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!

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 🙂


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.


Some Street


Back to updating my blog, here is my latest one! This is called ‘Some Street’ and is inspired by constant long walks that involve exploring new areas and urban or outdoor landscapes.


Time Travel World


Here is another illustration part of the collaboration theme challenge this time. Time Travel World was the theme and came up with this abstract clock small castle electro-vintage game like (if there is such thing!) illustration.

The Big City


This is the latest illo! The big city is a fun image with trains, buildings, city elements and loving them, adding some type and it is somewhere unknown! Used transparencies and a bit of texture on this one.


Fashion Take On Streets


I have been reading a lot about Fashion Week and seen so many photos especially on Instagram – Inspired by all this I have come up with some urban fashion piece instead with some dreamy effects, act and dance style, placed outdoors in some random place and street. Was great fun playing around with this!
