THE SHARING CORNER #6
Haven’t done this in quite some time, so I think it’s about time to have another dose of inspiration on this lazy Sunday! Especially here in lil’ Auckland, New Zealand, where the weather has been crazy with wind, rain, and power outages.
So, I will share with you all the lovely Joy Ang, who is as crafty as she is talented. Currently a character designer for Adventure Time, her flexible style and charming paints are irresistible and just sucks you in to whatever world she presents.
Her style holds a quirky charm in certain contexts, but can also mold into serious tones of dark and the magical when it wants to be. I love seeing the skillful strokes in her works and her great use of colour which explodes through.
And it’s amazing to see how even though the tones in her work can transition and change, the underlying style doesn’t get lost, whether simplified down or amped up. It’s something I admire and am striving to get in my own work. I see it as an amazing skill to have, kind of like a ‘generalist’ in the field of illustration.
She is an illustrator I have always kept note of and have found spouts of inspiration from whenever I’m in a blank or blocked state. And it doesn’t hurt that her new blog also teaches the art of craftiness and cute food and interior decorating!
Please go and check out this amazing talent and follow her!
