i received a new book about a week ago filled with fabulous artists creating pieces by non traditional methods. i have always been drawn to artists who use unconventional and innovative ways to produce artwork. from cut paper, needlework to unusual fabrics. its no longer about what is being created but more so the technique that leaves an impression in your mind.
i have to say my favorite illustrators right now include lisa soloman, carolina melis and peter callesen.
