Delightful Illustrations Are Playfully Completed with Everyday Objects

Artist Jesuso Ortiz creates colorful illustrations using everyday objects in a delightfully clever way. The Spain-based creative employs a myriad of unconventional materials–from buttons to flowers to badminton birdies–and seamlessly integrates them into his images. Suddenly, these objects have extended beyond their intended use. They now make up clothing, fish, feathers, and more.

Ortiz's repurposing of these conventional items will instantly grab your attention. The three-dimensional element, when paired with minimalist drawings, strikes the right balance of vibrant colors, bold details, and interesting textures. They aren't overworked or overly complicated. As a result, his illustrations feel fresh and contemporary, harnessing the carefree spontaneity of a sketch.
