English illustrator Emma Block creates some really sweet and charming illustrations. Looking through her portfolio I found I had lots of fun trying to figure out exactly how each of her pieces were made. Certainly it looks like there seems to be a lot of really nice delicate collage work in them – in some images it seems like trees and other details are literally popping off the page. Whatever the technique is that she uses I think it works really well and it adds a wonderful texture to her illustrations.
I particularly love the look of the mattresses in her drawing of the famous fairy tale ‘The Princess and the Pea’. Go check out more of her wonderful illustration online here.
