This post is part of the For Your Inspiration Monday series showcasing the most inspiring designs out there. Each week a new artist or design style will be presented in order to get your creative juices flowing for the upcoming week. I hope you enjoy the series.

Diego L. Rodríguez is a self-taught illustrator and graphic designer based in Spain. While Dieg0′s work uses loads of different techniques there’s one common thread in most his artworks: the manipulation of portraits. These are sometimes vibrant & colourful, sometimes vintage-inspired. Whatever style you’re into, I’m sure you’re gonna get a kick out of Diego’s work.
