Type & Time: Drawn Typewriters



The sound is seductive: typebars striking ink ribbon; the bell of the carriage return swinging left. In my selective nostalgia, typewriters were never used by anyone except authors - typing stoically in a room with light filtered through plantation shutters, in the company of scotch glasses and a wastebasket of crumpled pages.The typewriter embodies a writing process that is hard and stark and dirty and mechanical. Itís a symbol of the beauty of process, the struggle of wordsmithing. And so my love for the typewriter is also a love for its aesthetic. I am giddy for illustrations of vintage typewriters, drawings where you can almost smell time and dust preserved. Here are some of my favorites.

Drawing the Cityscape in His Head



Bricks, windows, arches, curves, angles, roofs... you name it, if it's part of the city architecture, it's very likely Daniel Van Der Noon has drawn it.

Everything about his art inspires me. They are all hand-drawn and inked directly onto a wall, window, or canvas. No prior sketching or mapping. It's just one stroke here, another line there and soon enough buildings and rooftops appear.

In his own words, "I like to travel a lot, visit new cities, see new places, hear new noises. Through these skylines I guess that the perks that I experience from traveling around are amplified in ink, and the memories recorded in these ongoing sprawls of images and text."

You'll find plenty to like in the following images, and I guarantee you'll especially enjoy the process videos after the fold.

Drawings to Make Your Crush Giggle



Are you not so smooth with the ladies? Does your mind blank out around cute guys? A Daily Pickup Line could turn your luck around. It's an illustrated collection by Alyssa Duhe of the funniest flirtations, with some of the classics that don't get old and also a ton of original jokes that your crush hasn't heard a million times already. We originally picked this blog out from our followers on tumblr to be the next Tumblr of the Week, but couldn't pass up the chance to help out those in need on Valentines Day. Plus, I wanna hear your favorite pickup line in the comments.

Journey of a Tiny Explorer



Umbra is a hand drawn animation, a mix of drawing and pastel, that I came across about a year ago. It is still one of my favorites. Simple drawings with such a huge impact. The animation conveys such great emotion. I must have watched this a million times. I have a little folder in my bookmarks for links to watch when feeling a little in the dumps creatively. This video is at the top of the list. I hope you love it as much as I do.

Drawn Wallpapers for the Digital Age:
Art by Edau, #9

Edau is a Miami-based illustration rockstar. I've had the privilege to work with him side-by-side for almost two years, which has been the catalyst to both interesting and heated conversations. And with the upcoming December onslaught of endless art exhibits in Miami, it couldn't be a more perfect time to make Edau's An Art Show compilation of characters our next wallpaper.
