Today's artist is named Gregory Euclide. His work bridges the gap between 2d and 3d with fantastical background scenes that are embellished by gorgeous 3d elements. His pieces are soft, with a slightly dream-like quality that reaches out and makes me want to take a walk in the world he has created. His eye for colors makes sure that every piece is balanced perfectly, with a range of hues that make up the soothing base tone of the piece, but also with a few complimenting colors that really pop in a way that draws your eye around the scene. I could rave all day about his use of geometric shapes within an organic world, or his breathtaking command of all the various supplies he uses to make these beautiful works, but I would rather just let you see for yourself.
I've gathered a pretty big collection of artists that consistently leave me breathless with their work. Instead of keeping all of this beauty to myself, I've decided to share it with the blog world. I don't know how often this series will be updated, simply because I'm not a very consistent person, but I've got enough names piled up to last for at least a couple of months of weekly posts.
This post features an artist named Annie Wu. According to her bio, she graduated from Maryland Institute of Art with a BFA in illustration. She's done work for various clients, including DC and Vertigo. Her often uses muted colors and pastels, but her style twists those colors into the realm of creepy. Her line quality allows for details, while still maintaining a playful and almost cartoony feel. She has a good eye for composition, as you can see from her book jacket designs. But enough with the words, lets get to the pretties.
