This week’s featured art(ist) is Joanna Estep.
Estep is a illustrator and graphic designer who more specifically works in the genre of graphic novels. I found her through her personal Tumblr, and I think her artwork is really exquisite.
I feel that you can see a real range of artistic motion within the genre of illustration. I love the crisp line work and the utterly fabulous ink work. Estep is also diverse within a single illustration. For example, look at the cityscape above – all of the buildings are delineated through shadow work and window panes whereas the girl and clouds are clearly delineated through line art.
It’s great to see talented women in the illustration industry!
