Collages of Strange Anatomy





Come visit the misunderstood creatures of Beetle Blossom's zoo. Kate McCann carefully cuts apart and rearranges pages from old medical books or fashion magazines that are antique and forgotten, and from the many tiny pieces of paper she creates beastly and fragile hybrids made of bones, insects, plants, human anatomy, and more.

Her paper creatures are grotesque and engrossing, yet so disturbing and elegant that instead of looking away you want to peer closer. McCann says, "Part science fiction, and part fairy story, these collages are like scientific records of my discoveries." See more »

Tumblr of the Week: Making a Mess

The gem I found while browsing our tumblr followers this week is the blog of Gavin Ashworth, a student in New Zealand. His messy collaged doodles are made on found paper (some sheets look like school papers), sometimes incorporating unexpected materials like wood and melted plastic. It's a dirty, damaged mishmash that looks disgusting and awesome at the same time.

If you're addicted to tumbling as well as doodling, follow Doodlers Anonymous on Tumblr for even more daily inspiration. You might even see yourself on there!

The Sketchbook of Julia Yellow



There's something wonderful about the sketchbook of Julia Yellow. From the interesting compositions to the different rendering techniques, each page is a delight. The artist's sense of humor and personality are peppered throughout, with a slight touch of collage adding texture and depth.

June's Guest Contributor: Rik Catlow (aka rikcat)



I first discovered and wrote about Rik Catlow's drawings back in September of 2012, during a member spotlight on his "urban pop art" style. I've been following his updates ever since and his tricked-out collages just keep getting better.

It's my pleasure to introduce him as our guest contributor for the month of June. He'll be blogging alongside our usual team and highlighting artists and other visual finds that are sure to peak your interest.



In the meantime, be sure to check out his incredibly cool paint jobs on smashed aluminum cans. He's also got an Etsy shop filled with original handmade art and as an added bonus, we are giving away a Rik Catlow digital wallpaper that's hot off the presses for you to enjoy. Grrr!

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.
