    Karolis Strautniekas: Daily Ideas

Illustration: Curious stories told with drawings by Karolis Strautniekas

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Really very impressive work here from Karolis Strautniekas who, after spending a few years as an art director, decided to turn happily back to illustration where he truly belongs. Karolis has the magic ability to come up with a very good idea and very quickly turn it into an immediate drawing that speaks volumes. His Portraits from Behind series, for instance, could easily have been restricted to just his camera phone, but instead he has brought it to life in detailed, layered illustrations. His editorial work is clever, easy on the eye and not without a sense of humour. I swear my alarm clock says that (above) every morning, or at least my brain does.
