When I saw 'Sofia' I fell in love with her cute face, big eyes and very obvious innocenct look of wonder. I looked up the artist is and found this young woman from Tel Aviv who has a shop called Tush Tush on Etsy and who freshly graduated from the Bezalel Academy of Art & Design this year!
Tali says, "I am a freelance illustrator, I illustrate for magazines and children's books. I love working in many techniques, I love to take pictures and I love to dance."
"I really like drawing from old pictures that I come across, and to make pictures of people I think are interesting and draw them."
"I take my inspiration from a variety of illustrators and artists like Maria Kalman, Kveta Pacovska, Edward Gorey and many others."
