Elise Geschardt

Elise Geschardt is an illustrator who is focused on creating narrative based work. The majority of her work is made up of zines, image series, and segments of books. An example of this is Geschardt’s thesis, which is a chapter from a graphic novel that the artist wishes to some day complete. Geschardt’s thesis, like the majority of her work, follows her goal as an artist: to create work that makes viewers uncomfortable. Most of her images use extreme black and white and hatching techniques to depict subject matter that is psychological, surreal, and horrific. Geschardt’s desire is to make art that forces people to take a step back, in fear and self reflection, while still never removing their eyes from the work, desperate to see what might come next.
