darling deerface

Little Bear Giclee Print

I'd like you to meet Devon Smith, the artist behind the darling Deerface. (Psst...I added the darling because she is!) This is a brief sampling of her illustrative work. Pretty pretty, right? I love how all the girls look either really petulant or really suspicious. And isn't petulant an excellent word? Petulant. Pet-u-lant. Sorry. This is how I amuse myself.

Double or Nothing watercolor & ink

If it Kills Me Giclee Print

I also love, in case you're interested (and I assume if you're reading this you might be), the juxtaposition between the soft feel of these pieces, color-wise, tendril-wise (both plants and hair), and the strange emotional edge of the subject matter (suspicion, anger, jealousy). Intriguing, yeah? I think so. Also, she's from Wellington, NZ, and she's pondering a career detour into tattoo artistry. Whoa, get a load of those details. Ms. Devon Smith probably couldn't get any sweller.
I wonder if she has a cat...?
