People I admire… Garance Doré

Even she is better know as a fashion blogger, Garance Doré started her career as an illustrator in her natal France. She has a very particular drawing style that is so feminine and chic that the first time I saw it, I was hooked. She mixes very well thick and fine lines that she combines with perfect composition and lots of details . So here is my recognition to the “Garance artist” I admire so much. If you want to read her history from the illustrator Garance to the fashion blogger Garance click here(recommended!!) Or you can just visit her blog (which I do daily) and be amaze with her funny and real approach of life. I think she wouldn´t be catalog as a fashion blogger, is more as a real woman´s view of fashion. Enjoy!

People I admire… Lisa Congdon

Lisa Congdon is a californian ilustrator and artist that start her career at the age of 31. She used to work as a teacher for non-profit organizations and painting was just a hobbie in that time. After years of hard work, self taughting and practice she is now a full time artist. I love her story which is truly inspirational for everyone wanting to be an artist or anyone wanting to make a hobbie a real job. She remember me to stay focus, love what you do and do it every day (even if you have a regular job) because time, dedication and pasion are rewarded somehow. So if you are wanting to do “the job of your dreams” just be patient and let the time do his thing.


She has also worked in amazing 365 projects online, like collecting things or sharing quotes handwritten. Hope you feel inspire as much as I do.

People I admire… Lora Zombie

I am really obsess with this artist, her name Lora Zombie a russian lady that is a genious in making amazing paintings using watercolors, acrylics, collage and mixing this techniques together. She is really talented and so inspiring. I am passing through a watercolor love period in my life and she is my Da Vinci in this area. Her work is sublime and at the same time intriguing. She admits to do “grunge art” but in my opinion (and in many for sure) she is an amazing talented artist. I dream for a private watercolor class with this lady!


By the way if you are interest in Lora, you can check her youtube channel which has lovely short videos with her painting.

Be yourself even if…

Last weekend I watched the movie “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” and one line really hit me.. it was something like “Welcome to the island of Misfit Toys…” So today I share with you a new drawing of the “Be yourself series” inspired in that phrase. If you want to check the previous drawings of the series “Be yourself”, just click in the drawings tag.

People I admire… Malin Bergström

I found this amazing artist and ilustrator this time offline. I am a huge fanatic of Nylon Magazine and one of their ilustrators is Malin Bergström. She is swedish and I have to admit I have a special love for her country, I have family in Sweeden and I went once in a beautiful summer and felt in love of this scandinavian country. She works mixing collage with ilustration in a unique way and her drawings are absolutely amazing. I love the colors she uses, always some black and white with hints of color. Here is her work, hope you enjoy it.


Love, Nina.
