Week 3: Brittney Lee
First of all, I want to say that I am not entirely sure where this falls on the art-illustration spectrum, but I am thinking it leans more towards the illustration side. I came across Brittney's art completely accidentally while browsing through blogs, and immediately fell in love with her work. Though she does do the more standard 2-dimensional type of art as well, what really drew me in were the pieces made out of cut paper, like this homage to Disney's Little Mermaid, done on assignment for a charity auction. It's not a medium I usually think of when I think of illustration, or at least not used in this particular manner. I love the interaction of flat paper colors with the intricate details. The interplay of shadows caused by the "pop-up" design is a really nice touch as well. To me, Brittney's art was a breath of fresh air after looking through so many 2-dimensional pieces.
