‘Just Passing Through’ by Maddie Waters

Maddie Waters is an aspiring digital artist and graphic designer based in Appleton, Wisconsin.

“Just Passing Through” (2022) Digital Art by Maddie Waters  From the artist: “This piece features one of my favorite subjects to illustrate: a ghost. More specifically, this piece includes a nomadic ghost standing under heavy rainfall with an umbrella and a suitcase. I love creating simple line art featuring unique designs inspired by nature and all kinds of spooky elements, and I love both the simplicity and versatility of using sheet ghosts as subject matter. I began my artistic journey designing stickers and recently moved on to larger, more full pieces. I hope to continue expanding my artistic realm by trying out new digital art techniques and styles. If you are interested in seeing more of my pieces and following along on my journey, you can find me on Instagram @turbulentwatersart.”
