camilla engman

How have I not seen these before? I’ve written about Swedish artist/illustrator Camilla Engman several times, and she is one of the artists in CREATIVE BLOCK {you have to try her unblocking project on p.219 – it’s a really good one!}. I love these found envelope collages so, so much… clever, fun, creative, and instantly recognizable as “Camilla Engman”. I love that I recognize some of these funny little characters from her paintings, and now here they are, in found paper form, popping out of envelope houses! They make me want to rifle through all of my recycled paper, grab some scissors, and head into the studio for the rest of the day #donotdisturb

    Just finished your lovely episode with Camilla and wanted to know how I can get more information on the artist collective that she is a part of with the studios open for international artists.

    Thank you!
