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.

A prolific illustrator and graphic designer from Wroclaw, Poland, Gosia makes creating these delightful abstract illustrations look so fun and easy.

The Art of Taking Off Clothes

There are some pieces that even when they are complete, still look like works in progress. I LOVE IT. After all, that could probably apply to the majority of doodles.

Adara Sanchez Anguiana is a Spanish artist who has perfected the art of imperfection. If her illustrations looked any more "complete", I don't think they would have captured my attention as deeply. Her favorite subject is the human form and WOW is she good at making every pose and angle of it mesmerizing. My favorite is her Take Off Your Clothes series, there's something great about how she captures people just in the middle of a quick intimate motion.

June's Guest Contributor: Rik Catlow (aka rikcat)

I first discovered and wrote about Rik Catlow's drawings back in September of 2012, during a member spotlight on his "urban pop art" style. I've been following his updates ever since and his tricked-out collages just keep getting better.

It's my pleasure to introduce him as our guest contributor for the month of June. He'll be blogging alongside our usual team and highlighting artists and other visual finds that are sure to peak your interest.

In the meantime, be sure to check out his incredibly cool paint jobs on smashed aluminum cans. He's also got an Etsy shop filled with original handmade art and as an added bonus, we are giving away a Rik Catlow digital wallpaper that's hot off the presses for you to enjoy. Grrr!
