Kaspian Shore is a self-taught painter, born in 1983.
Most of the artist’s youth was spent in anguish and isolation, making
poetry and art one of the few ways to comfort him in his grief and to
communicate. Kaspian’s portraits of gentle, androgynous boys are
haunting us like washed-out memories of the ghosts of our pasts, hiding
the sadness of many untold stories behind their empty, questioning eyes.
The painting above, a portrait of Harry Potter character, Luna Lovegood is an exceptional example (a a rare female subject) of Kaspian’s work.
Kelly McKernan is an artist and illustrator based in Atlanta, Georgia who has always possessed the ambition to be a full time creator. While her formal training was in traditional painting, her focus has been in mixed media, specifically in combining film photography and advanced darkroom techniques with aqueous media painting. Great stuff.
Currently loving Katie Scott’s work. So much so, a print is currently being ordered. Since I can’t define it any better, here is what her illustrations represent in her own words:
"I gather my interest in early science and particularly antiquity’s habit of entirely fabricating the inner workings of the world around them. I like the idea that in an age of such scientific uncertainty, anybody with enough conviction in their theory (and a well drawn diagram) could claim science for themselves, resulting in incredibly strange and peculiar scientific thought. So with this in mind, my aim was to make a book of fantasy science, with a focus on the hybridisation between different categories of nature"
