“Man From a Golden Land”

We’re wrapping up our Recent Grads Week series with the lovely illustrations of Marianna Madriz. Marianna is originally from Venezuela, but currently calls Bournemouth, UK “home”. Marianna’s charming illustrations feature characters with delightfully egg-shaped heads; her aesthetic reminds me of a cross between the Moomins and especially old-school Lemmings. Marianna is interested in taking on freelance illustration projects.
