Simply stated, Now On View celebrates and showcases the artists of Society6 and their work. Get to know them—and then get lost in their gallery.
Who are you and what do you do? My name is Clara and I’m a Spanish freelance illustrator. I spend most of my time drawing clusters of weird faces and bodies.
Current city: Bilbao
How did you make these? I make most of my drawings by using traditional techniques. At first, I usually do a pencil sketch and shortly after, I color it with watercolors or acrylic. Then I scan and retouch it on Photoshop. Sometimes, I work digitally solely, but the truth is I much more enjoy drawing the other way, directly on the paper.
Why did you make these? I’ve always felt inspired by people, identity and social relationships; loneliness, fantasy and sci-fi. The odd and the “normal.” I draw in order to express myself, as a way to take conversations I hold with myself and look at them from another perspective.
What do people typically say about your work? I get quite diverse feedback. Each person reads my art differently and I like that very much. However, there are many coincidental concepts like “orderly chaos,” “disturbing,” “grim”… Sometimes I don’t agree with some of these definitions but I find it interesting how my art can inspire such different feelings in everyone.
