As an inspiration to my own illustration projects, i got inspired by british illustrator Alice Melvin. I love her birds. just look at those incredable patterns and colors. it reminds me of the work by one of my fave artists of all time, Charley Harper, but this is almost better. The details are stunning. You can buy some of her prints from her website Alice Melvin.
She also has these amazing cut out birds. I especially like the brown one from this website: Pinterest, but one of my favourite pieces, is the green and red teatowel print she did for a japanise company called SRG. i gotta have it.
