The London-based French illustrator Malika Favre has had another big year, adding even more breadth to her already impressive portfolio of work. In the summer she was invited to Tenerife by a Spanish design collective called 28ymedio to take part in its Illustrated Journey project, which aims to “help fight the economic crisis in Spain by promoting the Canary Islands and bringing a new stream of tourism.”
“There were basically no constraints, no brief, no client but the island itself,” Malika told us. “I found some really interesting similarities between shapes of water, road, sand and mountains and decided to use a single direction for all the illustration so they almost follow the same light going from the bottom left into the picture.
“I decided that each image would contain a living element, a natural element as well as an element of wind and created a series of six illustrations sharing the same muted palette to best reflect the atmosphere of my journey.”
