Illustrator + Graphic Designer Luci Everett
I talked about Luci Everett awhile ago but I'm so in love with the work of dear Luci in Melbourne, Australia that I have to share what she does over and over again. Do you know this amazing lady? If not, I totally think you should because she never ceases to amaze and inspire with her gorgeous drawings, collages, graphics and watercolors. I totally dig her use of color, too. She uses all of my favorite tints and tones.
Her blog is filled with wonderful things and she sells some of her work in her big cartel shop called Paper Soup. Watercolor illustrations are all the rage at the moment, have you noticed? They're a big trend and I can't get enough. I love how Luci does lots of band and event posters, I think they are so attractive... I wish more bands put thought into their gig posters, sometimes it's so depressing how ugly some can be. But not Luci's posters - they must sell tickets because even if I've not heard of a band before, if they put this much effort into their promotional materials I'd reason that they'd have to be worth checking out. Same goes for events, especially handmade markets and art fairs. If the posters look good (or flyers, website, etc.), I'm so there.
I especially love this party book below which was part of a small project that Luci worked on which is, "A handmade, french-folded book playfully exploring the theme of party". Oh swoon...This is so whimsical, feminine, detailed and just charming!
This is such a special piece to me (the book above) that I'd love to see in person - it seems so precious (in a good way). Books never go out of style when they're so thoughtfully created, do they?
