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.

Member Spotlight: Anke Braatz



I love that Anke describes her sketchbooks as "everyday training." It's exactly on-point, as she uses them to practice her craft and quickly capture a moment of everyday life, page after page.

Beyond her sketchbook pages, what I like most about her work are the drawings on different papers that layer to form a perfect design and final illustration.

August's Guest Contributor:
Sara E. Barnes

For the month of August we are welcoming fellow blogger and illustrator Sara E. Barnes as a guest contributor here on DA. Sara is the creator and voice behind the wonderfully curated website Brown Paper Bag and is working towards her MFA (Illustration Practice) at the Maryland Institute College of Art.

Sara's own work is an amazing mix of color and collage of scraps, ink, paint, and embroidery. I'm fascinated by how the loose pieces of cut paper come together to reveal such a complete and controlled final artwork. I've gathered a few of my favorite works by her here to introduce you.

A Little Break from the Hustle and Bustle

Sometimes I crave the simple things.

Lots of white space. Scribbles that are easy on the eye. Something almost child-like and free, but with the neat hand of adulthood.

These hand-drawn collages by Ariel Aberg-Riger do the trick.

To me they say, "ahhh, relax a little, life is nice and a bit funny sometimes". That's what they say to me, anyhow. Enjoy!

The Biggest Doodle I've Ever Seen!

The title really says it all for this one! When my friend Maciej said he had a huge doodle to show me... well, my cheeks flushed a little and I began to think up a polite exit strategy. But the image he sent me was actually an ongoing doodle collage by illustrator Zach Johnsen. And yes, it is indeed huge and awesome!

For what seems like a long time now, Zach has been neatly collaging all of his drawings & rough sketches into one amazing continuous doodle. The length of this thing is amazing! I actually had time to reheat my mug of coffee in the microwave while I waited for the page to load. Go see what I mean... over here! click click!



Bonus round: For all my Where's Wally enthusiasts, here's a few special details that you can hunt for in Zach's crazy-big collage... best of luck!

Relentless Optimism

I stumbled upon Chad Kouri's work awhile ago through Will Bryant's website. I believe they had done a collaboration on a project and I was completely refreshed from the colors, textures, and style of Chad's work. I am particularly drawn to his wonderful collages and use of very minimal layouts with them. I read a quote somewhere that basically said it's not what is on the page, but what's not. When I look at Chad's work my mind is free to roam through each piece and create my own realities surrounding what it means, what it doesn't mean, etc..



Not only does he do amazing collage work but he also gets down with some mean hand drawn typography. I really love how he collaged his doodles, drawings, typographic designs and scrap pieces of paper for the Write Now: Artists and Letterforms. Whenever I can see an artists process it makes me feel pretty normal about all the things both internally and externally I go through to create a piece. Seeing the visual thought of working through a problem tends to inspire my process and shines new light on the directions I can take.

Between Tribes and Villages

Angela Fox is an artist based in Texas, with a very interesting style. Since I discovered her, she immediately caught my attention and made me think, what could be her inspiration to create such beautiful drawings and collages, what's the story behind her works? So having so many questions in my head I decided to talk a little bit with her and this is what she kindly told me: Read on
