Really appreciating the artistry of Ukrainian freelance illustrator, Nastia Sleptsova. Love the simplicity and the muted calming tones of her illustrations. She carries this minimalist approach as well in the blog description of herself:
“My name is Nastia Sleptsova.
born in Crimea, living on Lvov / Ukraine
I draw and make stuff.
Here I show my works and some pictures of my life.
Feel free to contact me:
besides, here is our family project of me and my sister Katya:

In awe of the skill when I think that these leather talismans are handmade. Found them at the Japanese online handmade market, Iishi. The leather miniature mascots are hand dyed and hand sewn and can be attached to your bag or pouch. The items are sold under the brand name, Munieru, and can be purchased here at Iishi.
