    Great share! And the monkeys at WordPress decided to Freshly Press your post featuring someone else’s work!
    Cool! A win/win!

    Love it! Congrats on FP!
    Reminds me a lot of 70′s Eastern Bloc artwork… while a lot of people don’t necessarily acknowledge it for what it is, I do love the style. Not only for sentimental reasons, but because the simple, clean lines and the bright colors are always refreshing, especially in such a visually overloaded world :)

    I love the top one, Would be the kind of canvas I would put up on the wall… Simple, Yet beautiful… I have seen a lot of simplistic ‘Minimalist’ artwork lately and I just think it is wonderful :-)

    Great illustrations! Very creative artwork!

    60s Euro ‘etch-a-sketch’ – like far out daddyo!

    I love this style. I am an infographic junkie, I bet she could create some cool ones!

  15. 

    I just had to come back for another look. :)

    Very reminiscent of the 60s corporate communication

  21. 

    well i just love this…. this dood is going all over my inspiration tumblr!

  22. 

    I’d never heard of “Bust Magazine” until now. It sounds like the title of a men’s mag! Still, I’m not disappointed–the illustrations by Lan Truong are (almost) as arousing as photos of nude women!

  23. 

    very old school cool

  24. 

    I think Lan can try for the Google Doodle’s job ;)

  25. 

    The illustrations are wonderful. The textures of the work reminds me a little of woodblock printing. I love how the lines give added depth to the pieces =]

  26.

  31. 

    Love her style – fresh and retro at the same time.

  32. 

    Oh my goodness, I totally agree. These are exactly the style I love too. Stunning.

  33. 

    This is really a good work. I appreciate your efforts behind that. Have a great day!

  34. 

    Love the simplicity too. Didn’t know her. Thank you for sharing her brilliant work. Cheers, BBG

  35. 

    very nice and clear. I hope, we see more of this art.

  36. 

    Now I miss my spirograph.

  37. 

    but her apartment is a mess. . . .

  38. 

    YOU GUYS thanks for all the kind words! And yes, my apartment’s a bit on the messy side, but I know where everything is! Haha.

  39. 

    HI LAN, I’m so glad you saw my post. I’m a big fan of your illustrations, as are the people reading my blog. Keep it up!

  40. 

    Clean and simple; great stuff!

  41. 

    Talent that I don’t have, yet talent I appreciate very much: simply wonderful!

  42. 

    I think it’s cool how she uses mathematical shapes but still manages to make them look retro by not filling them with full, untainted colors. A bit of a simplistic, childlike style but very sophisticated and consistently worked through.. It’s admirable when people can define themselves like that! I love it too :)

    These aren’t CG pieces, are they? They seem hand-drawn.. You can’t really tell anymore nowadays I suppose, but still.. :)

    These somehow remind me of sushi’s

    Lan is the BEST! I’m very lucky to have her work with me at BUST. :)

  45. 

    They are all sweet design ;o) and my taste. It gives relaxed after pressured work… It will be wonderful if you make letter pad and envelop with those designs!

  46. 

    I like the design for Chicago — very symbolic and true!

  47. 

    amazing! truly inspiring work! thanks for sharing!

  48. 

    So simple, so beautiful.

  49. 

    Gorgeous, they bring back memories of 1960′s china patterns my aunt had. Amazeballs!

  50. 

    Beautiful line art. I wish I could learn from the artist.
