Pikaland, the one-stop blog for all things illustrated, is one of the best blogs out there! And the reason it’s so good… Amy Ng. She has an amazing eye, and consistently makes me jealous by featuring fabulous artists/illustrators. If you need a little inspiration, just bookmark pikaland.com and you’ll be all set. Want an example? Ok, here you go:

I am jealous of Tadahiro Uesugi

The way Tadahiro Uesugi draws those beautiful ladies wandering the streets of Paris, New York and Venice – such elegance! Head held high, stiletto heels and hair blowing in the wind – each one is truly a beauty. The color palettes he chooses are fantastically retro in style, and his patterned landscapes are dreamy. Plus the fact that I can’t draw human figures stylishly makes me all the more jealous!

See? She knows what she’s talking about… and now I want to go to Paris. Hey Amy, I’ll meet you there!
