Featured Artist #21: Greg Kletsel

Greg Kletsel is a drawing machine. In all seriousness, I believe he must be built of metal and moving parts with at least one robotic arm and an infinite supply of ink. That's the only thing that could explain the amount of work he outputs.

I met Greg a thousand years ago when he interviewed at the studio I worked at. The position didn't play out, but I liked his drawing skills and asked if he'd draw up an idea I had for a t-shirt. That's how Tools of the Trade was born (it's still one of my favorite tees).

Today, Greg is a full-time illustrator and designer based in Brooklyn, New York who's rocking it on the illustration scene. Cranking out zines, comics, posters, and all while filling up sketchbook pages by the minute. I have tons of respect for Greg and so it made perfect sense to feature his work in an exclusive drawn interview. He of course did not take the task lightly and simply blew our minds away with his drawn responses to each question. Check out the detail, line work and thought behind each drawing. Wow!

Featured: John Malta

The world of John Malta is in another realm. His shaky uneven lettering, his colorful yet dark and eerie illustrations, his fascination with punk shows and pet lizards - they all make for something that's weird and wonderful at the same time.

To this day, John's cat doodle (I'm still not quite sure if it's really a cat but I love him anyway), which you can find inside our DA coloring book, remains as one of my favorites.

For his feature, John answered a few questions for us in doodle form. His answers, as you will see, are full of character, full of texture, full of awesome. He also sent over some photos from inside his studio in NYC, where he is living now.

Moldy Magic. That's how he refers to his work. And really, I couldn't have come up with a better pairing of words to describe John Malta and his sultry craft. It's bound to grow on you, if it hasn't already.

Featured: Clemens Behr

I secretly refer to him as "Clemens The Great." It's true. Because his work is truly that good.

I can't remember when I discovered Cle's work. It must have been a year or two ago. But I do remember my reaction when I first saw the chaotic juxtaposition of basic geometric shapes, sharp angles and bold lines. It's the same reaction I get every time, even after frequent visits to his site. My jaw drops to the ground, my eyes get watery from not wanting to look away or blink for an instant.

We at DA are nothing short of ecstatic to have this exclusive "Doodle Interview" with Clemens Behr. He has also shared with us some of his recent works and an inside peak inside his very colorful studio brimming with tapes and boxes.

Enjoy the interview and the extra goodies. And here's a tip I've learned: It's okay to blink.

Featured: Morgan Blair

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.

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.

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.

Featured: Jolby

Bert and Ernie. Batman and Robin. Cheech and Chong. Josh and Colby.

Collaborative teams must be able to compliment one another. And who does that better than Josh Kenyon and Colby Nichols? We here at DA love collaborations and are big fans of Jolby. These guys may very well be sharing the same brain - filled with patterns, textures and nonsense.

So how do they do it? For their feature, they agreed to document an entire week of Jolby. Here is an exclusive look at their amazing work, a whole lotta doodles and some moustache humor thrown in just for good measure.

Feature #17: A Week with Jolby »

Featured: Ted McGrath

You know him for his somewhat unpolished illustrations. You know him for his distinctly imperfect line work. You know him for his frantic collages and curious humor. You know him for being a bit of a mess.

You know him for being inspiring.

Ted McGrath doodles for some big names and now he’s doodling just for us! For his feature, we tried something new and fun. We interviewed him by asking a few simple questions and he answered in true Ted form – doodles only.

Ted was also kind enough to send us an exclusive set of scans from his sketchbook, 29 of them to be exact. Did your jaw just drop? Ours did. Take a look around, click on it all, there’s no shortage of scribbles or scraps of tape around here.

Featured: David Fullarton

They say that sometimes an image is just an image, that it takes a mind to make it more. Thank goodness for the mind of David Fullarton.

With an abundance of textures, words and scribbles, David tells stories. And you can count on his stories to always be outlandish, to always make you think, "How the hell did he come up with that?" That is precisely what I asked him to explain for his feature. In his work, he pokes fun at the mundane and the shortcomings of human character. For that, we love him.

These days, David is keeping busy prepairing for his upcoming art show at Hang Art in San Francisco. It's appropriately titled "Once Again I Fail To Live Up To My Advance Publicity" and opens on April 2nd. If I were you, I'd run over there. A little offbeat humor is good for your lungs.

For his feature, David sent us over 9 never before seen pieces (until now) as an advance peak into his art show. Enjoy this and the thoughts inside of his head, in his own words.
