Day 24 of celebrating illustrators, painters, artists, myth makers, and melanin mages of the past, present and future of the african diaspora. Today let’s celebrate the works of the one of my favorite illustrators, Chrystin Garland. Also known as @ladygarland
I absolutely adore her color sensibilities, how effortless and organic her digital brushwork looks and feels, and the stylistic choices and cartooning (those nosessssss). Not to mention the mood and energy of these pieces!
this has absolutely nothing to do with it though!! i was thinking about a sentence in the guide to the crystal gems book where they say it was unusual for different types of gems to fuse. i like the idea that pearl + pearl = mother of pearl, rather than just pearl squared.
Also forgot to mention I got to meet the artist for the Steven Universe and the Crystal Gems comic book series, @ladygarland!! She was so awesome, she was on the panel with Zach and them and she was hilarious. definitely give her a follow, she’s super cool and I love her work on the SU comics!
