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


Mills and Castles


Hello! Keeping the creativity promise as per 2015’s resolution and here is the latest illustration called ‘Mills and Castles’ and -inspired- by beauty that older buildings have. Also by mentioning some inspiration by warriors, nature, castles here is a contemporary version of a static vector building construction. Clean shapes and of course keeping it as colourful as ever!

Roof Gathering!


this is a new illustration I have finished called Roof Gathering including vector animals, fun and colours, which makes it relevant to arrival of Spring and spring moods – although where I live at the moment still the weather is cold, cold and am looking forward to the Spring or summer days arriving here too.

The Take Off – A flying Owl, taking off for new adventures (Edit 2)


This is another – not common to meet – creature to be added. This time a well dressed bear – like sleepwalker passes us by, carrying an object which appears to be a paper house, light as it is. Let the creature continue its nocturnal subconscious stroll. It won’t be long until morning, where this action long gone will only be remembered by us, the have – been wide awake viewers.

Illustration inspired by Jorinda & Jorindel tale
