marci washington.



Marci Washington is one of my artist loves. Equal parts portrait and creepy, she's one of those artists that just makes my skin crawl in the best way.



A native Californian now living in Oakland, Marci has a knack for what seems to hold a sense of the supernatural. Her old houses are spectacular, and I so badly want one for my bathroom wall. After all, nothing makes you pee like a haunted mansion!



Right now, Marci's working on what I think could potentially be the COOLEST project in a LONG time:

"Currently I am interested in building a fictional narrative with connections to history as well as to the present. It's like I'm illustrating a novel that doesn't exist. If it did, it would probably be a lot like Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre, or Bleak House- novels which function as social commentary as well as beautiful romantic epics."



So lovely!

These are gorgeous! I love the idea of illustrating for a nonexistent novel. Thanks for introducing me to her work!

welcome.

because beauty lies in the details of design. in the pencil shavings, in the blueberry waffles. the vintage dress, framed portrait, old postcard.

design is inevitable. celebrated. design for mankind.
