Painted Ladies are a Playful Nod to Fashion, Architecture, and Food

Julianna Brion

I first saw Julianna Brion’s painted ladies on  Tum­blr a few weeks ago, and since then I’ve been wait­ing for more of them to appear. The Baltimore-based illus­tra­tor uses gouache to paint the tall, styl­ized women. Their fash­ions are a play­ful nod to archi­tec­ture and food.

These pieces are a way for Julianna to unwind after fin­ish­ing com­mis­sioned illus­tra­tions, and she often paints in repur­posed books. Look closely and you might see some of their text showing!

I’m hop­ing Julianna will con­tinue to post more pieces like these. Fol­low her on Insta­gram to see more.

I’ve fea­tured the work of Julianna Brion on Brown Paper Bag before, and men­tioned her last week because she’s apart of my newest exhi­bi­tion for my online illus­tra­tion gallery, eyra. Julianna is included in the exhi­bi­tion Don’t Call Me Hon­ney, a show about the city of Bal­ti­more.

Julianna is local to me, a trans­plant to Bal­ti­more by way of Con­necti­cut. It’s inter­est­ing to see her take on the city, in a series that she’s titled Bal­ti­more Hodge­podge 1–4. A mish­mash it is! She cap­tures the banal­ity of row homes, high­light­ing them with bright accents. Roof decks were new to me when I first moved to Bal­ti­more, so I enjoy that she makes ref­er­ence to that. 

You can own the orig­i­nals of this work and prints as well! Take a peek in the eyra shop.

eyra illustration gallery // new exhibition — Don’t Call Me Honney

eyra_email

I was silent yes­ter­day — my apolo­gies. It’s because I was busy putting the fin­ish­ing touches on eyra illus­tra­tion gallery’s newest show, Don’t Call Me Hon­ney. The exhi­bi­tion cen­ters around my home, Bal­ti­more. All of the par­tic­i­pat­ing illus­tra­tors are liv­ing and mak­ing work in the city! I also wrote about Don’t Call Me Hon­ney, think­ing about it in terms of how we iden­tify our­selves and how we become inspired.

The show is com­pletely online, so view it here!

Illus­tra­tors fea­tured within the show are Andrew Liang, Cor­nel Rubino, Christo­pher Adams, Janna Mor­ton, Julianna Brion, and Jun Cen

I don’t want to spoil the sur­prise of the show, but below are some works included in the exhi­bi­tion. I’m happy with how it turned out, and I hope you like it, too!
