Irana Douer

The first time I saw Irana Douer's work was on the cover The Walrus – back in the day when they were inspiring. It was a delicate illustration of magenta hair waves burying a woman's face. Very simple. Very bold. Seeing it makes me want to break out and sing the theme song to Hair, the musical. I nearly forgot about Irana until I was recently reunited with her work on Flickr. With a little digging I also discovered she is the editor of a very cool online art magazine called Ruby. Check it out. There's loads of inspiration in one neat little post. Ta da!

THE NORTH WIND BLEW SOUTH is an acceptional drawing showing the full coverage of the hair. Mary

Very cool. I like the last one with the purple braids.
