Arty Farty Fashion Friday: The 2 Funniest Illustrators you need to Know

April 22, 2016

Since I am posting lots of articles about FUN this month, I decided to stay in the theme for my monthly Arty Farty Fashion Friday. I’ve been following these two illustrators for a while already because their drawings always make me smile. Let me introduce to you: Gemma Correll and Saray Martín.

Gemma Correll

This illustrator is one of the few that actually made a career from her love of pugs and drawing like a ‘five-year-old’. Gemma’s favorite color is turquoise, her zodiac sign is Aquarius and her favorite word is “Albuquerque”, in case you wondered. Above all, her sarcastic humor is starting to become legendary: not just because of her funny illustrations, but also for the way she answers interview questions. These are two of my favorites:

Why do your illustrations look like a five-year-old drew them?

I hire a five-year-old to do all my work for me. I pay him in fudge. His name is Alan.

Is being an illustrator a real job?

No, it’s a fake job. I actually run a very successful drug smuggling ring. I just pretend to draw things and distract people with my cute pug.

Don’t you just LOVE her already?! I selected some of my favorite illustrations, hope you like them!

Saray Martín (Dessinetas)

This sweet lady is a Catalan blogger (better known as Dans Vogue), ballet dancer and – obviously – illustrator. Just like Gemma Correll she loves to create a cartoon-ish, playful style with her drawings and uses many bright colors. She says her favorite material is watercolor because it creates more dimensions in her illustrations and she gets her inspirations from daily experiences. What I love about her drawings is the fact that her characters are totally adorable, I feel like I can relate to the situations she illustrates, and of course her sense of humor! This is definitely one artist to keep an eye on ladies!
