Amanda Palmer, eight months pregnant and exquisitely painted, recreates Damien Hirst’s Verity statue (top) in a performance art piece for the New York Public Library’s children’s book drive. Proud papa-to-be Neil Gaiman (bottom) extends a loving hand to this modern-day nude descending a staircase, after donating a copy of his own charming children’s book, Chu’s Day

For more of Palmer’s beautiful bibliophilia, treat yourself to her bewitching poetry readings of Polish Nobel laureate Wislawa Szymborska.

You Make Me Brave - inspired by the song by Amanda Cook (2013)

Amanda Penley’s Magical Tour Of The World Of Harry Potter

Amanda Penley is an New York based artist currently working as a designer for Weber Shandwick. She holds a BFA degree in illustration from the Savannah College of Art and Design ( SCAD). The artist’s creative mind is constantly fed by the movies, television and books she watches and reads as her work, the Harry Potter series below emphasizes it.

Penley’s passion about all things design is diverted to exploring cell animation and motion media. In fact, she experiments with motion in several of her works, including the magical Harry Potter series where she exhibits the different locations and famous buildings featured in the timeless story.

Amanda Penley’s tribute to the iconic Harry Potter franchise respects the story while keeping true to her modern touch. She has chosen a sober and dreary palette for the images, while maintaining consistency to the emotion of the story and the look of England where the story is set. Each picture is punctuated with a powerful quote that substantiates the importance of the location preceding it. The artist has taken a minimalist approach to the graphic series - flat designs playing with texture and clean lines.

However, it wouldn’t carry the same weight if the series didn’t have a touch of childishness or a little spell of illusion to make us  feel the same delight that Harry Potter cast over us. Penley uses her expertise in motion graphics to cleverly add a smooth motion to the magic element in several pictures.

Amanda Penley’s artistic interpretation of one of the most enchanting stories does away with the clutter and takes you straight home to the welcoming world of Hogwarts.


Little Witch Academia (リトル ウィッチ アカデミア)

Little witches for Halloween! The November issue of Animage Magazine (Amazon JP | US) showcased Yoh Yoshinari’s character designs for the new Enchanted Parade stars Amanda O'Neill, Constanze Braunschbank Albrechtsberger, and Yasminka Antonenko along with premiere veterans like Shiny Chariot, Diana Cavendish, Hannah, and Barbara. 

You Make Me Brave.

This song is just so good. I’ve been listening to it on repeat today - it’s easily one of my all-time favorites from @bethelmusic . I won’t say much - I want these amazing lyrics to speak for themselves - @amandalindseycook you say it best, ya little genius 😻⚡️😻⚡️

“I stand before You now. The greatness of your renown. I have heard of the majesty and wonder of you, King of Heaven, in humility, I bow. As Your love, in wave after wave, crashes over me, crashes over me. For You are for us, You are not against us. Champion of Heaven, You made a way for all to enter in. I have heard You calling my name. I have heard the song of love that You sing. So I will let You draw me out beyond the shore, into Your grace, Your grace. You make me brave, You make me brave. You call me out beyond the shore into the waves. You make me brave, You make me brave. No fear can hinder now the love that made a way. You make me brave, You make me brave. No fear can hinder now the promises you made.”

I pray that His bravery and courage would sweep over you right now, and fill you with all the power and strength to face whatever you’re going through. He is faithfully mighty in battle, and besides - He’s already won!

Be Brave - original print from The Worship Project. 

This is the original print that I designed for Bethel Music’s new line of merchandise. “Be Brave” was in essence taken from the theme of their recent album “You Make Me Brave”. This was turned into a tank/singlet and will be available for sale soon on the Bethel Music website.

So humbling to see people wearing it while on tour.
How good is God?!

Based on “You Make Me Brave” by Amanda Cook of Bethel Music

Done for victoriaying’s #7daysofcolor.  I have very little time to do art for myself given the drain my commute puts on me, but I kept doing color sketches of these on my lunch breaks then fleshing them out over the weekend.  Time for personal art exists once again!  haha

So yes, color ladies ladies ladies. :)
