#Art of Fantasy 26: Amanda Sartor

the-laidly-worm-amsartorA.M.Sartor is a freelance illustrator from Seattle, WA. Although traditionally trained as a children’s book illustrator, she has several game credits on her resumé. According to Sartor, her style is ‘greatly influenced by works from the Golden Age of Illustration, Ukiyo-e, and contemporary pop surrealism.’ She uses a mix of traditional and digital media and have a decade’s worth of experience in the entertainment and publishing industry.

I like her style because it’s just different. Soft with muted colors in a style that reminds me of earlier illustrators from the previous century.

Below are a few samples. If you click on any image it will take to the artist’s site.

Sartor also illustrates book covers and I have to say, I wouldn’t mind commissioning her for a project in the near future. In fact, I’m considering changing the cover for Bullies and Soggy Soup Bones and I’m thinking her style wouldn’t be a bad fit for the story. If you want to know more about Sartor and her art, you can visit her website or follow her on Twitter here.

Now for something completely different. If I were you, I’d watch this blog for an announcement in a day or so.

Enjoy!

  1. I really like her. I like that sense of previous years, as you mentioned, and her nearly monochrome palette.
    And yes, I think her style would match your story nicely 🙂
