Illustrations by Anna Emilia LaitinenJuxtapoz // Saturday, 01 Oct 2011
Anna Emilia Laitinen is a Finnish artist that creates these minimal, whimsical illustrations. On her website, she says this about herself: "In 1983 I was born in Leppävirta, a small town in Finland with strawberry fields, lakes and pine forests. There I built huts out of branches with friends and my brother, listened to stories from tapes and drew, cut and glued paper. One summer we found Melancholy thistle flowers which we used as painting brushes."
