So this is my piece for Light Grey Art Labs Animystics show,which opens on April 25 . Its a swan. I quite like swans,though I can’t exactly say why..but I’m always happy when I encounter one.You can buy prints of my picture here and be sure to also check all the other pictures , as they’re just wonderful.
I’ve had a low grade fever for over a week, but I finally fought off my crappy illness-induced doldrums and finished the cheetah!
Contemporary Art Week!
Leo and Diane Dillon
Leo and Diane Dillon were one of the greatest illustration teams in the history of Fantasy Art. Books that have used their illustrations for cover or inside art include an edition of the Narnia books, Garth Nix’s Sabriel, Lirael and Abhorsen, Her Stories and The Girl Who Spun Gold by Virginia Hamilton, The Earthsea Trilogy by Ursula K. LeGuin, Aida by Leontyne Price, The Girl Who Dreamed Only Geese by Howard A. Norman, and many, many more.
There is a blog dedicated to archiving their work here.
As kids, we grew up with our imagination running wild though our minds. As least I did! I would spend hours bent over a book, flipping recklessly through pages for words and images to feed my daydreams. Kgabale illustrated work offers up little brown girl dreams that I would have loved to come across as a child. But even as an adult, I can still appreciate and admire the creativity behind each piece.
