Artist Spotlight: Marianne Gilliand

Yesterday I posted about a fantastic new shop by Marianne Gilliand, the Girly Girls Club, in which she honored me with one of her anime creations based on my likeness. Today, I want to take a moment to let you know more about this wonderfully talented person.

From lighthearted and sugary sweet to dark, looming and melancholy and everything in between, digital artist, Marianne Gilliand covers the spectrum in her wonderful collection of works.

Marianne is a very talented and diversified digital artist specializing in 3D CGI Graphics. Her primary focus is as a gothic artist where she uses a number of 3D software applications to create her amazing works. Her 3D CGI art also features a variety of styles and genres including fantasy, dark, horror, fashion and on occasion, landscape.



You can find this awesome work on a variety of products including art posters, postcards, greeting cards, mousepads, magnets, stickers, postage, mugs, t-shirts and so much more at her Dark Dreams Gothic Artwork shop. Below is a small sampling of her Gothic Art Posters.

What's left after everyone has ripped apart your soul, something less than complete, something metallic and hollow almost machine.

In addition to her remarkable talents as a 3D CGI artisit, Marianne is also talented in 2D graphics. Her 2D styles also vary in genre and include cartoon, kawaii, chibi and anime to name a few. It seems that Marianne can pick up on just about any style she sets out to. Marianne is a completely self-taught artist and it takes a real talent to master the various forms of digital artwork that Marianne creates. Below is a fun sampling of some of Marianne's other creations available in her shops on a variety of products including t-shirts, bags, greeting cards, stickers postage, keds shoes, mugs, magnets, keychains and more.

This is a great showcase of Marianne - I have seen several of her stores but not all of her variety of work and it's impressive.

It's always nice to know I'm not the only artist with "multiple creativity disorder" (like it says on my Twitter profile, lol).

And that little pink haired cartoon is you? Love it, you're just adorable with pink hair!
