It is amazing to see the beauty that design and illustration brings to the world. Asides from aesthetics, functionality has become deeply ingrained in the work of art being produced, making you gape at how beauty and functionality can be intertwined to birth awesomeness. We therefore thought it would be cool to show off some of the Female Illustrators whose works we’ve stalked and enjoyed.
