Intricate Drawings on Wood

I was immediately drawn to Camellie's handmade drawings on wood. Originally from Romania, now living and working in the UK, Cami's aesthetic pulls hard. Her intricate ink on white acrylic complements the texture of the wood. The grain patterns, rough edges, and fibrous composition of bark frames her starkly beautiful illustrations, and the contrast is just plain lovely.

Greg's Friday Links

I've seen Okat post a "Links Friday" on DA in the past, so I thought I'd put together some stuff I've found to be very helpful over the years. Some of these have been floating around the internet for a bit, so my apologies if you've already seen them (I threw in some newer stuff as well). Hopefully there is something here that will inspire you and your work.

Watch legendary graphic designer Milton Glaser talk about the fear of failure and how it relates to the life of an artist (I try to watch this about once a month). Some process advice and thoughts on idea generation from illustrators Jillian Tamaki and Nate Williams. For the digital doodler, amazing photoshop brushes available for purchase from Kyle T. Webster and Ray Frenden. Josef Albers's Interaction of Color is now an interactive iPad app. Learn about The Tools Artists Use. The latest issue of art magazine Kingbrown is out now and available for purchase here. I'm a big fan of illustrator Sam Weber's podcast Your Dreams My Nightmares. And finally, an old interview with a young Maurice Sendak in his New York studio.

The Pen Mover

I discovered Rod MacGregor's work yesterday on our DA flickr group. It's a great mix of comical characters and silly captions, drawn with sketchy black lines in pen and ink. These are some of my favorites of his. Enjoy more over at his blog.

Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway

Adrienne Vita's ink, watercolor, acrylic and gouache illustrations capture and promote everything good and true -- coexistence, wanderlust, individuality, friendship and family. Her beautiful menagerie of wild animals are seeped in color and pattern-- they're warm and bright and comforting in image and message. Adrienne says each piece comes from her intuition and meditations. Viewers can't help but become admirers, and admirers can't help but feel a sense of peace. Thank you to UncommonGoods for making the acquaintance.

Drawn Tattoos

The lovely and incredibly talented Wendy MacNaughton has been illustrating tattoos (and the stories behind them) for the tumblr blog; Pen & Ink, and now (deservedly so) she is turning it into a book.

Wendy and her Pen & Ink collaborator Isaac Fitzgerald are in the final stretch of putting it all together, but not before reaching out to me with a last-minute call for submissions. Do you have a tattoo with a compelling story behind it? If so, they want it, and they want it now. Take a pic of your tattoo, write a few words with its story and send it to: penandinkproject {at} gmail {dot } com

Raffaele's Bafefit's biography describes the creatures in his portraits as "characters caught in between the thin line between life and death." This ceaseless purgatory, where even the smoothest of curves feel as sharp as Fugubiki knives, binds the personalities of each piece in a state of agony. And although you might not hear their caterwaul, you can certainly feel their desperation.

An Illustrated Life

Aitch, an illustrator from Bucharest (suddenly I realize that I've recently only been talking about female artists)… describes her work as "ranges from pink, cute, elegant, to sometimes creepy, semi religious, bizarre characters, mixed in surrealistic sets" and I can't agree more. It's amazing how she moves from the "cute & pink" to the "surreal & semi-religious".

She normally works on paper, toys, urban objects, and many shops around Europe. She's one of my latest discoveries (and one of my favourites!).

I follow her on Facebook where the talks about her illustrated life.
