Buy Handmade: Ubiki

images via Etsy

OK, I must admit, I'm a lover of all things cute. It should come as no surprise that I adore these images from Ubiki, but there's something about the scale of the work that hits me on a different level. The oversized "monsters" and animals seem so out of place in their stark and minimal surroundings, like they're just doing the best they can to fit in; it really tugs at my heartstrings. Sion Lee, creator of Ubiki (and graphic designer AND beloved blogger of Cuteable), describes her work as "simply modern" with "clean lines, fresh colors and basic forms." I call it sweet, nostalgic, and just plain human. Find more of Sion's work here.
