Design in a Hailstorm #9: Josie Portillo

If you enjoy wonderfully skewed perspectives, whimsical character design and retro styling, LA illustrator and animator Josie Portillo is definitely one to keep an eye on. Josie's interest in subjects as eclectic as UFOs, mid-century design and the songs of Edith Piaf shine through in her romantic, haunted artworks and animations, all mysteriously populated by pirates, thieves, and kissing couples. Some of Josie's brilliant artworks are available as prints from her Etsy shop, and my favourites - full of tiny, engaging details, including the charming 'La Vie en Rose' series - are below.
