Illustration: Intriguing comics and sweet illustrations from Talya Modlin

There’s something of a divide at It’s Nice That between those who appreciate comics and those who don’t, which is why artists like Talya are perfect for us as she dabbles in both comic book-making and brilliant illustration. Her red-nosed characters lounge in rays of sunshine, hike through forests and – like all great comic book stars – discuss and grapple with the bigger questions that can hang over our daily lives. I’m pretty sure Talya’s artwork isn’t for everyone, but I’m certain that it’s some of the most intriguing, beautiful, and unique illustration I’ve seen for a while. Anyone who sees this image and doesn’t immediately feel the sun on their face and the prospect of summer needs to get their eyes tested.
