James Roper: Double Exposure

James Roper has done a magnificent job in executing his goal in these graphite drawings. The description likens these portraits to headshots, "a must-have for any aspiring Hollywood actor" but the aim is to show the emotional depth of someone pursuing an acting career. Some may view this career path as a choice made by the vapid, the unrealistic, the dramatic and ridiculous. But my interpretation is that Roper shows how inaccurate this generalization can be by suggesting the form of a headshot with an unidentifiable pattern teeming beneath it, creating a double exposure effect.

Furthermore, this double exposure effect has beautiful results. The viewer is distracted by the intricacy and beauty of the pattern that they do not at first realize that the pattern is of nothing in particular. It has traces of architectural themes, feather-like line patterns, folds that could be fabric. We as viewers stare at the pattern, trying to find something that is, in fact, not there. It is ephemeral; it escapes us. It’s a reminder for us to stand back and enjoy the bigger picture.

Coloring Book Interview Series, #6: Polly Lindsay

The thing about finding artists from our coloring books is that you never know what to expect from seeing the one illustration they submitted to us. What I found when I looked up Polly Lindsay was quite a surprise. Her art is pretty out of the ordinary from what we normally post here, but I got a little crush on her unexpected style of cutting and layering paper.

Color Pens Gone Wild

Mossi's markers make quick, short strokes of color that run into each other to create random shapes (and sometimes faces) born from his subconscious. Look closely and you'll be staring into a trippy collection of intricate lines and patterns, making it impossible to follow, but easy to love.

Member Spotlight: Jess Worby

I love when drawings interweave, have depth and overlap all over eachother. It's like layers upon layers of scribbles that equal one incredible visual story. My gut tells me that more often than not, this end result is not planned, it just happens as a consequence to sketching in a sketchbook.

This is the work of Jess Worby, a recent member of DA that I just happened upon when browsing through some of the new member profiles. His work is exactly what I describe above, take a look for yourself and definitely welcome him to the site.
