Artist Spotlight: Melissa Cooke

Cooke1

Wonderful series of photorealistic drawings by Minneapolis, Minnesota-based artist Melissa Cooke. Based on photographs Cooke took of herself, the closely cropped images are an experiment in traditional portraiture and personal reflections on feeling overwhelmed in a new place. More images from Plunge below.
