Friday Fan Art
This week’s Friday Fan Art is from Paige, an artist whom I met on tour that found creative inspiration from the WondLa series.
It is a huge compliment for me to receive artwork from artists (at any technical level) who have been inspired by my work. Especially to strengthen technical ability. I learned so much copying artists that I admire. In fact, I still continue to do so as an exercise in style and technique.
The piece above is from a young up-and-coming artist, Paige, whom I met while on tour. Paige likes to work with digital media as well as more traditional methods such as drawing and painting. She told me she was inspired to draw a scene not illustrated in The Search for WondLa:
The cerulean creature with backward-bending legs held up his palm. “I am Rovender Kitt, an old creature in a new world.”
“I am Eva… Eva Nine,” said Eva with a smile, mimicking his gesture. “I am a new creature in an old world.”
- Pg. 102, Chapter 10, The Search for Wondla
Well done, Paige. There is some beautiful line work here (I especially like the Art Nouveau design motif). I wish the best of luck to you and hope that you continue to create. Whether you are an old creature or new, my message is the same:
Keep drawing, keep dreaming.
