Haven't been able to update for the past....MONTH?! Been super busy with school and I haven't really felt compelled to show you people what I've been doing. I will be updating soon with either OLD work or if it's any good.....MAYBE some new work/rough sketches. I'm still working on my art shyness!

I have a show coming up in February that I am/should be preparing for.

All good things!

Recently I have been looking at the work of Brandi Milne. I absolutely love her use of color and the way she exaggerates proportion and curvature to reinforce femininity in her figures (left).

It is clear her inspiration for the Season Series is a play off of Mucha's Seasons (right).

Most of her work is very playful and warm, filled with funny and cutesy creatures in dream-like environments. Her work is so beautiful and inspiring! I want to draw all day today.

My first attempt at working out the fabric on my dad's shirt turned out looking too sculptural and harsh. Lawrence Yun suggested I soften out the tones with tissue to make it look more like fabric.

It turned out much better, I think. So far this has project has taken me approximately 6 hours...I'm working at a slow pace but I'm getting there. I still have a lot of work ahead of me and I'd say it's about 30% finished. Still have to work in a lot of detail....patience, patience, patience.

Oh you know, just starting yet ANOTHER blog/interactive site.

Hello, my name is Marielle and I'm an art student and an aspiring illustrator. The purpose of this blog is to post mostly my own personal artwork, sketches, photos and inspirational artwork. I'm currently working on a graphite illustration of my dad and me. I will be updating with progress shots soon....
