Illustration: Elena Xausa’s bold and colourful drawings put a smile on our faces

It’s a gift to be able to see the joy in everything (within reason of course) and Italian illustrator Elena Xausa’s portfolio is a prime of example of this in action. Looking through her work is just a bag full of fun and such an uplifting alternative to all the seriousness in this world.

Having featured her work back in 2012, you can see a real progression since then. She’s refined her style so it has a neatness and professionalism to it, yet manages to retain all the charm and spirit of her previous drawings. This is what makes Elena’s work so successful, as all the silliness is backed up by skill and considered execution, so it comes as no surprise that Elena has been commissioned to work for some big names over the last few years, including the New York Times.

Elena’s valiant use of colour choice and thick, black outlines are bold and exciting. Her cleaned-up doodles are really great and I especially love her illustrations of various fashion items for DASH Magazine that somehow combine the practical with the surreal.
