Jeannie Lynn Paske has a unique, contrastive style. There is a soothing, melancholic side to her drawings, and then there is the intense and subtly dark side of them. An Obsolete World best describes her illustrations of strange creatures facing extinction. The creatures are portrayed observing their surroundings. Paske’s work is easily evocative of loneliness and depth.
According to her blog, “There is a world tucked away behind this one. An old world made up of endless fields,distant hills and timeworn cliffs. A place where the sun is always setting. A land in which extinct slow-moving monsters and elegant gentle-faced creatures of all shapes and sizes reside. Delicately balancing their hope with despair. Reminiscent of long departed dreams and uncollected thoughts. Time stands still here, so as to let the residents gaze in solitude upon the vast, richly textured skies. Forever in search of a place to better sit and watch their world pass them by.”
