Ever feel homesick for a place you're not even from? I never visited Jerusalem, but these drawings feel like old memories of somewhere I haven't been yet. The artist is Vincent Mahé, a Parisian who spent a year in Jerusalem and brought it back with him in a sketchbook. His sketches include the big touristy sites everyone knows, but also the empty streetsides and tops of buildings that you don't normally see in photos. There's something captivating about the simple lines—-the way he creates shadows with them, the way the drawing seamlessly becomes less detailed the further away from the focus point.Read More »
Long-time friends, Nophar Haimovitz (fashion/jewelry designer) and Hodaya Louis (fashion illustrator) have collaborated for the image launch of Reason To Be Pretty's latest collection of jewelry, and it's a match made in heaven.
Their styles blend perfectly, take a closer look and you'll notice how subtle and elegant Hodaya's illustrated women wear the photographed jewelry of Nophar's designs. It's so great to see two different forms of art come together like this.
I want to introduce you to one of my favorite illustration projects of late. It comes to us from Israeli artist, Geffen Refaeli. The concept is incredibly simple, and the result, flawless.
What started as a personal experiment to practice drawing and doodling has turned into a daily art project with over 20,000 followers (in under a year). Every day, Geffen uploads an illustration that was inspired by a mashup of her friends photographs. She takes bits and pieces from their pictures and creates one-color, surreal drawings. She then posts the drawings on Instagram (@dailydoodlegram) with links to the photo feeds that prompted it all to begin with.
I'm a fan, and I'd gamble to say so will you be. Prints are available at her recently launched shop.
