Pietari Posti’s Illustrations
The work of Finnish artist Pietari Posti is truly stunning. His portfolio includes illustrations filled with vibrant colors and incredible patterns.
… everything in the surrounding world inspires me. People, art, graphic design, comics, nice packaging, I especially like the Japanese aesthetics. Their way of using paper and their way of using empty space, they are true masters in that, I think. I go through alot of art books and magazines and I follow alot of websites and portfolios on the Internet. Lately it has been really interesting to me to see that many illustrators and designers have started art blogs, where they share their process. I find it really interesting to notice how different or similar the process is with some artists.
