Pick of the Week: Ree Artwork

Pick of the Week: Ree Artwork

This week’s artist is illustrator Ree from Venezuela and Florida who sells prints and originals. She posts videos as well on Youtube of her work and process which I enjoy since she uses Copic markers which I am trying to learn techniques for. Her gorgeous style really attracted me to her work and I just had to pick something up s0 I bought an original of a mermaid and a few prints that I adore. I’m really happy with her work and always looking forward to see what she does next.  You can check out her blog, and her store for more of her work.

Zine of the Month: Shimotsuma

April’s zine of the month is Shimotsuma produced by Stray Gang with various artists like Jane Mai, Punimelt, Jean Liang, Koyamori, and more. It’s a 40 paged limited edition illustration zine that is based of the story Shimotsuma Monogatari (Kamikaze Girls). I’ve never read the book or seen the movie but I fell in love with the zine the moment I saw it a Expozine last year. The colors and great combination of various types of illustrations work really well. There is comics sections, typography, and silk screening to name a few. Not to mention Shimotsuma is really well editted and put together beautifully. You can pick up the zine through Fan Grrlz and have a look below.

Pick of the Week: Defective Pudding

defective pudding (5)Pick of the Week: Defective Pudding

This week’s pick is artist Defective Pudding, a call out to Halloween which has past but is not forgotten (may it lives on in our hearts year around). She offers a lot on her store from original illustrations, prints, zines, brooches and more. I found out about her through Dark Town Sally’s Instagram and fell in love. What really drew me into her work was the spectacular illustrations she was doing for Inktober, so much detail and atmosphere, they feel like stills from a classic cartoon. The three originals I ended up purchasing are beyond perfect and I am just so enamoured with them. I may have also bought one of each of her zines (although I think I’m missing one which I don’t know how I missed that). My favourite out of the lot is Tuffet which is darling and reminds me of ‘The Gashlycrumb Tinies’ by Edward Gorey. All the zines are well executed and the quality of them is superb (I complain about paper quality too much on my blog so just know I approve). She was also super cute and sent along with all her Halloween orders a bunch of trick or treat bags, such a great surprise. I am going to get good use out of my sticky bug slinger she gave me, lol. Below I have a ton of photos of what I picked so you can have a closer look and you can check out more of her artwork on Instagram!

Zine of the Month: Soup

October’s zine of the month is Soup by Ally Burke which showcases some of her sketchbooks between 2012-2014. It’s a 28 paged zine that features black and white sketches as well as some colored ones on 5×8 glossy paper. The reason I choose it over all the others she’s done in the past is partially because it’s still available, and I feel like lately I’ve featured a lot of zines that aren’t in production anymore. It also happens to be a great zine with a high production value and Ally’s sketches are just as ghoulishly delightful as her other work. Her tumblr is filled with snippets of her sketchbooks and every time she shares a bit it makes me want to just flip through them all. So it’s a great way to have a part of that. Soup is available to purchase here, along with a ton of stickers, originals and other goodies (the shop is closing temporarily in a few days so best to look now). She also has a coloring book zine of monster girls that is pretty awesome too, here and you can also check out her Instagram where she’s doing Inktober this month!

Featured Artist: Madelen Foss

Featured Artist: Madelen Foss

Today’s featured artist is illustrator Madelen Foss from Norway. She makes eye catching bright and neon pop surrealist creations. What I enjoy the most about her illustrations is how some have sinister elements to them that are hard to notice straight off the bat. She is also not afraid to combine random elements or patterns together and it really works. Her illustrations just pop off the page and have a really 3D quality to them. That might be something she picked up while studying animations, regardless it’s very effective and her work is stunning.  You can see more of her work below and further information on where to find her.

Featured Artist: Liza Corbett

Featured Artist: Liza Corbett

This week’s featured artist is illustrator and painter Liza Corbett who currently resides in New York. Her subject matter is usually women who seem out of the darker side of the 19th century during the more pagan and occult period of American history. It’s no surprise that she cites the Summer-Land as inspiration of her work.  I’ve been memorized by her work and love the looming atmosphere. I have one of her dolls and everything about her work whether it’s her dolls or water colors or sketches has this brilliantly crafted atmosphere and you can image the story behind it. It’s fun to get lost in her work and get swept up in the world she’s created. Check out some of her work below as well as links on where to find her.

Pick of the Week: Gusosos

Pick of the Week: Gusosos Land

Gusosos Land is an Etsy store run by illustrator Raquel that specializes in illustration prints, wood jewelry and other items featuring her work.  Based out of Spain, Raquel has imaged this whole fantastic world of yeti like creatures that I just adore the style of. I’ve been admiring her shop for months and finally couldn’t resist when she added this brooch to her shop. It’s really divine, I love two part brooches and this floating heart was impossible to say no to. She was super sweet too and after putting in my order the next day I received an email just checking in on when it will be shipped. I love store owners who are clearly passionate about their work. Also when I received it last week it was bundled up in the cutest of packages and she even included a mini-print of another one of her yeti creatures (which I cannot wait to put on my art wall). I will definitely be picking up more things from her in the future, if you wanted to find out more information about her work check out her website!
