Kate Bingaman-Burt’s hilarious illustrations can’t help but put a smile on my face on this dreary Friday morning (is it nice and sunny where you are? Ireland isn’t quite aware that it’s Spring yet). For this particular project Kate posted an open call for mix-tape submissions and drew all of the tapes sent to her by strangers. The resulting images are sweet glimpses of a fleeting period of time when the mix-tape was the height of romantic.
Kate works for lots of brands as a commercial illustrator, as well as teaching, giving talks, designing textiles and drawing everything she buys every day. See more of her work on her website and blog. You might just like to check out her shop too…it’s full of lovely stuff.

Rachel Bone’s gouache and ink paintings are inspired by Scandinavian folk art and design as well as children’s book illustration and choose-your-own-adventure novels. In her paintings, she seeks to mix a lighthearted sense of humor with an admiration for pattern and line, with subjects ranging from the beauty of animals to the challenges faced by women in the modern business world.
My favorite part of Rachel’s work is how the richness of the patterning combines with the sparseness of the composition. Her pieces are composed of flat colors and patterns, but have a visual depth that’s irresistible.

I love Kali Ciesemier’s colors most of all, but everything about her illustration is stunning. The light, the poses, the whimsical subject matter. Her pieces make me feel like I’m in a sunny, whirlwind fairytale, even when they illustrate everyday or conceptual topics.
Kali Ciesemier is a freelance illustrator and adjunct faculty in the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) Illustration department. She has illustrated for such clients as The New Yorker, The New York Times, Harper Collins, Amtrak, United Way, LA Times, and the Boston Globe, and previously worked as a concept artist for Big Huge Games.
