Nature is a superb way of finding natural and unique inspiration.

When searching for inspiration for these illustrations, I find taking a good look at the world beneath us, the sea-bed of the ocean always points me in the right direction.

The bright colors, unusual but natural shapes and the detail in the photos below will hopefully inspire you as well…
