Crystal Wall Lancaster
Tonight, The Author stumbled quite incidentally on the art of Canadian Crystal Wall Lancaster. Interesting new art is always worth sharing.
Round faces framing extravagant eyes, pouted lips replacing chins, and very long necks adorn the fanciful, elongated female visions of this former animator who has returned to her roots. And she throws in a pinch of steampunk, especially in some of her sketches, to complete the relevance and coolness quotient. I like it. Right now, Lancaster has a show in LA, Cali. So her visibility factor is going up. What's plaguing me as I write is one simple question: When's the graphic novela due? Check out Crystal's blog here.
