cute inspiration

Vintage Hello Kitty by +Pixel.
I have been obsessed with "cute" illustration since I was a girl. I can remember getting my first Hello Kitty stationary set at Higbee's when I was eight. It had tiny little colored pencils and lots of little cards and envelopes with Kitty on them. Sanrio was a huge part of my 80's childhood.

Here are some new illustrators that have caught my eye and make me feel inspired.


Bubblefriends by Sascha Preuess

Helen Dardik is simply amazing.
