Maria José Carlier produces the sickest shirts i’ve seen on Instagram this year. 

Time to honour the best illustration artist of the year: Maria José Carlier.

Geometry, landscape, moving bodies, pastel colours, thin lines, minimalism. These are the characteristics of Maria José Carliers work.

And the best about it is: She prints her motivs on Shirts! Best thing i’ve seen in an ocean of the same looking shirts this year. Check out her website here.

Or click the black illustrations to read the short backroundstory of every pic. Told by the artist herself.




The story behind the image

The story behind the image is a new row on the blog, in which artists tell us what they want to share about their artworks.

Differently from the rest of the blog, this row will be written in english. I am becoming more and more secure with that whole blogging thing, so I am trying to take a step further and try something new.

We’ll start with Mr. Donald Sanger, a young illustrator whom I found on Instagram. I like his work because he shows big people who are relaxing, having sex, are eating unhealthy. Just as many of us do. He depicts them as normal as everyone else is and does it in a humorous way.

At least that is what I see in his work. You may see irony or criticism, that is what I like about Dons art, too. It allows many ways of reading, although the motives are not abstract. He, in any case, claims that he simply likes to draw big people. Click the gallery and let’s see what he has to tell us about the four illustrations below.
