  Alphose Mucha is one of my favorite Czechoslovakian llustrator and graphic designer.

Mucha is widely known for his Art Nouneau Posters in the 1980s and 1900s.




He achieved fame as he produces “Gismonda” in 1894 which he illustrated Sarah Bernhardt (who was the most famous actress in Paris at that time).

 Major clients also included Job cigarette papers (1898) and the champagne house of Moët & Chandon (1899).

I like Alphonse Mucha too^^ I like how he uses his space…each part looks like he considered it a lot! And the hair on the people are always so amazing o.o The people always look so relax or comfortable. The circle he always has around the people’s heads always looks so detailed and complicated. It’s funny ’cause they look like cards =P

I also love those kinds of Art Deco artists from the 1930s. My favourite is Aubrey Beardsley’s character illustrations for Salome. You might also be familiar with Gustav Klimpt.
