Anthropological Drawings from 1903 of Kachinas from the Hopi Culture

native american hopi drawing

This find is an oldie but a goodie! It’s always super cool to see hand drawn illustrations from way back when. In 1903, a 30 year old Hopi man named Kutcahanauu, also called White-Bear, was hired by an American anthropologist to record different kachinas (spirits revered in Hopi and Pueblo culture). When I think of drawings of religious icons, I don’t expect them to look as fun as these, so Kutcahanauu’s uniquely Hopi style came as an awesome surprise. His drawings look right at home amongst the fun, spontaneous art we normally share, don't they? You can click here to read about the cultural significance of kachinas and see more drawings.

June's Guest Contributor: Rik Catlow (aka rikcat)

I first discovered and wrote about Rik Catlow's drawings back in September of 2012, during a member spotlight on his "urban pop art" style. I've been following his updates ever since and his tricked-out collages just keep getting better.

It's my pleasure to introduce him as our guest contributor for the month of June. He'll be blogging alongside our usual team and highlighting artists and other visual finds that are sure to peak your interest.

In the meantime, be sure to check out his incredibly cool paint jobs on smashed aluminum cans. He's also got an Etsy shop filled with original handmade art and as an added bonus, we are giving away a Rik Catlow digital wallpaper that's hot off the presses for you to enjoy. Grrr!

Member Spotlight: Rik Catlow

Rik paints smashed up beer and soda cans with his style of "urban pop art." Drawing quirky characters and embellishing them with type, colors, and magazine cut-outs is what he does best and we love him for it. Click for a glimpse of what I mean or read about his process here.

And now I've just discovered that he's keeping a tumblr blog of sketchbook doodles called Scrib Dibbles and I just had to share. Follow along for improvised, one-color, pen on paper, character-driven awesomeness. Drawn and posted with no editing or erasing. Much respect!

There's a Forklift in My Pencil Case

Sometimes I worry that my doodlings might be getting a bit claustrophobic in that A5 notebook of mine. Would they be happier with a bit more space to play around in? Maybe some fresh air and a more interesting view than the last page's bum?

I'm keen to take notes from Luke Ramsey and Josh Holinaty - these boys know how to go BIG! For this mural in Canada, their doodling space was so huge they needed a forklift to reach the top!

It's probably best that I don't let the doodlings in my A5 notebook catch wind of this. They'd be so jealous. They might go on strike until I gave them more space to play around in. I guess I'll have to bust out the A3 butchers paper tonight, that'll keep them happy! For now.

Ceskin’s doodles are as inviting and playful as an amusement park. I want to spend a day inside them to wander amongst the happy faces and savor the eye candy.

Finger People Among Others

There's something really fantastic happening with Tania Toronja's drawings. You might be more familiar with her flickr name, visamexicana. Either way, her work is mesmerizing. It's a little creepy at first glance but her use of vibrant colors and shapes take it to a very fun, playful level. Take a look. You won't get scared, I promise.
