Over the last few months Astrid Yskout has been adding a steady collection of new work to her site and I’ve really been enjoying it. Living and working as a freelance illustrator in Belgium, Astrid has been creating illustrations for a selection of interesting projects for a while.
Take for example the picture above, it’s called ‘The Wardrobe of Fantasy’ and it was made for elmonstruodecoloresnotieneboca; a project that aims to illustrate the dreams of children from all over the world. The dream was dreamt by Adriana, a 9 year old from Spain: “One day I got inside the wardrobe and there was ice and it snowed, and I was the queen there.” she says. It’s a pretty great concepts and a really cool illustration.
That’s not the only great project Astrid has been involved in. The image above comes from a global zine based around the theme of Miontaurs. I don’t know where she finds these types of projects but I love them!
As well as working on illustration projects, Astrid also works on plenty of personal work too (how about a treehouse full of karate cats?). Her portfolio is filled with great pieces that are playful, fun and packed full of details. You can see more of what she does by visiting her site here.
