Although there’s a definite style to her work, it’s hard to put your finger on exactly what Kathryn Macnaughton‘s mixed media illustrations have in common. Some references to pop culture. Some are generally innocent, others are more risqué. Some have clearly distinguishable backgrounds, others are more abstract. Even her work spans a few mediums, from paintings, to illustrations, to collages. Perhaps it’s just the decidedly retro feel that ties them all together. The Toronto-based artist has dabbled in commercial projects as well, having been published in glossies like Fashion Magazine and The Walrus, and featured on Penguin novel covers. And if her art enchants you, it’s available to purchase in her online shop.
