Alexandra Snowdon


Loving the work of UK-based artist Alexandra Snowdon.  She is a self- employed illustrator and hand lettering artist, working on commissions from a range of worldwide clients. On Design Juices she says this about her work:

‘The lettering and illustrations in my prints are all created by hand, starting off as tiny pencil doodles in my sketchbook. I complete the finished pieces using ink (if I want the design to be bold and striking) or pencil (for a softer look). The designs are then either transferred to a silkscreen for hand printing or output on my giclée printer using fade resistant, archival inks. I try to keep computer usage to a minimum, using it mainly as a tool to clean up and rescale my artwork. I try not to make it look too ‘perfect’ though, I love seeing evidence of the human touch and all it’s quirks and imperfections.’

You can find the artist on her website, Instagram and Behance.  You can purchase her prints and cards in her Etsy shops.

Sara Andreasson

The bold graphics and striking colors of these illustrations caught our eyes immediately.  They are the work of London-based Swedish illustrator and designer, Sara Andreasson.

She grew up in a small town from which, as she puts it: “I escaped from as soon as I possibly could“.  She tells us a lot about herself and her work on an interview with IDOART.DK.

You can view more of her work on her website, Facebook and Instagram.
