I just recently came across the artwork of Artist Alisa Foytik and because I found her drawings to be so joyful, I felt they needed to be shared with my readers in my first post for the New Year!
To celebrate the beginning of 2013, I am also hosting a GIVEAWAY! Yippie! Alisa has agreed to give away one of her lovely pieces to one of my lucky readers. Please see the end of this post for details…
Alisa Foytik is a Russian artist who is a Featured Contributor to Shutterstock (a global marketplace for high-quality imagery). She currently lives in Washington, D.C. and has traveled every corner of the world. She is a gal of many talents; an artist, photographer, fashion designer, blogger- just to name a few.
Her unique artwork is known for its hand-drawn style. She has said that she loves “to draw uneven and quirky lines”. Her wonderful work is inspired by many things. She has a love for gardening and drawing flowers is one of her passions. She also has a degree in fashion design and worked as a fashion designer for 2 years, designing wedding dresses — so “everything to do with fashion and weddings” provides her with inspiration for her artwork.
I love how easily her artwork can be used by others to create any number of amazing projects; scrapbooks, personal blog design, creating stationary, collage-making, the family newsletter, card-making, bookmarks, and more. (Notice from Artist Alisa Foytik: The designs are for personal project usage and you may use for small commercial business. Please go to shop policies http://www.etsy.com/shop/GraphicMarket/policy for more details.)
