Karen IngramFriday, April 10, 2009
I am just so floored and inspired to see Karen Ingram's work. There is so much honesty is the 'hand drawn' which I find myself attracted to hugely. Karen is a celebrity in the art/web world & her fascination with all things web began with "a simple desire to make her drawings move". She's not looked back ever since & from curating to judging at the AIGA and the Webby's she's done it all. For me starting to use the computer for my art meant that I didn't really sketch for many many years (that's changing now-ye!) but Karen has just sketched and drawn & that is what really marks her work apart. I can see the pencil strokes, the sinews of each hand drawn line in each of her work. Check this link to see some vintage Karen Ingram. It will give you a real feel of her work. Do read an interview of hers in the 'Flash Goddess' here. It gives a great insight into the person she is.
