Inspiration: 2 New Zealand artists that made me smile

I thought I’d share with you 2 “Kiwi” artists that always make me smile.

Crispin Korschen, from Wellington, creates the most beautiful and dreamy paintings. Looking at her drawings I seem to dive deep into a world of fantasy, a world in which adventures are always around the corner, where friendships are meaningful and trusting, and where every moment is important.

Crispin’s joyful illustrations touched me when I saw them first on a greeting card (if you’re interested here’s the online shop ). I was lucky enough to see some drawings at a gallery here in Dunedin at a later stage. Here’s another one of my favorites:

You can see some of her inspiration on her blog.

At the same gallery show, I got to see a first glance of another highly talented artist named Tony Cribb. I found his Tin-Man character fantastically amusing. His unique perspective over day-to-day life is shown through the humerus adventures of his Tin-Man.

You can buy some of his work here (have a look at the “dry humor towel”…)

Until you do so, here are a couple of my favorites  :)
