Art Sharing #5: Willow Jenkinson (colored pencils & marker)


Willow Jenkinson
(contemporary)


Her medium is colored pencils, fine liner, and permanent marker -- and she does things with it that I never imagined were possible! Seeing her artwork makes me feel as if I am peering into someone's dream; everything is so intense and meaningful. The colors are delicious and the linework bold. She has such a distinctive style! She did some Mucha-style pieces (which I have included in this post) and managed to be clearly Mucha-esque while still being distinctively herself. I love her abstracted hands and the way she blends images so that often you don't notice one aspect until you look closer (such as the raven here or here) Most of all I love her symbolism and her unique deity exploration, especially with Egyptian aspects.

Her art reminds me of the way mine would be if I drew freely.




Her artist comments often add a lot to the piece so I encourage you to click the pics to see what she had to say!


Abundance


This is based off of a selfportrait IIIIIIII took! I discovered her and favorited a ton of her work, so she went to my gallery to see who this 'belenen' was and was inspired to draw an image based off of one of my photos! I'm soooooo honored. ♥ And I ADORE that she included my gorgeous stretch marks! :D :D :D And I love the necklace she put on -- I wish I had one like it! Here's the photo that inspired her:
