Kristina Laurendi Havens: My main source of inspiration is the human figure, whether I’m painting portraits or drawing from a live model, the figure is a never ending source of inspiration. I love to experiment with new techniques and combinations of materials.
Jim Bradshaw: Jim loves everything art and creative and puts that passion into all assignments. Humorous illustration and cartoon surrealism is what he is drawn to. Some topics you’ll find showing up in his recent work are dreams, the tyranny of time, life & death, childhood versus the tainted adult world we all exist in, good and evil and just plain fun whacked out made up worlds that swirl around in Jim’s brain.
Hi I’m Vanessa and I run inkblok from my sunny (sometimes), Brighton studio on the south coast of England.
My background is in Art, Architecture and 3D Design although I have been creating and drawing since I was a very little girl!
I love detailed drawing, pattern and typography and I hope for inkblok to become my main creative outlet for my illustrative prints and stationery.
Bridbird: These three lovely ladies are female Satin Bowerbirds. The male of this species of Australian bird is an amazing blue colour and is well known for it’s bower building abilities and collecting of blue objects to make himself look even bluer. But! I personally think the females, with their lovely olive green plumage, are the real beauties.
Retro Whale: This gangsta bear was inspired by Master P lyrics and blue bears with radios.
