Stina Persson is indeed one of my favourite illustrators. This image in particular is one of my favourite images by her.
I love the use of limited colour, just black and pink and the almost 'rushed' way she uses the ink.
The pink cheeks are a lovely element to the image of the woman. I think that they are done in either photoshop or illustrator for that pristine shape and colour.
For the Dissatation which I am starting, Persson is going to be one of the people I will talk about.
My work is rather similar to hers. I like using ink and pen, (has she used pen for the face?) and think it really works, that free use of line contrasting to the bluntness of the outer shape.
