Gallery Showing - Light and Joy


I have such a sense of joy whenever I see any of Orion's art. From a visual stand point alone they are stunning, I mean absolutely stunning. They are playful, but not infantile. The type of pictures that both children and adults can enjoy and find delight in, though for different reasons. If there is ever any doubt that illustration is an art form that has to be taken more seriously Orion's work proves that point. In a world where dark, edgie, and politically incorrect just for the sake of being dark, edgie, and politically incorrect her work is novel, it doesn't make any appologies nor try to explain itself. It stands on it's own. Her work doesn't try too hard, it just is. That is what makes her work so special. She doesn't try too hard, but let's it speak for itself.

Very trippy! I like the elephants with the ginkgo leaf parachutes.
