"Anime-stalgia" is not a real word. It's something I made up a few years ago (during a Corona lockdown to be exact). At the time, I was fascinated with anime, the Japanese illustrated comics. During the early lockdowns, when the future appeared scary and unknown, I found myself in a melancholic, nostalgic mood. Hence the name "Anime-stalgia". I made a few works by this name. This is an early version. quite simple; black ink on white cotton A-5 paper. the imagery is made up (as usual with my works) of actual still-life drawings of nature with a total immersion into surreal forms.

All the works on this blog are Printable and for sale. They are Barbara Adler originals. I love talking about my art and almost any subject related, so feel free to DM to converse and purchase my art, making it yours.
