Adam Higton I


I love Adam Higton's clean graphic compositions and retro style. He seems to love autumn and Christmas so it is a great time to enjoy his portfolio.

Mone Seidel


This illustration by Mone Seidel is of a line of poetry called 'Movement' by Wislawa Szymborska, Mone's favourite poet. I love it because the hat looks like an acorn.
