Typing with Pencils

Rylsee loves letters. They’re on his mind all day long judging by the way his sketchbook have nothing else drawn in them. I often spend all day staring at letters too—on paper or on a screen—but never thought about them like this. His sketchbook is playful, funny, and often interactive and now that I've been staring at his hand drawn type for a while, I'm starting to develop a fixation on them as well.

Follow @rylsee on instagram if his obsession with letters is rubbing off on you too.

Coloring Book Interview Series, #10: Amelia Grace

One of the best parts of our coloring book experience (besides the coloring) is finding new artists on every page that I might never have come across otherwise. Amelia Grace is the first artist from our newest Coloring Book (Volume 4), that I jumped to contact after I saw her page. Read the interview to find out about her spunky and fantastical troupe of characters!

Spending 2.5 Hours In a Sketchbook



I've always thought that a handy formula for creative success (on any given project) is to give yourself specific constraints to work through. Having limits to work around often kickstarts your creative momentum, and the results can be fantastic. Indian artist Vishnu M Nair bought a small red sketchbook and decided to fill all the pages in one sitting. By the time he reached the back cover of his brand new sketchbook, Vishnu had created 29 illustrations in about 2 hours. NICE.

Maybe some of you doodlers out there should take this challenge on next time you feel the intimidating stare of the blank page.

Tumblr of the Week: Sketchbooking with Fashion and Geometry

Fatma Al-Remaihi loves to draw babes. I have a crush on every one in her sketchbook. There's something so alluring about the consistent pastel color palette over sharp blue ink, which really makes the accessories they wear POP. I can't look away from her stylish boys and girls, drawn with highly detailed faces and dressed in abstract blocks of color. The balance between styles is hypnotic. She makes pretty cool animated gifs too. Read on »

Sketchbook: A Year in Jerusalem





Ever feel homesick for a place you're not even from? I never visited Jerusalem, but these drawings feel like old memories of somewhere I haven't been yet. The artist is Vincent Mahé, a Parisian who spent a year in Jerusalem and brought it back with him in a sketchbook. His sketches include the big touristy sites everyone knows, but also the empty streetsides and tops of buildings that you don't normally see in photos. There's something captivating about the simple lines—-the way he creates shadows with them, the way the drawing seamlessly becomes less detailed the further away from the focus point.

Scandroids



Artem Solop is a Ukrainian artist who constantly daydreams of robots. Or could be a robot, who knows. His sketchbook is packed with page after page of machine madness and I still want more. Gimme ALL the robots. Solop calls it robot pop, a catchy fit for his mech monsters with occasional bursts of neon green and hot pink. Stay plugged in to his work by following him on Behance or his blog.

Fine Lines, Mustached Men, & Rain Drops



Why are we drawn to certain styles, to specific aesthetics? Taste is a peculiar, and tenacious thing. And although I can’t explain it, it’s that magnetism that pulls me to the illustrations of Gabriel Huici. I counted no short of 17 umbrellas. I don’t inherently love umbrellas. His line work is sparse. I don’t inherently love sparse line work. But, I love his pieces. Every one. There is a touch of vaudeville; there is a touch of hipster. The fine lines are so intentional and terse they create suspense- like listening to a pregnant pause or waiting on a dangling participle.
