Zara Picken is a Bristol bases illustrator who specialises in nostalgic, mid-century inspired art. Her images are retro-tinted with textured blocks of colour – combining digital and handmade elements and vintage ephemera. Each and every one of her images make me smile and feel completely iconic in essence.
