Johanna Basford

I recently discovered the work of Johanna Basford. She specializes in hand drawing illustrations mostly in  black and white. Her portfolio is full of drool-inducing artwork, but my favorite project is the wallpaper she created for a Starbucks store in London. She was determined to have Starbucks as a client, so she kept sending hand-drawn cups to Starbucks London and Seattle headquarters. Eventually they got in touch with her and commissioned a wallpaper for the Vigo St location in London.
