Looking for last minute costume ideas? Look no further! The fantastical, magical work of Paloma Young is about to capture your heart and make you endlessly twirl in circles.

Ghazaleh Rastgar

As a child, Ghazaleh Rastgar would watch her aunt paint expressionist style landscapes. This supportive aunt would allow Rastgar to use her crayons and inspire the young artist to draw. Nowadays, she's been lovingly featured on Lenny Letter multiple times, and often contemplates the balance of spirituality and contemplative realms.

Luisa Rivera

Paper Darts is a longtime fan of Luisa Rivera. Originally from Chile, Rivera now lives and works in London. But before living in London, she lived in Minneapolis, the original nesting place for Paper Darts. We have ties to her that we never want to sever, but mostly because she's an incredibly artist and human. Rivera uses water-based paints, such as acrylic, pencil, watercolor, and gouache, to create quick thumbnail sketches. Both the female figure and nature are at the heart of her work. After finding her favorite direction, Rivera goes large-scale, fiercely relying on her intuition and gut to compose each piece. 

Christopher Williams

California native Christopher Williams is currently earning his BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute, a promise he made to his father, who passed away two years ago. His overwhelming sense of chromatics and culture have become the foundation to his painting practice. With a combination of oils, watercolor, and graphite, Williams creates bold portraits in which each of the subjects is emboldened with a fierce strength. 

Dominic Beyeler

Dominic Beyeler's prolific style can be seen in his daily sketches. Balancing bold colors and swift lines, Beyeler captures a fierce vulnerability within every face. Residing in Switzerland, Beyeler remembers the first time he earned money for his artwork, which secured his interest in being a professional artist: the splatter, the ink, our hearts. 

C. M. Kosemen

Originally from Turkey, Kosemen is a creative and inventive explorer. This talented artist blends elements of evolution, mythology, biology, natural history, and the EXTRAORDINARY. Kosemen's work is not only beautiful, but informative. Each drawing is a true interpretation of what the creatures may have looked like, where they lived, and how big they were. 

Stef Cook

Sardinian-born artist Stef Cook created the series fine profiles to document the male students she studies with at Columbus College of Art & Design. She originally sought out to replicate a photograph through watercolor as an exercise in control and consistency. Working from photographs, Cook composed each painting to mimic the next with the goal of creating a uniform arrangement. The portraits are best paired with her series wash profiles, which alternatively relies on the models' silhouette and color to translate their identities. As both series of profiles melt back and forth from realistic into abstract watercolor paintings, the study of the men as characters becomes completely captivating.
