Here we have the awesome Work In Progress of The Sun by Leilani Joy being developed for 78 Tarot Astral. This card is now FINISHED and will be shown in its completion during our 78 Tarot Astral Kickstarter April 11 – May 4th – this is just a teaser!
A native of Northern California, Leilani Joy grew up illustrating the world around her. In 2009, she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the Academy of Art University, San Francisco where she majored in traditional illustration. Leilani’s work has since been featured in numerous art events and gallery shows including Swoon Gallery, Los Angeles, and Disney’s Wonderground Gallery in Anaheim, CA. Heavily influenced by Japanese animation, fashion illustration, and the occult, her work blends her passions in unique ways. Her emotive long-limbed ladies are brought to life using vivid color, graphic shapes and a variety of materials including acrylic, watercolor, ink and 3D collage. Currently living, creating, and blogging in San Francisco, CA, Leilani’s originals, prints, and products are now sought after worldwide. Leilani’s love of the creative process and desire to educate young artists has inspired her to launch her own channel on YouTube entitled, Art NuVogue where she demonstrates her process and explores new materials and techniques.
