FYI Monday: Gorgeous Illustrations by Sara Blake

This post is part of the For Your Inspiration Monday Series showcasing the most inspiring designs out there. Each week a new artist or design style will be presented in order to get your creative juices flowing for the upcoming week. I hope you enjoy the series.

Sara Blake aka ZSO is an illustrator, designer, and fine artist living in New York City. When I first came across Sara’s work I was blown away. She’s a very traditional artist using pencils and paper for all her art which she finishes up in Photoshop. Muted colour palettes really enhance the intricate drawings. For more inspiration (including case studies) go to www.hellozso.com or simply say hi to her on Twitter.

  1. I love the technique of using hand drawn skills mixed with digital skills. Sometimes you can lose the effect of hand crafted work when brought onto the computer but Sara makes sure this element is not lost. The FAQ’s on her website are really helpful not only to understand her work but it also contains some useful information for other creatives. I love that her website reflects her style as well, the washed out paper is such a nice effect that can really help bring out the brighter colours. The clock and cockerel are my favourites for their boldness and mix of shapes. I love the detail on the cockerel too with the mix of techniques.

  2. Great work. the mixed media is wonderful. The cockerel adn the daisy is my favorite. Keep up the good work.
