The Drax Files: Episode 3: Eshi Otawara

New episode 3 has been uploaded on YouTube today of the The Drax Files called Eshi Otawara. Brilliant video production once again and it’s very creative indeed. It went LIVE today! 🙂

Episode 3 details 

“Second Life is too beautiful a tool for us to only be used for plain simple reality” says artist and painter Eshi Otwara.

Having followed this motto for the last 7 years Eshi Otawara has been designing elaborate dresses in the virtual world that defy physical reality.

And this classically trained artist from Zagreb, Croatia, has no problems merging virtual life with her physical identity – it is all dedicated to art you can either touch, look at or…well: wear!

Wether Eshi is in her studio bringing dark dreams to life in oil, chalk or acrylic or floating high above the virtual clouds in avatar form, linking and texturing prim after prim until another unique piece of clothing emerges – Eshi embraces the expressive possibilities of both “realms” to the fullest.

Epsoide 1 and Epsoide 2 can be found here of the The Drax Files. Must watch if you have not already done so!!
