Let’s Color Nature + Nicolas Gouny

My very first illustration. Made from brushes courtesy of French illustrator Nicolas Gouny. You can download his trees brush set here.

Who is Nicolas Gouny? I first saw Nicolas Gouny’s works at deviantArt back in 2009. He is known there as ploop26 and has posted more than 400 illustrations for children. His illustrations have been used by French local stores and internationally known children’s toy giant Janod. He has produced picture books, calendars, and handcrafted jewels featuring his illustrations available in Etsy.

His works feature bright colors with subtle paint-like textures, backed up with cute mini stories. His characters are compelling and their fun adventures are effectively translated into works of art. Nicolas Gouny’s talent not only lies in illustration, but also in storytelling.

Nicolas Gouny is the man who inspired me to try and eventually pursue illustration. Two years ago I fell in love with his works, and two years later I am still fascinated with his art pieces.

Here are some of his works:

  1. Just came across your blog and this is truly beautiful. I love the colours and the somewhat sweet nature it brings out. I’m looking through all of your illustrations, and they’re absolutely wonderful. Each piece you have made gives such lovely storytelling ^_^
