The end of the week has arrived. Whew. I’m ready to take a break, and I’m off to a good start because I’ve been looking at delightful art for the second installment of Fan Art Friday. I tackled a specific theme last week (it was Doctor Who, go ahead and take a minute to look), but I’m changing things up this time and focusing on a single artist. I’ve been following Brianne Drouhard’s work since she worked on the Amethyst shorts for DC Nation. Amethyst, a comic book princess from the ’80s, has a special place in my heart.
Anyway, something about Drouhard’s art grabs me and makes me feel like a kid again. She’s got the gift of being able to infuse her art with storytelling; the characters she draws are expressive from head to toe. She often uses bright colors, and every piece looks like it belongs in a giant picture book (she has one of those by the way – it’s called Billie the Unicorn). Drouhard draws more than a few original characters, but she also rocks when it comes to fan art. Look at Solomon Grundy with the gals from Super Best Friends Forever:

If you need a regular fix of art from Drouhard, follow her on Tumblr and Blogspot. She posts illustrations and news regularly on both sites. I also recommend reading her webcomic Harpy Gee. The comic centers on a spunky elf girl named Harpy. She has one of the best cats ever (Pumpkin) and ends up in small town where she finds more adventure than she expects.
Finally, you can purchase prints and products featuring Drouhard’s characters at Redbubble.
