Inspiration: Dadu Shin
Oh, I am in love with the texture of this work. Artist Dadu Shin has an amazing way with layers and seamlessly fading colors and shapes into each other. Browsing his Tumblr archive is a treat for the eyes. Would it be appropriate to say that I ache with jealousy? (Geez, that sounds intense, doesn't it?)
But really, I so wish I had this kind of talent.
I particularly love the snippet you see above- of mountains and trees. The entire design is beautiful. It's called "Inside or Outside" and you can see it here. And you can purchase it here (very reasonable prices!).
I also think it's really cool that he posts images from his sketchbooks. I recommend reading his blog to get the story behind the illustrations.
