Natalie Hall loves lines. But its not your typical line. Somehow she’s bred an unholy hybrid of water and smoke, capturing it within a pen she can work with. And man is it working for her. For Natalie, this mysterious organic compound pours out with such ferocity that it takes on the wild forms of the beasts caught in the collective conscience of all creatives, subject only to the bending will of their creator and restrained only by the shapes they are placed in. The first time I saw Natalie’s work I was afraid to breathe, fearing that the slightest puff would send the mesmerizing swirls away in the same way a stray breeze whisks away the warmth from your breath on a cold day. Fortunately, the wind did not betray me and I was allowed to savor the smoke a little longer. Since that first encounter I’ve had the privilege of following the trail of smoke to an onslaught of visual prowess and artistry. Though I still find it hard to breathe when I see her work, it’s no longer out of fear of ruining creation, but out of reverence, awe and recognition for what she is; a master draftswomen.
I highly urge you all to check out more of her work and follow her on:
