Journey of a Tiny Explorer



Umbra is a hand drawn animation, a mix of drawing and pastel, that I came across about a year ago. It is still one of my favorites. Simple drawings with such a huge impact. The animation conveys such great emotion. I must have watched this a million times. I have a little folder in my bookmarks for links to watch when feeling a little in the dumps creatively. This video is at the top of the list. I hope you love it as much as I do.

Tumblr of the Week:
Everything is Vibrating



I could stare forever at all the little details on Jon Carling's intricately shaded sketches. His many drawings of original creatures tap directly into my love for folklore, and I get carried away imagining what the mythology behind them would be. Carling also has a couple of whimsical yet haunting animated shorts (watch the videos after the fold) that are def worth taking a look at. See more »

The Many Faces of Walter White

You know a show is great when it inspires a ton of fan art, and Breaking Bad has certainly given us a lot to doodle about. As the show reaches its final episode, we've decided to put together a little collection of some of our favorite Walter White drawings from around the web. What's cool about this collection is that you can pinpoint the transformation of Walter White's character into Heisenberg through the different styles and methods each artist chose to use.

The Work of Kymia Nawabi



I first met fine artist Kymia Nawabi at her graduate thesis show while we were both students at the University of Florida (we later became roommates when I first moved to New York). I was immediately drawn to her large scale mixed media work, filled with texture, disfigured bodies and limbs, swirling around in a controlled chaos. The pieces felt like surreal dreams or memories, deeply personal and sometimes bizarre or disturbing.

Kymia's latest work continues to explore new narratives and mythologies with expertly rendered figures, beautiful lines and intricate detail. I'm constantly blown away by her skilled use of different mediums, her drawing ability and the conceptual nature of her work. Her talents were on full display in 2011 as winner of Bravo's reality competition show "Work of Art: The Next Great Artist", resulting in a solo exhibition at The Brooklyn Museum. You can find more of Kymia's work at www.kymianawabi.com.

Drawing with Carly Jean Andrews



Carly Jean Andrews is an illustrator and artist based in Brooklyn, New York. We've been friends for a decade now, and I've watched her drawings and artwork evolve and grow throughout that time.

When I look at someone's art, I usually judge what's in front of me, the skill involved in making a specific piece, or the concepts and ideas behind it. I sometimes forget about the thousands of drawings, sketchbook pages, and hours spent defining an original style and point of view. Having followed Carly's work for the past ten years, I see that time and commitment in everything she does. She draws more than anyone I know, and it's evident in her confident linework, unique portraits and exploration of color and figure. These are some of her most recent drawings, and they remind me how your art can change and progress through years of constant practice. I look forward to seeing how this work continues to evolve over time.
