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.

“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.
Be inspired by dreamy paintings where humans and nature coexist by Japanese artist Miho Hirano. Her subjects appear unified with their environment. Striking elements of the paintings include hair flowing into flowering tree branches or strands of seaweed and adorned with goldfish, hummingbirds, and various insects. Each element carefully crafted that carries their own symbolic weight. Using hair as a female identifier in her work, Hirano portrays different attitudes and emotional interpretations of women, including her own alter-ego.
I usually paint women; because I am a woman. Each of my female characters can be seen as a self-portrait of mine in some way, such as sharing my desire to dress up. However, they are not myself in a mirror, but someone else who takes over my consciousness. One of my goals as an artist is to explore how we adorn ourselves with accessories, and how this plays a role in our identity.
Meet Fabio Sasso, a Brazilian product designer based in Oakland, California currently working for Google as a Staff Designer. He is also the founder of Abduzeedo, an award-winning digital publication about design and a personal project that has become the source of inspiration for millions of designers and enthusiasts. Fabio recently challenged himself to take a photo a day for a year.
On the project, titled A Study in Architecture Photography, Fabio states: “Still I am more like a beginner/enthusiast than a photographer, but one of the things that I learned is that I love to take photos of buildings and architecture in general. There’s something about the contrast of man-made structures with nature and sky that creates an eerie feeling.”

It’s not often that you walk down the street and encounter an artwork that warms your heart or brings a smile to your face, but for Brazilian street artist and muralist Alex Senna, positive emotion seems to be his visual currency. His lanky black and white characters are often found in a variety of hopeful, loving, and positive scenes from a pair of lovers embracing to a family riding a bicycle. To intensify their emotional depth Senna often gives the flat characters broad shadows that stretch out larger-than-life across urban walls. You can check out more of Senna’s work on Instagram.
