dröm sessions: Hanna Konola (Finland)
This March’s dröm sessions, we had the opportunity to catch up with Finnish illustrator – Hanna Konola! Hanna uses the most quirky and somewhat unexpected pairings and combinations from the colour palette, her illustrations are so simplistic yet so complex both at the same time. We stumbled and fell in love with Hanna’s works when we saw them at Tokyo in indie stores such as Galerie Doux Dimanche & Uguisu.
But now let’s go beyond & dig deeper into Hanna’s creative brains as we interview her, let’s go!
Check out our full interview here.
Lullatone – While Winter Whispers
We recently discovered that Lullatone’s latest album cover is designed by the awesome Anna Kövecses. It’s so playful with its paper folding that it folds out to a poster, and then folds back to a sleepy face, that’s all ready to hibernate!
Lullatone’s latest album – While Winter Whispers, is now available for sale at our online store by clicking here.
This February’s dröm sessions calls for Swedish illustration goodness! This session, we speak to Swedish illustrator/artist – Camilla Engman! Let’s start our little adventure with her as we find out a wee bit more about her as we go behind the canvas of her art pieces.
