Javier Ordaz: Women in Black

Javier's Instagram and website are filled with black & white sumi ink illustrations painted with a thick brush. The bold strokes and deepness of the black makes the images feel as if the ink is still wet on the page. Many of his images have a dark, slightly sinister feel to them, but a series of portraits caught my eye. Javier has painted a series of women in loving detail while still maintaining his gestural, loose style. The series makes me wonder who these women are, and what part they played in Javier's life.

Barcelona, 365

I'm in the mood for some sight-seeing today. I took a quick tour around Barcelona through the sketchbook of Òscar Julve. He is an illustrator from Spain who challenged himself to draw his city for an entire year. Barcelona, 365 is the well-chosen titled for his blog. I really enjoy seeing artists set specific motivational challenges for themselves to get sketching, even if it's an idea as simple as doodling your way through your hometown. It's easy to get caught in the details when sketching something right in front of you, but Julve's talented hands stick to creating rough sketches out of thin lines that evocatively capture the ambiance of Barcelona's corners.

Hop, Hop. Fashion, Baby.

Have you heard of Fifi Lapin? She's an international it-girl, style guru, and fashion icon who posts photos of her outfits online. She has collaborated with well-known designers who love her look and been featured in fashion magazines - even praised by Vogue as "an unlikely - but powerful - fashion force." What sets her apart from the rest of the fashionista world? Well, she’s an illustrated bunny.

Fifi Lapin's blog exists to answer the question, "What shall I wear today?" Most days she posts drawings of herself wearing opulently stylish outfits that she takes straight off the latest runways and red carpets. Fifi's posts sometimes include cute little updates on the globetrotting fashion adventures of a fabulously spoiled hare-ess. It’s a ridiculous and clever spin on fashion blogging! From now on, you’ll never want to read a blog that isn’t written by a rabbit again. (For the record, I am a Holland Lop and I am typing this with my fluffy paws.)

Soft Shading, Bold Contrast

Elfandiary’s sketchbook is magic. I’ve been bewitched by the soft shading + sharp geometric cut-outs coming together to make something that is delicate and bold at the same time. Page after page of glamorous people are drawn in a style that is realistic in some parts and sketchy in others. It’s both exciting and elegant! The artist has also posted a few mesmerizing time lapse videos of their drawing process that you can see right here.

I Tried to Draw You Last Night

Brandon Vosika's series "I Tried to Draw You Last Night" feels like a tribute to friendship. He's caught his friends in natural poses; the drawings feeling as easy and sincere as a friendship should be. It's not a simple task to draw people who are close to you – you want them to see the thought and care you put into making something just for them.

Brandon's technique and use of materials is another aspect of these pieces that caught my eye. He's painting with watercolor but not on watercolor paper, hence the uneven wrinkling of the paper. Brandon's rejection of "proper" materials enhances the casual nature of the pieces. I love his varying line weight in each of the drawings. Shapes and forms are suggested, lines trail off into nothing - these are truly sketches, but as personal pieces and as a body of work, they feel like more than an afterthought dashed off on a scrap piece of paper.

Serial Doodling

I began following Eric von Boxtel on Instagram a few months ago, when his layered and full-colored doodles popped up on my feed. They instantly caught my attention because there's probably nothing I like more than thick black doodled lines over a backdrop of color. It looks easy, it looks like a mish mash of a mess, like a kid who might have gotten away with a box of markers, but it's not at all the case.

These scribbles and shapes of color are intentional and come together so perfectly. I love looking at each spread, trying to find something new or to figure what he's drawn first on the page. If you want to be mesmerized for a full minute and forty-five seconds, watch this time-lapse video.

Watching Over You

Who are these giant creatures looming over towns and forests in the night? They are some of the odd and playful creations from Matt Forsythe's illustrations. Forsythe has done some seriously cool work in comics and on a show called Adventure Time (maybe you’ve heard of it). I love these wondrous delights he has been posting recently on his blog... Dream-like environments with melancholic colors and tons of whimsically serene little details surrounding the mysterious giants.
