Happy Dreamer - Laidback



One of the first illustrators I took serious note of was Jordi Labanda . I first noticed his work in Wallpaper* magazine . Labanda hails from Barcelona, Spain (one of my family's favourite cities), by way of Uruguay. You've probably seen his illustrations before. I consider him one of the heavy hitters of illustration for the 21st century. His art playfully illustrates social constructs and illuminates a lifestyle which many of us dream of living.



Happy. . .




. . .always glamourous. . .



. . . sometimes cheeky. . .



. . . I could easily live in Jordi Labanda's world. . .

Oh my, love that first illustation especially. The style and how severe the dad looks! Too cool.
