Ville Savimaa illustrations sourced from : Ville Savimaa
One of the best things about my current internship jobs is that I get to pour over amazing creative work and I'm constantly introduced to new artists and designers. One of the most recent people I came across was Ville Savimaa.
Ville, born and based in Finland works as a freelance illustrator. His work at first glance looks incredibly dreamy, with pastel shades and rather cuddly looking characters, but there is a bit of a twist to it. Many of them are, after closer inspection, revealed to be rather creepy indeed! He takes inspiration from the wild; wild places and wild things.
Ville Savimaa is represented by Finnish illustration agency Pekka.
My favourites are actually his black and white illustrations, but I really just love the soft colours, shapes and the fact that you have to look again to really see the work.
