Heartwarming Illustrations by Pascal Campion

Fall in love with these heartwarming illustrations by Pascal Campion. Pascal captures us with artworks that all of us can relate to. Like that time in your childhood when you would hang out with your buddies and explore the neighborhood… or that time when it was really snowy/rainy when you would sit by the window and think about life.

The beauty of Pascal’s work is it’s really relatable.  It brings a sense of a kind of nostalgia. These are some fine examples of art with a sentiment.

A lonely god

“Even with super powers, we are all alone” is a minimalist set of illustrations created by Belhoula Amir, also known as Cosmosnail, an illustrator and character design from Lyon, France.

The inspiration behind these illustrations created by Cosmosnail is to show superheroes alone doing something related to their super powers. We see Superman flying out in space, there’s Batman lonely checking his computer system and others like Ironman, Spider-man and Wolverine.
