New Favourite Artists Discovery

Recently I've been lacking in posts due to constantly keeping track on University work, I do apologise! However, (sorry this isn't a post of my work, I know you're all heartbroken) in my constant search in finding artists I like and get inspired by I came across two, yes that's TWO new artists that I love. They both work as a Visual Development artist for Disney Animation which makes me love them more as I'm a sucker for a good Disney film.

The first artist being Helen Mingjue Chen, I found her on Instagram where I've found a lot of my new favourite artists believe it or not, and went on a search for websites and blogs by her to see her work in full. You can find her work here and here.

She has also done work as the main artists on this little animation called 'The Paperman' which I only found out recently but knew of the little animation months ago, so that was a nice little piece of information as the artwork in it, I really like! Here is the trailer to the animation below; it is a Disney Oscar Nominated Animated short film and here is the full animation (around 6 mins). Helen has also done work in films such as Tangled, Wreck it Ralph, Frankenweenie and Pinnochio.

The second artist is Brittney Lee, another visual dev artist for Disney Animation. I found her work through Helen Chens blog and immediately took a liking to her vibrant work. You can find her work here. Her style always seems to have that fun essence to it, her characters looking happy and bubbly, bright colour palettes and such. Brittney has a lovely style and her use of typography is very playful! She is very talented with paper layered work. Here are some of my favourites!

An Audience for a Rock Metal Festival

An Audience for a Rock Metal Festival

A gouache painting on wood of an audience at a rock metal festival. I wanted to stay away from the grungy stereotypical metal festival and go for a more vibrant psychedelic look. I experimented with styles and decided to leave the skin colour the tone of the wood.
