Episode 44.2: MondoCon Artist Interview - with Artist and Illustrator Duo Teagan White & Erica Williams
Dead things! This episode, Andrew and Luke talk with Teagan White and Erica Williams about everything from their love of nature and how that influences their style, to their showing at MondoCon.
Teagan White is a freelance illustrator specializing in intricate drawings of flora and fauna, playful watercolors of animal characters, and illustrated typography. She is very interested in nature's subtle, gentle reciprocity and wild, tragic discord, and combines this inspiration with nostalgic colors, decorative arrangements of organic forms, and meticulous detail. Her clients have included Target, Papyrus, American Greetings, Penguin Random House, Simon & Schuster, Disney Hyperion, Nike, Honda, Ford, Wired Magazine, and the Washington Post, with projects ranging from advertising and editorial to children's books, greeting cards, and textiles.
She enjoys nature and seeing the world around me, smelling leaves, laying in grass, and listening to the wind. In addition to my kitty friends at home I make serious attempts at befriending wild animals I meet, although it makes her very sad it doesn’t always work out. In addition to loving nature and animals, she is also heavily influenced by history, fiber arts, tattoo culture, folklore, fables, and mythology.
