Artist spotlight: Lost Fish

I’ve been thinking about getting some t-shirts printed for Eustratia and have subsequently been working on my illustration again after a long break. I don’t have any finished pieces to share yet but I thought I’d feature some of my inspiration. I got the dark inspiration book for my birthday a couple of months ago. It features a plethora of interesting artists, many of which are worth featuring but the one that appealed to me the most has got to be Lost Fish.

LostFish (Elodie is her real name), was born in 1983 in the south of France.

Self-taught, she began her creative development as a freelance character designer, but quickly turns to an artistic universe, creating digital paintings.

Her influences are mostly classical, inspired by the Flemish painters and the art of the 19th century, both in painting and photography, she draws mostly strange and sometimes disturbing girls, half woman and half child.

A selection of my favourite pieces from various sets:

I love the doll-like features, period clothing and surrealist elements as well as the way the hair as been drawn. I also find the colour schemes very pleasing.
