Those of you who seek inspirational quotes will surely enjoy this array of minimalist illustrations from Toronto-based web and graphic designer Ryan McArthur. Discovered by Freshome on My Modern Met, this collection of artworks takes sparks of wisdom from famous figures and delivers them in an original manner. From Tolstoy’s “Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no none thinks of changing himself” to Oscar Wilde’s “Be yourself; everyone else is already taken“, these framed prints are however you want them to be: ironic, motivational, philosophical or humorous.
Currently available for purchase on Etsy and priced $18.58, the works are first drawn by hand using pen and ink and then digitally rendered. The drawings are minimalist, yet perfectly portray the meaning of each quote, making them interesting additions to home decors. Ryan McArthur’s portfolio is quite diverse and some of these illustrations can also be ordered as postcards. Moreover, they are well fit for IKEA frames, which definitely comes in handy.
