Featured Artist: Nanami Cowdroy

Cable Cranes by Nanami Cowdroy

Nanami Cowdroy is an artist from Sydney Australia with a mixed Japanese and European lineage. She signs off her art with a signature but also with a red stamp that includes two Japanese characters which happen to read Nanami or Seven Seas. These two signatures are representative of her style which combines iconic Japanese elements with familiar subjects and environments.

Her creativity is limitless, but yet rather simple in concept. Blow Fish as seen above for example is kind of genius. Her details are just amazing, and in a piece like Ink Pond (seen below), you really start to wonder where the drawing starts. I would love to see a time lapse clip of Cowdroy at work. She is definitely one of my favorite artists right now, so be sure to check out her website for more amazing art.
