11- Do you listen to music when you draw? Favorites?
it varies depending on what i’m drawing i guess
like if I’m drawing something light and relaxed I’ll listen to balmorhea or maybe josé gonzález, but if I’m drawing something a bit ~edgy~ i’ll put on some asian kung fu generation or spinnerette
mostly 8tracks playlists though, like this and this
13- Least favorite thing to draw?
male anatomy. also rocks
15- Any weird artist behaviour you admit doing?
i behave weirdly like 89% (that is an ACTUAL statistic based on SCIENCE) of the time but idk i’m not sure if any of it pertains to artistry in particular
i like to pretend to paint my face w/ my soft paintbrushes because they feel nice
is that weird
#i bet you read 'rocks' as 'cocks'

#SO DAMN COOL
First off, her line work is simply stunning. It is an organic growth of dashes and curves much alike the spread of roots or falling of leaves- simplicity that is all encapsulating, without the hard defined lines of astute perfectionism; this astuteness can often take away from line and shape work because it implies an awkwardness of hand or inexperienced deliberation. Much alike nature and the lines in an oak, @carriwitchett’s outlines the essence of an object or organism with free flowing, non-severe imperfection, whilst involving characterising detail and, well, character.
Artists that immediately spring to mind include the illustrator of the webcomic Nimona, and perhaps influenced by many newschool illustrative/animation styles cropping up on the scene, such as Adventure Time and the Regular Show. Simplified yet dynamic, expressive drawing with a soft fantasy and earthy centre.
As a fan of b&w linework her lines are gorgeous and create a unique impression, especially her piece ‘tools of the trade’ illustration of paganistic objects, both natural and man made. The negative space creates the impression of a nature themed wallpaper or tablet. I really enjoy her peach palettes with her lines, it works especially well.
That said her line-less works are lovely also- broken out of strict, dark boundaries but shapes are perfectly defined by colour and composition, her tarot cards for example. Prime illustrations for a great understanding of negative space and harmony of form.
Somehow they manage to not only firmly grasp the fantasy of childhood and carefreeness but an important mauve hue of maturity, storytelling and artistic interpretation.
Nature is a huge fore and background element, including bows, woodlands and their inhabitants, plant stems, bearded dwellers and the lark. The occasional illustrative surrealism doesn’t go overlooked either
OH WOW OKAY, I’M OFFICIALLY DEAD
I wish I could articulate my honestly overwhelming feeling of happiness at such an in-depth and complementary assessment of my art and style but to be honest I’m completely gobsmacked
This is so spot-on when it comes to my influences, especially those of nature and fantasy! To read that my art seems to have an “important mauve hue of maturity, storytelling and artistic interpretation” really makes me so very happy because I’m constantly worried that my style and love of fantasy is slightly childish.
Also to have my linework described as “organic growth of dashes and curves much alike the spread of roots or falling of leaves” IS WONDERFUL AND LOVELY AND AHHH
This is so beautiful and I can’t stop reading it
I’m just… going to lay on the floor now…
