We featured Polish illustrator Gosia Herba this time last year, so it felt right to delve back into her portfolio to see what she’s been up to. Busy as ever with commissions from clients including The Washington Post and Bloomberg Businessweek Polska, her editorial illustrations really stand out. Full of brilliant texture and wonderfully proportioned characters with small angular heads and oversized limbs, it’s clear there’s still a Cubist nod within Gosia’s style. But it’s the velvety sheen she’s cast over her images, blending sumptuous tones with softer shades that makes her work so beautiful and elegant.
