Extraordinary Illustrations on Ordinary Objects

We know these aren't exactly doodles, but the illustrated sculptures of French artist Gilbert Legrand are too fun not to share. He has been working in Toulouse for 20 whole years, dividing his time between designing characters and book covers, and using everyday household objects as the canvas for his illustrations. Legrand takes ordinary junk and transforms it into extraordinary characters by using a wide array of different materials like wire, wood, paint, and nails to defy your expectations. It takes an impressive imagination to look at stuff you use on a daily basis and still manage to draw some fresh, exciting inspiration from it. I stared at the above mouse for a while, so absorbed by the character illustrated that it took me a while to even figure out it was drawn on a hanger.



Many of his sculptures have a poetic, humorous twist to them, like the waiter made from a corkscrew who is carrying a bottle of wine on his tray or the lovers embracing on scissors. I had a lot of fun scrolling through his work and appreciating the way he can transform the most mundane objects into unexpected sources of delight.

Coloring Book Interview Series, #2: Cherry Wynn-Williams

It all started with a drawing of a typewriter. I first laid eyes on the work of Cherry Wynn-Williams when I opened up our Coloring Book Volume 3 and gasped at a funny little old-fashioned typewriter. She is an illustrator and world traveller, which I would have guessed even before I reached out to her because her portfolio is full of foreign street-sides, glimpses of exotic markets, and peeks into little alleys that exist somewhere across the world.

Tumblr of the Week: Skye Lane Art



Today my eye was caught by Skye Lane Art while browsing our tumblr followers. I was pulled into her world by objects layered over pages of her sketchbook and the jarring contrast between skritchy doodles over neat computer graphics. I liked that she explains her art is born from doodles she does in class while dealing with her anxieties. I can almost picture her sketching away in secret during a lecture...

Coloring Book Interview Series, #1: Kelsey Wroten

Kelsey Wroten is an art student and visual storyteller that we published through our open call for submissions and featured in our Coloring Book, Volume 3. Having seen none of her work outside the coloring book page before I looked her up, I was pleasantly surprised to find that Kelsey specializes in comics! I had to reach out to her for an interview so I could share her uncensored world of snappy dialogue and surreal situations with you.

Doodles + Transparency Sheets = MAGIC



Aug(De)Mented Reality is a fresh video that's recently been getting passed along the internet, and for hella good reasons. Hombre_McSteez combines traditional cell animation with still photography from his iPhone into one of the most captivating videos I've seen lately. It's always super cool to see 2D drawings roaming the 3D world, but seeing the real objects and landscapes responding to being played around with is what really makes this video come alive. We couldn't resist sharing something this perfectly executed.

Follow @Hombre_McSteez on Instagram to see more animations weekly!

Tumblr of the Week: Snippets




This is exactly the kind of thing I regret not doing for every trip I've been on. When I'm visiting other countries, everything seems like it's unforgettable, and that I'll remember it years to come. But beyond the most "noteworthy" attractions there are countless sights and moments that were so subtle, that after a few years most have slipped my mind like sand through my fingers.

Emma Sylvie's illustrated travel log puts so much emphasis on the small details that you wouldn't really know about if you didn't go there yourself, I almost feel as if I'm experiencing it with her. What stands out for me beyond the touristy things is the moments of people-watching. The best part is the way her drawings are narrated, so I can know what she felt in that moment and see the world exactly through her point of view.

Tumblr of the Week: Mr. Gentle



There's something slightly creepy about these drawings, but I can't quite put my finger on it (no pun intended). Maybe it's the Frankenstein-ish way the characters are composed with awkward and strange body parts that don't seem to belong together. Even so, they seem friendly enough to me. You might as well go visit this curious cast of creatures at Mr. Gentle's tumblr blog!
