There are many illustrators I love in the big wide world, but Chicago based Brett Manning's works really struck a chord with me. Not only are her characters (yes her; Brett's site is humorously titled 'Brett is a Girl') gloriously whimsical with exaggerated features, but each texture is painstakingly drawn in the finest detail, whether it be flowing locks or a fluffy jumper. Her mission is to let the 'viewer to construct their own meaning rather it be dictated to them,' which is a fitting way to look at her dream-like images. As per usual, I was particularly amazed by the way she represents knitwear, with immaculate stitch detail and the form of the garment captured realistically.
Thanks to Kay Bee (very similar to my alias) for sharing this!
Don't forget to enter the competition for Joy vouchers and a fantastic evening, if you're London bound next week!
