La Marelle en Papier
I'm sure you know about 19-year old Coxi, the blogger and fashion design student behind Life*Fever based in Portugal (check out his new blog design and his many new writers - he is amazing, especially for such a young man!). His mother, Gra?a Pereira da Costa, an interior designer and artist, who seems to know a lot about who's who in Europe when it comes to illustrators and mixed media collage artists.
One illustrator I found out about via Gra?a is Bobi + Bobi (shown above). From there, I also came across La Marelle en Papier - limited edition cards, illustrative art, and notes. If you'd like to view Bobi + Bobi's work, check out their blog and online store. Their work is very youthful and free, using techniques that are often mixed - drawing, painting, and scraping.
Another illustrator whom I love on La Marelle en Papier is of course, Camilla Engmann, who has her lovely cards listed there. Chiaki Miyamo, Delphine, Olivier Philpponneau, Peggy Nille, Princesse Camcam, Sophie Adde, and Sophie Leblanc are all amongst my other favorites. Dreamy!
I'm heading out to dinner with a couple of friends, but I'll be back a little later to post some more. Thanks to everyone for your emails concerning my brother-in-law, your support means so much to me. Thank you!
