Tumblr of the Week: DERIK

How excited would you be if you were out for a walk and came across these guys eying you through a window? My favorite thing about these vibrant characters is how they bring life and humor to the otherwise colorless places they are found in. It's fun to see artists getting creative with the environment beyond their pens and paper. I'm lucky that DERIK happens to follow the DA tumblr so that I could have the chance to stumble onto his blog. Street artists like him make the world a more magical place full of colorful surprises around unexpected corners!

Tumblr of the Week: Gourmet Scum

I really enjoy it when artists add captions or speech bubbles to their drawings of people. Maybe it stems from my love of comics or maybe the added commentary makes the experience that much better. The Tumblr of the Week today belongs to an 18 year old artist from Chicago named Meredith, who seems to be pretty heavily influenced by 80's aesthetics. Something about these marker doodles does give me flashbacks to certain old cartoons I used to watch on television. Find more of these goodies on Meredith's blog!

Sketchbook Pages to Get Lost In





I know nothing formal about Tanxuan, except that he's from Shenzhen, China and that he's got an incredible talent for drawing, with some of the most beautiful sketchbook pages I've ever laid my eyes on.

His Instagram is a constant feed of jaw dropping inspiration with drawings ranging from seductive women to odd foods to incredible overlapping cityscapes and the people within them.

Coloring Book Interview Series #5:
Ellen Leber



One of my favorite things about our coloring books is looking up the artist of a page I really like, because I usually end up falling straight down their rabbit hole. For example, Ellen Leber's atmospheric illustrations contain a depth that sucks me right into her world, especially since they are sometimes actually three dimensional.

Tell me more, Ellen...

Colors and Crowded Faces

The sketchbooks that immediately catch my attention are the ones that are brimming with color. There is something scintillating about seeing so many colors confined to such a small space. It feels like bottled rampage even if the subjects in the pages are meek.





Each of the pages of Valerie Choi's recent sketchbook is crammed with characters piled atop of each other as burst of color overtakes them. It makes me feel as if the pages will break apart and the colors and caricatures will spill over onto her desk like water does when it can no longer be contained.

Valarie has documented her sketchbook in progress in this short video, which you won't want to miss.

Stylistic Portraits with a Ballpoint Pen



I discovered the drawings of Milton Lozada while browsing through the artists on the Sktchy app (which by the way has been growing into a really great community). Milton is a tattoo artist working out of South Florida, whose style of drawing really came across to me in the portraits he inks with a simple ballpoint pen. To me, they all seem to be referencing a future we have yet to come across.

He's got a nice collection of work to be seen over on his Instagram feed as well.

Her Life with a Little Bit of Fiction



Paintings, drawings, words. All of it. I'm in love with Herikita's art. It speaks truths in soft colors and is quite often made-up of angled homes and rooftops, pets and insects, women and men, all of whom are sharing their awkward feelings and I just want more and more of it.

Her bio alone was enough to make me smile. Here's a small bit of my favorite part, "I work at midnight like Cinderella’s mice, almost always, when everyone is sleeping and something pops up in my mind.."

It's such a great visual.
