Portfolio – Diggy Smerdon

July 20, 2009 | Words By: Angela

seabreak-by-diggy-smerdonDiggy Smerdon – an unusual name for an unusual girl.

In her own words: “With a dirty graphic blend and expressive raw lines, illustrator Diggy Smerdon brings to life the themed characters and creations of dream and sub-conscious. With this distinct style, she explores unconventional subject matters with weird but wonderful forms. Her quirky creations, unique faces and obsession with hands adds a mystery to her work. She conveys the idea of identity and the elements that form identity – including our sub-conscious, instinct and our soul – through her work.”
