An Incredible Book of Drawn Vintage Cars by Lapin

We've featured French artist Lapin many times here on DA. Every time I look at his work it inspires me to drop everything and sketch. You too will fall in love with the composition of his lines and the mass collection of sketchbooks he's filled from cover to cover (look for yourself).

So it's with great joy that I learned today that he plans on publishing a book (Oldies but Goldies) with his incredible collection of drawn vintage cars found on the streets. I'll say it again, these are not drawings he's making back in his studio with photo references. He literally stumbles across a car and can't imagine passing it without respecting its history, so he sits down right then and there and draws it.



In his own words: "I project the dim light of those years in my book through my drawings and try to tell you the beauty behind the wrinkles, the experiences behind the broken parts and memories behind their dust so that they will be immortal."

He's running a campaign to raise funds to print this fantastic book. Follow the link and support this project (by doing so you'll also secure yourself a copy).

The Space Between



This has been making its rounds on the web, but I just couldn't resist posting it too. It should not be missed. I've plenty talked about how much I love constraints, as they tend to be a great catalyst for ideas you might not have ever considered and this illustration project completely embraces that notion.

Thomas Lamadieu has been drawing in the space between buildings for his new series, SkyArt, and he's making us all look up again. Open spaces of blue sky replaced with drawn characters stuffed amongst the architecture. What's not to love?

Magic Monsters

I discovered Delphine Durand (and her entourage of weird animals) when she was teaching a workshop at Ilustratour. I couldn't go and was left with the desire. Since then, I follow her work from the distance.

I love her magic and bizarre animated monsters that walk around her drawings and on her books and travel journals.



And thanks to her, I know about "Les Cahiers de L'Articho", a French illustration magazine that's got me blown away. She also has an amazing pinterest page where she uploads everything she likes.

Colorific World!





Some time ago, I found Lili Scratchy, a french illustrator and ceramic artisan who's world never stops surprising me. Going into her sketchbooks is like figuring out how her mind is like: A whole lot of little speaking monsters, colours, fruits, letters and weird animals.

Don't forget to take a look at her ceramic work, it's pretty impressive.

She has a blog that updates quite often and a Flickr where you can find all her work.

8 Days in Paris

Some people take a camera to document their travels. My backpack, however, is filled with everything else but that - a sketchbook, a large pouch filled with micron pens, markers, glue sticks, white out, found pieces of paper, etc. I just came back from a week in Paris, a fantastic week of scootering around, (barely) speaking French, enjoying daily "café crèmes" and "pains au chocolat." Eight days in Paris and this is what I have to show for it.

Oh Em Gee

Frida Stenmark draws lots of different things, but it's when you see her drawn collection of personal things that you'll say, "oh mon dieu!" You'll find ink flasks, keys, her favorite books, a sewing kit and even some of her frilly panties. It prompts the voyeur in me to want to peek through her window and see all these tangible things strewn about her room. Take a look, you'll want to join me too.
