It isn't unusual for artists to create pieces of social commentary, but Emma Hanquist does so in a refreshingly charming way. Combining pencil drawings with handmade and digital collages, the Swedish illustrator designs images with a clear message, starring endearing and relatable characters. Anyone in the social media world, or those familiar with online networking, can appreciate her illustration, which depicts figures climbing to the top of a mountain comprised of social media logos. Eying the climbers are potential employers, demonstrating the new importance of online presence in job searching.

Working out of Stockholm, Emma Hanquist has worked for magazines like Elle, Family Living and Filter, just to name a few. Her images are eye-catching and whimsical, and she is constantly experimenting with new materials and designs to keep things fresh.
