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, itís done with economy and intelligence."

The Fantastical and Imaginary


One look and I was immediately drawn into the fantastical and surreal world of Estela Cuadro's artwork. Her paintings seem as ink stains caught in a dreamlike state, very often the backdrop to fictional characters, animals, and plants. As she explains (in an interview over at Something You Said), "I like that my art is not exactly real, belonging completely to imaginary worlds ... I think that much of my time is spent connected to my unconscious."

Everything is Connected by Drawn Lines

I recently discovered Saimon Chow's work and now I'm infatuated with it. All day long, with the visual bombardment the internet provides, it's hard to come across something that truly captures your attention and is unique enough to deserve it.

Saimon is an accomplished artist and designer out of New York with a full portfolio of illustration styles, but it's his one-color drawings that won me over. They're a collision of opposite cultures, made with bold strokes and drowning in symbolism. I especially enjoy how he connects elements in the drawings with thin lines, leading us through a visual narrative.

That's Gross, I Love It

Gore, girls, and robots everywhere--I think I'm in love. I tripped over the art of Lauren YS today when I read about her upcoming exhibition, "Behind You." I was instantly hooked in by the in-your-face girliness dripping with attitude. Her portfolio is gushing with colors that remind me of rainbow swirl ice cream, deceptively sweet at first glance until you start noticing all the nasty little details.

*Make sure to to watch her video after the fold, where she flips through 4 complete years of sketchbook drawings from her Moleskine.

Drawing the Cityscape in His Head

Bricks, windows, arches, curves, angles, roofs... you name it, if it's part of the city architecture, it's very likely Daniel Van Der Noon has drawn it.

Everything about his art inspires me. They are all hand-drawn and inked directly onto a wall, window, or canvas. No prior sketching or mapping. It's just one stroke here, another line there and soon enough buildings and rooftops appear.

In his own words, "I like to travel a lot, visit new cities, see new places, hear new noises. Through these skylines I guess that the perks that I experience from traveling around are amplified in ink, and the memories recorded in these ongoing sprawls of images and text."

You'll find plenty to like in the following images, and I guarantee you'll especially enjoy the process videos after the fold.

A Beautiful Tribute: Google Illustrates Some of Steinbeck's Monumental Works


Perhaps no novel opens more powerfully than John Steinbeck's Cannery Row: "Cannery Row in Monterey in California is a poem, a stink, a grating noise, a quality of light, a tone, a habit, a nostalgia, a dream."

Steinbeck delicately drags the reader into the visceral, tactile, and palpable worlds of his Depression era characters. We smell and taste and spit out life with them.

Today Google doodled some of Steinbeck's monumental works in celebration of his birthday. The illustrated slides, featuring quotes from the depicted novels, are a bold and beautiful tribute to a cherished American author. Hats off Google- gorgeously executed.

Tumblr of the Week: Klara Grancicova

The gem we found in our Tumblr followers this week is Klara Grancicova. Her simple geometric drawings gain a surprising layer of meaning from the words she adds to them. While browsing down her blog I found myself playing a game where I would just look at the drawing and ignore the words for a moment, then see how reading the text changed my perception of it. If I had seen one of her doodles on its own somewhere, I might have just thought "ah, cool" and moved on. But seeing the cohesive chemistry between every single one of her drawings from last year up until now is ridiculously cool.
