People Paper Shapes



I recently participated in a collage contest, and at times felt like I was all thumbs while trying to cut out tiny slivers of paper at just the right size. In her piece Citypass Jerusalem, Iris Kost has mastered the technique of embracing the non-perfection that comes with the process of cut-out paper shapes, all the while making it look whimsical, simple, and adorable. Her characters all have such expression and uniqueness, and I love the bright color palette. Iris makes the experience of riding the train into a lovely, pleasant one, one where you just might meet someone as interesting and creative as Iris.

Iris Kost does more than paper art – check out her website and Flickr!

Art Direction and Adolescence by Alex Citrin

I first stumbled upon Alex Citrin's work through the illustration blog Brown Paper Bag, run by Sarah Barnes. The blog posted about Citrin's freshly published magazine Until Now, a fascinating and poignant collection of essays about coming of age. Each essay is accompanied by beautiful, powerful, and hilarious illustrations by artists from all over.

But beyond her talent as an art director, Alex Citrin's illustrations stand alone as unusual and interesting work I can totally relate to. I particularly love the way she creates a portrait with the dark lines, exaggerated features, and brooding expressions, and how most of the drawing is black and white but with carefully measured additions of color.

Instagram Likes, Pt. 6

I have about 45 random apps installed on my phone and I confess I probably only use five of them regularly. Instagram is in that small group of five. I'm a visual person, so being able to pull a feed of images from folks that inspire me has become a daily pleasure/addiction.

This is another segment for one of my favorite columns on DA. Part six begins with one of my own drawings (at top) and continues to feature things from scribbles to refined illustrations from some very inspiring people. You can click the following links to view the archive: part one, two, three, four, and five.

Instagram Likes, Pt. 5

If you haven't noticed, I like writing these type of entries. It's fun to show off some of the things that inspire me or catch my eye over on Instagram. Here's yet another collection. Scroll down and look at all the pretty stuff.

The one on top is by me and a reminder that you can follow Doodlers Anonymous along by searching "okat" or "doodlers" in the app. See you over there soon.

Excuse Me Sir, Will You Please Vandalize My School Shoes?

Do you remember the art teacher you had in school? If not, then maybe you can take this one for a spin. His name is Todd Marrone. He's an artist who lives & teaches middle-school in Philadelphia. He says things like, "if God didn’t want me to draw on my students’ shoes, he wouldn’t have made them out of canvas". I wish he'd been my art teacher! How cool to come into class, learn a few things, then walk out with a custom paint job on your sneakers. Or binder, or hat, or skateboard. Or piggy bank...

Music = Art = Music

If you are like me you often create late into the night accompanied by music you can get lost in and let your hands go free. I think it would be impossible for me to create without these soundscapes becoming soundtracks to each line I draw, each thought I have, each revelation and with every finished creation.

It Left an Impression

This website pretty much made my day, for many reasons. Here's a little background story. I have been voicing my dissatisfaction to my friend for days now - about feeling indifferent, about how difficult it is to be in a constant state of inspiration. She sits right behind me at work. I got back from grabbing a cup of coffee and had an email sitting in my inbox from her. It was the link to this website and the words: "A little inspiration. Great music, photos, design, all in one..."
