Shantell Martin (27) an illustrator originally from London, is a rare international talent in Tokyo. “Drawing for me is a line that flows between the past and the future without touching the sides.” “When I draw I start with one regular line, then I simply follow it until it’s finished.”
Her light and quirky line drawings are intriguing and, the influences of two cultures is clearly evident in her work.
A new fashion label “Encadreurs” meaning “framers” in French, with the idea to collaborate with a different artist every season took Shantell’s illustrations and used fashion as a tool for framing it. The result is an inspiring combination (via PingMag).
