Illustrations Inspired by Mythology and Religious Iconography

Originally from Nashville, Emily Fundis moved in 2007 to earn her BFA in illustration and animation from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and has lived in the city ever since.

Her work combines elements of natural history along with imagery inspired by mythology and religious iconography. She uses technical, scientific studies of skulls, animals, insects, and other natural objects as visual fuel for her more elaborate, imaginative illustrations. She works primarily in ink, graphite, and watercolor.
