That is how to best describe Jowy Maasdamme, the illustrator behind ISEEJANEMARY.
With the use of simple raw materials such as ink and pencil she illustrates her visions. In elegant but strong lines she enraptures a world that is both feminine and dark. She emphasizes transformation, fragility, and fantasy in a susceptible and delicate way.
Jowy Maasdamme on her illustrations and on how fashion translates in her work:
I get inspired by courage, fairytales, myths, nightmares, Disney, outcasts, punks, sex, vulnerability, nature, humanity, just by life. My drawings are mostly black and white, to me that feels natural, simple like night and day.
I mostly draw people; women. I get obsessed with faces, postures, eyes and my aesthetic is highly influenced by fashion.
