Artist Showcase: Chelsea Conlin

Ah Mondays. What better way to start off the week with some awesome art from a brilliant artist? I met today’s featured showcase through Deviantart and Twitter and discovered not just a wonderful digital painter, but an animal lover as well! There are really not a lot of people higher than artistic dog lovers in my book.

Chelsea Conlin 01

Chelsea Conlin is a freelance illustrator who has made her way around the world and back; she grew up in New York and moved to Rhode Island for school, then she moved to Sapporo, Japan where she spent several years teaching English before heading off to Colorado for a short stint. She now lives in the bluegrass state of Kentucky. She likes to hike, hang out with her greyhound, and most of all paint.

One of the things I love about Chelsea’s artwork is that no matter what it is, there’s a certain realism to it. Look at any of her subjects, whether it’s Cthulhu or a unicorn, every detail might possibly have come from the reality of a different world. She has a certain grasp of anatomy and depth of character that really makes her digital paintings stand out. From silly to elegant, fantastical to still lives, she is an artist to look out for.
