Flowy, understated and muted, Mel Kadel's dreamlike drawings are something to behold. Often using a multitude of different shapes, the aged-looking creations are inspired.
Kadel uses an approach she describes as "drawing with an eyelash." Careful and light in execution, the outcome is a gentle and pleasing aesthetic. The illustrations seem to radiate love and feature a cartoonish character. Muted rainbows sounds like an oxymoron, but you'll see many in Kadel's work. Some pieces radiate a story of struggle, where other seem to emit pure love. In any case, these lovely drawings would make a beautiful addition to a children's bedroom or any playful space.
Subtle, dynamic and lovely, Mel Kadel's work is undeniably likable. Already feeling the love on the blogosphere, more great things can be expected from this visionary.
