I occasionally talk about art on this blog but not often. It's something I really wish I had a talent for but alas, none to be had for me. Not the case with Johanna. Something about this very talented artist and blogger really appeals to me. The themes she explores of fairytales, folklore, and female strength and savagery give lots of food for thought and like the best art, it inspires conversation. Also, there is something quite impish about her style. A definite sense of the dark side but tempered by a tongue in cheek edge. Not unlike the high camp theatrics of the hammer horror genre. Edgar Allen Poe through an Art Deco lens.
I've followed Johanna on and off for a few years now but it's a blog I always come back to. As well as her obvious talent for art, I love her personal style and her kitschy apartment.
Blackadder fan art? Yes please.
