These Pen Drawings are ON POINT

Dot dot dot . . .

My mind is a little blank after looking at Pet & Dot's relaxing ink art... I love the smooth gradients and sharp geometry formed by constant, deliberate tapping of a pen tip on paper... Every tiny dot matters, each little speck works with the others to come together as a visual treat for the eyes... It's calming to see the artist's progress photos of each page being drawn drop by drop, dot by dot... You can even see some short videos of the hand-drawn process on Pet & Dot’s blog!

Coloring Up A Storm in the Doodlers Anonymous Epic Coloring Book

doodlers anonymous epic coloring book

There's nothing that makes our day like seeing the way our books inspire others to color up something beautiful. We discovered Dede Willingham a month or so ago when she hosted a live stream of herself coloring one of the pages from our Epic Coloring Book. The stream (which you can still watch on her uStream channel) also included Dede walking us through the book, showing the many pages she had already colored in, and discussing her favorite illustrations. Her colored pages looked phenomenal and she had so many kind words to say about our book to her community. The way Dede colors is special because she doodles in her own additions to the illustrations that weren't there before. It's easy to just fill in between the lines, but Dede really interacts with the art and builds on it with her own flair. She adds tattoos, or wind and snow, and other exciting details that I'd never have expected.

Naturally, Dede swept us off our feet! She's a portrait artist who draws a wide range of things from pets to celebrities for commissions. In her free time, she enthusiastically participates in and engages with the online art community. She does a live stream every Monday at 9am (some Wednesdays and Fridays too) in which you can watch her draw or color. The show is called Coffee and Art in the Morning and it’s amazing to see her in action, so give it a look. Below are some more pages from our Epic Coloring Book that Dede worked her magic on. It’s simply enchanting to find how many small details she weaves in to breathe new life into these black and white pages.

Doodles of an Architecture Student

Jaewon Yeo is an architecture student living in South Korea who makes impressive black and white images of city life. Soft and hazy watercolors create a powerful balance between black and white, held together by the richest shades in between. Like being out on a foggy day, the details look minimal, but still defined enough to create a detailed glimpse of city bustle. See more of Yeo’s work on her tumblr!

Memories in Moleskine

Images from Stephan Hohenthanner’s blog seem more like memories than sketches to me. He makes a habit of sketching the mundane with close attention to all its little details, but the way he captures it on the page is moody and atmospheric. Stephan is an illustrator in Hamburg, so I’m going to assume these are real places in Germany. I’ve never been to Germany, so it’s strange for me to admit that his illustrated scenes make me feel a nostalgic sense of comfort from streets and homes I’m not familiar with at all.

The Element of Chaos in Watercolor

painting gif

I first found Agnes Cecile when I came across a sped up video of her creating a painting from start to finish. The first two minutes show her crafting a detailed, realistic portrait of a lady, but my interest wasn’t piqued until she brought her perfected woman down to the floor and started to splash a halo of watercolors over her. There’s a disorder to Agnes Cecile’s works that makes them exciting. Her portraits have a tendency to look half finished, elaborately detailed in some spots and a drippy mess in others. Her process videos show how much of her art is left up to chance. She paints her vision with absolute confidence, but the element of chaos is always there.

Seeing Through a Doodler's Eyes with POV Sketches

pov sketch

Artists who sketch on location always catch my interest. I love the spontaneous nature of pulling out a pen and paper wherever you are to capture an instance. Paul Heaston makes a habit of drawing every visual detail in his surroundings until his page is full. He sketches his entire field of view, including his own hands and sketchbook. By drawing exactly what he sees, the wide angle perspectives of places around Denver really make me feel like I’m looking at Heaston’s city through his own eyes. If you like his POV style, you will also enjoy one of our entries from last year about The Sketchbook as a Center Point.

Malisa Suchanya’s Black and White Pencil Portraits

graphite portrait

My small obsession this week is Malisa Suchanya's series of graphite portraits. Its cast of lovely ladies is diverse and expressive... plus, there's a handful of familiar faces in there. Suchanya says that she remains a lover for traditional art in a technological age, and her artwork proves it. When I first found her portraits, I had a hard time tearing my eyes away from all the immense graphite detail woven into the perfect textures for skin, hair, clothes, etc. She pays meticulously close attention to fine details, creating a super cool contrast between realistic faces and their more stylized surroundings. She sometimes posts progress photos on her Tumblr, so make sure to check that out too!
