Love what New York based illustrator and RISD grad Dadu Shin has been doing recently. A lot of his pieces remind me of the creatures in the video game "Shadow of the Colossus," if that comparison makes sense to anybody (which I doubt it will). He clearly draws a lot of inspiration from nature, and as a result, his work is very simple and charmingly calming. He also uses lovely color schemes and textures. Dadu also maintains a pretty damn awesome fashion illustration blog in addition to his regular sketch/process art blog and website , so you should give all three a look!
