Everything is Connected by Drawn Lines



I recently discovered Saimon Chow's work and now I'm infatuated with it. All day long, with the visual bombardment the internet provides, it's hard to come across something that truly captures your attention and is unique enough to deserve it.

Saimon is an accomplished artist and designer out of New York with a full portfolio of illustration styles, but it's his one-color drawings that won me over. They're a collision of opposite cultures, made with bold strokes and drowning in symbolism. I especially enjoy how he connects elements in the drawings with thin lines, leading us through a visual narrative.

Primal Drawings and Falling Limbs



Piotr’s work is pretty and primal. The artist's rural, folk-art sensibility is expressed in the masks and dense tribal and geometric patterns. Reminiscent of wood block prints or cave paintings, his work tells a rugged tale about nature and human nature. Visit his website for more.

Featured Artist #21: Greg Kletsel

Greg Kletsel is a drawing machine. In all seriousness, I believe he must be built of metal and moving parts with at least one robotic arm and an infinite supply of ink. That's the only thing that could explain the amount of work he outputs.

I met Greg a thousand years ago when he interviewed at the studio I worked at. The position didn't play out, but I liked his drawing skills and asked if he'd draw up an idea I had for a t-shirt. That's how Tools of the Trade was born (it's still one of my favorite tees).

Today, Greg is a full-time illustrator and designer based in Brooklyn, New York who's rocking it on the illustration scene. Cranking out zines, comics, posters, and all while filling up sketchbook pages by the minute. I have tons of respect for Greg and so it made perfect sense to feature his work in an exclusive drawn interview. He of course did not take the task lightly and simply blew our minds away with his drawn responses to each question. Check out the detail, line work and thought behind each drawing. Wow!

Tumblr of the Week: Mangun



It's interesting how we can immediately identify a person's face in drawings, even when, upon closer inspection, they barely contain any characteristics of real humans. Indonesian artist Popo Mangun's black and white drawings are an example of this mental habit. His tumblr is a gallery of strange portraits, whose geometric shapes are reminiscent of ancient tribal masks.

Thick Strokes



Amelie Petit Moreau was born on a sunny afternoon in 1987. The style of her ink on paper sketches reminds me of primitive cave drawings - thick strokes suggesting shapes and figures. But her work is sexy in its roughness, even when the subject is a kitchen sink or a box on a pedestal table.

I See People in the Crowd



No man's an island. We are made up of the random faces that crowd us on the street, the flirtatious faces that populate our dreams, and the familiar, comforting faces that inhabit our memories. Those faces—the faces of others—make up our life experience. Could you capture them all? Guilherme Kramer of Sao Paulo spent a year doing just that. He covered a wall with the people he sees in the crowd--each painted face seemingly eager to tell his own story. Take some time and hang out with them.

March's Guest Contributor:
Vincent Griffin

Most days when I post inspiration on Doodlers Anonymous, it's because I discovered an artist doing something so incredibly different than my own style, that I just want to share them with everyone. Other times, I discover an artist whose style is so familiar to me, that I practically connect to each and every one of their drawings.

In this case, it was with Vincent Griffin's work. I've been following his feed on Instagram and quickly realized how often I "like" one of his images. We only exchanged a few emails, but I immediately knew he would be a great fit to guest write for the month of March.

He gladly accepted.

Vincent works in Little Rock, Arkansas as an illustrator and part-times it playing music in two different bands (or music collectives as he called them). He lives on Instagram and posts completed works on Land and Shape. Here are some of my favorites, but I really just wanted to post all of his work.
