Our group has been inspired by the work of Audrey Kawasaki and are looking to incorporate some of the ideas and graphical styling into our concept artwork for the Lepid Valley. The idea of bringing the imagery to play with the wood grain texture is something we all love and will try to bring that approach to our digital work. Audrey is working with traditional media directly onto real wood, we can simulate that pretty well I feel. I hope to bring a dash of colour as well, since I am working in the Butterfly zone at the moment.
Here are a few of the wonderful images from Audrey Kawasaki's gallery pages - a must see as there are HEAPS more:
