Irene and Jonas Hastings

Digital Illustration - resulting in, Fine Art Digital Ink Jet Prints

Location @ AOS:

Arlington Town Hall (730 Mass Ave)

We are Irene and Jonas a married artist couple with two teenagers. We've been doing markets and festivals around Massachusetts and Rhode Island for about 10 years. We create digital illustrations that we make limited edition fine art inkjet prints of. We draw first by hand and then scan it into the computer and finish the work digitally using graphic software Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop. We also create work by drawing in Procreate with the Apple Pencil. We print our work as limited edition inkjet prints or sometimes silkscreens.
My work explores an intrigue with the beauty and complexity of our natural world. I relate my curiosity of human experience/emotion through nature. I spend time in nature, hiking, gathering inspiration. I sketch and draw and paint before creating an ink drawing which I then bring into the digital realm where the work is refined, colored, and finalized in a flat graphic aesthetic.
Jonas's work is expressive with a focus on line, texture and observable evidence of the human hand. He employs paint brushes, tooth brushes, and brayers to create naturalistic textures to embed digitally in his drawings. The subjects vary from nature and human nature, and at times take an imaginative approach. We've also started finishing our own frames for our Artwork.
Jonas and I have separate instagram accounts so be sure to check them both out.
