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.
