Kirsten Sims’ Happy Scenes Are Lively, Sketch-like Illustrations

These lively illustrations are the work of South African artist Kirsten Sims. Her colorful scenes depict dinners, the circus, sunbathing, and more. That all sounds pretty good to me! Sims’ style is loose and gestural, and these stylized works have the spontaneity of a sketch.

In addition to her color illustrations, Sims has also crafted these gorgeous black and white compositions. I’m intrigued by the dark rock formation in the middle of this room.
