Kei Acedera

Kei Acedera is a Toronto based concept artist who, along with her talented husband Bobby Chiu, runs an artist collective known as Imaginism Studios. Kei is known for her immensely appealing character and concept designs for movies such as Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland", and her best selling illustrations for Harper Collins children's books. Kei also happens to be a big Beatles fan, and this piece she did just absolutely floors me. It is absolutely one of the major gems in this book; her linework is so delicate, as if she applied just the lightest touch of the pencil as she breathed life into the drawing. I love how each Beatle looks fully immersed in the creation of music, and the likenesses are dead on. Absolutely thrilling.
