Curator’s Monday 143

Angela Rizza | on Tumblr (USA)

Angela is a freelance illustrator currently living and working in New York. She graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology in 2011 with a BFA in Illustration. Since then she has been featured in a number of magazines and shows. Her work is a combination of traditional and digital media which is reminiscent of a classical storybook illustration. Besides artwork, Angela enjoys traveling, birding and photography. She is open to comments, commissions, or questions and is currently available for illustration jobs of any kinds and is looking for an art rep. Thanks sosuperawesome for this Curator’s Monday sharing.

Big Huge List of Some Amazing Women Artists!



I have been wanting to assemble a huge post of some of the amazing women artists out there, because it seems like too often they get overlooked when it comes to being honored and recognized. This year, I was incredibly honored to be nominated for a Hugo award in the Best Professional Artist category, but I was a little shocked to find out there hadn’t been another woman nominated in that category since Rowena Morrill in 1986. That’s more than a little ridiculous, considering there are so many women artists out there, they are all amazing, and they all need more visibility and recognition. I encourage you to browse through and visit their websites, and please reblog and add more artists to the list! I know this is NOWHERE near comprehensive and that are tons more artists out there.

This list mostly covers mostly professional illustrators and scifi/fantasy artists. I know I’m missing out on a ton of talented people in comics, animation, fine art, and people who do primarily fan work, but I don’t know quite as much about those areas so they aren’t as well represented here; my apologies. 

(The tags got cut off; I guess there’s a limit now? As such I wasn’t able to tag every single artist included.)

EDIT: Added more artists! 

Click the “read more” to check out the art!  Warning: This list is HUGE, and very image intensive!

Our first featured Illustrator is Angela Rizza.

First Instigatorzine Appeareance: IZ15

If you haven’t seen Angela Rizza’s work, it must be because you haven’t been looking. Maybe you need glasses or something. Her work is even on tote bags! If there’s one thing I can say about Angela’s work, it’s that it’s dedicated. Meticulous. Looking through her portfolio, you can tell she weighs hours and hours on each piece. Not that all the illustrators we’re posting this week don’t put time into their work, but with Angela, it’s obvious. You’d be a little nuts to find another like her, yo. 

Pay Attention:


I finished just in time for Halloween! The raven will be available next month over at Tou.B Bags!
