I’m completely smitten with the work of Sarajevo born artist and illustrator Yellena James, which has been described as “colorful arrangements of organic shapes and tangled lines which are at once floral and alien, organic and sci-fi, crafty and fantastic.”

Her clients already include some serious names like Anthropologie, Adidas, K2 Snowboards and Nike, and as well as being displayed at galleries worldwide, she has been featured in Vogue Australia, Giant Robot, Domino Online, Design Sponge and Apartment Therapy among others.

Her Etsy shop is here, and her featured seller interview is here.
