josie portillo for red cap cards

even though i live in seattle, my homeland of southern california is never too far from my heart. palm trees, spanish architecture, desert mountains, crowded freeways...all of it triggers a feeling of homesickness for me. i think that's why i love the illustrations from josie portillo for red cap cards so much -- she's a born-and-raised angeleno just like me, and i can feel that through her cards! 

josie received her BFA from the art center of design (i interviewed for a job there once, a loooong time ago!) and works as an independent illustrator for clients including random house, NPR, st. regis hotels & resorts, vogue living and more. she joined the red cap cards team earlier this year -- check out the full line of her cards here. some of them seem right out of a so cal travel book -- and even the rest have a nice california-cool vibe.
