Creative Café #23 ★

hello folks! so today... my cough is still here, i've been tidying stuff up and been feeling a little bit glum i guess, so with that in mind, i thought what could be better than a crazy, funky, colourful Creative Café post to brighten up my day and to hopefully brighten yours up as well!!!

so stop reading this and run off to get some tea/coffee/juice and biscuits/sweets/cake!

or maybe some eggnog or mulled wine and a mince pie if you're feeling festive... which i'm not, so it's tea and party ring biscuits for me! 

anyway, today it's all about the super duper fabulous illustrator, artist and animator Tristyn Pease (sometimes aka Twiggy McBones)

Tristyn is a very groovy American artist, she likes to draw and she absolutely adores comic books + just about anything animated!

in fact, here's one of her cute mini animations...

she's not just a talented animator though, she creates the most amazing digital illustrations full of gorgeous details

i first spotted her art floating about on tumblr and just loved her loose style and fun character fan art pieces

she's a fabulous character designer and really captures some truly brilliant expressions and emotions in their faces and gestures

her work is almost always fun and fresh, with colours and themes that both children and adults can easily relate to, be amused by, admire and appreciate

i think what i love most about her work though is the way she can incorporate so many different styles into her pieces! in fact i'll shut up about it now and let you look through some more of her stuff in your own sweet time! enjoy...

pretty sweet stuff right! of course it is!!! ok it's time for some links now...
