Lawless

Nathanna Érica

I’m having a little trouble processing this much talent in one person. These are the colorful, joy-filled artworks by Nathanna Érica. The Brazilian artist reports that she spent her childhood delighting in book illustrations and animation and yearning to be a part of them.

“I’ve been drawing ever since I could hold a pencil and even before that my mom would get me to eat by distracting me with drawing lessons, so, yes, it comes without saying that I love to draw. I can’t imagine my life without art, and having graduated from law school a few years ago made me see that doing anything else other than being an artist would be really difficult.”

-About Nathanna Érica

Law school? How did that happen? While I’m sure Érica would have made a fine lawyer, I’m very glad she’s pursuing paper art, illustration, and character design instead. I love the way she can make any character, no matter how contemporary (or dark), look like they’re straight out of a 1950s children’s book. Her Audrey Hepburn series has driven me particularly insane with need. I want them all!

You can follow the amazing Nathanna Érica on her website, Instagram, and in her Etsy shop.

  3. My mom immersed me in all things Audrey at a very young age (and I’ve done the same with Kate)— I just love everything about her! These posters are amazing!
