Manga Mondays ~ Laphet

Laphet is a professional digital artist from South Korea. Upon first looking at her work you may mistakenly liken it for a more realistic version of Mabel Lucie Attwell. However, upon a second reading it is clear Laphet’s illustrations substitute to “cute” for the “creepy”.

Large-eyed children often look straight at you. Instead of having a dead stare at is usual for invoking eeriness, Laphet’s characters clearly have their cogs turning, as if they are plotting against you, the viewer. Uncomfortable, yes, but beautiful nonetheless.

You can find more of Laphet’s work on her DeviantArt page, and her more recently launched Tumblr.
