Post by Alice Palace

Last week I made a find which was the work of yellena james – very VERY inspiring indeed. This is the first of her designs that I saw – and it makes me want to jump into it!Yellena James << Illustration Friday

She uses pens, inks, markers and acrylics to combine complex abstract forms into dazzling images which take on lives of their own.

“My latest works further explore the intricate and delicate forms of an imaginary ecosystem, twisting and floating together in an alluring environment. I attempt to create an ethereal place which is hypnotically familiar and yet hauntingly exotic, adding tiny little details in a sort of compulsive meditation, until a perfect balance is created. The intricacy and high detail, along with hints of existing organic shapes lend to the intimacy and believability of each new world. ”
