The Cheetah

the_cheetah_ellichortara-01-01

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.

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!

new illustration! collaborative theme

hecticday-ellichortara

So here is the latest piece which is the collaboration theme selection with a friend of mine. This one is called ‘Hectic Day’ which is not far from the truth at least for me at the moment! Hectic mornings rushing to do things as portrayed in this illustration! Well a little bit more about myself here I have settled back in London for a while now near my old neighbourhood and am rediscovering the big city. Working and exploring town, perhaps trying to meet some new people – if I am not busy I tend to take massive walks in town – go to cafes markets and try food sometimes all the same but some other times sometimes different! I enjoy the city life and walking around my area and exploring the nearby ones too perhaps taking some guided walks, because I think it is vital to appreciate and find out more about the place I live in. That’s all for today – but l’ll keep a promise to post more regularly my new illustrations 🙂

Bridges

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
