Happy time with Antonio Ladrillo

Recently I’ve been gushing over the smile-inducing illustrations of Antonio Ladrillo. The Spanish-based artist is the ‘guest poster’ this week at art blog It’s Nice That, where he discusses his upcoming projects as well as his poor spelling, his disappointment in art school and how a fried egg changed his life.

His illustrations show a clear affinity for bright colors, big, playful shapes and a childlike enthusiasm and simplicity that translates into his t-shirts, album covers and plain old works on paper like posters, flyers and his limited edition Robin Hood pamphlet. Check out his work and be prepared to smile.
