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.

Take a Hike to Pencil Mountain

Jessie, AKA Pencil Mountain, has so many wonderful drawings that I had a hard time selecting what to feature. Her drawings have a range - some of them are straightforward interactions between characters, while others are less representational and focus on mark making.

With the scope of Jessieís work, there seems to be an overarching theme of demise. One person is sending another to the grave, and even some of the flora seem like itís wilting. My favorite part of her drawings are the skulls, gravestones (I think) that are peppered throughout her more abstracted works.

Skinny Dipping

Those long, limber bodies floating in black pencil - so beautiful. Move your nose in close to the screen, so you can notice the details. See that lady gently reach out for the ankles of another swimmer? Maybe she'd like to just hold on, close her eyes for a bit, feel the water rush past every inch of her skin. Gosh I'd love some warm ocean and a deserted beach right now!

This is my favourite drawing by Laura Geurten but she has other lovely pictures that deserve a peek, too.

This Precious Thing In My Clumsy Hands

The online world can be exhaustingly fast-paced. Like BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM! It's my own doing though. I tend to have fifty-million tabs open at a time. If something catches my eye it will get a quick OH!COOL! LIKE! before I flip to the next shiny thing.

But every now and then, I'm stumped. A drawing finds its way into my online-hands and everything else goes hush. It's like being a kid at the beach and finding a tiny shell that feels like treasure in my clumsy hands. There's a million other identical shells along the water, but this particular one is the one that I want to take home and keep in a jar next to my bed... although I can't explain why I chose it. Or did it choose me?

Anyhow. That's what happened when I found this owl drawing by the Orka Collective. I had to pick it up and hold it in my clumsy online-hands for a while.

An Illustrated Daily Life

Let's begin the week with an incredible artist who loves to create spontaneous drawings with color pencils. Nayoun Kim was born in Seoul, South Korea. After graduating from University (majoring in Fine Art) she moved to Toronto where she became an illustration student at Sheridan College in Oakville.

She enjoys to draw her daily life, also, she likes to capture her feelings at the moment as much as possible. She tends to draw very quickly with pencils and color pencils and always carries a sketchbook so she can draw wherever and whenever she wants. Nayoun wants people to feel happy through her work.

To enjoy her magical drawings, visiting her blog.
