Follow Friday - Yellena James

I've known about Yellena James' work for a while now, but I just came across her on Twitter, so thought I would share her beautiful illustrations as part of our new feature profiling our Twitter followers.

Yellena's work is focused on organic illustrations and brilliant colors. It's also super affordable (lots of $20 prints), so grab yours here!

Follow Friday is a weekly post featuring the great designs/artwork of some of our Twitter followers.


  1. I was introduced to Yellena's work a while ago, but it slipped out of my mind.. so layered, lush + in motion, almost. great post and twitter point-out !

  2. hey elissa/loop! I was just going to ask you if you were on twitter but then realized that you are...

  3. :) tweet ! did I tell you how nice it was to see you at NSS in NYC last month, 'cause it was super nice. this post inspired me to buy some of yellena's prints - new summer energy for my office. i hope all is well in sub-land !

  4. It was great to see you, too! I was glad to be able to stop by and see all of your new work - it all looks awesome! Also - awesome to hear that you just bought one of Yellena's prints!

  5. Ohmygoodness I love Yellena's work! All that intricate linework, and all that bright color... i aspire to have that kind of patience when creating pattern in my own work. Beautiful beautiful.

    It was nice to meet you at NSS all those weeks ago! I ran across your booth and introduced myself as a loyal follower of sub-studio. I enjoyed talking with you and seeing your work. So nice to put a face to the blog!
