Anders Røkkum


If you’d like a little escape today, check out these illustrations by Anders Røkkum. The Bergen, Norway-based artist creates some dark work, both literally and figuratively speaking. It’s all very well executed, but I’m most drawn to the pieces that take place in the stars. Check out his Instagram for the most up-to-date work.






Amélie Fontaine


Amélie Fontaine‘s illustrations make me smile. Her universe is made up of a mysterious and half-dreamed natural history, a strange universe that often includes animals and silent stories told in the form of step-by-step instructions. All I know is that I’d happily move in tomorrow.










Louise Jewell


UK-based illustrator Louise Jewell studied and designed fashion knitwear before turning to illustration. I’m so drawn to the seafaring characters she creates right along with their furry companions. If you pay attention you can also see the obvious influences of prints, patterns, textiles, and fashion. Plenty of Louise’s work is for sale in her shop if you’d like to own it, too.







Jacqueline Smith


Australian illustrator Jacqueline Smith, who also uses the pseudonym Auf Wiedersehen, combines pencil and watercolor to create lovely and mysterious women. Most hide behind their hair and reside in what can only be imagined as somewhere between dreamland and outer space.








Eiko Ojala


Let this be a lesson in always reading the fine print, because these pieces by Estonian artist Eiko Ojala aren’t made from paper. The depth and texture of each one is created digitally, raw edges and all. Ojala loves working with light and shadow while keeping his artworks minimal and focused on the beauty of shapes.








Anna Deligianni


Athens, Greece-born illustrator Anna Deligianni‘s current work focuses on mobility, while the focus on detail carries over from previous work in engraving. Every bit of us has a story, doesn’t it?

Be it physical migration or a psychological journey, people are always struggling to leave their current situation to find a place where they can finally be at peace. I often use eyes in my paintings to symbolize the fact that there is always someone watching you, traveling in the same way as you are, sometimes as a friend and sometimes judging you, feeling empathy and companionship.
