There's Always A Reason To Be Pretty



Long-time friends, Nophar Haimovitz (fashion/jewelry designer) and Hodaya Louis (fashion illustrator) have collaborated for the image launch of Reason To Be Pretty's latest collection of jewelry, and it's a match made in heaven.

Their styles blend perfectly, take a closer look and you'll notice how subtle and elegant Hodaya's illustrated women wear the photographed jewelry of Nophar's designs. It's so great to see two different forms of art come together like this.

Celebrate their work by visiting reasontobepretty.com where you can shop the full collection and be sure to check out more of Hodaya's work over at hodayalouis.com.

The Wonderful World of Mutants



Last year my wife and I spent a year living in Seoul, South Korea. Before leaving the states I did some research and tried to find artists and creative people to connect with. I came across the artist known as Junk House on Flickr. A street artist, illustrator, and sculptor whose bright colors and organic shapes molded into funky characters that immediately grabbed my attention. I also have a background in graffiti and street art and thought she would be the perfect person to contact. She ended up being super friendly and one of the best friends I could have made while living in Seoul. We collaborated on many projects with her group the Seoul Urban Art Project. A collective of street artists both from Korea and abroad as well as photographers and videographers who get together to plan and put up work all over Seoul (filming and photographing it all).

She's one of the most hard working artists I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. Constantly collaborating with different companies in Korea you can find her work all over Seoul. From murals and street art, to paintings and sculpture work, to the collections of doodles she has on her website, I think you'll love her imagination and fun world of mutants and creatures.

Professional Illustrator Collaborates
with 4-Year-Old



Disclaimer: This has been all over the internet this weekend. I originally discovered it from a tweet by Anthony (@nedroid) yesterday, but have since seen it posted everywhere from The Verge to This Is Colossal. It's simply too good to pass up and definitely one of my favorite things I've seen this year.

Professional illustrator Mica Angela Hendricks (aka busymockingbird) is really good at what she does, one of them being drawing retro, vintage heads. Recently, she's upped her game by collaborating with a special someone -- her 4 year old daughter.

It started innocently enough with her daughter sneaking in some lines and scribbles to create bodies for the faces.

"Not surprisingly, I LOVED what she drew. I had drawn a woman’s face, and she had turned her into a dinosaur-woman. It was beautiful, it was carefree, and for as much as I don’t like to share, I LOVED what she had created. Flipping through my sketchbook, I found another doodle of a face I had not yet finished. She drew a body on it, too, and I was enthralled. It was such a beautiful combination of my style and hers. And she LOVED being a part of it. She never hesitated in her intent. She wasn’t tentative. She was insistent and confident that she would of course improve any illustration I might have done. …And the thing is, she DID."



Later, Mica would use her talents to go back and add color, paint and details to bring the improvised collaboration to life. The results are jaw-dropping. I still can't get over how well their two talents mesh together. Read her original post that details the entire process and if you'd like, she's even put up a bunch of the final prints for sale at Society6.

The Collaborations of The Yok and Sheryo



The Yok and Sheryo are one of the best collaborative duos working today. Their characters can be found on walls all over the world, from their home base in New York to Cambodia, Singapore, Vietnam, Australia, Thailand and Mexico (just to name a few). Their individual styles complement each other so well, and their work is a great example of how two artists can evolve together and influence one another through ongoing collaboration. To see more of their murals, drawings, and paintings, visit theyok.com and sheryoart.com.

Collabs with Boyd Shropshire

Boyd Shropshire is a talented graphic designer, musician and artist. He's also one of my old friends from the UF design program, my roommate when I moved to NYC, and frequent collaborator since 2005.

Our first collabs happened accidentally. While drawing on the same piece of paper, he crossed out what I had done and wrote some words on top of it. I think that unlocked something in my mind, that the drawings weren't precious. They could be fast, loose, weird and free. These pieces of paper lead to large-scale ink drawings, a two-person art show called Vernacular Shlamacular, collaborative sketchbooks, collages, songs, and creating the artwork for Kurt Vile's album "Childish Prodigy" on Matador Records.







Our two distinct styles created a third style, where you couldn't tell who did what. But the overall feel of the stuff we made was that we really didn't care what anybody thought about it. The important thing was to make the work.

Drawing is usually a very solo process. Just you, your sketchbook and pen. But I think collaborations are essential to revealing parts of your work that you didn't know existed. It's also awesome when you get to draw with your friends.

For Boyd's art and design, check out www.boydshropshire.com. He also runs a label with his girlfriend Cassandra called Wonderland Archives, where you can find his music alongside some other great artists.

Doodle Bug Jessica Clark

I draw the greatest inspiration from the people around me. For the month of May, I'm going to ask one of my buddies to send me a drawing/doodle to highlight for each post.

My first buddy is my best buddy: Jessica Clark is my partner, roommate and collaborator and all-time favorite person in the world. She sent me the above doodle to include.

Jessica is a designer and artist, too.

We live in a house in South Austin where we make all sorts of things and collaborate with other artists on zines and art shows under the moniker Crummy House. We're taking a break from the collaborations to focus on our own work for a bit, but we'll be back in action later this year.

Here are a couple photos of some of my favorite collaborations:





Jessica and I enjoy spending time with our friends, family and two cats, Clem and Moose.

Welcome to My House



One night about a year ago I met with Conrad (who was already sharing a studio with Guim) and Chamo for a Gin and Tonic session. All of us worked from home at that moment and we all agreed that it was becoming very boring. I don't know if it was the Gin or the night itself, but after a few rounds it occurred to us to set up a studio.

Now, we are six people (including graphic designer Jordi and record label "The Indian Runners" who joined shortly after).

That's how Tocafusta was born. We all work as independent freelancers but always finding ways to collaborate with each other and discover common objectives. We look for new projects, collaborations with interesting people, and above all try to help each other as much as we can.

It's great to come here to work everyday. It really has become my second little family.
