Illustration 2022 “Mullet Boyfriends” and “Mullet Girlfriends”, original risograph print Artist Statement: Hi! My name is Darynn and I’m from a small rural town outside Champaign Illinois called Tuscola. I’m from a big family with three sisters and three dogs of varying sizes: a teacup chihuahua, a Boston terrier, and an English Mastiff. My dad is an artist and always encouraged me to create growing up, so it was natural for me to end up here. I’m a traditional artist! I tend to want to create work that either excites me or is very personal. My inspirations come from old fashion and style trends, all kinds of music, and comics.
