Illustration We Love: Akvile Magicdust

Hello everybody, here’s Akvile Magicdust! Akvile is a Lithuanian illustrator and artist, currently based in Vilnius. She loves skating, glitter, tigers and the colours pink and blue. We love the surreal and funny comics she draws for Vice magazine, her mystical paintings and the fact that she doesn’t just stick to one style or media.

She’s going to be a special guest at Brighton Illustration Fair (which we’re also participating in) so we’re looking forward to seeing some of her stuff in real life! Akvile tells us she’s also got an exhibition coming up in Los Angeles in December which sounds very exciting. She is also working on a comic book featuring Lucy The Confused Girl, which should be published in spring 2018.

Here’s a link to Akvile’s instagram account. She posts great pictures of her sketchbook, graffiti and the occasional tattoo. FOLLOW FOLLOW FOLLOW
