The Many Faces of a Toilet Paper Roll

I only recently came to know Andrew Orlando. He stopped by our studio to drop off a drawn Doodle Addict Postcard and with him was a bright green tote bag. When I looked inside, dozens of faces stared back at me. I immediately lit up, the bag was filled with toilet paper rolls that he covered with bright and bold colors of paint and marker. Eyes, teeth, scribbled hair and so many expressions formed these comical characters. Over 30 rolls in hand and he told me he had tons more back home, I believe he said his goal was to reach one-thousand.

Ominous Characters

Sometimes you stumble upon work that's so mesmerizing it's difficult to explain. Benjamin Edmiston's pieces are that kind of work. And as I struggled to find the correct adjectives to describe them, I succumbed to the eloquent way as to which the artist did so himself.

Bejamin explains: "My compositions feature unusual or fantastical settings inhabited by ominous characters depicted in a flat and decorative style. My bold, and often symmetrical, drawings offer a plane of floating heads, half-skinned snakes, and bodiless arms. Building a personal vocabulary with such imagery recalls for me the tension of an early, crude Mickey Mouse cartoon, or a misplaced folk sculpture standing eerily on a dusty shelf. The creation of a familiar but askew world — the sensation of the unheimlich is what fuels my work."

Invented Stories

Illustrator extraordinaire Fernanda Guedes from São Paulo, Brazil has a flickr feed filled to the brim with eye candy, including our favorite series of hers, "People and Their Invented Histories."

In this set, she chooses a picture from Facehunter or The Sartorialist and fictionalizes a profile for the stranger in the photograph. The drawings and characters she develops seem to be fascinating people and it leaves me wondering if by some supernatural occurrence, the made-up story could have ever mirrored that person's reality.

Everyone Has A Story To Tell

After living in Vienna (counting 1.7 million people) for more than 10 years, A-FACE-A-DAY decided that it is time to present the beauty of Viennese and Austrian human beings to the world. I'm not sure if the captions of each person is real or imagined up by the illustrator himself, but they all tell an interesting story. It makes me want to know more about each and every one of these people. Check out the website to get acquainted with everyone.

Winning Drawings

A few weeks ago, we did a giveaway where I asked you guys to submit a quote that speaks of who you are. I picked two winners and drew them incorporating their quotes. Without further ado, I would like you to meet two friends of DA, Josh LaFayette and Ellie (aka comfits). Josh's "favorite hobby is breakfast." And Ellie is "like an octopus on roller skates."

Take a look at the process, from the initial pencil drawing to pen to watercolor and collage.

Josh and Ellie, check your mailboxes soon. I think I may now know your faces better than you do. :)

The Great Beard Adventure

Ever been engulfed with visual thoughts of beards with amorphous bodies, killer beards from outer space, or a large beard colony? I have and because of that I went scouring the internet to find others that may have encountered those same visions. I was not disappointed.

Get ready to embark on the Great Beard Adventure.

Member Spotlight: Jim Kaufmann

I was searching for something different today and I found it in the works of Jim Kaufmann. He's technically a writer, but claims to have found the visual arts again after a long hiatus.

We couldn't agree more. Jim's art is a mash-up of acrylics and intricate pen work, with a touch of cut-and-paste collage. So many attempt this style and fall short. Jim does not. His work looks improvised and accidental but it somehow all falls into place.
