Simeon Elson illustration for Mortgage Strategy magazine

London based illustrator, Simeon Elson, was commissioned to create this illustration for the UK publication Mortgage Strategy.  Here is a bit about the project in Sim's own words:

"I completed this cool cover illustration for Mortgage Strategy.  My brief was to illustrate George Osborne with a silhouette of Margret Thatcher as his shadow. This illustration was the cover image and also used to accompany a double page spread entitled ‘Chasing Shadows’, which delves into the constant comparisons being made between George Osborne’s and the late Margaret Thatcher’s housing marketing strategies."

Beautiful new illustrations by Mariya Paskovsky

Mariya Paskovsky has been working on new collections for her illustration portfolio, and here is a sneak peek of just some of what she's been up to.  She created this series by hand with pen and ink and added the color digitally.  Here's a bit about Mariya's inspiration for these gorgeous illustrations, in her own words:

"The girls with flowers are the result of beautiful Victorian 19th century flower illustrations that I am collecting. I wanted to created something vintage or "chic and antique" looking inspired by tea cups, dentelle (lace), and English roses."
