Sparkle #163: Travel with the Holiday Magazine

I recently came across some illustrated covers for the Holiday Magazine, and was curious to know more about their content and readership. The Holiday Magazine was first published in the US between 1946 – 1977, and it introduced a new and exciting glamour and lifestyle travel format for it’s readers. What set the magazine apart from it’s contemporaries was it’s strong aesthetic sense, a fun and creative layout, stellar photography and brilliant writing. An art house in Paris relaunched the magazine in 2014. They started with the essence of the first version, but also added trends from the current century to make it more…

Sparkle #132: Fall Fashion Moodboard

I love creating mood boards! They are great for visualizing different elements of a theme. You can experiment with multiple components, put together contrasting as well as complementary elements and play around with different compositions till you find one which feels just right! A mood board is an effective visual way to communicate a certain idea, after all visuals work the best when it comes to catching attention! To celebrate my love for fall, I have put together a fall fashion mood board which will give you some ideas on how to update your wardrobe for the coming season. For me, autumn means color blocking, cozy knits,…

Sparkle #116: Illustrated Playing Cards

Illustrated playing cards are so much fun to look at, they almost always end up distracting me from the game! Illustrations done for a pack of playing cards tend to be creative as well as extremely versatile. Given that a deck of cards has restrictions of space and content, it requires a massive stretch of the artist’s imagination to come up with something unique and interesting. There are all kinds of illustrated playing cards – artistic and playful, vintage and contemporary, multicolored as well as black and white and so on – the list is endless! Here are some interesting playing card illustrations which caught my eye, do you like them…
