Sketchcraft

Crystal balls, ouija, magic circles… Is this a sketchbook or a spellbook? Emma Black pulls art and occult together in a hypnotic style. There’s something in the cryptic imagery that makes it come off more spiritual than spooky. Again and again I find myself mesmerized by her ritualistic repetition of geometric patterns and shading in thin, straight lines. Her series of animal sketches has the same magical undertones, where in pencil she draws the natural, then adds an element of the unnatural in red. It’s a compelling sketch style that’s simplistic and mystic. 

You can follow Emma Black on instagram to keep up with her witchy business.

Coloring Book Interview Series, #15: Nigel Sussman

Let's talk about Nigel Sussman. Most of his art is equal parts mechanical and wacky, a combination that never fails to amuse me. His drawings can seem like an overload of details at first glance, but once your eyes start following the assembly line of industrial parts you’ll see how fun the flow can be. Read on to find what Nigel has to say about his fantastic artwork AND see how he colored in his own page from our third volume.

Javier Ordaz: Women in Black

Javier's Instagram and website are filled with black & white sumi ink illustrations painted with a thick brush. The bold strokes and deepness of the black makes the images feel as if the ink is still wet on the page. Many of his images have a dark, slightly sinister feel to them, but a series of portraits caught my eye. Javier has painted a series of women in loving detail while still maintaining his gestural, loose style. The series makes me wonder who these women are, and what part they played in Javier's life.

Barcelona, 365

I'm in the mood for some sight-seeing today. I took a quick tour around Barcelona through the sketchbook of Òscar Julve. He is an illustrator from Spain who challenged himself to draw his city for an entire year. Barcelona, 365 is the well-chosen titled for his blog. I really enjoy seeing artists set specific motivational challenges for themselves to get sketching, even if it's an idea as simple as doodling your way through your hometown. It's easy to get caught in the details when sketching something right in front of you, but Julve's talented hands stick to creating rough sketches out of thin lines that evocatively capture the ambiance of Barcelona's corners.

Hop, Hop. Fashion, Baby.

Have you heard of Fifi Lapin? She's an international it-girl, style guru, and fashion icon who posts photos of her outfits online. She has collaborated with well-known designers who love her look and been featured in fashion magazines - even praised by Vogue as "an unlikely - but powerful - fashion force." What sets her apart from the rest of the fashionista world? Well, she’s an illustrated bunny.

Fifi Lapin's blog exists to answer the question, "What shall I wear today?" Most days she posts drawings of herself wearing opulently stylish outfits that she takes straight off the latest runways and red carpets. Fifi's posts sometimes include cute little updates on the globetrotting fashion adventures of a fabulously spoiled hare-ess. It’s a ridiculous and clever spin on fashion blogging! From now on, you’ll never want to read a blog that isn’t written by a rabbit again. (For the record, I am a Holland Lop and I am typing this with my fluffy paws.)

Dorothy Leung: Etched into Paper

In one of the gallery sections of Dorothy Leung's website, she describes how viewing vintage cartoons at a museum in Basel created a turning point in her style as an illustrator. The influence of that style is apparent in the tiny line after line after tiny line and minuscule details of this plant series. The dark lines seem scratched into the surface so deeply and precisely as if they are etched in my screen. I see more influence than just the vintage cartoons in these pieces - she has imitated the bare layout used in old drawings cataloging flowers, plants and vegetables.

Dorothy is an expert in creating delicate dimension with only these small lines. With mostly very thin objects, she knows how to meticulously layer the lines to create a tiny shadow. She is creating all these drawings of plants as a part of #The100DayProject, and will have a beautiful, complete series – her own plant catalog - once the 100 days come to an end.

Soft Shading, Bold Contrast

Elfandiary’s sketchbook is magic. I’ve been bewitched by the soft shading + sharp geometric cut-outs coming together to make something that is delicate and bold at the same time. Page after page of glamorous people are drawn in a style that is realistic in some parts and sketchy in others. It’s both exciting and elegant! The artist has also posted a few mesmerizing time lapse videos of their drawing process that you can see right here.
