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.

For more of Pencil Mountain, visit her Flickr!

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.

Strange Dreams

Few days ago I was in Ghent and among many nice people and new friends, I met Martha Verschaffel. Martha has strange dreams that she turns into short stories for her DIY zines. She gave me two of her zines and the day after I went to Paris. I don't know if it's because of this city or because of her stories, but now for two days in a row I have strange nightmares.

What a Beast

So while I was going through our DA archives, a very important question popped into my head. Why, oh why, have we not showed off the work of Sandra Dieckmann before? I have no friggin' idea.

To say that I love Sandra's work is an understatement. The colors, the UH-mazing detail in her pencil marks, it's pure greatness.

Sandra, let's be friends.

Good Bye Dinosaurs!

I love simple ideas with great effect. Well, dans le ciel tout va bien (in heaven everything is fine) made that great effect on me the other day when I found his post-it drawings, especially his "Good bye dinosaurs!" series. His combination of strong, dramatic scenes with the fragility of little post-it papers made me remember something I heard a few years ago about how big formats are more intimate than the little ones, because your whole body can fit in them. It's a nice theory, but today, I prefer these post-its more.

One more thing: dans le ciel tout va bien will make a book out of his post-it collection for "fais le toi mÍme", a french festival of edition, music, etc. at Lille in September.
