Available to buy on…

markers pens on bristol paper, (in my sketchbook of secrets) with photoshop lettering, because my lettering is pretty cool, but not very straight! i really must learn how to make photoshop brushes so i can make my own script!
so i’ve been meaning to draw Cleo for a while! she’s another of the characters that live in my head. smart, cool, deep thinker.. when she lifts her head up you’ll see the palest blue eyes.
i gave her Kim Hyun Joong’s surname, because i’m a bit of a fan, but she has an english given name because i haven’t got a clue how to name a korean!
i’ve definately figured out how to eat their food & watch their TV shows though! that’s how this character got herself invented..


schoolgirl, korean, genius

“Ria Gilham is a self taught artist with a remarkable eccentric realist style influenced by her medical training. Expressing her love of fantasy and tales of the imagination, her paintings appear as scenes from yet to be written legends.”
