Illustrations by Parko Polo

Twitter suggested to me that I follow Parko Polo (a.k.a. Edinburgh-based artist Edward McGowan). So I clicked on his profile, which took me to his website, and was delighted to discover all of his charming, colorful illustrations. Like these four for the National Library of Scotland:

This witty illustration (“A seemingly empty room of ninjas”), which he created for the Collective Nouns Project, would sell well as a print:

And this “Age of Adventure” illustration reminds me of The Twenty-One Balloons – one of my favorite childhood books.

If I had been caught up on my blog reading, I would have seen that he was just featured on Grain Edit.

If you like what you see, go to the Parko Polo website as well as his blog, and you can also see his portfolio here.

Have a happy weekend!

    Love the Ninja print! I wonder if I should purchase that as a birthday present for my little ninja, Luca. Hmm…

      Unfortunately, I don’t think it’s a print for sale. It’s so cool, though – I think it would sell well if he were to sell it.
