There’s something really amazing about the work of Junyi Wu, a Los Angeles based artist who’s drawings totally captured my attention. When I look at her work, and this is going to sound cheesy, it reminds me of a rose. It’s obviously beautiful and extremely well done, but it’s also got this dark, sort of deadly side that gives it some grit. I think that fusion of both beauty with darkness is really important, for me personally it makes me do a double take when I look at her pieces. Her work looks like it’s mostly colored pencil, though I know some of the pieces were done digtally.

If you find her work intriguing, I’d suggest browsing her online portfolio as well as her personal blog, which has some nice details about her work and passions.
