This is a short post and an old illustration, but since Karolina Laskowska has temporarily re-opened her shop for what I assume will be the last time ever, it feels like a good time to share this!
This illustration features Karolina’s famed pentagram thong bodysuit, an often imitated but never duplicated garment, and also one of my first pieces by her. It’s a fantastic piece, but I won’t be reviewing it here, seeing as they’re no longer being made. In lieu of a review, enjoy the pretty picture!
I made this illustration about a year ago for an illustration competition that Karolina was running. Here we have two women relaxing in their garden at night after a long day of work, happy to be near each other and happy to enjoy some quiet time. One is swirling a glass of wine, and the other rests nearby, perhaps with a book or her own drink.
Some of y’all may have noticed that I’ve been hooked on nighttime color schemes for way, way, way, way too long, but I’m still not over them! I just love drawing with moody greens, blues, and purples. In fact, I’m planning a square illustration for silk scarves in a similar moody color scheme soon!
Have any of y’all swiped something from the Karolina Laskowska sample sale yet? I’m proud to brag that I got my hands on the last Natasza capelet, which I’m so excited to see and touch in person in a few weeks! I’m not yet sure if I’ll dedicate an illustration to it, but I’ll certainly share pictures of it on Instagram!
Eeeeep, so excited!
