Cultivate Our Garden





Editor's note: This entry is brought to you by our good friend and scribbler, Lisa Currie, who is also the author of two really awesome doodle books, The Scribble Diary and her latest, Me, You, Us.

Today I'm excited to share this bright, happy, hand-painted (!!) interview with artist Rebecca Volynsky. I asked her a few simple questions (via the above prompts) about her creative life right now, and she let her paintbrush do the talking.

How luscious are these two pages filled with bright plants and golden waves and endless coffee cups! It's like we all get a bouquet of wild flowers delivered to our desktops today. Hand-painted, of course. Thanks Rebecca!

Her Life with a Little Bit of Fiction



Paintings, drawings, words. All of it. I'm in love with Herikita's art. It speaks truths in soft colors and is quite often made-up of angled homes and rooftops, pets and insects, women and men, all of whom are sharing their awkward feelings and I just want more and more of it.

Her bio alone was enough to make me smile. Here's a small bit of my favorite part, "I work at midnight like Cinderella’s mice, almost always, when everyone is sleeping and something pops up in my mind.."

It's such a great visual.

The Fantastical and Imaginary





One look and I was immediately drawn into the fantastical and surreal world of Estela Cuadro's artwork. Her paintings seem as ink stains caught in a dreamlike state, very often the backdrop to fictional characters, animals, and plants. As she explains (in an interview over at Something You Said), "I like that my art is not exactly real, belonging completely to imaginary worlds ... I think that much of my time is spent connected to my unconscious." See more »

Peculiar Little Paintings





Angela Dalinger's work is, well, odd. Characteristically so. The subject matter, which can be violent, morose or sexually-charged, conflicts with her two-dimensional, rudimentary, colorful style-- leaving me feeling somewhat peculiar about the whole thing, and at the same time drawn to the idiosyncrasies. In true art brut form, her work seems intentionally unintentional and subversive. I'm left wanting an explanation I know I'll never get. Or maybe I've overthought the whole damn thing and she's just painting pretty little pictures in a quiet 100-person town bordering a forest.

The Art of Homeless Cop



I came across Homeless Cop through a friend on Facebook. He introduced us and I was a fan right out the gate. At first glance I thought his works were all vector illustrations but as it turns out they are actually oil paintings! The lines are so crisp and clean and the colors so amazing and bold. I was insanely impressed with his work. I caught up with him recently and asked him a few questions. I hope you all enjoy! Read the full interview »

Getting Sacred with Adrian Landon Brooks

Adrian Landon Brooks is a Houston, Texas artist that I first came in contact with through graffiti art. We were both graffiti artists and had a lot of mutual friends. Many years later we were both living in Austin, Texas and this is when I became more acquainted with his non graffiti art. We exhibited together in a group exhibition and also collaborated on a mural. He often paints on found objects and draws on old photographs. I love his use of color and strong imagery often focused on the concept of a savior bringing in aspects of religious painting such as the use of halos. He says about this, "I am drawn to sacred art of all kinds, especially art that emphasizes a 'savior.' Finding my creative voice brought freedom and redemption from everything that ails me. When I am creating work, the outside world is on pause and I can completely let go of all the trials and tribulations of the day. I feel that this is represented in the iconic images I create and is my attempt at paying homage to something greater than myself."

Check out more of his work at AdrianLandonBrooks.com and @AdrianLandonBrooks on Instagram.

The Beautiful Creative Process
of David Engzell



Watch this video of David Engzell's process of creating. It will make you want to race home and draw over the largest sheet of anything that you can find. I've watched this in loop over nine times now. You should too.
