Illustration by Toyin Odutola. The way she adds color and light to her work really gives a sense of movement. Odutola essentially uses materials such as pens and markers, and some of her drawings get varnished.
Wine Stain Portraits by Amelia Fais Harnas.
I create portraits by staining fabric with red wine using a wax resist (much like batiks) to build a light/dark pattern. I may decide to add embroidery (split stitch, to be precise) or machine sewing to reinforce the design or composition. The end result is a blend of chaos and control.
These illustrations were created for Tatyana Kartasheva‘s graduation project «Sweet Store of Madam Agnesa».It is a fairy tale on adventures of a little boy Orest and his friend, fox Pylad in a magic kingdom.The artworks were done with traditional materials — pencil and watercolor on paper.
