Only Pieces of Perfection

It always gives me a kick of inspiration to see that a superb art piece way out of my league began as a rough sketch that's closer to my level. Emokih's realistic hand drawn portraits are not doodly at all, but I can’t resist sharing the WIP photos she posts. It's so intriguing to see a portion of meticulously perfected detail surrounded by the very basics of a sketch. One little corner that she labored intensively on, while the rest is left in its bare bones. I can't help finding it more interesting than the completed pieces sometimes.

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!

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!

Sketchy Fairytale Illustrations

black and white fairytale sketch

Like following a white rabbit, Kat Philbin’s drawings are leading me on a fairytale adventure. The story is not one that is read, but felt. No words are needed to keep me interested in the journey of a luminescent protagonist, glowing with innocence in contrast against the shadowy forest enveloping her. What she comes across in the forest could be ominous or gentle, but always something magical. Careful shading with fine lines holds the art together, creating the artist’s signature style of delicate children’s illustrations imbued with a foreboding tone.

Eerie Pen and Pencil Portraits

My thoughts are haunted by these monochrome sketches ever since I first came across them. I can’t get the images of malformed humans with oversized and tangled anatomy out of my mind. This seemingly endless portrait series is drawn with childlike abandon by Daniel Williams. Despite the simplistic, smudgy style, each rough line is drawn with purpose. There are so many of these odd little people that I can’t help admiring the artist’s ability to dream up countless characters with their own story to tell. If I had seen one of these human oddities on their own, I don’t think it would have fascinated me as much as seeing the consistency between every single one of Williams’ huge portfolio of drawings. It’s a mysterious effect that leaves me simultaneously impressed and uneasy.

Sketches From the Dark Side of the Moon

Moon is a French illustrator and graphic designer whose drawings devise a mysterious mythology of their own. Spectral girls in preternatural environments carry an elegant darkness with them, like characters in a grim fairy tale. The artist’s ink and pencil lines vary between sharp and wispy in a dramatic style, sometimes complimented by subtle watercolors. It’s an an incredible illustration style that draws elegiac scenes with poetic undertones while sticking to visual basics. You can see more of these melancholy mysteries if you check out Moon’s instagram.

Monochrome Minimalism

Korean artist Daehyun Kim, AKA Moonassi, has mastered the art of elegance in simplicity. His drawings made with pen, marker, and ink are an exploration of his own identity over the years. He says, “There is no specific background or theory about the drawing. Each drawing is created based on my daily thoughts and feelings.” A simple explanation to match his simple art style." The concept of each drawing is something personal to the artist, because only he is aware of what state he was in when he created each piece. We could never know what it’s truly about. Even so, the series does not alienate the rest of us. It’s easier to become immersed and connect with what you’re seeing when you accept that you don’t need to search it for meaning.
