Today I’m enjoying the unabashedly cheerful illustrations of Emily Balsley. Based in Madison, Wisconsin, Emily balances analog and digital aesthetics in her childrens’ illustration, hand lettering, wedding stationery, editorial illustrations, posters, patterns… Emily is one among the Happy Happy Art Collective, a group of artists with a similarly sweet style.
