Sex, Comedy and Animals

I just got inspired by looking at my amazing friends' blog (If you're hungry for inspiration on this lazy sunday, check out Wunderkabinett). Thanks to their blog, I discovered the beautiful art of Kelsey Brookes and am now one of his biggest fans.

Kelsey is a former biochemist who lives by the beach in San Diego. Lucky man. And he attributes his raw art style to an education system that "refuses to teach scientists to draw."

If you like loud, colorful, abstract, and just plain jaw-dropping good art, you've come to the right place. Here it is. The ingenious talent that is Kelsey Brookes.

Yelp Yack

I think it's safe to say that as artists we are always looking for a reason to draw -- something that will inspire us to take pencil to paper and draw on the mockingly bright white sheet. San Francisco based artist Jessica Wassil found it in the brutally real and often obnoxious voices of anonymous Yelp reviewers. She makes colorful drawings of the original review and rating and posts them to her blog weekly. After visiting Yelp Yack, you'll never read another review the same way.

Time Moves Faster

I have to apologize for the lack of updates on my part. When they say that NY moves fast, I had no idea they actually meant it. Work has been keeping me extra busy and I have also decided to go back to school at night. My love for DA, however, still runs deep, and to prove it, I have decided to share the pages of my sketchbook. I carry it in my purse at all times and it is slowly falling apart. But I am especially fond of this sketchbook because I have always wanted a red one (it's the little things that count).

The pages inside are a mix of brainstorming session notes, random thoughts, ripped scraps of paper and color. It's a little bit messy. It's a little bit playful. And I like to think that it's a little bit like its maker.

Gone Forever

I love this photo. I love it more and more each day and I can't say it's any one thing. The composition of everything makes it like the trip of a lifetime is about to begin. It's the distressed suitcase for sure, no, no I think it's probably the colors and expression of the drawn character. Ahh hell, I even like the tiled sized squares she's standing on and the style of denim and sneakers. It's the work of Amaia Arrazola, who's blog I just spent thirty-five minutes on. I can't remember the last time I did that.

I've learned this about her: she likes to draw on most anything, from aprons to brown paper bags and she's delightfully good at it. Click here and you'll see what I mean.

Finger People Among Others

There's something really fantastic happening with Tania Toronja's drawings. You might be more familiar with her flickr name, visamexicana. Either way, her work is mesmerizing. It's a little creepy at first glance but her use of vibrant colors and shapes take it to a very fun, playful level. Take a look. You won't get scared, I promise.

Wonderland

Some will argue that children are the ultimate doodlers. They are uninhibited by the world around them and their imagination runs amok with unrelenting ease. As adults we often wonder how the imagery of children doodles would look like if it were the real world.

Korean artist Yeondoo Jung took on that challenge. He hand-picked a select number of colored drawings from 5-7 year old children and transposed them into real-world scenes. The end result is "Wonderland", a collection of photographs that are mesmerizing and sometimes even intense.

If we all lived in a world doodled by children as portrayed by Mr. Jung, our lives would be a colorful and poetic place.

Just Do Do Do.

Let's all take a moment to fall in love with the work of Christopher Holloran. He is an English man based in Amsterdam and he is so good, he gives me the heebie-jeebies. He likes to imagine "things are not as they seem." Well, I would like to imagine things as they seem in his mind.
