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.

Simple Lines with Such Great Meaning

Art that sticks to the basics is often the most compelling. When I found these doodles by an illustration student named Laurel, I lost track of time and scrolled through months and months of drawings before I realized how deep I had gone. Many of her drawings are childlike, but each rough line was drawn with purpose. The best for me are her series of giant girls wandering the world, sitting on waterfalls and poking your house.

Coloring Book Interview Series, #14: Chucho Nieto

Coloring books are a personal, therapeutic experience for me. Sometimes I can spend an hour (or even longer) filling in just a single page, which gives me a lot of time to think about the illustration I'm spending my focus on. Unlike the average coloring book, the Doodlers Anonymous coloring books include a list of all the artists involved and where to find them. That's how I ended up asking Chucho Nieto a bunch of the odd little questions that spark while I'm coloring away!

It's National WHAT Day?


Did you know that April 14th was National High As You Can Reach Day? I can't believe I forgot, but hopefully I accidentally celebrated by reaching up at some point. I'll never miss an obscure holiday again now that I follow National What Day, a recently formed blog with a catchy idea. Last month, Thoka Maer moved from Berlin to New York and dove straight into appreciating American culture by doing something special for all of the national appreciation days. She posts almost-daily animated pencil drawings relevant to which National _____ Day it is. Whether it's pennies, pencils, or specific foods—I'm excited to see Maer's daily reminders to celebrate the little things!

Kate Gavino's Drawings of Readings

Quotes are a powerful force. Reading the right ones can change your entire perspective on life, love, and other big deals. Weird to think that a few words can have that effect! Kate Gavino is a New Yorker who goes to book readings regularly, and isn’t satisfied with just tweeting a good quote when she hears it. In her prolific Last Night’s Reading series, she sketches portraits of the authors while she is at their reading, alongside a favorite quote from the night. It’s the perfect marriage of her passions for art literature! So many of these are inspiring and thought-provoking… I think I’ve just been convinced to start checking out book readings around me.

Pop Up Art

This sketchbook is so action-packed that some of the pages are literally popping out at me! Dominic Damien uses inventive combinations of ink, pencil, watercolor and acrylic meshed with comic book clippings. These elements of collage are so deftly integrated into Damien’s bold, striking art style that at first I did not realize they weren’t drawn in. Photos of his expansive moleskine art also include helpful closeups that bring a microscope up to the best details and textures that you miss while looking at the big picture.

April Spooks

I never wait until October to enjoy a good dose of spooky. This Italian artist's sketchbook is a small town of goofy monsters, all drawn in sepia pen. The bizarre creatures Paride Bertolin dreams up are scary in design, but the darkness became lighthearted after I noticed their awkward and playful expressions. I find it so endearing to see them looking gawky and stiff, like nervous new acquaintances or someone who hates having their picture taken. If the quirky and the macabre are right up your alley, go look at Bertolin’s sketchbook right now!
