Check out the whimsical, technicolored world of self-taught illustrator Geneva Benton. North Carolina-based Benton specializes in digital portraits and character art done in her signature brightly colored style. She is a full-time artist who freelances and accepts commissioned projects. On Tumblr she talks a little more about her artistic inspirations: “I love Benjamin Zhang Bin’s emotion in his work and color schemes, as well as Xavier Houssin’s anatomy and dynamics. There’s a myriad of artist whose work I just look at and cry and want to draw like, but these two are the biggest. I’d say pure jealousy of these greater artists’ abilities drives me to try to get better, ha.”
