An Imagination That Looks Great On Paper: The Creative Mind Of Lily Seika Jones

Lily Seika Jones was born in San Antonio, Texas in 1989. She was raised in Vancouver, Canada where she attended the University of British of Columbia and completed a bachelors degree in Visual Arts and English Literature, eventually attaining her teaching certification in Secondary Art Education and English. Lily currently resides in Seattle as a freelance illustrator and stationery designer for Rivulet Paper Shop – a paper goods company she began on Etsy in 2014.

Jones’s creative process is supported by consistently feeling connected and involved in her art. She has always worked from home and has recently created her own home studio. One of her studio walls is dressed in collages of magazine clippings, quotes, printouts, and book pages of her favourite illustrators and books to help draw in creativity.

Honouring her own progress, she devotes every Sunday to venture into her personal projects, leaving the day marked off the calendar. Although she enjoys the comfort of creating at home, she appreciates finding inspiration in the city’s cafes where she listens to music and draws sketches of whatever comes to mind. Being free of distraction, she’s able to tune into her creative intuition and surrender to her craft. She also practices writing snippets of stories off the cuff, using stream of consciousness as a writing guide her in her work.

Growing up, Jones read books like The Chronicles of Narnia, The Lord of the Rings, A Series of Unfortunate Events, and all the classics of the golden age of illustration which inspired her and made her wonder about how fairy tales repeat similar elements and themes throughout history. Her whole philosophy is endowed to one of her inspirations, English author Neil Gaiman, who believes that

“by confronting some more melancholic ideas, books create a safe environment for children to tackle these challenging subjects so when they do experience these events later in life they feel more prepared.”

Although her content varies from her freelance illustration to paper goods, Jones likes to portray a dark and mythical quality to all of her work. Developing her art through her passion of storytelling and illustration, she aspires for her work to give her viewers a unique feeling in needing to stop and look deeper within.

Jones says that she wants to be remembered as “someone who dealt with these deep and interesting topics, but in such a way that was very approachable for children but that adults can enjoy too.”

The gloomy portraits have, in turn, helped her cope with her own darkness.

Artist Jacqueline Mak Takes On Consumerism, Body Politics, Humor, And Eroticism In Raunchy NSWF Collages

A collage artist’s browser history reveals a lot about the subjects that obsess them. For Jacqueline Mak, whose collages engage themes such as consumerism, objectification, and body politics, this translates to an NSFW treasure trove.

“I have a very sleazy retro archive,” she admits to Creators, “and when I’m not looking at porn or pin-up illustrations, thrift stores, Value Village, and Kijiji are my friends.”

Mak’s hyperactive imagination has gravitated towards this type of creative expression from a very young age.

“I drew nipples on Berenstain Bears when I was five,” she says. “In high school, the vice principal had to ask my art teacher to get rid of stenciled neon cocks I printed on the walls.” Mak says that the world of NSFW is “an area I feel most comfortable with because it’s cheeky, visceral, raw, unforgiving and it is what it is.”

The Electric State: Simon Stålenhag Comes A New Narrative Artbook About A Girl And Her Robot Traveling West In An Alternate 90s USA

“In late 1997, a runaway teenager and her yellow toy robot travel west through a strange USA, where the ruins of gigantic battle drones litter the countryside heaped together with the discarded trash of a high tech consumerist society in decline. As their car approaches the edge of the continent, the world outside the window seems to be unraveling ever faster as if somewhere beyond the horizon, the hollow core of civilization has finally caved in.”

Simon Stålenhag (previously featured) is the internationally acclaimed author, concept designer and artist behind Tales from the Loop and Things from the Flood. His highly imaginative images and stories depicting illusive sci-fi phenomena in mundane, hyper-realistic Scandinavian landscapes have made Stålenhag one of the most sought-after visual storytellers in the world.

Now, Stålenhag turns his unique vision to America in a new narrative artbook: The Electric State. With your support, these amazing images will turn into a top-quality narrative artbook, truly doing justice to the extreme attention to detail and quality of Stålenhag’s work.

The book will also add Stålenhag’s own texts to supplement the images, giving you an even deeper understanding of the universe of The Electric State.
