Camilla Chew Masks

These incredible mixed-media masks are the creations of Camille Chew, a free-lance illustrator originally from Ithaca, NY but is currently based in Providence, RI.  She graduated from Alfred University where her focus was on printmaking.  Her work explores themes of mythology, fantasy, and the occult. On an interview with Light Grey Art Lab she says this about her creative process:

“Whatever I’m making, I always start by deciding on a color palette.  For digital illustration, I usually don’t do much sketching, maybe jus a quick stick figure to map out a character’s pose.  All the basic shapes are blocked in and then comes the fun part-drawing in all the patterns and details.  I keep a library of textures and patterns that always adding to.  It’s full of digitally made patterns, scanned in watercolor washes and hand-drawn patterns, as well as brushes that can be used like stamps.”
