The Illustrations of Rikka Sormunan

Her work combines sexuality, humor, sadness, and innocence.

Rikka is an illustrator from Helsinki, Finland. She manages to mesh her personal work and commercial work in a way where you almost can't tell the difference unless there is an obvious celebrity or product at the center of it all -- which I find to be rare. Her paintings are very narrative, depicting a female protagonist; the scenes make me feel  both uneasy and delighted. 


Her work combines sexuality, humor, sadness, and innocence. The compositions and details of the environments are almost a character unto themselves. I like her nonchalant plays on perspective and the lines that appear both care free with a mild rigidness. You've got to love the attention to detail in the textiles and patterns, too!
