Artists who fiddle with anatomical proportions often produce work that is more odd that beautiful, but these Catherine Campbell illustrations of chic hipster females with gargantuan heads and necks that seemingly meld into their torsos definitely has an alluring appeal. Even without proper shoulders, these ladies are readily able to captivate audiences’ attention due to their near flawless facial features. The fact that most of them are dressed in spiffy ponchos and capes also helps.
Catherine Campbell is the trailblazing artist behind these surreal fashionista drawings. The Melbourne-based artist often incorporates elements of wildlife and house-like silhouettes into her images. If viewers examine the intricate patterns of the ponchos closely, they’ll realize that they are tangible fabrics that have been worked into each tantalizing rendering.
