In May, our Pinterest board was a true explosion of color. Thanks to Brittany from The House that Lars Built for all those beautiful pictures. This month, it’s the turn of illustrator Yelena Bryksenkova, who will be our guest pinner throughout June. We’re huge fans of Yelena’s work here at Flow, and you’ll regularly find her illustrations in our magazines and Specials, such as the current issue (#24) of Flow Magazine (‘Thoughts on being Alone’), Issue 19 (in which she illustrated her ‘Happiest Things’), Flow Book for Paper Lovers and our Big Book of Drawing.
Yelena is currently illustrating a guide to words of positivity and joy, and is also working on some personal paintings. “Pinterest is a great tool for collecting inspiration for those paintings, especially color palettes and vintage patterns that I would like to use in my work. I also use secret boards for every new big project that I work on, where I collect images of people, clothing, interiors and anything else that will come in handy. Gathering information is one of my favorite parts in preparing to work on something new, and pinning is the perfect way to have all of the visual research in one place.”
