Extraordinary Illustrations on Ordinary Objects

We know these aren't exactly doodles, but the illustrated sculptures of French artist Gilbert Legrand are too fun not to share. He has been working in Toulouse for 20 whole years, dividing his time between designing characters and book covers, and using everyday household objects as the canvas for his illustrations. Legrand takes ordinary junk and transforms it into extraordinary characters by using a wide array of different materials like wire, wood, paint, and nails to defy your expectations. It takes an impressive imagination to look at stuff you use on a daily basis and still manage to draw some fresh, exciting inspiration from it. I stared at the above mouse for a while, so absorbed by the character illustrated that it took me a while to even figure out it was drawn on a hanger.

Many of his sculptures have a poetic, humorous twist to them, like the waiter made from a corkscrew who is carrying a bottle of wine on his tray or the lovers embracing on scissors. I had a lot of fun scrolling through his work and appreciating the way he can transform the most mundane objects into unexpected sources of delight.

The Work of Michele Guidarini

I've always been attracted to art and drawings that take risks in the subject and method of execution. The work of Michele Guidarini does both. From the obese, pill-popping Mickey Mouse to the religious overtones, the work is not safe. It challenges and forces a reaction. The drawings are filled with interesting textures, challenging themes, and beautiful line work.

Check out his instagram account to get views into his sketchbook and process.

Tumblr of the Week: Lucha!

I'm glad I stumbled over Luciana Ojeas blog lurking within our tumblr followers. She's an Argentinian illustrator whose sketchbook is filled with countless quirky characters coming alive on every page. Occasionally, they even wander off the paper and onto random objects. Maybe it's from all the screaming and smiling and arms waving in the air, but I love the sense of excitement I get from her crazy little people.

Drawn Wallpapers for the Digital Age:
Art by Edau, #9

Edau is a Miami-based illustration rockstar. I've had the privilege to work with him side-by-side for almost two years, which has been the catalyst to both interesting and heated conversations. And with the upcoming December onslaught of endless art exhibits in Miami, it couldn't be a more perfect time to make Edau's An Art Show compilation of characters our next wallpaper.

October's Guest Contributor:
Kristopher Kotcher (aka Frenemy)

About six months ago I discovered Kristopher's art over on Instagram, and I've been an avid fan ever since. The first thing you'll notice when you follow his daily feed is the amount of work he puts out. The second, is the pure fun and enjoyment that resonates in his work, it's obvious he loves drawing and creating his quirky characters and worlds.

"I enjoy creating a world all my own, to manipulate as I please, create things never seen, get lost in the process of patterns and lines, the colors, meticulous detail. To feel the wonder the way you would when you're a kid. This is something I can never let go of."

Kristopher is a self-taught artist from Austin, Texas currently living in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and lucky for us, he'll be guest blogging with our team for the month of October. Get to know him better on frenemylife.com and make sure to follow his Instagram for a constant feed of inspiration.

The Collaborations of The Yok and Sheryo

The Yok and Sheryo are one of the best collaborative duos working today. Their characters can be found on walls all over the world, from their home base in New York to Cambodia, Singapore, Vietnam, Australia, Thailand and Mexico (just to name a few). Their individual styles complement each other so well, and their work is a great example of how two artists can evolve together and influence one another through ongoing collaboration. To see more of their murals, drawings, and paintings, visit theyok.com and sheryoart.com.
