Animated GIFs Drawn with Pencil



Miranda Pfeiffer recently dropped me a line about her drawings and animated GIFs made with mechanical pencil. I like how she renders normal objects found in real life, but then adds a bit of quirkiness when going into her hand-drawn animations.

She really gets the process too, I love this description by her, "Because they are brief and only have a visual component, when a GIF is powerful, itís done with economy and intelligence." See more Ľ

There's A Heavy Weight On My Shoulders



When I look through our DA Flickr group, the work of Ann Pajuvšli always catches my attention. I can't help it, it's unique and modest. Something about the angle and crop of her drawings that really strike me with emotion. I especially love her collection of drawn people with stones for heads.

Wonderfully Charming Drawn GIFs



I've had this in my bookmarks to share for a while, and I truly regret not posting about it earlier. It's a beautiful collection of animated GIFs made with the soft lines from colored pencils. The clips themselves are these fantastically awkward loops of people doing common things. Check out the Tumblr site, I guarantee you'll fall for this project by Thoka Maer.

Member Spotlight:
Daniel Jamie Williams



All of the eyes in Daniel's drawn characters are deep, and almost completely lost in sadness. They're consistent throughout his work, holding your stare and carrying you from one piece to the next.

Click on through, there's a really great time-lapse video of Daniel working his watercolor pencils after the fold.

From Street to Cardboard

I am mesmerized by German street artist DOME's series on cardboard. He paints human bodies with eerie postures and proportions. The decaying canvas sets the mood for his stencil characters, who emit the sense that they are falling apart as well. His use of mixed media is also intriguing. The work above was made with acrylic, pencil, and espresso. Overall, it's gloomy, dingy, and endlessly fascinating.

From Belgium with Love

I recently found out that Kitty Crowther is from Belgium with a British father and Swedish mother. In fact, it was in Brussels where I first discovered one of her books, the one that shocked me most, "Petite home et dieu" (Little man and God).

What I like most from her is the lack of digital retouching, the spontaneous drawings, the feeling that she has done them very quickly (non-stop), and the way in which she uses colour, lights and blacks above all. I also like the fact that she uses colour pencils, it makes me think that someday when I get older, I could be like her.

Some issues or themes can be difficult for a kid to understand, but her subtlety makes it all very easy.

I hate that she doesn't have a website, because I couldn't find all the images that I wanted, but here are some.

Climbing Hand-Drawn Mountains

If you could have any super power, which one would you choose? How about the superpower to actually crawl inside a drawing and feel, breath, touch and stomp around in this hand-drawn fantasy land? How sweet would that be.

To all you genies and leprechauns out there... please hook me up! I'd really enjoy an afternoon stroll through these creamy pencil landscapes by Maria Gosselin. I'd bring a friend, too. Looks like it might get a bit wild in there.
