I spotted these illustrations as soon as they went up. Granted, that was a couple of months ago, but I wasn’t feeling well for a couple of months.
The illustrations are by Blair Thornley, one of San Diego’s many talented local artists. Thornley teaches illustration at San Diego’s City College and supports herself otherwise as a fine and commercial artist. Of her commercial endeavors she has done some very endearing animations for a Neiman Marcus Christmas campaign. You can find this commercial and her “Underwear Stories” animation at the animations section of her website. If you have 3 minutes, it’s worth a look. You’d have to hunt hours to find something so delightful on youTube.
I look Thornley’s simple line art approach. It the richness of her imagination and the confidence in her approach that make them work. It is certainly something I aspire to.
