the drawings of ulrike kestere are so sweet and simple in nature. i love the details on things like fur and landscapes. her work really reminds me of the wonderful tove jansson as well as some other nordic/scandanavian illustrations ..it just has that ‘feel’. i can’t explain it!
totally crushing on
totally crushing on – ulrika kestere
i also love that she seems to work almost solely in pencil, or black and white/greyscale. as much as i love colour, sometimes there’s something so soothing about seeing work that has minimal to no colours in it. kind of the equivalent of taking a break and just watching an old film.
