Kuvva: Royalty-Free Illustrations

kuvva

A heads up for all you illustrators out there, Kuvva was a wallpaper app but they’ve transformed themselves into a pretty valuable tool for you folks. They’ll sell a non-exclusive license for each of your illustrations for €500 (you get half). Something to consider anyway.

Matthew and Roxanne Ortiz (Vers Hawaii)

vers-hawaii-mural-01

Matt and Roxy Ortiz are a husband and wife artist duo, based in Honolulu, making work under the name Vers Hawaii. The couple are becoming known for their paintings of fantastical tree top villages that feature half-pipes and bowls.

I’m sure their work will remind most people of the Lost Boys hideout in Peter Pan but it actually reminds me of something a lot more obscure. Has anyone read Babar Visits Another Planet? I’m probably alone on this one but the floating houses on different levels, and the slides, totally make me think of it.

Take a look at more of their work below!
