Musikkspalten by Mari Kanstad Johnsen

Oslo based artist and illustrator Mari Kanstad Johnsen has so much good stuff in her portfolio that it seemed difficult to know what work I should post. I could have shared a number of her pieces but I decided that there was so much good stuff in just this single illustration that it deserved a whole post of its own.

This illustration is taken from the Norwegian publication Norrøna Magazine. It’s a kind of lifestyle and outdoor magazine with a focus on snow-sports. Mari’s illustration is called Musikkspalten and I just love the combination of all the different elements in this piece. It’s really fun and playful, and I love the muted-color palette which Mari uses.

If you want to see more of her work (and to be honest, you really should), then head on over to her portfolio. I especially encourage your to check out her beautiful degree show animation Octopus which follows scientist and nature-cinematography-pionéer Jean Painlevé in his struggle to make the perfect film about the lovelife of octopuses.
