Inside the Sketchbook of Pat Perry



I've been following Pat Perry's work since 2010, when I posted a time-lapse video of him creating a beautiful layered painting over the course of a few weeks (you can watch it here).

Today I want to focus your attention on his sketchbooks. They are so intricate and detailed, it's really incredible how much goes into each spread. His drawings are so much more than just sketches of what may be in front of him, they are scenes that will capture your attention and seem to be alive, almost breathing with life. You can see plenty more over on his website: patperry.net

This Is Some Awesome Visual Stimuli

I just got my ass kicked by the chaos of color that is the world of Leanna Perry. My eyes are still twitching and now fully stimulated from browsing through her image feed. I love the bold palette she uses to impact each line streaking across the page. Blah, blah, blah, never mind what I have to say, the work speaks for itself. Look »

There's A Heavy Weight On My Shoulders



When I look through our DA Flickr group, the work of Ann Pajuväli always catches my attention. I can't help it, it's unique and modest. Something about the angle and crop of her drawings that really strike me with emotion. I especially love her collection of drawn people with stones for heads.

There's Always A Reason To Be Pretty



Long-time friends, Nophar Haimovitz (fashion/jewelry designer) and Hodaya Louis (fashion illustrator) have collaborated for the image launch of Reason To Be Pretty's latest collection of jewelry, and it's a match made in heaven.

Their styles blend perfectly, take a closer look and you'll notice how subtle and elegant Hodaya's illustrated women wear the photographed jewelry of Nophar's designs. It's so great to see two different forms of art come together like this.

Celebrate their work by visiting reasontobepretty.com where you can shop the full collection and be sure to check out more of Hodaya's work over at hodayalouis.com.

Tumblr of the Week:
Ahmet Özcan Illustrations



I came across the drawings of Ahmet Özcan after he mailed in one of our Doodle Addict postcards and then again when he submitted an illustration for our latest coloring book. My favorite posts are the photos of his awesome white-on-black doodles over his sketchbook. The characters in his drawings are creature feature material, often looking as if they are emerging out of the whiteness to come after you. There's something so interesting about the way he leaves out the body of the monster, leaving much of it up to your imagination to color in. Equal parts playful and creepy, fans of monsters will love his doodles! See more of his images »

The Incredible Analog Drawing Machine





Oh my, I am in love with this project by Tobias Gutmann. It's one of the happiest and most creative things I've ever shared here on DA.

The Face-o-mat is a portable drawing booth that Tobias carried around with him 40,000 kilometers through Europe, Africa and Asia, drawing over 700 faces. The booth itself is incredibly designed and built, from the coin slot and style sliders to the clicking carousel of paper simulating a matrix printer. I want to teleport Tobias and his machine over here and have him draw portraits of everyone I know. So cool, especially his unique style of drawing. Enjoy and be sure to watch the video above.
