Italian marketplace illustration

New Italian marketplace illustration! It was great for me to work a little differently and try out unusual compositions for this idea - I find it oh-so-hard to stay away from drawing faces sometimes!  Halfway through drawing my millionth tomato I did slightly regret my choices - but it's great for me to tackle food themes as well, I've been meaning to for a long time indeed.

I've been thinking a lot about the settings of my illustrations recently; working with vibrant places with bold colours, smells and sounds.  I've been seriously upping my vegetable intake lately (and heading to markets to buy them tends to be much more interesting than the supermarket!) I love the bustle of a busy marketplace - the colours and characters are fantastic!

What do you guys think? Do you want to see more work like this from me?



  1. This is lovely Emmeline, I love your choices of colour, they work so well together! :)

  2. I would love to see more work like this from you! I really like the composition & colours x
