【インスタグラム】息を呑むほど精細で美しい、動物を描写したイラストと大自然の絶景との融合

英国出身のイラストレーターでビジュアルアーティストのfayehallidayartさんのインスタグラムが、海外で話題になっています。精細な紋様で描かれた動物たちは息を呑むほど美しく、さらにその絵を細かく切り抜いて、大自然の絶景と融合させた写真を公開しています。

オフィシャルサイトでは、fayehallidayartさんのイラストがプリントされたiPhoneケースやステッカー、Tシャツなどを販売中のようです。これは欲しい。

If I ask and I really mean it, when the sun goes down at the end of the day, it takes all of my worries from the day along with it. As it disappears below the horizon, I imagine them burning away, flickering into nothing in amongst all of its light while I sleep, before coming up at sunrise with the promise of a brand new day 🌅 Edit: Thank you for all of the kind words and support. After looking at the comments I have to note this wasn't physically cut out, the photo has been edited to include the background. The detail was too intense to cut it out and still create the image the way I imagined it. I hope this doesn't ruin the experience for you. A lot of heart, thought and effort was still put into making this happen ❤

After years and years of delving into the spectrum of greys and 3D dance from black to white, here I am at 25 years old with little to no experience with colour. So I've gone back to square one, back to being a student, back to being an amateur and decided to start what I know will be a very long journey. After practicing one thing so avidly for so long, I know the amount of work I have ahead of me and it's terrifying. I observe my mind and it wants to rush. It looks for the fastest way of getting from A to B, from amateur to pro. Flooding me with questions like "Where. Do. I. Start?!" I think back to one of Lao Tzu's quotes I have hanging back in my studio in England, "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step". I breath, release and relax as I allow another one of his well-known messages to come through, "Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished". Which begs the question, why is this something I'd want to rush anyway? And in that moment I open my eyes to what will be a great love affair with colour. A great, great love affair I want to savour every moment of, with each of the different stages of our relationship having their own gorgeous aspects to enjoy. From the excitement and mystery of our first date right the way through to the deepest depths of knowing and loving in our old age. So in these backdrop pieces, you see me enjoying our first stages. I'm making my move. Using a wingman to make an introduction and bridge the gap between my work and Colour's. The original creative expression, the original source of colour inspiration… Nature, showing me how it's done. Until the time comes to pick up a paintbrush and take things to the next level. But until then, I'm in no rush :-) Thank you for sharing this journey with me… P.S. Apologies for my absence, I've been taking some time out from technology. I've missed you! And the same applies to any journey you might be too scared to start too… Embracing all of the stages… Including the inevitable feelings of fear in our first steps.

If you were granted one whole day as an adult when you were a kid, able to do whatever you wanted, whenever you wanted, what would you have done with it? 🌺 I’ve just spent the day in the forest climbing trees and visiting my local garden centre, two things I used to love doing as a kid. The garden centre used to have this huge pirate ship for us to play in while the adults had lunch, with all sorts of holes, ladders and slides scattered across the deck. I remember climbing up to the lookout and feeling like I was on top of the world, big and brave for making it all the way to the top. I’m sure I’d look at it now and realise how tiny it was haha, but back then that thing may as well have been a real life pirate ship. All I wanted was to be grown up and now I miss the magic of being a child. I haven’t figured out the answer to my own question yet, but I do know I’d love to dedicate a day to doing whatever it is when I do
