Tamara (@alexgold_art) is my pick for today’s talent!
If you don’t know what A Year on Talents is here you can find the description of the project: A Year on Talents Project
Tamara is a graphic designer and illustrator based in California. She has her own brand and shop Alex Gold Studios (a bunch of useful links are on the bottom!) and spends some of her time creating art for it. There’s a unique style on her paintings especially when she goes for characters: it’s a way of coloring and drawing that reminds me of the past a little bit and I just adore it.
She uses very thick lines and a lot of plain colors, working with contrasting tones very well and overall she’s capable of putting together gorgeous compositions using super simple shapes and lines.
The first pic is sooooo cute! She painted this lovely puppy with all those hearts for Valentine’s Day and now I just want it! Notice how clean this illustration is, there’s really just two colors and some lines so the complexity isn’t high, tho I guarantee you it’s not easy to be able to take so little and transform it into a beautiful and precise result. It’s almost like I can see you need to truly master the technique and your subject before you can start cutting away pieces with knowledge and get a working illustration that doesn’t lose its charm. I love it.
The second image is her “Mother Earth” illustration, and I can’t even explain myself I just think this has to be one of her best pieces like.. ever. And I can’t say I’ve seen them all to judge this one that high, I’m just going to say if you showed me there’s one hidden somewhere that’s even better than this I wouldn’t believe you. Again I’m stunned cause is this the best woman I’ve ever seen drawn? No. Is it the colors then? Probably not. The composition? No. But is it overall one of the best illustrations I can remember looking at? Oh yes, it’s on top of the list. Simple colors, simple lines, astonishing painting. How does she do that?
