For this week, an artist named Elia Murray displayed her artwork in the Gatov-East and West Gallery. The title of the artshow was called “Drawn Out” and it was displaying the many artworks for those graduating with a BFA of illustration and Animation.
One of her portraits that was most interesting to me was the trout. Murray mention that she would get inspiration of the colors by looking at sunsets and trouts from pinterest. She hopes to one day have her own business. Every now and then she has people send her in pictures of her cats or dogs and she paints them. Something that is really cool is that Murray is in the process of making a book for kids. It is a poem based upon creation myth. Her book is about a brown or black bear that gets frozen and turns into a polar bear. It was really nice seeing Murray’s artwork and I hope to read her book in the future.
