  1. The composition & detail reminds me of Mexican folk art – so beautiful.

    Anyone know a tutorial for creating illustrations like this?

  2. There’s a tutorial on Blog.Spoongraphics which is about similar design. You can check it out here: http://www.blog.spoongraphics.co.uk/tutorials/how-to-create-a-detailed-vector-sugar-skull-illustration

  3. Would love to see all of these as painted pieces. As nice as the vector images are, the paint just brings something fresh to it with colours merging and textures, which totally transform the feel of the image. You could experiment with different painting techniques too. The Niark 1 poster is my favourite for the simplicity and composition
