Shannon May


I was scrolling through my little self-accumulated library of art and illustration when I came across the pieces above, and didn't know who had created them. Taken from one of my popular haunts, Design*Sponge, I managed to track down the artist and her website.

Her name is Shannon May, and although the Music for Airports piece has remained unpublished, it's one of my favourites, along with the lovely pastel Rural Water piece and now her geometric experiments too. I need to express how much I really like the pieces and in fact, the composition of the above two together. In a way, it seems very aspirational - to jump into the air with technicolour friends and to fly away on a beam of radio waves.

Shannon also has a blog and an etsy store with many more geometric experiments. Take a peek! I'm keeping her under my "Art" tab in case I can one day buy a print, and also, I hope she doesn't mind that I'm using her art for my Twitter background!
