ArtTrue Colors with Artist Michela Picchi

Italian girls are known for their style, and artist Michela Picchi leads the way with a cute illustrative style all her own! Flamingos, flowers, and jungle scenes abound in lip-smacking shades of pink, purple, teal, and yellow. In fact, it’s Michela’s distinct color palette that makes her work so memorable and fun, with chic graphic qualities and a trendy feminine touch.

ArtBubbly Personalities: Artist Amy Martino

Facial features are overrated. Capturing the essence of form and fashion, designer Amy Martino strips down the human figure into a series of curvy shapes and blocks of color. Bubbly details are a signature for this New York based art director, as well as astral elements, and watery outlines. My personal favorite is “The Breakfast Club” where Martino distills characters Claire and Allison into just a few fields of color, totally capturing their distinct personalities.
