Thato Ashley RABALAO

I’m an aspiring Graphic Designer, Illustrator and 3D artist, and I go by my artist name ‘Ashleytoolovely Creations.’

 The kind of art I enjoy creating is digital illustrations as well as 3D models and turning both into animations. My 2022 body of work, specifically my Illustration, is based on Fashion Design and focuses on exploring the fundamental skills linking to fashion illustrations with artwork from markers, fine liners and acrylic paint, to create interesting textures of the subject at hand.

 I enjoy creating self-portrait illustrations, to tell a story about how I was feeling or to illustrate how I looked on specific days that I’d go to photo shoots. I enjoy mixed media art.

I enjoy creating on applications such as Sketchbook, Photoshop, Indesign and Illustrator as well as Blender for 3D modelling and animations. Being able to have diversity in my creativity really expands my love for creating.

 I’ve been intrigued to open others' eyes to the small details and be able to acknowledge the importance of everything but also those who create the work. I’m a huge believer that creatives are hard workers for we’re sentimental and in touch with our vulnerable side and great observers of detail, making us truly special, for we are able to express that on canvases, and that’s magical.
