"One of my favourites, and I worked very hard on it. I never liked drawing standard heroine pictures of Nausicaa looking cheerful. I couldn’t draw her disconnected from the story. Nausicaa looking out of the picture and smiling just seemed wrong to me. When she’s alone, I always imagined her looking very unapproachable. Not because she was intimidating, but because of a quiet isolation, like she wasn’t part of her surroundings at all."- Hayao Miyazaki

Nausicaa’s got a lot on her mind.


cries!!!! Nausicaa art on my dash ;-;

New obsession: Coles Phillips. Here are some of my favourites of his magazine covers. Be lucky that I’m limited to 10 photos per post because there’d be a lot more. Holy crap, I love him.

I’m so honored to say that I drew today’s Google doodle of Maria Callas, the renowned opera singer!

I’m happy to share some of the process—the whole thing took place in these last couple weeks and was a lot like doing any other freelance illustration job, except it was totally unexpected and for a much bigger audience!!!

My art director was the super talented Sophia Foster-Dimino (also a Google doodler)—she also gathered feedback for me from the doodler crew & google employees. When you’re working with a big company, there’s a lot of people that have to vet the final product! Luckily it all went very smoothly.

When I was given this project I didn’t have A CLUE about opera, so I spent a whole day reading about Maria Callas, listening to her existing recordings, and watching the few live videos of her performances. She is amazing! Her voice extended beyond the regular range for female singers and she had an innate gift for interpretation—she could literally sing anything written for the female voice, and sing it better than anyone else. She also had a really interesting life—Underdog beginning! Personal struggles! High-profile scandal! Crazy weight-loss! Unusual voice!

I included more info about each step of my process in the image captions— read on if you like!

Thanks to all the google doodlers for letting me be an honorary doodler today, and thanks to everyone who’s said something encouraging or recognized my work, I’m incredibly humbled and grateful to you all!
