Cloudy Thurstag

Loving these Zodiac sign portraits created by Berlin-based illustrator, graphic designer and art director, Cloudy Thurstag aka Claudia.  As in many of our posts we prefer to hear from the artist herself:

“Letting yourself go and loose yourself in the moment is what I love about illustration. I switch from analog to digital all the time – when the ideas come I use pencil and paper, but for the realized illustration I work entirely digital. A lot of subjects are displaying a longing or an emotion being close to nature using cinematic colors to create an atmosphere to get lost inside.”

You can view more of these Zodiac signs and other works on her website, Behance and Instagram.  Some of her portraits can be purchased here in her Etsy shop.

Mai Yamamoto

Love these delicate glass orbs created by Japan-based artist Mai Yamamoto.  As usual there isn’t much information on the artist.  We do know that she studied at the Tokyo University of the Arts, University of Wolverhampton, UK and Anadolu Universitesi in Turkey.  She has also worked at the renowned Japanese glass studio, Ushio.

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

Kimika Hara

Admiring these girl and animal illustrations created by Japanese embroidery artist and illustrator, Kimika Hara.  The Kyoto born artist embroiders with free stitch.  She embellishes her work with cute fabrics, colorful threads, acrylic paints and assorted beads.  Her work is considered kawai (cute) and cheerful.

You can follow the artist on her website, Behance, Facebook and Instagram.  She sells a few of her designs here on Etsy.
