From Belgium with Love

I recently found out that Kitty Crowther is from Belgium with a British father and Swedish mother. In fact, it was in Brussels where I first discovered one of her books, the one that shocked me most, "Petite home et dieu" (Little man and God).

What I like most from her is the lack of digital retouching, the spontaneous drawings, the feeling that she has done them very quickly (non-stop), and the way in which she uses colour, lights and blacks above all. I also like the fact that she uses colour pencils, it makes me think that someday when I get older, I could be like her.

Some issues or themes can be difficult for a kid to understand, but her subtlety makes it all very easy.

I hate that she doesn't have a website, because I couldn't find all the images that I wanted, but here are some.

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!) :)
