Artist profile: Xamag (Daria)

Xamag, aka Daria, is an artist based in Russia. I think I discovered her while browsing fashion-related art on deviantArt, since she has several character wardrobe collections. She makes the webcomics The Black Brick Road of O.Z. and Momento Mori. (You can also read BBR on its own website.)

I’ve read a little of BRR and I think it’s pretty neat. There are several interactive Flash pages – if you’re reading on the .com site, be sure to scroll all the way down to the comments section to find the links. Also, Daria created a game that you can play on Codepen, in collaboration with Rachel Nabors.

Here are Daria’s artworks that I like. Incidentally, they are all from BBR – but she has plenty of other good stuff for other projects, too.
