Yelena Bryksenkova

Saint Petersburg born Yelena Bryksenkova's work is really lovely. Her characters are full of personality, sassy and a bit noodley, but in a way that makes them accessibly naive - they remind me of those drawn by fellow Eastern European illustrators Anke Weckmann, Eva Juszczuk, and Evgenia Barinova, especially. I adore how textured her works look, and admire how she is able to seamlessly merge densely colored areas with faded washes of color within a single piece, as well as combine so many different pattern designs, large and small, in each composition. Take a look at her website to see more work!
