It's National WHAT Day?

Did you know that April 14th was National High As You Can Reach Day? I can't believe I forgot, but hopefully I accidentally celebrated by reaching up at some point. I'll never miss an obscure holiday again now that I follow National What Day, a recently formed blog with a catchy idea. Last month, Thoka Maer moved from Berlin to New York and dove straight into appreciating American culture by doing something special for all of the national appreciation days. She posts almost-daily animated pencil drawings relevant to which National _____ Day it is. Whether it's pennies, pencils, or specific foods—I'm excited to see Maer's daily reminders to celebrate the little things!

Inner Thoughts In Neon Pencil

Something eerie is happening. Ines Jakovljević's drawings are intensely personal and yet creepily inhuman. There's elements of biology textbook illustrations gone wrong, or gross-looking creatures found in the black depths of the sea. Enigmatic phrases are incorporated into the pictures, most of which sound to me like those nasty inner thoughts whispered to yourself in your head. These drawings have a bewitchingly sweet palette of vibrant neon and pastel colors, an unexpected choice for the gory visual details. I've been hooked and keep on diving deeper into Ines' color penciled inner world.

Drawing Across Used Journal Pages

A little bird told me about an upcoming exhibition in London featuring Fran Giffard's body of work that layers the wild over the domestic. After she filled up her personal moleskine journal with writing, Giffard did some repurposing and began to paint birds over all of its used pages with aquarelle, gouache, and graphite pencil. The result is a vivid safari adventure through an unexpectedly personal landscape.

While birdwatching, I caught sight of wedding dates, grocery lists, vacation plans, even diary entries. Weirdly intimate information about a stranger, which makes me feel like I’m flipping through something I know I shouldn’t be looking at. Sometimes the birds are painted alongside the text, carefully leaving the words unobscured. Other times, their plumage covers entire chunks of writing and I realize how nosy I am being trying to read someone else's journal. That's something you're not supposed to do, isn't it? Too bad, because I can't look away.

She's Out of This World

Incoming swarm of otherworldly girls heading our way! They come from another universe where everything is boldly colored, cats can live in their hair, and clothes are abstract. In Natalie Foss' alternate dimension of color pencils and quirky ladies, everything is simple except your face and hands. It gives me the impression that the girl's face is so captivating to me that I don't see the details of anything else around her. Natalie says she usually finds inspiration in people, music, animals, subcultures, feelings, fashion, thoughts and a good cup of coffee. Have fun spotting a little bit of everything on her website.

There's Something About These Drawn Girls

There's something about these girls. They are calm and composed, not a hair out of place-except sometimes their entire head is misplaced. These black and white scenes are drawn with only pencil and pen, always in a way that is strange and creepy without ever reaching gruesome. Her girls look so peaceful in their settings that it sometimes took me a moment to notice the one surreal detail that is off about the image. Visit Virginia Mori's blog to peak into more of her unsettling world.

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, it’s done with economy and intelligence."

There's A Heavy Weight On My Shoulders

When I look through our DA Flickr group, the work of Ann Pajuväli 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.
