An Attempt to Draw Everything

James Gulliver Hancock, an illustrator from Australia (now living in New York), seems to be on a quest to draw and catalog almost everything that comes his way, from bicycles and snow to scooters and mountain tops. He's even launched a micro-site titled All The Buildings In New York, where you'll find them sorted by building type or borough.

I especially love the compositions where he stacks each of the elements onto one large sheet of paper. Here's hoping he keeps this effort going forever.

Dark Splendor

A tear-shaped mountainous road in which to travel and wondrous beasts to encounter. I can't help but dream of adventures in the drawn world of Niclas Boman's imagination.

Buried In The Attic

Two years ago I waved hello (cyber-wave that is) to Caroline Gaedechens and asked her to please send over a few sketchbook pages. Then somehow I forgot all about it... until today! Thank you Gmail unlimited storage, you da-best.

I've never had an attic in my house, but I imagine this is what it feels like to have a spring-clean and find a treasure. A gentle, quiet, hand-drawn treasure in the attic.

Mr (not so) Frivolous

As I mentioned in a previous post I love art that combines realistic portraits and crazy colour schemes, and the work of Mr Frivolous definitely hits the spot there. But the thing that really interests me about his work is the text. It's almost like a personal graffiti he adds to his drawings, in amongst all the quotes he adds to each piece you'll often find personal notes or declarations scribbled down. I love the piece that has a corner ripped off with a note saying "this bit was crap so I ripped it off" in its place.

In a world where so much art looks virtually the same, it's work that has little bits of personality like that bursting from it that really stands out. I check back in at his website regularly to see if he's added any new pieces, and since Santa Claus is richer than I am I've bookmarked a few of his original drawings for my Christmas wishlist.

One Dollar Hotdog

"Jubilant" is a word I’d use to describe the drawings of Andrew Neyer. The Ohio-based illustrator is a wearer of many hats (including being the Art Director and Head Curator at Yes), and one of them is an illustrator. "One dollar hotdog" refers to the title of Andrew’s blogger, which is aptly named. His work is so satisfying (like a one dollar hotdog) and feels inclusive and unpretentious (it’s not like we’re eating foie gras here).



I love his character design. It's sweet, but not saccharine. The proportions are elongated but don’t feel strange. Everyone has an equal chance at happiness, including people, pets, and electronic devices.

Can Someone Please Translate This For Me?

Guten Tag! Auf Wiedersehen! That's about as far as my German goes. If only my second-grade German teacher had forced a few more foreign words into my soft young brain. I mean, one day we all made pancakes in class... is that even a German thing? Hmmm.

It's lucky then that my favourite German comic artist Nadine Redlich speaks mostly in pictures! Her drawings are cute, a bit smutty, and only sometimes need a helpful whisper from Google translate. Also her chill new series of "ambient comics" are surprisingly nice to stare at for a while.

Genießen! (that means "enjoy" in German.... I think)

Girlie Pains

The thing I like most about Mel Stringer's sketchbooks is that they feel like peeking into someone's diary. A diary that's tucked away under a bed with a threatening note doodled on the cover and hearts on the spine. The kind of diary that only your best friend is allowed to look inside, while eating cereal, listening to mix tapes and giving each-other homemade tattoos…
