calivintage + ismay ozga

ismay ozga

today i am so thrilled to share this incredible illustration by ismay ozga. i actually discovered her work after she recently collaborated with the vamoose on a series of illustrations of their beautiful collection. through the magic of the internet, we started chatting and she asked if she could draw my picture. i calmly replied, “oh yes!” and “thank you!” but in my head i was jumping up and down like a little kid. and after seeing the finished work, you can see why i was so excited!

if you like what you see, there is plenty more! as one might expect after seeing such beautiful art, she had an equally lovely blog (two two oh four) with tons of inspirational images, and she even has a shop filled with original drawings and prints!

thank you so much, ismay!
