Happy Monday! Here's a burst of bright & quirky colour to wake you up this morning.

Japanese artist Naoshi creates her colourful characters and stories using sunae - sand art. Hard to believe these vibrant illustrations are actually sand, right? If you look closely at each image, you can see the wonderful texture of this medium.

For more Naoshi goodness, pop on over to her website. Need some for yourself? Check out Naoshi's etsy shop for prints, postcards, stickers and even original sunae pieces. And you can even learn more about the process of creating sunae art via videos on Naoshi's site.
