Admiring this new series of embroidered portraits created by Amsterdam-based artist, Petra Wolzak.  This series entitled, “Fighting Females”, honors a group of women who achieved enormous progress for their families, their village, their country, their world.  Her colorful portraits are constructed of leather, embroidery thread, wool, and glow-in-the-dark twine. The first of this series features explorers and people of the North and South Poles.

Antti Kalevi


Can’t seem to get enough of the illustrations of Helsinki-based artist and illustrator Antti Kalevi. His images are all created digitally despite their cut-out, paper-like appearance. His inspirations are everywhere and most commonly found through “travelling, food, music and the fine arts”.  He says this briefly about his work:  

“My aim is to create work which displays things at their bare essence–while keeping the poetry.”

More of his work can be seen on his website, Facebook and Instagram.
