Art and Storytelling, the beautiful work of Esther McManus

esther1 esther2 esther3 Screen Shot 2014-03-07 at 13.02.36I recently bought a stunning print by Esther McManus, Seance along with her Witches Hat zine. Esther describes herself as a printmaker who draws comics. She is inspired by dreamscapes and there is an element of storytelling throughout her work. What I particularly love is that it reminds me a little of european folklore – such as the ones written down by the Grimm brothers (before the Disney treatment!). She produces handprinted zines, comics and silkscreen prints – on her own, as well as with Adam Ferner as Æ FolkloreTo see more of her wonderful work visit her site or Etsy shop.
