This isn't typical feature for me to do but I came across an amazing artist and I just had to share. Megan of Studio MME dreamed of becoming an artist. Her parents supported this dream and urged her to get a degree in art and English with a simple catch... she had to start up her business before she graduated. She was successful in this goal and was even commissioned to illustrate a book shortly after.
What strikes me the most about her artwork is that it is all done in pen and ink. Every one of her illustrations is beautiful. Take a look...
Megan's Artist Statement:
"Imbued with an Old World style, my quirky pen and ink illustrations shine with childhood wonder. A sense of humor and an eye for detail lightens the otherwise densely cross-hatched pieces I create. The Victorian and Edwardian periods continue to fascinate me with their outlandish outfits and moral rigidity. Using the traditional black and white medium of that time, I feel a connection to that era, although I certainly don’t feel a need for the wardrobe."
