Supersonic Visits: Rachel Suggs.

Artist Rachel Suggs illustrates lovely fantasies with great intricacy and ability.  Recently Supersonic got the chance to visit her studio in Baltimore where she is attending the Maryland Institute College of Art working on her BFA in illustration.  Her work, however, is a testament to the fact that illustration can also be fine art.  See more of Rachel’s studio below:

I go through my old drawings and sketchbooks from childhood because a. reminiscing is fun and b. I was really creative as a kid because I didn’t have as many outside influences. Many of my “re-dos” are unfinished because the real fun for me was re-drawing the outfits. I was obsessed with adventurers and the idea of traveling/ going on a journey or quest. A lot of these lady warriors had character profiles, but I’m gonna be honest here: the made-up words I used are too embarrassing to share with anyone. 

I made up Ixia when I was 11. She’s on a quest for… like an amulet or something. Or her amulet gives her powers? I don’t remember.

I made up Moira when I was probably 8. I played a lot of Threads of Fate. She’s obviously inspired by Mint.

She doesn’t have a name. I guess I was just having fun with making up a costume and items.

I think Zaren actually made it into a story I wrote once about a band of traveling companions. She’s the youngest (like, 16 or so) and comes from a tribe living in the woods. She has an attitude. I really want to finish the newer sketch/ add color because her hair is pink.

Valerie is very special. Her character grew up with me. I continued to draw her from her conception (when I was 9) all the way through high school and even in college. She’s transformed from a wanderer to a princess to being a bitchy teenager. She’s constantly transforming. It was fun to re-draw her based on her original sketch.

Cila Leerah (yeah… see why I’m embarrassed about these made-up words??) is a wild warrior woman. She’s a bad-ass fighter and is incredibly nimble and is skilled with a bow and arrow. Her companion is a snake. I drew her a few times over in my life, but originally came up with her when I was 10 or 11.

Anyway, this is so much fun! I will definitely do some more (I have about 70 sketchbooks or so spanning from age 7 to 22 full of these ladies and a few dudes).
