once stephanie dowell moved to austin, tx she was forced to experiment w/ all sorts of different mediums after leaving her oils and canvases behind in a storage unit in portland. having worked mainly w/ oils since she was only a wee five year old, stephanie began to experiment w/ all sorts of mediums. stephanie employs everything from glitter pens, metallic pencils, pearlescent inks to colored pencils and water colors. she's been having a grand time sorting out her process w/ her latest work. she draws, scans, tweaks in photoshop, then draws some more, scans them again, photoshops a bit more and then repeats the process til she's happy w/ her images. what has emerged are adorably forlorn electro kitties, flourescent mazes and acid trip landsacapes. a little bit reminiscent of the black velvet paintings i so badly wanted by bff's older brother douglas to win for me when i was 12, i can't help but want one of these images for my bedroom. oh but wait! stephanie is also a super talented photographer...just check out the post below.
