For Brooklyn based artist and illustrator, Alana Dee Haynes, lines and patterns were her long waited epiphany. She studied Photography at FIT, where she constantly struggled with fashion and fashion photography assignments. Her rebellious spirit forced her to find her own style by mixing photography and illustration. The key? Patterns.

Alana sees patterns everywhere and with her Micro Pen she helps us see them too. Following the flow of the photographs, she draws high contrast patterns that create mysterious and alluring compositions. With her technique she enhances the visual and emotional experience of the photograph, revealing something that appears to be natural and intricate to the photographs. Her technique has busted her career in the editorial and fashion fields, working for magazines such as DASH, REVS (http://www.revsmag.com/), etc.

The simplicity and uniqueness of Alana’s technique reminds us that patterns are all around us. We find them in our bodies, our minds and all around nature. And if we open our eyes to them we can find real and imaginary worlds yet to be discovered.
