illustrations

18Feb11

Artaksiniya is a Russian-born artist/illustrator based in China. The following images are from her blog, and they are from a series of drawn figures with an emphasis on fashion and other material elements, as the color in these areas indicates. Formally, I like how she applies color to the gray-scale drawings; conceptually this seems to be approving of the clothing and respectful of the design that went into them. At the same time the figures do not seem all that real under the more detailed clothing, which makes me think about the role clothing plays in our self-making.
