A lone figure sits on the edge of the moon, fishing for stars – what beautiful imagery and the perfect place to begin a magical story.
There’s something about these stunning illustrations that draw me in – some are playful, some are strange, others are whimsical, and I can easily describe several as haunting. I love the idea of being able to not just look at a picture, but become part of it by telling my children stories, using illustrations as a starting point.
If you’re a fan of children’s art that’s a little left of the norm, Majali Design and Illustration’s creations are right on the money. These pieces come from the creative mind of Maja, a Swedish freelance illustrator and graphic designer, and mother of two.
The twist on childhood favourites is a refreshing surprise, with Counting Sheep a beautiful and dreamy rendition of that twinkling place between wakefulness and sleep.
You can snap up a piece of this beautiful artwork from Majali Design and Illustration for US$20, in varying sizes. Each piece is signed, titled and dated. You can also purchase a set of eight postcards for US$16, postage to Australia is US$5.
