Tumblr of the Week: SASHALYNILLO's Continuous One-Line Drawings

"From this morning's train ride: Here's one long, continuous line drawing. It was hard to do when people sitting next to me were getting on and off at their stops."

That's a caption on one of SASHALYNILLO's drawings (shown above) that caught my attention. It was mind-blowing to find out that some of his sketches are drawn without lifting the pen from the paper until the picture is complete. An image of what appear to be train passengers that I would have rated as just 'pretty cool' seconds ago suddenly seemed extremely interesting and worth sharing right away. Here is another one-liner I felt similarly about.



I can imagine the zen-like process of trying this out, learning to go with the flow and not turn back to pick at details. It's a cool idea for doodlers to give a shot next time you're having artist's block. SASHALYNILLO is an artist based in the Bronx who thrives on sketching in moleskines. His pen sketches are simplistic and highly stylized at the same time, and usually based on images from daily life or political subjects. Here are some of my favorites from his doodles made on trains.

Dark, Moody, and Moving Drawings



When I stare long enough at a drawing I love, I start to imagine it moving. Nancy Liang is one step ahead, she has already done it for me. I’m lost in her mysteriously moody series of animated gifs. She makes tons of them! The balance between motion and stillness creates an atmosphere the way a single frame on its own wouldn’t. The swaying trees, shifting shadows, and blinking lights fit so naturally, I feel they’re something I would have envisioned anyway if I saw a still drawing of her lonely scenes. See more »

Craving a Hug Right Now



Mmm, that looks cozy. I found myself thinking that repeatedly while looking through this series of drawings. Each girl is wrapped up tight in an embrace with an animal friend or with herself. Even though there are cutesy elements to every sketch, they seem drowned out by a looming sense of loneliness. Who knew hugging animals in sweaters could be so gloomy?

Ani Castillo describes drawing as catching her anxieties like butterflies and pinning them down to a piece of paper so she can see them a little bit more clearly. I couldn't have said it more eloquently myself.

Heads Will Roll



I'm really enjoying the folksy art coming from Emmanuel Gutiérrez (aka EMMGUT) out of Costa Rica. His style feels familiar yet unique. I love how simple the drawings present in just black ink and then how they completely pop off the page when he adds the color and shading. His instagram feed is chock full of good stuff.
