  1. Artist: Amze Emmons

    October 10, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

    Ironically, these images of a world in disarray are quite pleasing to the eye. I find Amze Emmons use of delicate line work against invisible, moody silhouettes in conjunction with his bold color choices alluring. 


  2. Artist: Ginette Lapalme

    October 4, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

    There are so many wonderfully happy things happening in the world of Ginette Lapalme. Bright colors, child-like doodles, diamonds and cats. So many cats! I have quite a soft spot in my heart for the fury little creatures, mainly due to my affections towards my own felines, Peru and Lima. I have no idea what is going on with her art and sometimes that is a good thing.

    I recently received my own cat amulet from Ginette’s Etsy shop. To my surprise I received my necklace in a mint colored box decorated by hand with marker and butterfly stickers, sealed with pink cat motif tape. In addition to my fabulous new necklace, I also received 2 itty bitty artist books and a yellow strawberry eraser (just like the ones I use to collect as a kid).

  3. Artist: Michael C. Hsiung

    Bearded mermen, horned creatures and bears, oh my! The world created by the hand of Michael C. Hsiung is wonderfully skewed and filled with an odd assortment of mythical creatures. Each piece is paired with an equally charming (and sometimes lengthy) title, for example the last piece on the left: On the lesser known labors of Sir Anthony of Tuscany and how the exodus of the Lithuanian bears began counters the piece on the bottom right: On the Lithuanian bear’s revenge against the sons of Sir Anthony of Tuscany. And yes, he finds drawing hair to be therapeutic. 

  4. Artist: Becca Stadtlander

    August 15, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

    As an illustrator, Becca Stadtlander creates images worth more than just a thousand words. She develops scenes and characters of magic and intrigue. Plus her sense of color is magnificent; she can flood an image with warm tones without it being harsh or over baring (see Living Room below). As a bonus you can purchase prints of her originals through her Etsy shop. 


  5. Artist: Liam Stevens

    August 6, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

    Armed with a Pentel 0.7mm mechanical pencil, pile of colored paper and scalpel, Liam Stevens uses these basic materials to create images through expressive lines and shapes.  Liam’s impeccable skill at illustration and shading invites the viewer into these 2-dimensional worlds of whimsical realism.  

    Liam further explores his creativity by transforming his flat drawings into interactive scenes in this animated music video for My Robot Friend.
