Giveaway: Nature Anatomy by Julia Rothman

If you don't know the work of Julia Rothman, you better get to it. I've been a fan of her work for as long as I can remember, from her lovely hand-drawn patterns to her sketchbook pages of intricate drawn buildings. She's also authored and illustrated some of my favorite books, like Drawn In and Hello NY. And now she's released another book to rival all the others.

Nature Anatomy is 224 pages of hand-drawn goodness and features tons of drawings, diagrams, and dissections from the natural world. Julia takes us on a visual tour of trees, birds, insects, animals, wildflowers, ecosystems, and so much more.

You'll want this book and we've got one to giveaway. To be in the running, just leave a comment on this blog post with your single favorite thing to draw from nature. We'll pick a random winner from the hat. Comments close July 6th (Monday) at 11am Eastern. Good luck everyone... and for those of you that can't wait, you can get your hands on the book today on Amazon.

UPDATE: We have a winner! We randomly pulled a name from the hat and... congrats to Catharine Mi-Sook! Your copy of the book will be mailed out this week. Enjoy and thank you all for participating.

Sketchcraft

Crystal balls, ouija, magic circles… Is this a sketchbook or a spellbook? Emma Black pulls art and occult together in a hypnotic style. There’s something in the cryptic imagery that makes it come off more spiritual than spooky. Again and again I find myself mesmerized by her ritualistic repetition of geometric patterns and shading in thin, straight lines. Her series of animal sketches has the same magical undertones, where in pencil she draws the natural, then adds an element of the unnatural in red. It’s a compelling sketch style that’s simplistic and mystic. 

You can follow Emma Black on instagram to keep up with her witchy business.

Little Boxes on the Hillside

I've been casually admiring some quaint little towns I wish I could live in. Any one of these houses nestled tightly amongst trees and other homes looks perfectly cozy for me. I associate drawings of buildings squashed together with the bustle of cities, so it's unusual for me to be looking at these homes practically smothered with no room between them and yet feel the opposite of city life. It's probably Samantha Dolan's intricate details on the leaves doing the trick. Her patterns are obsessive and consume the image until there is nowhere left unfilled. Still, there's something tranquil that comes from following the repetition of familiar shapes.

Human + Nature

Flowers growing out of skin. A flock of birds fluttering out from someone’s mind. Curious bears crawling over a hoodie. These drawings are connected by the common theme of humans and nature being intimately close, sometimes inseparably intertwined. Tatiana Karpova takes inspiration from real life objects or beings to insert directly onto the paper in ink, pencil or watercolor, but the finished image is something dreamy and impossible. A perfect balance of influence from humans and nature coexisting on paper.

In the Warm Shadow of Nature

Gentle drawings by Cendrine Rovini take me back to the woods that I frequently visited when I was little.

Again I can sense the same essence of warm plants and trees that surrounded me back then. I like to imagine that Cendrine's sheets of paper have that same aroma. It's like her drawings manage to soak in to the paper and make it smell so natural that you can feel they are back with nature again.
