As you might have guessed from the fact that I run a blog all about it, I am a big fan of illustration. And as you might have guessed from the fact that I am doing 12 days worth of blogging about it, I am pretty keen on Christmas too. So when Christmas and illustration come together it is pretty much my favourite thing ever. One artist who combines the two beautifully illustrator is Sophie Gilmore.
I wrote a whole post about Sophie's stunning work a while back which you can read here. So today I thought I would share some of my favourite festive illustrations of hers. Once again as you might have guess, Sophie didn't just create these for the hell of it but to be printed as greetings cards which you can find in her online store alongside a gorgeous collection of prints which are all perfect for Christmas gifting.
You might notice that the last few image aren't Christmas-themed but that is because some of the other illustrations she has added to her portfolio since my last post were too good not to include! They are each so delicate and delightful though that I am sure you won't mind!
