This Illustrated Collections blog series comprises of multi-cultural illustrations from Italy, the Mediterranean region, the Middle East and North Africa. The collections you see here are from different sections of my website, including my Illustration Portfolio consisting of client commissions, personal projects from my Illustrated Travel Stories blog series, and more. From food to travel illustration, these Illustrated Collections are like a visual diary of Italy’s most delectable cheeses, pasta types, and local desserts. The group illustrations also include an art print of traditional Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and North African footwear. In another collection, pen-and-ink illustrations celebrate the intricate nomadic jewellery of the Middle East and North Africa with a detailed account of each item’s origins and a bit of history about the peoples behind it. I do a lot of research and collect a lot of information before embarking on an illustrated collection in an attempt to create artwork that is factually accurate. In fact, I often scour the internet for interesting tidbits to add to the story of the collection I am illustrating at the moment. These collection illustrations by Yaansoon Illustration + Art are in standard art print and poster sizes of either A3 or A2. Some have been transformed into roll-up banners and other digital and print sizes to suit the needs of the illustration and licencing clients requesting them.
