Beautiful and Sunlit


New illustration created this week including beautiful flowers with shining sun light. @ Elli Chortara 2015


The Cheetah


Here is the illustration for this week a proud and beautiful Cheetah! Cheetahs are animals of extreme beauty and of course speed – they are the fastest animals on land, so I have read recently – but unfortunately also an endangered species. If you like big cats please contribute here:
Cheetahs are dynamic, wild, beautiful and fast – so here she is – an illustrated version of one! Font used courtesy of Retro Fonts from Laurence King Publishing.

A great way to start this month and the last of winter too, the month that prepares us to welcome spring and wishing you all a Happy February!!!!!!! Elli Chortara © 2015

No title – Don’t know what it is called yet illustration!

Hello! As promised this year will be a creative one with more and more illustrations coming up and and even more creativity for good measure! Well just a few days after the start of the new year and feeling more motivated to be creative than ever.. – here is the newest illustration full of colours, shapes and shades for your eyes enjoyment all combined with a smile to keep lighting up our hearts! 🙂

Here is the latest illustration it is called ‘Cosmic’ and has been created in probably more that 2-3 cafes – as all my illustrations made with the best possible intentions. It might seem strange to some going to a cafe all the time especially on sunny weekends and doing all these drawings instead of just lying down somewhere in the sunshine – oh well – I like to create my illustrations somewhere with people and noise, especially after work or during the weekends when I simply like to have some creative fun, and I live in tiny tiny room too! Such is the life of a creative – what can be done – this is a blessing or a curse – take it or leave it – I think I ‘ll take it 🙂




Here is my latest one! Bridges it is called, I like bridges because they bridge – create communication and many places to go! While usually looking beautiful there with their structures too. Mine over here are simple but incorporated within a colourful, sea and retro fun landscape.


Music Around me


Here is the collaborative theme illustration for this month. Spring has well arrived and the selected theme is same as the title of this blog post – music is everywhere to explore! © Elli Chortara 2014 All rights reserved.

Cycle To The Sky – theme drawing


Here is my latest illo! This is for the collab theme choice drawing exercise/challenge. This time it was ‘Cycle To The Sky’ and have used a more subtle palette to create a dreamy effect upon the kind of realistic cityscape.
