MELISSA WHITAKER Wild
digital illustration printed on metal
12" x 12"
I am an eccentric nerd who loves technology and incorporating the traditional mediums of acrylic painting and ink on paper, with pixels and bytes is a blend of the old with the new. I began creating custom illustrations for business websites, presentations, and social media artwork 6 years ago. Digital technology has enabled me to bring my love of graphite, ink, and acrylic into a virtual world that is rapidly becoming a new reality. The characters I create have a graphite appearance that is composed in a colorful, luminous environment in order to illustrate that there is more color in the world than what we often see in ourselves. People often see the negatives in the world and not the beauty that surrounds us every day. My work displays the optimistic hope that envelopes us if we only let it.
