Take Me With You

Last week I took my little brother to the movies to see Iron Man 2. He's only five, so he's growing so much every day. During the big fight scene, he pulled at my arm and (speaking some with his little open mouth, but mostly with his huge blue eyes), whispered something like "Lisa, I am so glad this is not in 3D".

That's something that happened last week. And as much as the moment fills me up, I know the specialness of it doesn't read so good to a third person. So when I crawl into the comic drawings of Aidan Koch, I wonder how he does it.

I wonder how he can take something as elusive as a moment, and neatly wrap it up in a page of loose, inky marks and quiet grey lines. Is there a secret technique to not just show someone what happened, but pull them into it with you?

I'll leave my thoughts in the comments, because they'll be as good as yours....

Lots of Black

I've been so busy the last few weeks that I've barely had time to breathe. From moving to last-minute trips and trying to keep up with my own personal work, I've been a bit nonexistent on DA. But here's something to make up for the lost time. You'll be impressed.

A few weeks ago, I purchased "Elephant," a truly wonderfully crafted art and visual culture magazine from the U.K. (Really, there's no competition so run out and get it!) In it, I found the work of Bruno 9li. His work is intense, to say the least, and it is evident he lives in his own world, a bold and beautiful one. I would love to get lost in that world even though I'd be a little afraid. I'd walk around with one eye closed the whole time, but with a humongous smile on my face.

No Whitespace

The moleskine pages from Maykel Nunes are consumed with doodles from corner to corner. The ink literally bleeds to the end of each spread and the content completely differs on every page turn.

The presentation of the work is simply wonderful too, as the context of each photo; from coffee beans to playing cards, make for great backdrops. Well done Maykel. See some selects

Monochrome

There is no doubt that I love color. Just take a look around this website. It's filled to the brim with drawings using every color we can get our hands on. But there is something I find so damn powerful about an artist that can use one color to express what hundreds cannot.

And personally, I've always just picked up my favorite black pen and doodled my way through pages of scrap paper just because I found the effort to use color such a distraction. So it's true, I am biased. Here is a small collection of one-color drawings that have recently caught my attention.

America's Favorite Pastime

William Emmert combines baseball with my favorite pastime (doodling) to create 2.5"x3.5" little masterpiece collages. He overlays old baseball trading cards with ink, paint and random strips of paper, making the end result so strikingly colorful and bold that I can't resist loving them all.

Get Technical

I, for one, am impatient and always in awe of those who have the ability to add endless amounts of beautiful detailing into a drawing. Check out the work of Oliver Van Der Lugt. He even uses nail polish as one of his tools.

I Melt With You

I got lost in Laura Addari's art today. Her flickr and her blog.
