ELBOW-TOE is the mad scientist of street art. His work is eclectic and ever evolving with content grounded in myth, symbolism and poetry.
I have always been fascinated by the direction of his art in the public spaces of Brooklyn and was therefore happy to learn that he carries a sketchbook with him on the subways of New York city.
Matteo comes to us from the land of Northern Italy, where his mind seems to wander endlessly over the pages of his Moleskine notebook. We are featuring an unprecedented 32 images for his feature, showcasing a diverse set of Matteo's work with his obvious consistent style. My personal favorite seem to be the pages that have an almost infinite landscape of faces and characters. View the feature now!
According to CNN's countdown to the election: (as of this post) we are exactly 12 days, 7 hours and 8 minutes from going to the polls. Chris Piascik doodles every day, but lately his Moleskine is filled with page after page of political observations done in beautiful hand-drawn typography. I have to admit that even my own doodles (usually random thoughts, like daydreams that make no sense) have been clouded by the 2008 election.
For Chris' feature, I had to stop myself from wanting to showcase his more familiar work (art unrelated to politics) of beautiful paintings, gocco prints and daily drawings, so that I could focus your attention on a set of images that speaks the real truth about his work: he can even make the words "Sarah Palin is trash(y)" look good.
