The Art of Homeless Cop



I came across Homeless Cop through a friend on Facebook. He introduced us and I was a fan right out the gate. At first glance I thought his works were all vector illustrations but as it turns out they are actually oil paintings! The lines are so crisp and clean and the colors so amazing and bold. I was insanely impressed with his work. I caught up with him recently and asked him a few questions. I hope you all enjoy! Read the full interview »

Getting Sacred with Adrian Landon Brooks

Adrian Landon Brooks is a Houston, Texas artist that I first came in contact with through graffiti art. We were both graffiti artists and had a lot of mutual friends. Many years later we were both living in Austin, Texas and this is when I became more acquainted with his non graffiti art. We exhibited together in a group exhibition and also collaborated on a mural. He often paints on found objects and draws on old photographs. I love his use of color and strong imagery often focused on the concept of a savior bringing in aspects of religious painting such as the use of halos. He says about this, "I am drawn to sacred art of all kinds, especially art that emphasizes a 'savior.' Finding my creative voice brought freedom and redemption from everything that ails me. When I am creating work, the outside world is on pause and I can completely let go of all the trials and tribulations of the day. I feel that this is represented in the iconic images I create and is my attempt at paying homage to something greater than myself."

Check out more of his work at AdrianLandonBrooks.com and @AdrianLandonBrooks on Instagram.

Collaboration in Perfect Harmony



I cannot remember when or how I came across this video but I absolutely love it. I find myself coming back to watch it again and again. I have found in my own personal experience, that collaboration with other artists either works great or is a disaster. These two artists Supakitch and Koralie really pull it off flawlessly. Their work harmonizes beautifully. Everything about this video from the music for the way it is shot are perfect. The colors and the flow of the work is amazing. Such a great pairing of style.

The Daily Doodles of Andy Khun



Andy Khun is an illustrator from Seoul, South Korea. I first came across his work on instagram when I was living in Seoul. But it was not until I had moved to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam that I had the chance to meet him in person. The first month I was here he happened to be having an exhibition only a few blocks from my apartment. A dedicated doodler he posts several new drawings every day on his instagram and facebook pages. His illustrations are fun and quirky I hope you enjoy!

Journey of a Tiny Explorer



Umbra is a hand drawn animation, a mix of drawing and pastel, that I came across about a year ago. It is still one of my favorites. Simple drawings with such a huge impact. The animation conveys such great emotion. I must have watched this a million times. I have a little folder in my bookmarks for links to watch when feeling a little in the dumps creatively. This video is at the top of the list. I hope you love it as much as I do.

Oodles of Doodles

Hello everyone! Today I would like to share with you some of my own personal doodles and drawings that I have been working on recently. I will have a spread in an upcoming issue of Color Ink Book and have been working hard on new drawings for it. My favorite is my little twist on The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein: "The Giving Boy". He was a huge influence on me as a kid. I would check his books out at the school library and practice drawing by copying his artwork.

I've also been working on a series of 15 new paintings/drawings for an upcoming exhibition in Houston, Texas. I am doing all the paintings in the same neon color scheme. I hope you enjoy and here's to another super productive week! Keep on doodling! Continue reading »

Hi, How Are You



Today I want to introduce (to those who may not be acquainted) the art and music of Daniel Johnston. I was first introduced to his music and then subsequently his artwork when I was a teenager through the soundtrack to the movie KIDS. I immediately fell in love with his music and art. Later I moved to Austin, Texas a place where Daniel used to live. In the center of the city there is a big mural of one of his characters that is now iconic. A frog looking creature with snail like eyes that states Hi, How Are You. It now adorns t-shirts for the city of Austin and is almost like a mascot for the city. So you can kind of say he is a home town hero of mine.



A manic depressive and schizophrenic both his music and art are filled with emotion and with his work you get a direct look into his mind. His art is so pure and child like. Resonating with me in a way few artists have. One of my biggest influences and inspirations, his obvious passion and drive for his work are something that really struck a chord with me. I admire anyone with such drive. Despite any obstacles he has, he has been unrelenting in his pursuit and love of art. I hope you enjoy his music and artwork as much as I do and can draw inspiration from him. I highly advise checking out the documentary about his life The Devil and Daniel Johnston. Read on »
