Coloring Book Interview Series, #14: Chucho Nieto



Coloring books are a personal, therapeutic experience for me. Sometimes I can spend an hour (or even longer) filling in just a single page, which gives me a lot of time to think about the illustration I'm spending my focus on. Unlike the average coloring book, the Doodlers Anonymous coloring books include a list of all the artists involved and where to find them. That's how I ended up asking Chucho Nieto a bunch of the odd little questions that spark while I'm coloring away!

Kate Gavino's Drawings of Readings



Quotes are a powerful force. Reading the right ones can change your entire perspective on life, love, and other big deals. Weird to think that a few words can have that effect! Kate Gavino is a New Yorker who goes to book readings regularly, and isnít satisfied with just tweeting a good quote when she hears it. In her prolific Last Nightís Reading series, she sketches portraits of the authors while she is at their reading, alongside a favorite quote from the night. Itís the perfect marriage of her passions for art literature! So many of these are inspiring and thought-provokingÖ I think Iíve just been convinced to start checking out book readings around me. See plenty more Ľ

Pop Up Art

This sketchbook is so action-packed that some of the pages are literally popping out at me! Dominic Damien uses inventive combinations of ink, pencil, watercolor and acrylic meshed with comic book clippings. These elements of collage are so deftly integrated into Damienís bold, striking art style that at first I did not realize they werenít drawn in. Photos of his expansive moleskine art also include helpful closeups that bring a microscope up to the best details and textures that you miss while looking at the big picture. See more Ľ

April Spooks



I never wait until October to enjoy a good dose of spooky. This Italian artist's sketchbook is a small town of goofy monsters, all drawn in sepia pen. The bizarre creatures Paride Bertolin dreams up are scary in design, but the darkness became lighthearted after I noticed their awkward and playful expressions. I find it so endearing to see them looking gawky and stiff, like nervous new acquaintances or someone who hates having their picture taken. If the quirky and the macabre are right up your alley, go look at Bertolinís sketchbook right now!

Scenic Side of a Comic Artist





David Newbold's website, Twitter, and Imgur are filled with countless pages of comics and graphic novels. While these are stunningly rendered, I was immediately more captivated by his observational sketches. He uses walnut ink to create beautiful, sprawling, intricately detailed sketches while traveling throughout the world. In their sepia tone, they feel like a memory.

Newbold's skill with ink is exceptional. He brings out incredible detail in the foreground, creates shadow and texture with well-placed strokes, and paints appropriately subtle backgrounds. Iím completely envious of his confidence with ink! See more Ľ

Illustrated Travel Journals



Chris Buchholz has mastered something I aspire to create myself: the illustrated travel journal. He's had the opportunity to do a good amount of travel, and his experiences spill out brilliantly onto the pages of his sketchbooks, accompanied by written reflection. Chris's sketchbook is his constant companion as he travels through and lives in these different places. The images you see here are his time spent in the Dominican Republic and Italy. The drawings themselves are bright and beautiful, especially when seeing them on such simple a canvas as a sketchbook.



Chris's technique with line and color brings the viewer into the experience: you can feel how hot it is in the DR, and how delicious a super fria cerveza would be at midday. Furthermore, you can taste how fresh the fruit is at the Italian market. Read on Ľ

Tumblr of the Week: Tonto Garabato



The sketches of Valeria Alvarez are often limited to black and white, sometimes an extra well-chosen color. Her drawings are mystic and whimsical, like postcards sent from strange places she visits in her mind.

What looks simple at first glance is actually made up of countless precise patterns within the shadows. A huge part of the magic lies in all the sketchy little details within the intricate shading and textures of her drawings. See more Ľ
