Today is the birthday of Linu Hamid a great inspiration to me and much of what i am. She is the director of The Uncanny Collector, a blog based on her great artwork that has come to be. She isn’t just an ordinary artist. She with her blog has decided to show the world what it is like to be inside the mind of a graphic illustrator. So what does this mean you say? Well we have all seen great artwork, but never how the art of one develops and becomes what i can only perceive as “amazing”.
She will of course be reading this, thinking, “My work isn’t amazing!”. But that just proves that she can be wrong too (oh yeah). Since i have known her, her work and art has always been of the highest quality and now people of the world, you too can see it for all that it is, don’t expect all of it to be there, after all, it’s development and to see all the greatest, you must wait and read and watch closely, as i most definitely do. After all it was her who inspired me to do the things you see on my blog, if anything, i owe her every piece of thanks i am.
There was a time when she would sit there working and drawing and not a single soul would see it, because it would be hidden under her arms at all times, like a masters next greatest masterpiece. She has a very unique style that can be seen as sometimes eerie, cute, simplistic, emotional and often with a great deal of fantasy. I am here to say, please take a look, admire, like, comment and drool.
It’s now 2 am and i end this with a great thank you to Linu for all that she has helped me with and a great bow to the work i have seen her do. Happy Birthday!
