Daniel Jamie Williams



All of the eyes in Daniel's drawn characters are deep, and almost completely lost in sadness. They're consistent throughout his work, holding your stare and carrying you from one piece to the next.

Click on through, there's a really great time-lapse video of Daniel working his watercolor pencils after the fold.

Make Comics with Josh Bayer

Josh Bayer is a prolific cartoonist, independent publisher and teacher based in New York City. I took Josh's Comics and Cartooning class in Brooklyn last year and learned a ton about the history of comics, ranging from early newspaper strips to Marvel's Golden Age to the alternative comics being made today. He also taught us his process, storytelling, drawing and inking techniques, and encouraged us to make our own comics using a number of different methods.

One of the best things about the class was being able to see Josh's sketchbooks in person. He usually works on a bunch of projects at once, over multiple sketchbooks. The pages are as intense as the drawings themselves. Layers of corrections, obsessive hatching, watercolor, and ink carved into the paper. Josh lives and breathes comics, and his artwork reflects that dedication and craft.

I had a really difficult time choosing just a few images to share here from the mountains of work he's created over the years. For more of Josh's drawings and comics, go to his tumblr, portfolio site, and online store. His latest comic is the amazing Raw Power 2.

Sonni's World

Sonni is an Argentine artist currently based in Brooklyn. I first met him on a family trip to Buenos Aires in 2008. He was painting a huge mural in preparation for one of his solo shows, and I immediately dug his style. We met again in NY last year, and I was able to catch up with everything he's been working on.



This guy is a machine of creativity. Paintings, installation, sculpture, comics, design, illustration, huge outdoor pieces, animation, he does everything. Yet the content for all of these different mediums begins with his drawings. Sonni's iconic characters live in a world from our youth, where simple shapes and primary colors form giant boomboxes, musical instruments, pencils and paint. When I look at his work, I feel the need to grab my art supplies, put on some music and start making things along with his characters.

Sonni's art is a great example of how your drawings and ideas can evolve into any medium, creating a massive and cohesive visual language. For more, check out Sonni Studios. He's also on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

The Woods at Play



Sarah Nicolas Williams was born in the wilderness of Vermont and raised in Virginia's Shenandoah valley. The woods of her childhood seep into her graceful indian ink and watercolor vignettes and blur the boundaries of her backyard. Sophisticated woodland animals in polished brass buttons enjoy a slice of cherry pie, or recline on a moonlit hammock, with the utmost civility. Soothing images of nature in repose. Brought to you, brought to me, by UncommonGoods.

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.

Pens, Paper, Colored Tape, and Stickers



What can I say? I'm a sucker for this type of art. Naomi Vona is an Italian artist living in Dublin, who reinterprets vintage found photos with simple lines, circles and marks of color. Of course she's not the first to do it, but it always boils down to the composition of the artwork for me and she's got it down quite well. Take a look through her flickr archive to see how her style has evolved.

Great Pal Alexandra Valenti



Alexandra Valenti is a great photographer here in Austin. She can shoot just about anything that moves or doesn't move, too, I guess. But the true artist comes out when she adds her hand work to each photo. Instead of using Photoshop to make the photos amazing, Alexandra prints them and then paints directly on top of them.

She also makes great drawings and doodles, as well. Here are a few below:
