Thank Heavens for Old Books

The art from Ekaterina Panikanova's second ever solo show is brilliant, and a stark reminder that we need to hang onto the tangibles from our history. When I see this type of work I crave for the analog, and cringe to think about a future of digital audio books and downloadable reads. I still want the smell and feel of worn-out pages between my fingers. We're moving too fast. I need a breather. Stop, let's hold hands and look at the beautiful art together.

Found via Colossal.

Member Spotlight: Kerby Rosanes



Kerby Rosanes is a doodle force to be reckoned with. No joke, the man must go through markers like I go through cups of coffee. His style is overwhelming as he completely smothers page after page with funny characters, monsters, objects, and words.



I was first introduced to his work when he sent in a submission to our second coloring book, which we gladly accepted. Follow this doodle maniac over on his blog Sketchy Stories (that updates almost daily).

Drawn Tattoos

The lovely and incredibly talented Wendy MacNaughton has been illustrating tattoos (and the stories behind them) for the tumblr blog; Pen & Ink, and now (deservedly so) she is turning it into a book.

Wendy and her Pen & Ink collaborator Isaac Fitzgerald are in the final stretch of putting it all together, but not before reaching out to me with a last-minute call for submissions. Do you have a tattoo with a compelling story behind it? If so, they want it, and they want it now. Take a pic of your tattoo, write a few words with its story and send it to: penandinkproject {at} gmail {dot } com

Anna "Wana Bo Banna" Gogusey



Anna Wanda Gogusey is our French connection, hailing from across the way, landing in Texas where she does illustration, design and takes art classes for fun at a local college. Anna is a master of her style and has a distinct look to her work.

Her works contain many animals, sometimes on fire, most of the time without eyeballs and have a somewhat demonic, but friendly nature to them.

I met Anna when she interned for me during my agency days. We've been able to work on a couple projects since then including some large scale murals, zines and art shows. Always fun to work with and has great ideas and skills. She also does amazing embroidery!

Thanks Anna! We think you're super rad!

Plunge Into the Shadows

Jenny Wildfang Drawings

I won't pretend for a minute to understand the German text in Jenny Wildfang's dreary sketchbook, but there is something unsettling in her work that breeds discomfort. I'm not quite sure what it is — only that it is there and it is dark. The use of heavy shadows heightens the narrative and the sickly sense that something is not okay. Who are these people drenched in shadows? Do we want to know the secrets they keep?

All I can say is that Jenny is one of my favorite new finds over at our Google+ community, so if you haven't joined, you should!

Member Spotlight: Mason McFee

Holy crap, I just spent too much time on Mason's flickr site. I got lost in the randomness of his doodles and how they seem to land on any damn thing he comes across. His drawings are loose and unpretentious, free to roam, with layers of goofiness but end in an almost perfect layout and composition.

Mason, let's go have a beer, and then draw me something to hang on my wall.

Look-N-Find



Long-time friend of DA, Mr. Jess Smart Smiley is making a children's book he's quite passionate about. It's not often that I post about Kickstarter type projects, but I couldn't help falling in love with his cute monsters and playful scenes. The book is titled, Rumpus on the Run, and is Kickstarter's first "look-n-find" book.

Lucky for us, Jess passed along some of his sketches from over the years. Take a look below and make sure to check out his Kickstarter page, the rewards especially, he's even offering to draw some of you right into the book ;)
