I love Morgan Blair. Pass it on.
Everything from her smudgy pencil marks to her hissing tiger drawings and animated gifs that are hurtful to the eyes (I bet she does it on purpose just to mess with you) - her work is the kind of work that lingers in your brain, forever and ever, and it's a problem.
A graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, she is living and working in Brooklyn, NY and her interests include trees, legos and making art forever.
For her feature, we wanted to take full advantage of her ridiculous doodling skills - the kind of ridiculous that makes you envious. We asked her a few questions and she answered using her habitual tools - paper, pencil, pen and color.
Take a look around, fall in love with Morgan and her scratch 'n' sniff art. If the scent doesn't do you in, the art will.
Q: Age? Location? Do a self-portrait.
Q: What did you do last night?
Q: As a child, what did you want to be?
Q: Can you show us your favorite drawing that you've ever made?
Q: Grab your cell phone. Call someone (preferably on speaker) and talk to them for as long as it takes for you to doodle something. Show us that doodle.
Q: What influences you?
(Old VHS tapes with insane beginner-digital graphics.)
Q: Draw your mode of transportation (make/model and all the good stuff).
Q: What's your favorite thing/place on earth?
Q: Draw your workspace.
And that's not all, gang. Morgan took a break from her road trips and adventures to also share with us highlights of some of her more recent work and works-in-progress.
Detail of in-progress cover for Shane Jones' next book.
My hand after air-brushing some plastic at Aurora Robson's studio where I've been working.
Detail of a house painting I'm either still working on or just finished.
Same, different house.
Detail from the in-progress stage of a painting I finished a month ago or so. It is a pyramid receding into a field of pixels.
