Oodles of Doodles

Hello everyone! Today I would like to share with you some of my own personal doodles and drawings that I have been working on recently. I will have a spread in an upcoming issue of Color Ink Book and have been working hard on new drawings for it. My favorite is my little twist on The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein: "The Giving Boy". He was a huge influence on me as a kid. I would check his books out at the school library and practice drawing by copying his artwork.

I've also been working on a series of 15 new paintings/drawings for an upcoming exhibition in Houston, Texas. I am doing all the paintings in the same neon color scheme. I hope you enjoy and here's to another super productive week! Keep on doodling!

Hi, How Are You

Today I want to introduce (to those who may not be acquainted) the art and music of Daniel Johnston. I was first introduced to his music and then subsequently his artwork when I was a teenager through the soundtrack to the movie KIDS. I immediately fell in love with his music and art. Later I moved to Austin, Texas a place where Daniel used to live. In the center of the city there is a big mural of one of his characters that is now iconic. A frog looking creature with snail like eyes that states Hi, How Are You. It now adorns t-shirts for the city of Austin and is almost like a mascot for the city. So you can kind of say he is a home town hero of mine.

A manic depressive and schizophrenic both his music and art are filled with emotion and with his work you get a direct look into his mind. His art is so pure and child like. Resonating with me in a way few artists have. One of my biggest influences and inspirations, his obvious passion and drive for his work are something that really struck a chord with me. I admire anyone with such drive. Despite any obstacles he has, he has been unrelenting in his pursuit and love of art. I hope you enjoy his music and artwork as much as I do and can draw inspiration from him. I highly advise checking out the documentary about his life The Devil and Daniel Johnston.

The Wonderful World of Mutants

Last year my wife and I spent a year living in Seoul, South Korea. Before leaving the states I did some research and tried to find artists and creative people to connect with. I came across the artist known as Junk House on Flickr. A street artist, illustrator, and sculptor whose bright colors and organic shapes molded into funky characters that immediately grabbed my attention. I also have a background in graffiti and street art and thought she would be the perfect person to contact. She ended up being super friendly and one of the best friends I could have made while living in Seoul. We collaborated on many projects with her group the Seoul Urban Art Project. A collective of street artists both from Korea and abroad as well as photographers and videographers who get together to plan and put up work all over Seoul (filming and photographing it all).

She's one of the most hard working artists I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. Constantly collaborating with different companies in Korea you can find her work all over Seoul. From murals and street art, to paintings and sculpture work, to the collections of doodles she has on her website, I think you'll love her imagination and fun world of mutants and creatures.

For The Wit Of It

You want to know what I like about Michelle Last's illustration style? It's not pretentious or overly complex. Instead, it's always witty. And if you read her blog, you'll discover that such a description fits her personality perfectly. Visit her Flickr feed for plenty more goodies.

Oh, and as an aside: If you haven't joined our Flickr group, do so. It's one of the first places we check for talented artists like Michelle.

Tumblr of the Week: Emmi-Riikka Vartiainen

This week's Tumblr is Emmi-Riikka Vartiainen, an illustrator from Finland, whose Tumblr is filled with woodland creatures and Japanese school girls. Her drawings remind me of the fairy tale picture books and anime shows of my childhood - a time when everything was simpler.

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

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.
