I love illustration is back after working on a huge magazine project for a Dutch celebrity, filled with lots of Dutch illustration talents! Soon more on my art-direction blog...

I love the colorful detailed work of Ola Volo, it is like walking into a fairytale in this cold winterdays. She is a Canadian illustrator from Kazakhstan with a love of nature and folklore. She graduated from Emily Carr University with a background in illustration and design. Her illustrations are a merge of animals, people, history and nature. Using traditional and digital mediums, she creates stories touching on folklore, symbolism, human nature and the little surprises of everyday life.
