More Than Words

Last month, I was in New York for the day and found myself browsing through the books at Anthropologie. As usual, I briefly glanced through the clothes (don't get me wrong, I do love clothes), but then I would stop and flip through every single book I found in front of me.

The book, "More Than Words: Illustrated Letters From The Smithsonian's Archive of American Art" by Liza Kirwin was a gem of a find. The right words will always find its way to someone but when these words are accompanied by a doodle or drawing....

Sigh. So much greater.

I urge you to get this book. It is a beautiful compilation of personal letters by some of the most revered artists, each one decorated with an intimate illustration. Together with their words, they become autobiographical works of art revealing the joys and successes, loves and longings, disappointments and frustrations of their authors' lives.

Just Draw It

Michael Nobbs is a complete source of inspiration and motivation for the lazy artist and doodler. With over 24,000 followers, his twitter feed alone is a force to be reckon with as he posts link after link of inspiration. It doesn't stop there. For the third time now he's released a free eBook to encourage us all to draw, and then draw some more. Click here to download.

The HORROR of the BLANK!!!

I was recently contacted by The Art Bureau to do 10 pages in a zine/book featuring 10 other artists and myself. I excitedly accepted only to seize up in the idea stage for 3 straight weekends as life got in the way and the evil deadline came hurling toward me. Since I work full-time, those 3 weekends were much needed for my mental stability. This moment of insanity became the premise of my submission. Below are some teaser shots of the work which goes to press on March 7 and lands in my hands at a time to be decided by fate. I will announce this on my blog when it releases.

When Inside Comes Out

I bought a book by Sabrina Ward Harrison titled "Spilling Open" a few years back. It transformed my approach to art. The book is, I believe, the first of a few of her published art journals. It is filled with loose, colorful, scribbles, doodles, paint strokes, hand lettering, photos, found objects and more all collaged together, forming very striking, energetic eye candy. More than pretty pictures, she bares her soul on every page with brutal honesty. Freeing inspiration spills out of her. Sometimes it is driven by triumph and other times, painful insecurity. Either way, the result is a more beautiful world. I highly respect her bravery as well as her talent.

Image + Text + Humor

Do you ever wonder if there's a difference between a doodle, a cartoon, a gag, or a work of fine art? "More Things Like This" is a book filled with work from artists who very simply create plain imagery and then add absurd text (which might seem inappropriate to some), in an effort to deflate the seriousness of the notion of fine art. Sometimes you just have to take things a little less serious and laugh at the ridiculousness, of well, everything.

Child-like Imagination

Who could say that they've had the privilege of collaborating with the likes of Gary Baseman, Tim Biskup, Barry McGee, James Jean, Ed Fella, Dave Kinsey, Jay Ryan, Grotesk, Parra - the list goes on forever. Eight year old Cohen Morano can. Like most kids, Cohen likes to watercolor. What's different about his paintings is that his dad has sent them out to an impressive roster of artists and illustrators. These artists have then added and altered Cohen's watercolor creations in their own style to create something completely new - focusing on celebrating the creativity of childhood. You can see all of the collaborations in the book titled, "The Rest is Up to You" I promise, this book is a goodie.
