Oh. YES! “Half-finished” work gets me every time. Insane detail beside simple lines… magic. This magic happens to be taking place on mylar. Mylar! This is the absolutely gorgeous work of Toronto based artist Kristy Blackwell. I wonder if her previous life in film has anything to do with her choice in materials:

“Trained in fine art at the University of Guelph and, thereafter, in computer animation at the University of Toronto, Kristy has had an accomplished career as a digital matte painter and compositor on over 50 feature films. But Kristy’s first love is fine art and her experience creating photo-real digital images has inspired her to experiment with various traditional techniques and materials to both create and deconstruct reality on canvas or other supports.”

Note to self: pick up some mylar.

    I have been wanting to experiment with drawing on mylar; I suppose these gorgeous drawings are the push I needed to put some on order. Absolutely stunning!
