Symbolism in Stippling White Drawings

Beautifully constructed stippling drawings.

Anindita Islam has this to say about herself: "Graphic designer by day, artist by night."

Amazing fantasy filled drawings that contain so much meaning in them. They use the stippling technique, that consists of amassing little ink dots to create an image.

This style is great when it comes to drawing shadows and a way of softening the edges of any form. If you look at the quantity of detailing and ink that is applied to each drawing, you start getting an idea of the amount of work that goes into them.

The images on the drawing pad are the best ones to appreciate scale and complexity.

As I said in the title, these illustrations are full of symbolism. Potentially different interpretations by different viewers. The titles below are the thoughts I get, when looking at and immersing my mind in these nocturnal worlds.
