Drawing Across Used Journal Pages

A little bird told me about an upcoming exhibition in London featuring Fran Giffard's body of work that layers the wild over the domestic. After she filled up her personal moleskine journal with writing, Giffard did some repurposing and began to paint birds over all of its used pages with aquarelle, gouache, and graphite pencil. The result is a vivid safari adventure through an unexpectedly personal landscape.



While birdwatching, I caught sight of wedding dates, grocery lists, vacation plans, even diary entries. Weirdly intimate information about a stranger, which makes me feel like I’m flipping through something I know I shouldn’t be looking at. Sometimes the birds are painted alongside the text, carefully leaving the words unobscured. Other times, their plumage covers entire chunks of writing and I realize how nosy I am being trying to read someone else's journal. That's something you're not supposed to do, isn't it? Too bad, because I can't look away. See more »

Drawn Faces Under Construction

Looking at the lines of a tree can tell you a lot about its life, and the same could go for people. David Cristobal is a Spanish artist whose highly detailed wood people are worth checking out. These portraits are drawn realistically, yet the texture of the wood that they are built from makes it become a surreal experience. I almost want to stick my face right up close to their cracks and peak into what's on their inside. Is that creepy?

Seas of Graphite

Wherever the work of Melissa Castrillón may take us, we are never far from her delightfully rotund subjects. Melissa has a light hand that is slightly unsteady, which gives the feel that there is constant motion in her illustrations.

She’s able to translate many of her sketches into finished illustrations, which can be a hard middle ground to find - you want it to look finished, but still want to maintain the spontaneity and freshness that comes from sketching and creating on the fly. I think for Melissa, she’s able to communicate a sense of control (in her compositions, handling of graphite) yet with her mark-making still retain the qualities that make sketchbooks so wonderful.

Girls, Girls, Girls.

God knows I love a beautiful drawing. And the addition of watercolor gets me every time. The simple lines of graphite mixed with that unexpected, gentle but bold splash of color - it's flawless.

Check out Natalia Sanabria's amazing handiwork.
