There's something peculiarly pleasing about Molly Mendoza's art. Her sketchbook is such a wild ride, and I'm fascinated by how she's created meaning and depth with extreme limitation of color. Aside from her sketches, I also love the amazing stuff she's been posting recently on her tumblr and Instagram.
Molly grew up in Romeoville, Illinois and was captivated by the diversity of people and encounters that she has experienced in her twelve years of living there. Now, she uses those recollections to create things with her own unique and personal touch. Although she's quite young, the Portland-based artist has already produced an endless amount of hand-drawn and digital illustrations.
A recipient of a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Pacific Northwest College of Art, Molly has exhibited her work in various galleries. She has also been commissioned to create pieces for clients including Adobe, Nautilus, The New York Times, The Scientist, and Uncovered Classics.
Thanks, Guy McKinley for the tip.
