Ukraine's Cirrus Minor

Illustration // Monday, May 14, 2012
The work of Ukraine based illustrator Cirrus Minor is no doubt strange, surreal and curiously inviting. Her bizarre and conceptually abstracted imagery is romantically blended with characters experiencing the vastness of solitude and adventure. Not knowing much about Minor and her practice even furthers the mystery within her work.

Illustration // Friday, May 11, 2012
