Artist Spotlight: M. Steffens
M. Steffens, who goes by t-funster on Tumblr, is an incredibly talented Brazilian designer-illustrator, and a lovely person to boot. Her work covers original material as well as a wide range of fan subjects, making her one of my favorite fan artists working right now. The majority of what’s available on her society6 include Teen Wolf, Les Misérables and A Song of Ice and Fire, showing a breadth of interests, and each work shows a refined sense of style as well as the skill and talent to go with it. A majority of her work, including her A Song of Ice and Fire as Brazilian Cordel Literature booklets series, is inspired by woodblock and lithograph print methods with a heavy emphasis on blocked colors, thick yet highly focused lines, and the gritty quality of ink not quite getting into every crevice of the original matrix. I’m a big fan of her color palette and her ink work, and she has shown not only high technical skill but historical know-how to keep her more period-based works upright.
