“A Nature Unknown”: Couple Created a Series of Illustrations Inspired By the Outdoors

Kourtney and Richard Jossy met at Portland State University where they both received bachelors in fine arts. After graduating they began collaborating on illustration projects, married, and started a nature unknown – a personal illustration series inspired by their shared interests in the outdoors, the unexplained, and introversion.

Although they don’t have a big following, their art is definitely worth checking out. I really enjoyed browsing through their Instagram page and we believe that you will enjoy it, too.
