Drawlloween Artist Discovery: Lydia Jean Art

My final Drawlloween discovery is US based artist Lydia Jean - with a series of cute illustrations in a sparse and bold seasonal colour palette.

Written by Amelia Gregory

And here's my final Drawlloween 2016 discovery: Illustrator and dog enthusiast Lydia Jean created this cute series. I love the way she has settled on such a sparse colour palette, which works really well with her simple lines. She sells “Dope Illustrations Handmade with Love” on Etsy here, and I believe these images will be available as prints shortly.
