artist Julie Morstad

I first learned of Julie’s work when I picked up a copy of The Family Fang. She drew the intriguing  cover illustration and I wanted to see more of her work. I love the mystery and elegance in her illustrations  – a group of women standing on a man’s head, women’s heads float up from a vent, people’s heads grow in the place of flowers. She uses a lot of symbolism – emotions are shown through objects more than the facial expressions of the characters. Check out more of her work here:
