This week at the art gallery, I enjoyed the work of Elia Murray. Murray is an illustration major. Her character designs are very childlike and they seem to be influenced by Disney. Murray says it would be a dream to work for Disney or for Cartoon Network. She took a tour at Robot Chicken and would like to intern there. Her work mostly involves water colors and she has recently been getting into 3D art.
Murray’s inspiration came from her parents. Both of her parents were water colorists and they encouraged her to become an artist. Not only does she draw, paint, and sculpt, she also writes! She is currently working on a book about one of her poems. I just really loved her work because it brings out your inner child and her characters were adorable.
