Easter Bunny Cat - Takako Iwasa

The Easter Bunny Cat by Takako Iwasa.

Prin and Koutaro are two cats who don’t get out of bed for less than the best catnip and 10,000 American dollars. They aren’t just cute, they are extraordinarily cute and know how to make Haute Cature look as good as it should. Here they don the latest Japanese Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter collections, featuring gorgeous, flowered paw bracelets, lace veils, tuxedo fronts, wool capes with matching caps, and much more.
- “Fashion Cat” showcases the latest in feline fashion as worn by Prin and Koutaro. Purr-fect!

I am so excited to be a new curator for picks for pikaland, the pinterest board of Pikaland illustration blog. I have collaborated to this board for nearly a month now and I’m having so much fun!  Apart from having the pleasure of  sharing what inspires me, I am also discovering new illustrators on the way, which is what makes Pinterest such a wonderful source of inspiration.  Please be sure to check out my ppomme Pinterest boards and pins too!

Here are a few illustrations I have selected this week:

Ruud Van Empel Sunday Best

I discovered Dutch artist Ruud van Empel Sunday’s series via an article on the guardian photography and I was immediately drawn to his surreal bright coloured landscape, and the beautiful portraiture of children dressed in clothing from the 1960s. Each photography is a digital collage, a meticulous digital manipulation that results in a mesmerizing image.

Read the insightful article by Maria Hengeveld for the Guardian about Ruud van Empel, including an interview with the artist.

Give me a Pièce of it.
