ART: Wishcandy

Every now & then I'll stumble upon an artist who's magical alternate universe makes me wish I was a two dimensional character, and boy would I love to be a Wishcandy girl. 

Inspired by "retro culture, street fashion, kitsch, beauty, and the grotesque", Wishcandy is the creation of Sashiko Yuen. 

Sashiko describes her work as a 'sassy candy coated horror show', the girls she draws look like modern versions of B Movie babes with pastel hair, rad tattoos and clothes that I find myself constantly lusting after. 
And with collections titled 'Rebel Grrrls' and 'Food Erotica' and her girl gang of characters including Enid Coleslaw & Sailor Moon, Wishcandy is a girl after my own heart.


'Comfort Queen'


'Not all is noble'

You can find more of her work on her WEBSITE, follow her on TUMBLR & BLOGSPOT and buy her beautiful work as prints or pins from her ETSY
