Illustrator Draws Uber-Realistic Junk

New York City-based illustrator, Bella McGoldrick, has been drawing everyday items for about five months now. In her work, she uses colored pencils and markers and works on a large scale.

“I start on one corner, at times with marker as a base, then fine tuning with colored pencils layer upon layer for 70 hours or so to complete the piece as what I like to think of as ‘high res’!” McGoldrick told Fubiz. “The scrunching and manipulating of the subject before I draw it, influences this result also; the imperfections of the subject lead to the highly realistic drawing to fit a little more modestly incompletion.”

According to McGoldrick, she hopes to “reflect a feeling of nostalgia and brashness by sinking beauty into the almost always overlooked and forgotten items we all live around.”

She shares her work on her Instagram account where she has attracted over 5.8k followers. Scroll down to check out some of her work.
