Mamau Illustrations

September 23, 2010

Sara Olmos is a graphic designer in Rome who is currently exploring illustration as an alternate means of communicating her vision of the world. She sells her sweet drawings in her etsy shop, Mamau, if you’d like to take a peek at her work today…

Mamau Illustrations

Her current series of illustrations, le petit monde, or Little World — is inhabited by characters who interact with objects that are drawn out of scale in order for them to explore new meanings and relationships with these everyday, ordinary things. Giant cupcakes, larger than life dandelions, an April shower from your very own showerhead up in the clouds… They would be lovely combined in a whimsical children’s book, don’t you agree? So imaginative!
