Whimsical, enigmatic, and thoughtful, the illustrations of Tauno Erik allows the viewer to enter into a world of fantasy and beauty. And, from any angle, it’s impossible not to grasp the power of a true friendship.

The illustrations in this evocative collection are from a series Tauno Erik created in response to Ella’s and Leo’s journey, revealing the language of the heart. Through spontaneous shapes, strokes, tones and textures, the artist combined the characters’ physical form with the emotions they experienced, bringing Ella and Leo to life. This series from Under the Magical Sky suggests a view from the landscape looking up, and from the Heavens looking down.

Each giclée reproduction captures the nuances of Tauno’s original drawings and are aesthetically mounted in a double white mat and presented within a simple black wood frame.
