Helen Borten Illustration Heaven Part 1
I really like the illustrations of Helen Borten, and anyone who follows this blog will know that I’ve featured her work a few times in the past, and no doubt will continue to do so, as new or previously uncovered illustrations come to light.
‘Do You See What I See ?’ the first images from a great series of books.
These images (below) are from ‘The First Book of Festivals around the World’. They have a great vibrancy about them and yet are amazingly simplistic in their colouration.
I’ve been lucky enough to find a copy of ‘ A Picture Has A Special Look’ and have been totally amazed at the versatility of Helen’s work. Her line-work, watercolour, ink-work, collage etc are wonderful, it looks like the work of ten artists, not just one !
These are all different styles from the same illustrator, and the same book !
A couple of design repeats I’ve created from Helen’s work … just for fun.
More from Helen to come.
