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.
Map and City Guide for Design*Sponge
Women in Baseball for Wisconsin Storytime

Some lovely illustrated patterns
One of several custom portraits. Nice rendering of the pebbles/grains of sand.
Emily was nominated by Alex Perez. Thanks, Alex!
