artist of the day goes to…

Audrey Kawasaki. Her art is exquisite and unique, a mixture of Art Nouveau (Japanese wood work) and traditional manga. She paints on wood panels, creating images of seduction, soft eroticism; mainly of women figures. Her work has appeared in Juxtapoz, one of my ultimate art-mag favorites, as well as across the country.

Here is her person website:
and on the great CG Unit blog (an awesome art resource):

here she is working in her studio ^^. It makes me want to pick up my paints and get at it.
I recommend you view her entire gallery. Her work can be innocent, naughty, but always elegant and full of talent.
