Drawing On Location

Amara Strand is an interior designer and 3D artist who is determined not to lose touch with the non-digital side of her creativity. She carries her small sketchbook around Toronto, and brings a little piece of the local architecture and scenery home with her at the end of the day. Her almost pocket-sized urban sketches are made truly special by Strand’s warm watercolors. Strand said, “I love to see colourful watercolour running, seeing the lines go on my sketchbook and never knowing exactly how the sketch will turn out when it is done. This excites me.” 

I adore the spontaneity of an artist being surprised by her own finished product. The drawings have a rough sketch quality without meticulous detailing, but it’s a good thing to have when you are drawing places and things right in front of you—you won’t get so lost in perfecting the page that you forget to enjoy your cup of coffee.

Art: In Construction

I’m looking at my dream home! Noel Badges Pugh’s pen and watercolor houses become more breathtaking with every passing moment that your eyes linger on the page. Unsurprisingly, I enjoy the process photos more than the finished products. The artist pays meticulously close attention to drawing the finest architectural details, which are given captivating depth by rich color shading. It’s particularly interesting for me to see this juxtaposed with the “bare bones” version of the house in the same drawing. A nice visual reminder that amazing illustrations have simple beginnings.

Ola Szpunar: Summer Sunlight

I recently returned from a trip to Texas where the days were unexpectedly filled with clouds, rain, and chilly temperatures. When I saw Ola Szpunar's "Summer" series, the images matched what I had thought my trip would look like: scenes of warm, sun-drenched indoor and outdoor settings. You cannot feel any other season besides summer when observing these pictures, not only from the sunny glow emanating from each scene. I see myself as the girl standing near the sink in a bikini top and black pants, coming in from the pool to take a break from the sun.

I Tried to Draw You Last Night

Brandon Vosika's series "I Tried to Draw You Last Night" feels like a tribute to friendship. He's caught his friends in natural poses; the drawings feeling as easy and sincere as a friendship should be. It's not a simple task to draw people who are close to you – you want them to see the thought and care you put into making something just for them.

Brandon's technique and use of materials is another aspect of these pieces that caught my eye. He's painting with watercolor but not on watercolor paper, hence the uneven wrinkling of the paper. Brandon's rejection of "proper" materials enhances the casual nature of the pieces. I love his varying line weight in each of the drawings. Shapes and forms are suggested, lines trail off into nothing - these are truly sketches, but as personal pieces and as a body of work, they feel like more than an afterthought dashed off on a scrap piece of paper.

Tumblr of the Week: Oh, Rinji!

I came across a gorgeous blog filled with tons of drawings of these strange beings. They're drawn in ink and watercolor by an English teacher in Japan, who goes by ohrinji. I can't look away from the interesting color combinations, or the visually inventive characters and their surroundings. The color schemes, the contrast, the designs—I'm almost swooning.

A Watercolor Diary

I found Leslie Stein a few months ago through a series she posted on VICE called "Leslie's Diary Comics." Like the name suggests, it's about personal stories from her life told in a distinctive visual style. The heart of it is Leslie's personality, which comes across strongly in every comic and turns the stories about mundane little anecdotes into something surreal. The way her comics flow even mimics the haziness of recalling memories, since her minimal line work does not include any separation of panels to guide you from one moment to the next. It reads just like a stream of consciousness, following the flow of her colorfully lonely introspective moments. You can see what I mean below or on Leslie's blog.

Human + Nature

Flowers growing out of skin. A flock of birds fluttering out from someone’s mind. Curious bears crawling over a hoodie. These drawings are connected by the common theme of humans and nature being intimately close, sometimes inseparably intertwined. Tatiana Karpova takes inspiration from real life objects or beings to insert directly onto the paper in ink, pencil or watercolor, but the finished image is something dreamy and impossible. A perfect balance of influence from humans and nature coexisting on paper.
