Illustration & Tattoo

Too many things to do and not enough time to do them. I wish people would just buy my underpaintings lol I get very attached to the way they look in sepia.

avalensch said: Hi Amanda! I'm currently an Illustration major at PNCA and just wanted to let you know that your work is crazy inspiring to me. I really relate to your themes and process, and seeing your icons of the west makes me feel a little more at home. Thanks for sharing your work! I can't wait to see where your incredible talent takes you!

Aww! Thank you Anna! This is one of the sweetest messages I’ve gotten in my ask box in quite a while! I’m glad I can have a bit of a positive influence on a fellow soldier of Illustration! I also wish you the best of luck in your studies at PNCA :3

A preliminary sketch for a wedding present I gave to Steve and Alex last weekend. 
"In a Field of Orchids" 6.5"x10" Digital. Amanda Zito. 2014Orchids have many associations with symbolic values. It’s the city flower of Shaoxing, China, and has been used in traditional medicine since 2800 BC. In Greek Mythology, Orchis was the son of a nymph and a satyr. During a celebratory feast for Bacchus, Orchis committed the sacrilege of attempting to rape a priestess, resulting in his being torn apart by wild beasts, then metamorphosing into a slender and modest plant. Prints Coming Soon!
