Seeing as it is almost St. Valentine's Day I thought I'd share something I find incredibly romantic. The art of Rob Ryan.
Rob Ryan's illustrations are so beautiful and whimsical and childlike. I think they are the most beautiful pieces of art I have ever, ever seen and I could (and do!) go through his portfolio of gorgeous work everyday just soaking in everything I love about them.
Whilst I think they are outstandingly beautiful, what makes them so romantic is the text that goes along with the images. Special, wonderful little quotes and speeches that are so simple yet ring so true to anyone who has felt what he describes.
I'm not doing him justice. If you haven't heard of Rob Ryan I really think you are missing out and should take a look at his work. You can purchase them from a few different places; his Etsy shop, his shop website and Mollie & Fred to name but a few. They may not be cheap, but they are so so so worth every penny (in my opinion!)
One day my house is going to be filled with plates, mugs, cushions and screen prints of Rob's. Here is a few of my favourite of his work.
What do you guys think? Who are your favourite artists/illustrators? And what do you find romantic? I'd love to know :)
