Rooting Yourself - Part Girl, Part Plant Doodles

Leaves haven’t started turning orange yet where I am, but the seasonal change in the air has me filled with anticipation for it. It’s a fitting time for me to come across Mali Fischer’s artwork. Her plant-girls exude a gentle sense of calm that I can’t help sinking into. Through muted coloring and therapeutic repetition of lines and patterns, Fischer pens surreal images of gentleness and dream-like serenity. On pages with bare backgrounds, the focus never leaves the lonely girls and their leaves.

Unsettling Black And White Dreamscapes

There are two types of reactions to seeing the grotesque: turning away or moving in closer. I am the second type, which is why I’ve spent so much time staring at Nicole Sofia’s illustrations. Bold and delicate shading coexist skillfully in this Argentinian artist’s warped dreamscapes. Versatile lines create a sense of gesture and motion overflowing with a raw sensuality that unsettles you with its fleshy, malformed anatomy. Manifestations of bodily insecurities, perhaps. If you follow Sofia’s linework closely you can appreciate what unusual paths the pencil took to create her own version of human(ish) forms in darkly oneiric settings.

Logging On: The Unconventional Lumberfolk of Jay Dart

No two beards are drawn the same in the illustrations of Jay Dart. He is a Canadian artist whose drawings give us a peek of men at work in the wilderness with bright beards and magical tools. Explosions of color in the snowy white landscape of Dart’s imagined world create a sense of fun, friendship, and magic in the middle of nowhere. A childlike whimsy in the colors and patterns contrasts playfully with the hardened austere stereotype we have come to expect from bearded manly men. Dart’s unconventional lumberfolk exist in a frosty place where work is play and the natural overlaps with the magical.

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.

The Fantastical and Imaginary

One look and I was immediately drawn into the fantastical and surreal world of Estela Cuadro's artwork. Her paintings seem as ink stains caught in a dreamlike state, very often the backdrop to fictional characters, animals, and plants. As she explains (in an interview over at Something You Said), "I like that my art is not exactly real, belonging completely to imaginary worlds ... I think that much of my time is spent connected to my unconscious."

An Illustrated Life

Aitch, an illustrator from Bucharest (suddenly I realize that I've recently only been talking about female artists)… describes her work as "ranges from pink, cute, elegant, to sometimes creepy, semi religious, bizarre characters, mixed in surrealistic sets" and I can't agree more. It's amazing how she moves from the "cute & pink" to the "surreal & semi-religious".

She normally works on paper, toys, urban objects, and many shops around Europe. She's one of my latest discoveries (and one of my favourites!).

I follow her on Facebook where the talks about her illustrated life.

Member Spotlight: Alice Savage

I discovered Alice's work during our Doodlebomb open call. Her submission transformed a fashion model into a surreal creature standing against tentacles and stars.

It was subtle and delicate, but it definitely caught my attention. As did the rest of her sketchbook, where there's lots of flowing long hair, female bodies and sometimes even a hint of watercolor. She lives on flickr and Welcome to DA, Alice.
