Mushroom Girls Virus is the debut book from acclaimed illustrator and art director Deanne Cheuk. It features the worlds first fully embroidered linen cloth cover and contains a collection of delicate, psychedelic drawings, paintings and illustrations revolving around the theme of girls and mushrooms.
In this publication Cheuk fuses meticulous pencil drawings and collages of girls, landscapes, mushrooms and birds with sporadic bursts of watercolor and three-dimensional elements of mushrooms and graphic shapes.
Published for the first time are Cheuks oil paintings on canvas. She says, "I wanted to explore the mushroom girls in another medium. With all the time it took to mix the colors and paint the strokes up close, I really started to get lost in their world."
Cheuks work can also be seen in Romantik, Lavender, Grimm and Coast to Coast.
