Erin’s profile states:
“I am a practicing multi-disciplinary artist and commercial illustrator. I am the current cultural genealogy mapping intern for The Depot in Auckland New Zealand and a director of both Method and Manners studios and The Busy Nice which I operate with my sister Leah.”
I just went to her blog, Artist Erin Forsyth, for the first time, and I said to myself, “Holy crap why haven’t I been here before-?” In other words, I find her work absolutely impressive. The Busy Nice is a creative agency which she shares with her good friend and sister, Leah. It too, is a fascinating project. Make sure you check them both out.
Even though this is one of the largest drawings yet, I think this is the smallest face- but I really wanted to play with the glass reflections in the background. And despite the seemingly dark imagery, after visiting Erin’s blogs she seems to me to be an amazingly colourful person. Nicely done, Erin!
Born and raised in Auckland, New Zealand Erin Forsyth is a believer in creative thought and creative application.
