Shimrit Elkanati: On a Rabbit’s Tail

Work / Illustration

Illustration: Spectacular illustration from Israeli artist Shimrit Elkanati

Lovely work here from Israeli illustrator Shimrit Elkanati. Not only does her name sound like someone who has been brought up in the forest by a bunch of folklore-loving elves, but her work gives off the same vibes. What’s so great about her portfolio is the way she can hop from mystical work with a kind of Studio Ghibli feel to it, straight to illustrations for The New York Times that depict modern people in comical, everyday situations. That’s when you know someone’s really good, when they can just as easily and effectively draw an intelligent, appealing picture for a child as they could for your average, grumpy adult.
