Hi there, Merveilles! My name is Eden (They / She) and I'm an artist exploring complex feelings with simple shapes.

I'm excited to be a part of this instance! πŸ’ž

@zens I'm def a fan of Biblically Accurate Angelsβ„’ πŸ˜‚

@helveticablanc [to the tune of the teenage mutant ninja turtles theme] "Biblically Accurate Arch Angels"
"Michaelangelo leads, Gabriel does machines"
"When the evil nebron attacks, these smiting boys will cut him no slack"

@helveticablanc "Now available in a toy store everywhere. Collect them all!"

@helveticablanc Holy crap, these are great! Love the subtle texturing. Also, your use of color is πŸ‘Œ .
Welcome to Merveilles Eden :>.

@rek Aw, thanks so much! I've really been digging your 1-bit illustrations! The shapes are SO GOOD!

@whalefall Thank you! (your avatar got a hearty laugh out of me, btw)

@helveticablanc I really like the stuff that looks like text in the first one. Is it a full writing system or is it just there to look nice?

@montagsoup Thanks! It's part of a writing system I'm working on called Celestial Wormrōte. Mostly just a nice, artistic way to obfuscate English sounds.

@helveticablanc That's super cool! It's definitely one of the best looking writing systems I've seen. It manages to be geometric and complex without looking unrealistic, which I think is a really hard balance to strike.

@montagsoup Wow, thanks! I think the key for me was ligatures. Like, I just start combining consecutive sounds and it makes it look 200% better right away! πŸ˜‚

@helveticablanc aaaah! I already had your work bookmarked, I love it. welcome to merveilles. :)

@helveticablanc hello! welcome to merveilles Eden πŸ‘‹πŸ½πŸ˜Š your art is amazing!

@helveticablanc Hi Eden, it’s nice to meet you, and welcome to Merveilles! I was following your work on .art for a while. I’m glad you’re here.

@helveticablanc welcome eden! I love your work. Glad to have you here with us!

@helveticablanc woah. The pieces you attached look amazing! Kind of reminds me of the album cover for Mac Miller’s album Faces. I love that style! Excited to see what you bring to Mastodon!

@Osava Ooo, interesting comparison! I've never seen the cover, and it looks awesome!

@helveticablanc How nice to see you here! Small world. 😊 I think your art style is a great addition to this instance, FWIW.

@rezmason Thanks so much! It really IS a small world! πŸ˜‚πŸ’ž
