Inspiring Wednesday #1

Wednesdays seem like such a good time to share some talent and inspiration with everyone.

Actually any day is great for that, but from now on it’s gonna be wednesdays. Inspiring Wednesdays with a new artist every week.

This week it is Juliette Oberndorfer – concept artist, background designer and illustrator.

I find her art absolutely mind blowing. Everything about her pictures arrtacts me: the vivid colors, outworldly creatures, elements of the “naive art”, compositions.

I can look at the colors in her artworks forever.

The video below is her college project, it tells the tale of a hunter bewitched by the luminescence of a forest pool. Absolutely astonishing colors.

Here is her blog and her tumbler page. Do give them a look.

Thank you for reading:) If you liked this post, please share it with other awesome people you know.
