About the Artist:
Julia Lundman is both a traditional fine artist and seasoned commercial artist in San Francisco, creating paintings and drawings inspired by myth, folklore and fantasy. Painting in oil, watercolor or acrylic, her process begins with sketching, developing ideas further on paper or canvas. Her technique moves from a detailed underpainting (grisaille) to glazed layers of color and detail often incorporating natural materials like gold leaf, oxidized metals, pressed flowers and leaves.
Julia graduated from the American Academy of Art in downtown Chicago in 1993. She began her professional career as a background painter at Calabash Animation, a traditional animation studio. She designed on two independent short films, “Heads Will Roll” (Dir. Wayne Brejcha) and visual art direction on “Stubble Trubble” (Dir. Joe Merideth), nominated for an Academy Award in 2000 in the Animated Shorts category.
Her experience brought her to San Francisco to design for clients Electronic Arts, Zynga, Disney Interactive, Lego, and Ghostbot. Her fine art work has been published in Infected by Art, volumes 8, 9 and 10, and Imagine FX magazine.
