work is narrative in nature featuring them interacting among themselves or with the nature around them.

My favorite thing about her work is the rich, deep color palette that just brings her characters to life. She is happy to take commission work, if there an idea in your mind that you would like her to create for you then you can contact her through Instagram - GeeksAreCool.

Intricately Embroidered Animal Portraits by Andréia Kiss

Let me begin this brand new year with this stunning work by Andréia KissAndréia Kiss is an artist based in Portugal. She creates these amazing embroidered animal portraits that will stop anyone in their tracks. She often uses reference images before starting a piece and then proceeds to draw on fabric with pencil.

She draws freehand and then does embroidery to create masterpieces which have moment and personality. Her work caught my attention for its precision and intricacy. The artist uses color palette to embroider her subjects which are in contrast with the background. The owl is "painted" in white and black pops against the beautiful blue backdrop.

For any of the embroidered artwork or enquiry related to her work, she can be contacted through her Instagram profile - atelie_ak.

Happy Holidays! + Jahna Vashti

Happy Holidays! I would like to wrap up for the year with these cheerful and playful illustrations by Jahna Vashti. Thank you so much for visiting my blog this past year and encouraging me with your comments. It truly means a lot to see you enjoying the owlsome work I hand-pick to share with you. 

I wish you and your family a merry christmas if you celebrate and a very happy holiday season!

Before I let you go, let me introduce you to the wonderful work by Jahna Vashti. Jahna is an artist born in Vancouver Island Canada and grew up in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles. She is a self-taught artist who always loved to draw and color ever since she was a little girl. 

"My imagination ruled my every move. The pipes that stretched from the walls that lined the alleys were never just pipes. The tree in the front yard wasn’t just a tree. My father’s favorite car was more than just a vehicle. They were all beings, with a character and a life. So I drew pictures - a lot of pictures."

In her artwork the quirky characters come to life - the owl, bear, raccoon, fox, rabbit, and squirrel - all have a distinct personality. The snow, the christmas tree, winter woodland, holly, all scream holidays.
