Sonia Lazo (@sonialazo) is my pick for today’s talent!
If you don’t know what A Year on Talents is here you can find the description of the project: A Year on Talents Project
Sonia is an illustrator and tattoo artist from El Salvador. Her profile is really full of crazy pics and strange illustrations made with awesome color combinations and cute / funny subjects!
A trend on her posts is to appear in the pictures very often, she sometimes even wears clothes from her own etsy shop, meaning the art you see is hers. To be fair I love those images both because I can see a real world product and its own artist creator wearing it, which makes me happy and gives me hope, and also because nine times out of ten she choses a stunning background and poses in a strange and unique way. It’s almost like looking at a magazine cover every time!
I present you Wiz! Are you into animal crossing? Because I mean if you’ve ever played that game you’ll clearly see how funny and good this character creation piece was. She did a lot of similar illustrations and keeps going! It’s awesome, if only I could invite them all in my island, Nintendo better add more than 10 spots cause I can’t choose!
The second picture is a bit halloween themed and I like the colors a lot! Besides that I also really appreciate the style and the funny faces all the characters are showing up with. The idea of creating a shaky font to combine with this artwork is quite on point, adds a lot of mood to the scene. Simple but great piece!
