It’s just more fun when you take a closer look

Need a creative boost? Take a look at a great series of illustrations by Dutch Tineke Meirink.

After realizing that she needed to experiment more in her work to stay fresh (Tineke Meirink has been an illustrator for about 15 years now and has illustrated lots of picture books, educational books and magazines for several publishers) Tineke started to photograph things that seem unimportant: stains, rubbish, ordinary objects.

In Photoshop she adds a minimal illustration which brings those pictures to life. By means of the illustrated photos she lets people see what she sees. To make them realize that ‘it’s just more fun when you take a closer look’.

The idea is: first you see what the ‘ordinairy’ picture was like, and the second picture shows you what Tineke sees in them.
