sallymandy said...

Incredible--she did that entire two-wall piece with PENCIL? I wonder if she had assistants. The detail is amazing.

I love how she's used the animals' shapes to create fantastic compositions.

Ela said...

I especially love the Impala and the Chimp with Ibex & Kiwi Bird! These must be so stunning in 'real' life. So amazing that this was done with just a carbon pencil!

Hit 40 said...

Fantastic! I would love to see these in person... I love the details and the expressions. Also, can imagine the the craziest story behind each one. Thanks' so much for posting...

I wonder if she could pencil me in..?
I could be living very well, inside her fantasy head.

What amazing skill!! These aren't all up my alley, but that first drawing is incredibly enchanting!

God, these are so incredible. Like illustrations from the most amazing book. I especially love the zebra.

alissa said...

Lauren said...

these are incredible! they remind me of a dream.

Gabby said...

I can't believe it's just pencil! That is crazy amazing.

Miss Absinthe said...

This is the kind of exhibit I like to see in person... wow.

gangsta bride said...

These kinda remind me f where the wild things are. You should check out Jim Woodring- he's kinda similar but does a lil weirder stuff.

Lily G. said...

wow, crazy drawings. Kind of reminds me of something that would be in a fantasy children's book.

Jack Daniel said...

she makes AMAZING pictures!

Brooke said...

I really love art that builds on a popular theme, but takes it one step further, into the realm of impossibility. My grandparents had a whole level of their house dedicated to items they had collected on trips to Africa. One of these pictures could turn all that stuff into something really amazing.

The Haute-Shopper said...

These are incredible! I love the surreal feel of these and they are drawn with such precision it's almost like looking at a photo.

LENORENEVERMORE said...

i like artist to use humble objects/medium...pencil! MY-my-my...

miriam said...

the gorilla and the frog is my favourite, wheras the impala gave me the creeps...

Farah said...

Phoenix said...

I love these. May I move into the castle perched on top of the elephant? Do you think she'd mind very much? :)

Felicia|DaLipstickBandit said...
