phantasmagoric abstractions

Aisha Diandra / photographer. artist. designer. likes to dress up & pose, not a model. horror aficionado.
This blog is for my art, expression, inspiration, ramblings & everything in between.
I like the strange & spooky, beautiful & sensual, surreal & grotesque. contradictions fascinate me.

(the photos above are my own work.)

I’ve been so caught up with everything that’s happened recently that I forgot to post a photo of me after losing my #ink virginity. Thank you Tarita Aurora for making the #anatomical #bat #skeleton a permanent part of me (since I’ve worn out the print on the necklace that inspired this #tattoo) 😘
Oh, don’t mind the little scratch near my hip bone. Snorkelling above coral in shallow water = scrapes.

Kind of bummed I didn’t end up needing to be out today. I kind of like my #outfit a lot. It was out for 2 hours lol. Oh well…I ended up eating nachos (for shame!!) and now I’m going to clean my room (I mean, look at it!) since I’m done with this painting class!! I should sleep but that enormous coffee from this morning is still working… #kreepsville666 #bones #skeleton #fashion #blackfriday #dangerfield #stripes #jeffreycampbell #lita #spikes #studs #alternative #aishaphantasma #me #toomanyhashtagsbutidontcare

#multitasking is just how I roll. Writing up my #research submission #essay, looking up more historical #anatomical #drawing references, and continuing to work on my 2nd #anatomy #multimedia piece. Also hating vertebrae right now for being a bitch to draw. #scientificillustration #anatomicaldrawing #photography #mixedmedia #fineart #art #illustration #bones #hips #ribs #skeleton #skull #chalkpastels #pastels  (Taken with Instagram)

Finished at last. Might consider adding handwritten labels to add to the #vintage #anatomical #drawing look if I have time after finishing the other piece. #anatomy #anatomicaldrawing #scientificillustration #illustration #organs #veins #bones #skeleton #skin #body #human #humanbody #science #art #photography #fineart #mixedmedia #multimedia #pastels #chalkpastels #ink  (Taken with Instagram)

I think I’ve finally finished this piece! Photo printed on A2 fine art paper, anatomical details hand drawn on the print with ink, graphite, & charcoal. Now to finish the 2nd in the series! #photography #art #mixedmedia #ink #graphite #charcoal #anatomy #anatomical #anatomicaldrawing #fineart #print #bones #skeleton #aishadiandra  (Taken with Instagram)
