Riikka Sormunen is a Finnish illustrator whose characters remind me of Alice In Wonderland and crime-buster Agent 99 of Get Smart. According to Wikipedia Agent 99 was the first woman on an American tv show to keep her job after getting married and having kids.

Artist Crush: Anna Emilia Laitinen

November 1st, 2010 · 2 Comments

Anna Emilia Laitinen is an illustrator from Finland. I saw her nature-inspired work on Rifle Design and immediately fell in love with the colors, calmness and small, beautiful details. Prints of her work are available here.

You may be familiar with Anna Emilia’s work on the cover of “From Orchards, Fields and Gardens” (below) a book on small scale food production.

I’ve also been pouring over Anna’s treasure trove of a blog which she describes as “a weather diary of colors, wind speed and sounds under feet in my illustrated life.” Her photos of fantastic; you feel like you’re right there with her experiencing the little joys (snow, tea, cats, flower buds) of her beautiful life in Finland.
