The Brink of Genius: Emily Brinkley


'It's fun to stay at the CMYK' and it's even more fun to gaze adoringly at Emily Brinkley's awesome portraits, which we recently discovered on Instagram. She has created a winning style using detailed pencil drawing accuracy combined with solid blocks of acid hues. Lively and punchy, her illustrations are fashion-inspired - the above illustration being inspired by Orla Kiely's Spring/Summer 16 line. 

The London based illustrator describes her own work as being 'heavily informed by a sense of nostalgia and retrospective thinking along with a quirky and feminine sensibility.'
