Ann Macarayan Pins Up Ramona Flowers And Sends Pokemon To Gravity Falls [Art]

One of the things I particularly enjoy about looking at art school students’ work is that, while the students have their own unique visual flourishes, they’re also in a period of intense experimentation. Looking over Minneapolis College of Art and Design student Ann Macarayan‘s work, I can see details that could very well come to typify her style: little marks that add emotion to the faces, red and blue noses that make her characters a tad more cartoony, careful attention to the fit and wear of her clothing. But she’s constantly testing out new styles and media as she learns and grows as an artist.

Macarayan’s illustrations offer a sense of her artistic range, but she also keeps a diary comic called Dayhaps, and she’s been working with some neat digital patterns. I’m rather partial to her swearing skulls pattern (warning: swearing), but she also has patterns of terrariums, smiling Shiba Inus and Japanese foods. She also sells patterned products at Society6.
