Change Joy

The art of Ines Seidel is gentle and full of joyful wonderment. I fell for the soft lines and watercolors brushed across recycled pages and altered books.

Thank Heavens for Old Books

The art from Ekaterina Panikanova's second ever solo show is brilliant, and a stark reminder that we need to hang onto the tangibles from our history. When I see this type of work I crave for the analog, and cringe to think about a future of digital audio books and downloadable reads. I still want the smell and feel of worn-out pages between my fingers. We're moving too fast. I need a breather. Stop, let's hold hands and look at the beautiful art together.

Look-N-Find

Long-time friend of DA, Mr. Jess Smart Smiley is making a children's book he's quite passionate about. It's not often that I post about Kickstarter type projects, but I couldn't help falling in love with his cute monsters and playful scenes. The book is titled, Rumpus on the Run, and is Kickstarter's first "look-n-find" book.

Lucky for us, Jess passed along some of his sketches from over the years. Take a look below and make sure to check out his Kickstarter page, the rewards especially, he's even offering to draw some of you right into the book ;)

Sketchbooks with Infinite Detail


I don't have a patient hand when it comes to drawing. I tend to move the pen quickly and skip the details. My perspective is off, my lines are crooked and the drawing is typically made on something ephemeral, like a random scrap of something. And then I move on.

The sketchbook of Mattias Adolfsson is the opposite of mine in every which way. There's tons of detail, patient lines, and incredible depth and perspective. I'm still trying to wrap my head around how this is all done within the confines of a Moleskine sketchbook. Below is a selection of my favorite and it goes without saying that you should visit his site and see them in even greater detail.

Not Your Average Textbook Situation

Julianna Brion and I both live in Baltimore, Maryland, and I recently had the pleasure of visiting her studio space. Julianna creates illustrations for a myriad of clients, but also manipulates awesome old books (think textbooks) with painting and collages.

It is in these books that she can experiment with imagery or technique. While they are important to her, they aren’t overly precious and she’s able to unwind creatively and not worry about the consequences. As a result, she’s created some great spreads.

See more of Julianna’s work! Did you know she also quilts?

Caffeinated Constellations

Cecilia Levy stains the inside of her books with coffee and then adds delicate lines with a fine liner pen to create these simple and beautiful patterns. I'd easily frame any one of these to hang on the studio wall.

A Lovely Collection of Thoughts

Have you seen Andrea Wan's Mini Journal? well, if you haven't, I have to tell you it is a must in your next inspiration search. She made a mini journal containing a collection of 4"x6" drawings inspired in thoughts and ideas of her own. Her project is full of creepy and adorable images. One of the best sketchbooks I've seen lately. It is a beautiful project made to be seen and enjoyed page by page.
