This is not our first post about Josephin Ritschel, whose incredibly intricate risograph illustrations are so beautifully warm and pleasurable to look at that we felt a real need to fill you in on her latest work. Her drawings are comforting like your favourite reoccurring dream, and feature the kind of modernist homes found in dense Scandinavian forests that you can imagine Grace Kelly hanging out in while sipping margaritas.
The illustrations are coloured in with the kind of precision that children can only dream of when they try to stay within the lines of their colouring books. There is something so warm and homely about these drawings, and they recall the simple but overwhelming joy felt as a child when welcoming a new brood of puppies to the family, or playing with pet gerbils in the garden. Having produced work for some of the very best, from Nobrow to The New York Times, Josephin’s work is sure to sweep you off your feet.
