Yet another illustrator who I’ve found via Instagram. I find it fascinating how Instagram has made it easier for these freelance artists to build an online portfolio and show their work off, without needing to go through building a website or hiring an agency.
This image came up on Viktoria’s Twitter and Instagram feeds and I’ve posted it because there’s something about it that reminds me of The Nutcracker. Maybe it’s the trees / wisps of woodsmoke / mysterious clouds in the background that give it a magical twist. For anyone looking for an individual present, Viktoria’s Etsy shop is here.
