Ishtar Olivera

March 16, 2010

I’m happy to introduce a new blog of the week, this time we’ll be peeking in on illustrator Ishtar Olivera Belart in Spain. She loves to craft and create many things in addition to her hand drawings — she’s so creative and an inspiration to me personally.

Her photos capture such a nice mood — cozy, accepting, without judgment, familiar, crafting, home… I do hope you’ll visit her blog.

    I came across her in Flickr today, and had to stop to admire her work. I love her almost naive style.

    I lived in China a few years ago, so Asian-inspired art really captures my attention. I love the drawings above with the girls in kimonos and the little pandas. So charming! And I love how the lanterns in the second picture are a separate piece attached to the sketch – 3D art is always more interesting!
