Karolis Strautniekas is an accomplished 25-year-old freelance artist from Lithuania. His work has been commissioned for several publications including The Independent, Creative Review, Usbek & Rica, and Taenk Magazine. The illustrations feature creative perspectives and rich textures, and the color palette fosters an almost jovial atmosphere. I think it’s just great. Head over to his portfolio to see many more.
You can also see some “work-in-progress” images at his Behance page.
