Kris Tate creates vibrant, psychedelic, geometric illustrations based on subject matter ranging from indie culture figures to forest animals. Kristy Lynn creates luscious paintings and delicate drawings inspired by nature and dreams. The two artists connected via the artist site Society6, and after becoming friends and supporters of one another’s work, Tate asked Lynn if she would like to collaborate on a piece, to which the answer was naturally, yes.
Unsurprisingly, the artists decided to make a piece based on a wild creature from nature. The only question was: what member of the animal kingdom? After much discussion they decided on a wolf motif, and worked together to join their two worlds into a unique visual fusion of styles. The combining of Kris’s illustrative style and Kristy’s fine-lined drawings resulted in a contemporary look reflective of our digital culture and the artist’s serendipitous meeting online, while exuding a hand-drawn feeling that is warm and soft.

“[Kristy Lynn’s] work is super defined, textured with the cutest little illustrations that will make anyone want to live in her world.”
