MODERN IMPRESSIONIST.

Artist and illustrator Nicole Gustafsson creates beautiful worlds using gouache paints.  Shes uses Impressionist tricks such as the inclusion of movement as a crucial element of human perception and experience.  She creates beautiful stylized dream worlds and transports us to another land that is charming, colorful and peaceful.  Sprinkling nerdy references in an subtle way without it looking too “pop” arty.  Its closer to a Claude Monet painting than anything that I’ve seen in the ‘geek art” style.  Though the nerdiness is there in spirit.

A SOFTHEARTED NERD.

Illustrator Nan Lawson has a style that I can only describe as “sweetheart nerd”. Her pieces combine a soft and sweet quirky flair to recognizable pop culture figures. She has a unique style of portraiture and character busts.  What I love about her work is the cute way she draws characters with their eyes closed.  Its a  soft, peaceful and meditative feeling.  These characters come to life with the detailed line work and lovely use of color.

Here we have Mr. Fox from Wes Anderson’s Fantastic Mr. Fox

Here there is a series called “the little ones”. These drawings have the semi creepy doll dot eyes and can either be interpreted as eerie or cute, or maybe a little of both. This is Harry Potter, obv.
