Artist lust: Raquel Gonzalez

Raquel Gonzalez is a Barcelona based artist studying Fashion Design. I've noticed her gorgeous and often humorus illustrations circulating the internet for a while and just had to share her with you. 

How beautiful? Raquel Gonzalez's illustrations have really inspired me to pick up the pens and pencils and put a British twist on this Spanish senoritas incredible works of art. The small details such as the extra layered markings on the mans beard, the growingly popular use of circles for cheeks and the awkward sizing of the body to head ratio really add the contemporary and modern twist to portraits that is increasingly becoming so renowned in the illustrative world at the moment.
I'm considering the Queen and her corgi dogs in a similar style in time for the Jubilee!
