Illusion Magazine - Issue 29 Spring 2015

Welcome to the spring issue!

If you are a seasoned painter then no doubt you are after some fresh ideas. Well what we’ve got for you in this issue will blow you away. In fact, this is possibly the quirkiest edition of Illusion that you will have ever seen. And if you’ve just got started in this industry then you’ll be needing straightforward, achievable designs that look good when you give them a try. Well, this issue has got plenty of those too.

Take a look at:

·       Jennifer Parker. We’ve been so excited about Jennifer’s new series for Illusion and finally here it is! Her Little People designs will get your head buzzing with ideas and possibilities. She shows you the options and then it’s up to you what original art you create.

·       Nadja Hluchovsky. Did Nadja’s gnome on our cover catch your eye? Just wait until you see her artwork inside. We think Nadja probably sees the human form differently from most people as she gets her models to pose in positions that transform them into animals and insects. From caterpillars and snails to starfish and lions – you will be inspired by Nadja’s art.

·       Susanne Daoud. What impresses us here at Illusion is Susanne’s incredible attention to detail. And she takes the concept of animating your art to a whole new level as she skilfully matches body shapes and dog breeds in her painting. You will have never seen anything like this Australian’s talent and even her body painting business has an original twist.  

·       Cesia Landaverde. This self-taught artist tailors her paintings to her own features – her beautiful big eyes. This has led to her fabulous cartoon-style characters which are full of expression and personality. Once you’ve seen them you’ll be wanting to have a go yourself.

This issue is packed with all of your favourite things, the gallery pages where we feature the designs of our readers, 14 step-by-step designs, news of some great new products on the market. Technical articles where you can learn some great new techniques and ideas from our regular artists Sophia Leadill Taylor and Jennifer Parker.

Illusion Magazine - Issue 28 Winter 2014

Here at Illusion HQ we often talk about being the best artist that you can be and in this issue we really get to show you exactly what that means.

We are delighted to be able to share with you an interview with none other than Jocelyn Casdorph who has been a pioneer in the industry for over 15 years. Then there are the rising stars of the future such as Nikki Shelley – her art spread like wild fire when she got up the courage to share it on social media.

Our feature on the new TV series Skin Wars shows just how mainstream face and body painting is becoming. And the industry is constantly looking for new styles of painting and new products that will push artists to expand their skills further – and of course we’ve got plenty of original ideas and glittering goodies that will help you do just that.

Take a look at:

Jocelyn Casdorph. This artist is face and body painting royalty. She started her pioneering career at none other than Enjoy Your Face with Nick and Brian Wolfe, Jay Bautista and Chris Davis before anyone even knew who they were. Her interview is packed full of ideas of how to succeed in the industry.

Olga Gila. Our impressive cover artist creates the whole package. Not only does she paint colourful and precise designs, she also makes complex headdresses, necklaces and corsets to complement them. The combination of make-up and decoration makes for some truly stunning images.  

Nikki Shelley. Be prepared to be scared! Nikki’s designs are truly gruesome and remarkably realistic. People often can’t believe that her designs are simply paint and not made with prosthetics. 

Angela Youngs. With her actor husband, Angela runs a successful theatre company, so it’s no surprise that her designs are full of drama. The story behind her artwork is both fascinating and emotional.

Then you’ll be chuckling at Suzanne Mykolojenko’s take on painting jams, blown away by 15-year-old Rachel Madison’s talent and itching to pick up a bucket and have a go at clay modelling after you’ve seen Syl Verberk’s tutorial. 

And that’s before you’ve even got to all the regular contributions. From Sophia Leadhill Taylor’s technical tips on curls, swirls and teardrops to Craig Tracy’s backstage expose of Skin Wars – there’s plenty to brighten up your winter. This issue feels like all our Christmas presents wrapped up in one glossy colourful parcel!
