Stylistic Portraits with a Ballpoint Pen



I discovered the drawings of Milton Lozada while browsing through the artists on the Sktchy app (which by the way has been growing into a really great community). Milton is a tattoo artist working out of South Florida, whose style of drawing really came across to me in the portraits he inks with a simple ballpoint pen. To me, they all seem to be referencing a future we have yet to come across.

He's got a nice collection of work to be seen over on his Instagram feed as well.

Craving a Hug Right Now



Mmm, that looks cozy. I found myself thinking that repeatedly while looking through this series of drawings. Each girl is wrapped up tight in an embrace with an animal friend or with herself. Even though there are cutesy elements to every sketch, they seem drowned out by a looming sense of loneliness. Who knew hugging animals in sweaters could be so gloomy?

Ani Castillo describes drawing as catching her anxieties like butterflies and pinning them down to a piece of paper so she can see them a little bit more clearly. I couldn't have said it more eloquently myself.

Heads Will Roll



I'm really enjoying the folksy art coming from Emmanuel Gutiérrez (aka EMMGUT) out of Costa Rica. His style feels familiar yet unique. I love how simple the drawings present in just black ink and then how they completely pop off the page when he adds the color and shading. His instagram feed is chock full of good stuff.

Everything is Connected by Drawn Lines



I recently discovered Saimon Chow's work and now I'm infatuated with it. All day long, with the visual bombardment the internet provides, it's hard to come across something that truly captures your attention and is unique enough to deserve it.

Saimon is an accomplished artist and designer out of New York with a full portfolio of illustration styles, but it's his one-color drawings that won me over. They're a collision of opposite cultures, made with bold strokes and drowning in symbolism. I especially enjoy how he connects elements in the drawings with thin lines, leading us through a visual narrative.

Primal Drawings and Falling Limbs



Piotr’s work is pretty and primal. The artist's rural, folk-art sensibility is expressed in the masks and dense tribal and geometric patterns. Reminiscent of wood block prints or cave paintings, his work tells a rugged tale about nature and human nature. Visit his website for more.

Featured Artist #21: Greg Kletsel

Greg Kletsel is a drawing machine. In all seriousness, I believe he must be built of metal and moving parts with at least one robotic arm and an infinite supply of ink. That's the only thing that could explain the amount of work he outputs.

I met Greg a thousand years ago when he interviewed at the studio I worked at. The position didn't play out, but I liked his drawing skills and asked if he'd draw up an idea I had for a t-shirt. That's how Tools of the Trade was born (it's still one of my favorite tees).

Today, Greg is a full-time illustrator and designer based in Brooklyn, New York who's rocking it on the illustration scene. Cranking out zines, comics, posters, and all while filling up sketchbook pages by the minute. I have tons of respect for Greg and so it made perfect sense to feature his work in an exclusive drawn interview. He of course did not take the task lightly and simply blew our minds away with his drawn responses to each question. Check out the detail, line work and thought behind each drawing. Wow!

Tumblr of the Week: Mangun



It's interesting how we can immediately identify a person's face in drawings, even when, upon closer inspection, they barely contain any characteristics of real humans. Indonesian artist Popo Mangun's black and white drawings are an example of this mental habit. His tumblr is a gallery of strange portraits, whose geometric shapes are reminiscent of ancient tribal masks.
