It's Like Candy

Flipping through an illustration book I received in the mail today, the handy work of Hennie Haworth got me to stop flipping. And then I immediately googled her name. Hennie creates intricate illustrations with her own unique and personal touch. I feel like a kid again when I see her lines and colorful layered compositions. I want to touch them and put them in my mouth. No really, look at those marbles.

Cut It Out

I love the whole cut out, diorama look. It works so well in sketchbooks, journals as well as finished pieces. I found Steve Simpson's work in a 3x3 illustration annual. Then I hunted him down on the internet and saw his Absolut campaign. This is inspiring me to do a diorama illustration project. Oh for more time!

Colorblind

Nikki Farquharson is experimenting with colored pens and found imagery in a collection of illustrations she calls Mixed Media Girls. It's impossible to ignore the visual impact when you see her use of color, patterns and doodles.

Also check out the work she did for Missbehave Magazine in collaboration with photographer Brooke Nipar.

Found via Nophar (a DA Facebook fan). Thanks for the tip!

The HORROR of the BLANK!!!

I was recently contacted by The Art Bureau to do 10 pages in a zine/book featuring 10 other artists and myself. I excitedly accepted only to seize up in the idea stage for 3 straight weekends as life got in the way and the evil deadline came hurling toward me. Since I work full-time, those 3 weekends were much needed for my mental stability. This moment of insanity became the premise of my submission. Below are some teaser shots of the work which goes to press on March 7 and lands in my hands at a time to be decided by fate. I will announce this on my blog when it releases.

Sea Legs

Our good friends Josh and Colby, otherwise known as illustration team Jolby, are putting on a show of new works with photographer Ashley Forette at Together Gallery in Portland, Oregon. Opening reception is tomorrow night (February 25th), but the show is scheduled until March 20th and will explore the legends, mythology, and superstitions held by sailors of the 1800's through a mix of illustration and photography.

If you live anywhere near the City of Roses, get your butt over to the show. Above is a teaser of what you can expect and you could always take another glance of our feature on Jolby, which documented a week in their life.

'Till Death Do Us Part

Two completely different styles all under one roof. Get some love from Pete and Jo, whose website simply states: We are married and also we are illustrators!

Life Pushes Through the Cracks

I am drawn to art with passion. That is what grabs me about the illustrations of Tim Marrs. He transports us to an urban world that in many ways is full of chaos, brokenness and turbulence yet it is filled with rich layers of texture, color, and beauty. Tim's collage style is a turbulent mix of photos, sketches, doodles, hand lettering, graffiti, and paint strokes. What at first looks like chaos and disorder is really thoughtful, eye catching, well crafted design. I'm not sure if he would see himself as a doodler, but I love the way he draws and how those little sketchy doodles and loose hand lettering work so well in his finals.
