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!

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

I Want More

I know I'm not the only one who feels this way but I am going to make this announcement anyway.

I love flickr as much as I love surprises. And books. And Nutella.

It is so easy to discover so many great pieces of art and the artists behind them. I go on it daily and look forward to new uploads for me to find. Here are a few of my favorite discoveries in the recent past that have kept me happy and motivated. Eye candy ahead, enjoy.

When Inside Comes Out

I bought a book by Sabrina Ward Harrison titled "Spilling Open" a few years back. It transformed my approach to art. The book is, I believe, the first of a few of her published art journals. It is filled with loose, colorful, scribbles, doodles, paint strokes, hand lettering, photos, found objects and more all collaged together, forming very striking, energetic eye candy. More than pretty pictures, she bares her soul on every page with brutal honesty. Freeing inspiration spills out of her. Sometimes it is driven by triumph and other times, painful insecurity. Either way, the result is a more beautiful world. I highly respect her bravery as well as her talent.

America's Favorite Pastime

William Emmert combines baseball with my favorite pastime (doodling) to create 2.5"x3.5" little masterpiece collages. He overlays old baseball trading cards with ink, paint and random strips of paper, making the end result so strikingly colorful and bold that I can't resist loving them all.

The Wonderful World of Amelie Labarthe

From the moment that I met Amelie in 2008 and saw her work, I knew I was hooked. Her whimsical and playful approach to her art and her life is endlessly inspiring. I was first introduced to her as my tutor from Central Saint Martins, where she always guided us to draw and doodle away because any doodle can become something so much more she would always say.

Her sketchbooks always amaze me because they are so filled with nostalgia, amazing colors, mixed materials and textures. Her brilliant doodles seem to glide right from her mind to the pages of these fun filled books. I really felt a strong connection to her work from the get go, a lover and collector of vintage toys, a textile artist, and oh so much more... meet Amelie Labarthe

Cover Stars

I love the aesthetic of the homemade - the scratchy, do-it-yourself, oddball outsider stuff and I've been wondering why? Is it the feeling of honesty - that it's more human - it's attainable - spontaneous?

I'm a massive fan of lo-fi music and associated art... if I saw a record with a hand-drawn cover, 9 times out of 10 I could be sure it would be my thing. Looking at the artwork of these gems now - they haven't dated - they're timeless - as fresh today as they were 15 years ago and I've realized how much my creative output owes a great debt to the look of these classics bits of vinyl.

I'd love to see your favorite drawn covers - the ones that mean something to you (I can't get enough!) :)
