Loish is an amazing illustrator artist, animator, and graphics expert who's main media is photoshop with Wacom tablets. Recently, Wacom tablets featured her art on the outside of their tablet boxes, which is an honor. She is from the Netherlands and is a member of deviantart. When my father passed away last year I bought an artwork made by her to remember him. It's called "drift". I admire her skill level and how whimsical her art is.
