The odd proportions and textural elements in Gosia Herba’s style are still present in this update of work from the Polish illustrator. Among the book covers for Penguin Random House and editorial commissions from various Polish magazines, there’s also a series of personal illustrations that focus on folklore and mythical legends.
Inspired by stories from all over the world, Gosia’s pastel, peachy tones bring new life to these traditional tales. We’re so used to seeing beasts and gruesome fables seeped in dark colours and rich in detail, Gosia’s interpretations feel fresh and spirited. Nature is present throughout the images, represented with simple shapes like droplets of water become little rectangle blocks and trees are just triangular outlines. It keeps her illustrations busy but not overcrowded allowing the eye to dart around the image and take it all in.
