Creative Café #27 ★

hello dearhearts, i promised you a Creative Café post... so here it is!

you know what to do, however if you're a new reader and you're unfamiliar with 'the drill' it's really quite simple!

basically, you have to run away from the computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone for a moment... 

and get yourself a nice cup of tea, coffee, juice, water, champagne, smoothie or milkshake

+ oh and don't forget to grab a yummy snack in the form of a cupcake, biscuit, chocolate bar or piece of fruit

then settle down to enjoy some lovely arty times via the Creative Café blog post!

easy peasy!

so without any further ado let's get on with the post!

today it features artwork by the wonderfully talented Samantha Hahn

Samantha is an American illustrator living in Manhattan, NY. "Her illustrations feature delicate pen work and brightly colored inks for a range of editorial, publishing and licensing clients"

she uses watercolour paints and concentrated inks to create colourful and expressive illustrations

she really does create the most stunning illustrations overflowing with bursts of colour and fabulously delicate little details that make her pieces so fresh and vibrant!

her work is often very girly in nature, featuring lots of bright hues and predominantly feminine characters or themes

she works primarily with ink and watercolour but is also a very talented digital artist often creating gorgeous patterns, characters and designs using digital methods as well as traditional materials
 i particularly love the way she draws/paints eyes, simple lines yet always so expressive

i always find her work very inspiring, her illustrative style is exquisite and i just adore the colours she uses in her pieces

i also really love her text and food themed illustrations! always so gorgeous

have i rambled for long enough?! i tend to get carried away don't i?! 

okay i'll let you all scroll through some of her sumptuous illustrations at your leisure! enjoy...

super duper stunning right!

time for some lovely links now...
