Isn't it great when you stumble upon an artist or designer or musician or whatnot whose exceptional talent doesn't make you feel bad about your own works but rather inspires you? Too often I find amazing designers online and just end up feeling jealous of them, bookmark their websites, then angrily swoon at their works later on (if you want a visual of what "angry swooning" looks like, picture me, furrowed-browed, arms crossed, pouty face, with hearts coming out of my head as I admire amazing designers' work. A notebook may be in front of me with lots of scratched-out sketches.)
I'd seen Meg Hunt's work here and there for a while and even recently realized I'd saved an illustration of hers onto my laptop years ago, but only lately have I come to really appreciate the work she does. I even bought a print of hers a few weeks ago (pictured above), which, anyone who knows me will understand, is a pretty big deal because I'm quite cheap frugal and would rather pay $10 for cute & crappy flats that won't last than spend over thirty dollars on decent shoes. When it comes to paying for things, I tend to spend my money elsewhere.
Anyways, Meg Hunt's unique illustrations and exploration of colours are what eventually drew me to her. Her prints give me ideas and inspiration for my own work, which is a rare quality to find in an artist, or, for that matter, anyone.
You can see more of her works on her website, but here are a few of my favorite illustrations she's done:
