Swedish Illustrator Cassandra Rhodin

I just stumbled across this illustrator's work. It is so NOW I nearly turned myself inside out. Rhodin uses a confident combination of ink and water colour, to create predominantly monochrome and subtle coloured work. There is an ambivalence in the character of the faces that seem to embody the french quality of nonchalance that borders on arrogance.

The illustrations hark back to the early 70's fashion illustrations, with influences from the 1940's. If you blended Coco Chanel, Twiggy and the Olsen Twins I think that this is what you would come up with.
