This week’s featured artist is Teagan White an illustrator and designer from Chicago. Her illustrations focus on flora and fauna and are reminiscent of children’s book illustrations (like Beatrix Potter). Her work is very intricate and playful and fits in nicely with the current Fall and Winter seasons. Below are a few examples of her work and for information check out the links below.

Featured Artists: Mat Miller

Featured Artist: Mat Miller

This week’s featured artist is the vibrant Mat Miller who is an illustrator and graphic artist from the UK. He works in the medium of watercolours, acrylic ink on paper and digital illustrations.  His distinct color pallet is what drew me to his work as I’m always a sucker for pink, purple and blue hues and paired with black his work has a layered effect. The combination of vibrant colors and black details gives off a more dynamic feeling instead of a flat image. I also enjoy how his illustration subjects tend to be animals (who can resist?). What I find most interesting about his work however is the various elements of his pieces and the amount of details contained in each. You can see his digital design background as the piece grab your attention visually from the get go but it’s the smaller elements you find after looking at it for a while that really grow on you. As well as the watercolor effects and the sublime lines of his work. For more information about him check out the selection of his work below and links to where to find him.

Featured Artist: Muxxi

Featured Artist: Muxxi

This week’s featured artist is illustrator Muxxi from Guatemala City. Her medium of choice is digital illustrations and murals of her futurist color explosion. I love the chaos of her work and the visual feast for the eyes. Her way of blending color and subjects together into a diorama of this strange alien world is glorious. It reminds me of the video game world Katamari Damacy which is equally as visually vibrant. What I enjoy most about her work though is how happy it is, it’s so joyful to view her work and find all the elements that make it up, you can’t really view her work and not crack a smile. I hope to see more murals from her as I think her digital works translates very well into the medium of street art. Check some of her work out below, and links to find 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.

Featured Artist: David Fleck

Featured Artist: David Fleck

David Fleck is a UK based illustrator that combines his love of architecture and art to create his pieces.  He does many types of illustrations but his cityscapes are what really won me over. His European cityscape prints are crafted with such detail and show his meticulous attention to the architecture.  I enjoy how the prints have such an old timey romantic feel to them yet also have modern elements. Whether it’s the city in the clouds or skyscrapers with hot air balloons you cannot escape the crafted whimsical nature of them. The muted color tones with the pops of color work very well to heighten the over feel of his work. I really enjoy them and think it’s a breath of fresh air in an age where people (myself included) are so into surrealism.

Featured Artist: Elle Moss

Elle Moss is a photographer from Ann Arbor, Michigan who creates delightful self-portraits and landscapes. I love how muted her color saturation is on her self-portraits and her still life photographs. It creates this retro film feel and makes them feel like hazy dreams. She also has a series of fun self-portraits where she layers photographs on top of each other in post to create multiple versions of herself or other items which I find beyond charming (check out her Flickr to see those). The idea is frequently used by photographers but is well executed and she uses it to create additional whimsy (who can say no to more whimsy?). I would defiantly recommend having a look at her playful photography.

Andrekart Photography is this week’s featured artist because I thought it was right in the spirit for Valentine’s Day. Her photography has a vintage aesthetic and focuses mostly on still life photos and nature. It’s very romantic without being overbearingly cute or kitschy. I also love her color combinations (pink is one of my favourite colors) and think her photos really pop with color. Check out her photography!

Pick of the Week: Wishcandy

Pick of the Week: Wishcandy

My pick of the week for this week is the delightful Wishcandy or Sashiko Yuen who makes amazing artwork and sells prints through Society6. She use to run a store on Etsy too that had pins as well as prints but she closed it down for health reasons just before Christmas (which is a shame but hopefully she’ll launch it again when she’s feeling better).  I picked up the two smaller prints from her Etsy store and the large one is from Society6. I just love her work and find her fierce female portraits super cute and delightful.  If you want to find out more about Wish Candy check out her website and her Tumblr!

*Edit: Sorry this edit is a day late but I was in Toronto, she actually reopened her Etsy store on the weekend which is exciting. It may be only temporary so if you see something you like order ASAP. Link here!

Featured Artist: Kevin Russ

Kevin Russ is a photographer from Portland, Oregon that takes all his current photos with his iPhone using various phone apps to adjust and filter his image. The results are sweeping landscapes and nature shoots that you will have a hard time believing could possibly be having been taken on a phone.  He is currently able to support himself solely on sales of these images and travel around the US and Canada finding the perfect shots and seeing landscapes that are hidden away past the cities and the highways we are used to. The dream I am sure of most non-professional photographers. His photos are so rich in a color and I find them utterly breathtaking. I highly suggest checking out his work and trying to wrap your head around how he got that using a phone.

Featured Artist: Amy Hamilton

Amy Hamilton is a Canadian illustrator and graphic designer that uses both digital applications and traditional mediums to create her work. I found out about her through Society6 and fell in love. I have a soft spot for wildlife and I love her classic depiction of them. All of the work I’ve seen of her has had this breathtaking water color technique which adds so much to the familiar images and makes them fresh again. The watercolor also makes these sometimes fierce animals seem so soft and approachable. The dripping effect on the antlers of the elk and moose also delights me. It reminds me of the newest crazy of watercolor tattoos, in which her work probably would look spectacular as. She is still a graphic design student so hopefully afterwards she’ll continue making illustrations. Take a look below at some of her work and how to find out more about her:
