Maria Magdalena van Wyk

Described as an ‘obsessive doodler’, we have been waiting patiently for Cape Town based illustrator, Maria Magdalena van Wyk, to reveal her lookbook for 2015.

She had us hooked last year with her Wander Collection and her Instagram account continues to inspire you to pick up a pen no matter where you are. Magdalena is exhibiting her full illustration range as one of the 40 aspiring African designers in the Emerging Creatives programme, at this years Design Indaba. Collaborating with a feast of local creatives, the lookbook showcases Magdalenaʼs full illustration range of line drawings and signature aesthetic.

“I am seeking an elegant simplicity through a complex series of lines … documenting snippets from my ordinary life and transforming it into something extraordinary through lines of ink.”

Her 100 Tiny Originals project, celebrates the beauty of the seemingly mundane in a series of 10cm x 10cm drawings. Watching the progress of her work unfold online is quite something and we highly recommend you to follow her here @m_magdalena_cpt.
