Marta Orzel has a creative and particularly original technique for handling line, form, and texture. Her wonderful illustrations are arrangements of cleverly layered pieces that come together beautifully.

Seeking out and embracing the imperfect has given the work of Hungarian illustrator, Borbála Tompa a tactile feel with its beauty in the rough edges.

Borbála’s work is all about mastering the unpolished finish and keeping the sense of expressive, intuitive decision making in her work. She tries to capture the character her paintings have even though the final images are worked digitally.
