Coloring Book Interview Series #5:
Ellen Leber



One of my favorite things about our coloring books is looking up the artist of a page I really like, because I usually end up falling straight down their rabbit hole. For example, Ellen Leber's atmospheric illustrations contain a depth that sucks me right into her world, especially since they are sometimes actually three dimensional.

Tell me more, Ellen...

Hi, How Are You



Today I want to introduce (to those who may not be acquainted) the art and music of Daniel Johnston. I was first introduced to his music and then subsequently his artwork when I was a teenager through the soundtrack to the movie KIDS. I immediately fell in love with his music and art. Later I moved to Austin, Texas a place where Daniel used to live. In the center of the city there is a big mural of one of his characters that is now iconic. A frog looking creature with snail like eyes that states Hi, How Are You. It now adorns t-shirts for the city of Austin and is almost like a mascot for the city. So you can kind of say he is a home town hero of mine.



A manic depressive and schizophrenic both his music and art are filled with emotion and with his work you get a direct look into his mind. His art is so pure and child like. Resonating with me in a way few artists have. One of my biggest influences and inspirations, his obvious passion and drive for his work are something that really struck a chord with me. I admire anyone with such drive. Despite any obstacles he has, he has been unrelenting in his pursuit and love of art. I hope you enjoy his music and artwork as much as I do and can draw inspiration from him. I highly advise checking out the documentary about his life The Devil and Daniel Johnston. Read on »

Milk-Eyed Mender

My talented friend Meera Lee Patel has a wonderful new show on right now at The Brooklyn Collective. The show is a series of watercolours inspired by Joanna Newsom's album, Mil-Eyed Mender.

Here's Meera explaining more about her show... "As I tend to do when a certain piece of music or art strikes my interest, I listened to the album exclusively while creating these works, replaying it about thirty times. These works are infused with Newsom's unusual understanding of the world and my desire to find beauty in everything around me -- in sadness, nature, among complicated and messy terrains."

The show will be hanging in Brooklyn until the end of November. The original pieces can be purchased by emailing Meera direct, and she'll have prints for sale in her Etsy shop.

Collaboration At Its Best



100 students drew the 3,000 frames for this video. The montage of starkly different styles, techniques, and visions mesh so beautifully, so compellingly. This is collaboration at its best. Sometimes 100 heads are better than 1. Sit back and enjoy.

Music = Art = Music

If you are like me you often create late into the night accompanied by music you can get lost in and let your hands go free. I think it would be impossible for me to create without these soundscapes becoming soundtracks to each line I draw, each thought I have, each revelation and with every finished creation.

Member Spotlight: Zoe Chantal

I haven't listened to Ladykillers by LUSH in over a decade, but as soon as I laid eyes on the women of Zoe Chantal the song immediately came to mind.

Graphite, gauche, watercolor, acrylic, pen, stencils, etchings; it seems her ladies are drawn with every possible medium and each with more drama and intensity than the next.

Zoe, we're glad you've joined DA. Your ladies are always welcome here.

Super Nature World

One of the many reasons why I wanted to come to Paris was to meet Kinrisu in person. I found out about her work two years ago when I saw her Myspace. The music was very lovely and she had this nice drawing for her profile picture. Then I found her blog with even more drawings, all of them done with a simple felt pen. So, yesterday we met and she gave me this really nice package with her album on a yellow cassette and a little zine that you can find on Papier Gache website. We planned to do an interview about her work, but the time was short. Well, if you listen to her music and follow her blog you will get a pretty good feeling of her work in general. Enjoy!
