    Bloeme Van Bon: Paintings, 2011 – 2012

All you runners out there, stop and look at the sweet illustration of Bloeme Van Bon

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Joy, joy and more joy here for you this morning in the form of Bloeme Van Bon’s super-nice illustration. Apart from having one of the best names in the business, Bloeme is also remarkably talented with the humble pencil, which you’ll see proof of in her detailed, swirling drawings. She’s not a one-trick pony though, as her gouache work is life-affirmingly brilliant, depicting creaky town folk, tropical markets and family portraits. So have a mug of something hot at the ready before you look through her (seemingly) relatively unknown portfolio, and make a note to swap all your biros for coloured pencils and paintbrushes.
