Love illustrated – Philippa Rice: Soppy
Well, now that I’m so much into Valentine’s Day I might as well top it with a bit more sweetness – and I am talking literally, as Philippa Rice’s book called ‘Soppy’ can hardly be described other than sweet.
Philippa is a UK-based illustrator who recorded every-day life with her boyfriend in the illustrations of ‘Soppy’. It is easy to see why the drawings became an instant success: they lack the usual ravings, instead they convey love in a very simple and natural way – basically how we experience it in our everyday life.
Apart from illustrating comics and children’s books, Philippa also does animations. The book ‘Soppy’ has been on my wishlist for a while now, and these illustrations will always make me smile even on a grumpy day.
I’ve also found this great video about the making of ‘Soppy’.
