Claire Softley: Cats (detail)

Work / Illustration

Illustration: It doesn’t get lovelier than Claire Softley. She even has a nice name.

If you’re finding the midweek morning a little too much to bear it might well be worth you stopping off for a healthy dose of Claire Softley’s charm. The illustrator works in a unique blend of collage, ink, geometric shapes and paint to create pastel-led images which are striking for their mixed media appearance as much as for their underworked simplicity. Her series of motel rooms feature an especially gorgeous array of fabrics and textiles rendered in ink, and if it is charm that you’re after, don’t miss the cats. Everybody loves a cat.
