I know I’ve been bad recently- no posts for some time, sorry guys, life got in the way and I didn’t feel like it, haven’t produced anything at all, plus my keyboard and my mouse has broken which kinda gets in the way. Anyway I’ve just been looking at pinterest for some inspiration for any artwork for me to do or just anything to get the artistic juices flowing again, it didn’t really help but I’ve discovered a new artist that is just simply awesome. Her name is Nanami Cowdroy, born in Australia (one of my favourite countries), and he artwork just speaks to me, it’s amazing, I’ve always been a huge fan of pen and ink, there’s something very beautiful about it, the way it blends, the way you can just go crazy with it, the way it captures water onto paper, my carpet doesn’t like it too much though. Nanami’s artwork is the kind where you can stare at it for hours on end and still be picking out new bits, extremely busy, my favourite type! Nanami’s work has so much flow and energy running through it’s veins, it’s absolutely stunning. I love the fact she’s left all in monochrome, they don’t need colour, it just speaks for it’s self.
Nanami actually has a blog you can follow too which she frequently lets you know what she’s been upto and also there’s a link to some skins you can buy with her work on, I’ve never seen or bought from the website so I can’t really say if they’re any good, I think it’s only USA & Canada they sell to.
Nanami’s work does strongly eco traditional Japanese art but with a grungy modern twist, which makes sense as she lives in Australia (amazing country by the way) with an Asian background. I think it’s a brilliant and balanced mix.
