Lovely Lines

Clean and nice lines from Gwendoline Desnoyers take me back to simplicity of Giotto and Brueghel. She has manage to express so much with so little and her use of empty space is such a lovely thing to see. Using the same simple lines, Gwendoline also makes beautiful collages with a gentle use of colors – just enough to make you feel the elusive space around her characters and shapes. Now, take a look at this wonderful works and try not to like it.

She also has a nice blog where you can find even more amazing works from this young artist.

Lines and Halftones

She had me sold just by looking at her menu. Cut out letters and patterns - I'm in! And then I dug a little deeper and I was right. Her work is light and fun, with a mix of collage, images, and hand drawings in different inks. Indulge yourself in Dudu's vast collection of playful work.

Member Spotlight: Ed Milsom

Droog79 is the alter-ego of salty-faced Ed Milsom, who spews “brain ink over scarce supplies of paper” when he’s not falling off waves in southern Mexico.

Alluring work that captures the patterned chaos of the sea. Check out
his doodles and tshirt art on his flickr feed and blog. Righteous.

Showcase #2: Draw Your Line

We have another challenge for all of you and it comes with an excellent prize from the fine folks at Parka Blogs.

Draw it however you'd like: As drawn letters on a ripped page or as a doodled scene in your Moleskine. We encourage you to have fun and do your thing, just make sure to write out the title of the book and author somewhere in the drawing.

Good luck everyone, you have until next Wednesday at 11am Eastern to upload your submission. Read the complete guidelines and prize details here »

Member Spotlight: Matt Saunders

I don't know Matt Saunders (aka rabbit portal), but sometimes I feel like I do. I've been following him on twitter for months now and it's quite obvious how much passion and work he puts into his love of drawing. I really like that his lines are detailed and intricate and that there's an abundance of them.

Take the time to visit his flickr full of goodies, especially the animation stills, where he shows off his scribbles before they come to life.

Sunday Grins! with Mia Christopher

Yes, it's nice to find out how an illustrator got started or what tools they use. But if you'd really like to get to know a person, you should ask them this question...

When you press an unknown button, what do you hope it will do? Really, what do you hope will happen?

After you've had a think about that, take a peek at our new Q&A series - every Sunday, all hand drawn, and a little bit silly!

First up to be interviewed is the charming Mia Chirstopher. I like that her illustrations are simple and happy, like a child who's just discovered what a pencil can do. There's also something funny and curious going on behind the lines - something that I suspect could make a sterile gallery feel as comfortable as story time.

So Many Lines

Today's inspiration comes from Oatmeal's flickr because I absolutely love hand drawn hair. And lots of it. Zoom in »
