Joao Ruas - Souvlaki has been a huge source of inspiration for me for a long time. His art continues to amaze me with it's soft haunting atmosphere and special symbolism. The way he captures flowing hair and soft facial features can keep me staring for ages.
I first noticed this artist through my husband who knows so many cool artists it's incredible he can keep them all in his head. Since about two years ago I think I've been following Ruas work on his blog and It just does it for me every time. His illustrations are definitely up amongst my very favorites in this whole little world..
