Michael Sowa-esque Art

I love the artwork of Michael Sowa. You may recognize him from the French film Amélie.  Whimsical and surreal without being unsettling, Sowa takes a child-like imagination and fleshes it out in an adult and grown-up setting. His colors are rich. His premises hilarious.

I decided to scour Etsy.com, the best online arts and crafts community that I know of, and see how many contemporary artists followed the Sowa vein. Here are my findings. If you click on the picture, it will take you to the respective shop on Etsy.com.

Enjoy! And if you know of someone I left out, please, by all means, share!

    What a wonderful collection, I am honored to be included! I just love the other artwork and will check out their shops. (I was already familiar with a few but what a great idea to search around and share).

    ^_^ I’ll keep poking around etsy, and once I find a collection large enough, I feel a treasury coming on!
