Naya Ismael illustrates moods and emotions

Naya Ismael

It often happens that to describe our state of mind or what we are feeling in a particular moment we use images, sayings that are now part of the common vocabulary. It has happened to all of us to have our heart in pieces, to melt for love, to have to stop and rest and recharge the batteries, to have to disconnect the brain. Naya Ismael illustrates exactly all of these states of mind.

Naya Ismael is a young illustrator from Damascus, Syria, who shares her work, digital and otherwise, on her Instagram profile that speaks directly to our hearts. 

Naya takes all those phrases we use to describe our emotional state and, literally following them, she draws them.

Thus, the protagonists of her illustrations feel so light that they float in mid-air, or suffer for love as if the thorns of a hundred roses pierced her skin.
