I Tried to Draw You Last Night

Brandon Vosika's series "I Tried to Draw You Last Night" feels like a tribute to friendship. He's caught his friends in natural poses; the drawings feeling as easy and sincere as a friendship should be. It's not a simple task to draw people who are close to you – you want them to see the thought and care you put into making something just for them.

Brandon's technique and use of materials is another aspect of these pieces that caught my eye. He's painting with watercolor but not on watercolor paper, hence the uneven wrinkling of the paper. Brandon's rejection of "proper" materials enhances the casual nature of the pieces. I love his varying line weight in each of the drawings. Shapes and forms are suggested, lines trail off into nothing - these are truly sketches, but as personal pieces and as a body of work, they feel like more than an afterthought dashed off on a scrap piece of paper.

Serial Doodling

I began following Eric von Boxtel on Instagram a few months ago, when his layered and full-colored doodles popped up on my feed. They instantly caught my attention because there's probably nothing I like more than thick black doodled lines over a backdrop of color. It looks easy, it looks like a mish mash of a mess, like a kid who might have gotten away with a box of markers, but it's not at all the case.

These scribbles and shapes of color are intentional and come together so perfectly. I love looking at each spread, trying to find something new or to figure what he's drawn first on the page. If you want to be mesmerized for a full minute and forty-five seconds, watch this time-lapse video.

Watching Over You

Who are these giant creatures looming over towns and forests in the night? They are some of the odd and playful creations from Matt Forsythe's illustrations. Forsythe has done some seriously cool work in comics and on a show called Adventure Time (maybe you’ve heard of it). I love these wondrous delights he has been posting recently on his blog... Dream-like environments with melancholic colors and tons of whimsically serene little details surrounding the mysterious giants.

Neon Ghosts

When it comes to art, my eyes have always been inherently drawn to brightness surrounded by black. Graham Yarrington's smokey dark nestling around bright neon are exactly what I like to see. It's too easy to get lost inside his mysterious night scenes with ghostly shapes glowing colorfully in the shadows.

Tumblr of the Week: Oh, Rinji!

I came across a gorgeous blog filled with tons of drawings of these strange beings. They're drawn in ink and watercolor by an English teacher in Japan, who goes by ohrinji. I can't look away from the interesting color combinations, or the visually inventive characters and their surroundings. The color schemes, the contrast, the designs—I'm almost swooning.

Simple Lines with Such Great Meaning

Art that sticks to the basics is often the most compelling. When I found these doodles by an illustration student named Laurel, I lost track of time and scrolled through months and months of drawings before I realized how deep I had gone. Many of her drawings are childlike, but each rough line was drawn with purpose. The best for me are her series of giant girls wandering the world, sitting on waterfalls and poking your house.

It's National WHAT Day?


Did you know that April 14th was National High As You Can Reach Day? I can't believe I forgot, but hopefully I accidentally celebrated by reaching up at some point. I'll never miss an obscure holiday again now that I follow National What Day, a recently formed blog with a catchy idea. Last month, Thoka Maer moved from Berlin to New York and dove straight into appreciating American culture by doing something special for all of the national appreciation days. She posts almost-daily animated pencil drawings relevant to which National _____ Day it is. Whether it's pennies, pencils, or specific foods—I'm excited to see Maer's daily reminders to celebrate the little things!
