The Move is a new magazine illustration corresponding to an article about the ‘adventure’ of changing/arriving into new environments sometimes because of accepting a new career offer based in a new environment or just for changing locations for any other potential reasons.
I enjoyed playing around with those elements that are relevant to the nature of the article and creating a fun composition with it. Copyright © Elli Chortara. All rights reserved.
A new illo finished this week, I really enjoyed creating a certain amount of playfulness and contrast with this – while keeping a kind editorial illustrative look. © Elli Chortara. All Rights Reserved.
Here is one of my latest images called Port Reconstruction. I must admit that having moved to a city that also has a port with a bit of an industrial area around it too, has been a strong inspiration for this image in terms of incorporating some of the stylistic and building elements to this illustration.

Here is an Emeli Sande summer tour poster I created recently and had fun doing this while listening to this album. Image is copyright of Elli Chortara © 2013 All rights reserved.
Fashion take this time. Spring has well arrived and summer is getting finally a bit closer so this was inspired by accessory fashion, a field I had worked in and had enjoyed very much, also by summer festivals, street fashion and music and because I generally love summer accessories – especially headwear and sunglasses. Summertime is a great season to wear those looking forward to more sunny days and spending time out in the open! Bags might be next. All work is copyright of Elli Chortara © 2013 All rights reserved.

I have been keeping very busy with things lately but I never forget important Birthdays! So I have someone’s birthday coming up very very soon and have decided to create some birthday fun in this illustration, inspired by animals – birds in this one specifically, yummy cakes and …spring – what else after this long, long winter? This one is also soon to become a Birthday card and to be printed digitally in some fine paper and will be found at my online shop that is currently under construction. Here is to Spring then and to a Happy Birthday and a great Easter/Bank Holiday weekend too. All work is copyright of Elli Chortara © 2013 All rights reserved.
