Lisa by GDBee Lisa by GDBee
Oh how I miss the 90's and early 2000's, when Lisa Frank folders and binders ran amok among the fellow classmates and I. Oh the rainbows! Oh the patterns! It was a euphoric time. Color scheme inspired by LF :)

I remember Lisa Frank!  She was my favorite!  

I adore how you use hair in your pictures, especially that great, big, poofy, black, afro hair.  It's an intrigal part of so many of your pictures that adds such a fun element of texture and color!

Ahhhh I love your art style! So amazing, I've been having a hard time figuring out which colours to use when shading darker skin tones and you have such great variety in your skin tones! This is a great example for me, so thank you for sharing your art with us ^^

As soon as I saw the colours and read Lisa I was like "...Frank?"
I was jealous of my cousins who had the subscription and got stuff sent to them by Lisa Frank.

I love this!! Her rainbow looks has a cotton candy texture that's really cool.
Her eyes and clothes are really pretty to look at! You captured the Lisa Frank style beautifully here. :D
The yellow freckles are fun unique touch! <3

Amazing piece. It looks like you can touch her hair and start finger painting!
On a bit of a light creepy note, a piece I've been working on reminded me of Lisa too and all I wanted to do was go get her coloring books and anything with her art on it lol.

Wonderful work GD, I hope to catch you streaming again soon :)

You got a knack for colors. Your palette reminds me of Lisa Frank (was thinking about her name before I read your description), but you take out the vomit inducing high saturation of her work and make it more subdued, yet still vibrant as a rainbow. That's incredible. Outside of the colors the hair just looks like cotton candy! Makes me wanna touch, it's so lovely. What throws me off though is your use of skin tone. It's glorious! I've heard that it's hard to combine dark skin and colored hair, but you shatter that! This is impeccably remarkable! Her face is even better though. The fact she has hearts in her eyes, literally, is awesome! I love the yellow freckles! Her expression marks her as an adorable minx! This is so stylishly beautiful. Fabulous piece! Thank you for making it.

Beautiful drawing, as always! mini hearts Not sure if you know, but Lisa Frank has been making a comeback! I've been following the Facebook page for a while now and last year they were posting all sorts of new product pics asking fans (adults in particular!) what patterns they preferred for new merchandise, etc. They've been posting a lot of artwork with messages on them lately too! Here's their Facebook page - www.facebook.com/LisaFrankOnli… I'm super excited! ;u;

I was so in love with everything Lisa Frank when I was in elementary school and to be honest, I wish there was still LF stuff available now. If there is, I sadly haven't seen anything >.<

In any case, your work is, as always, absolutely stunning and you definitely captured the essence of LF with it~
