Art: Natalia Hernández González

Little Head (2012) by Natalia Hernández González 
"...light and darkness, color and warmth, infernal coldness. A place where beautiful and monstruous creatures hide behind every character, every word, waiting and lurking for your innocent and compassionate look."
That is how Spanish illustrator / designer Natalia Hernández González introduces her world on her art blog,  Spooky Delight There really isn't a better way to describe the creepy-cute characters and bizarre scenes created by this imaginative woman. From heads in jars to robots, exploding bowels to octopus-human hybrids - it's all there!

As well as the unusual subject matters, NHG also has a wide variety of illustration and design styles, which she seems to be constantly improving and refining. It's refreshing to find artist that experiments and tries new things, rather that simply producing the same kind of pieces repeatedly and this is part of  what keeps her work unique. Admittedly, some of Natalia's techniques are similar to artists such as Tim Burton, Mia Mäkilä, and Mark Ryden, but there is a feel to each illustration that is singularly her own.

  1. Her work is gorgeous! Love her use of warm tones in her art. That last one put me in mind of some hentai stuff I've seen. I'll check out her blog!! :-)

  4. Natalia's work is really awesome. She balances the 2 sides really well. My favorite is probably Little Head and Child's Game.
