I Heart Rachel Ryle
Hallo from Germany! I'm getting some quality R&R time while putzing around the southern region & wine country of Germany. I came across this cluster of colorful buildings in the small town of Esslingen & immediately started drawing it. I hope all the bright colors brighten your day! #germany #esslingen #travel #europe #german #townhall #building #historic #architecture #art #drawing #sketch #colorful #postcard
Thanks to **Jena** and this article in the Huffington Post for introducing me to the charming illustration and animation work by Rachel Ryle. A self taught artist, her Instagram account was named as the #1 Instagram account to follow by MTV & BuzzFeed!
The image above is from a series of travel postcards she illustrated over the course of a recent European adventure. With a nod to the Dear Photograph project (which I mentioned in this “Ads Inspired by Artworks” post), she shows her drawings next to the scene that inspired each one. Equally creative are her animations. She explains on her website that she only started animating in July 2013, which just shows how a little inspiration and a lot of risk can combine to make magic.
Here motto is, “Make Something & Grow.” I couldn’t agree with her more!
Come Fly With Me!
