Her Life with a Little Bit of Fiction



Paintings, drawings, words. All of it. I'm in love with Herikita's art. It speaks truths in soft colors and is quite often made-up of angled homes and rooftops, pets and insects, women and men, all of whom are sharing their awkward feelings and I just want more and more of it.

Her bio alone was enough to make me smile. Here's a small bit of my favorite part, "I work at midnight like Cinderella’s mice, almost always, when everyone is sleeping and something pops up in my mind.."

It's such a great visual.

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!

Heads Will Roll



I'm really enjoying the folksy art coming from Emmanuel Gutiérrez (aka EMMGUT) out of Costa Rica. His style feels familiar yet unique. I love how simple the drawings present in just black ink and then how they completely pop off the page when he adds the color and shading. His instagram feed is chock full of good stuff.

Inside the Sketchbook of Gabriel Picolo



Since launching Doodlers Anonymous back in 2009, I've seen my share of Drawing-A-Day projects, but so rare do they ever capture my attention like this one has by Brazil based artist Gabriel Picolo.

His daily drawings are deeply intricate and scenic. How one can pull off this intense of a drawing every day for a year is beyond me. If you're a fan, like I expect you should be, follow him on Instagram for more drawn goodness.

Get Lost in Helen Cann's Hand-Drawn Maps

I got introduced to Helen Cann's work via twitter the other day and was immediately side-tracked by her crazy detailed hand-drawn city map of Brighton (see above). It gets better, visit the map on her site and it comes complete with rollovers from both a local and personal history of all the nooks and crannies in the town's streets and avenues.



Also as immersive (and impressive) is the drawn map she did of the history of coffee houses that began in Exchange Alley (London), starting in 1652. Once again, you can rollover most anything on the map for detailed captions that are sometimes informative and sometimes quirky.

Helen's work is a beautiful nod to the analog world, as it's "...entirely hand produced, mainly in watercolour, coloured pencil, graphite and collage." I'm especially in love with this time-lapse video of her painting up Youthtopia.





You can find more of her works at: helencannfineart.com and helencann.co.uk

30 Artists, 1 Monkey and An Outdoor Film Festival in The South of Italy



La Guarimba is a festival in the South of Italy that primarily exists to showcase short films and bring lots of great people together over the course of a few days, during the late Summer month of August.

Last year, illustrator (and DA friend) Sara Fratini teamed up with some dedicated folks to repair and reopen an outdoor movie theater. That was the start of La Guarimba.

This year, it looks as though the gathering will more than triple in size and possibly carry twice as many films as it did last year.

Somehow along the way a monkey became their mascot and to help promote the event, Sara asked 30 illustrators to design a poster (in their regions language) to be exhibited during the event. I'm happy to be included as one of the invited artists and really just love the way we each interpreted the poster in our own unique style.

Above is a glimpse into a few of my favorites, but you can catch the entire gallery (and their respective credits) on their Facebook page.

Animated GIFs Drawn with Pencil



Miranda Pfeiffer recently dropped me a line about her drawings and animated GIFs made with mechanical pencil. I like how she renders normal objects found in real life, but then adds a bit of quirkiness when going into her hand-drawn animations.

She really gets the process too, I love this description by her, "Because they are brief and only have a visual component, when a GIF is powerful, it’s done with economy and intelligence." See more »
