Into the imagination...

Have you ever seen art that took you away?  Be it in your imagination, thoughts or spirit.  Occassionally I like to highlight work that I find revitalizing.  This young artist Chanel Hunt does that.  When I first learned about the amazing artwork that she was creating I reached out to speak with her more about it.  Check out what she had to say about her creative imagination by visiting her website.  Also good news...all of the work you see here plus more is available for immediate purchase at  chanelhunt.com

About the artist

Chanel Hunt is a freelance illustrator, and comics artist currently working out of a little hovel in Northern California. It was in that overcast land where she earned her BFA in Illustration from California College of the Arts, and has been working away ever since. For her, the most interesting aspect of her work is when imagination and reality collide.  She is invested in showing this juxtaposition in her work. When she's not drawing she can be found listening to music, baking, or going for long walks.

Being a creative person I am often misunderstood. I want to somehow be more understood through my art and other forms of expression. Art does that for me. It makes me feel as though I communicate well and clear. I am okay if it the communication appears ambiguous...because even ambigious communication it is still communication and it is still clear...clearly I’m being ambiguous. -La’Shay S. Crayton
