The Daily Battles of Mu Pan

Mu Pan is a New York based artist who creates some of the most visually rich work I've ever seen. I was lucky to meet him earlier this year and got a chance to talk about his process, while also getting a glimpse into two of his sketchbooks. Each page of these books can stand alone as a work of art. As a whole, they represent a daily exploration of his life, thoughts, and experiences melded with historical events, cultural icons, symbolism and epic conflict. Mu's art is his life's work, and he's fully committed to pushing it to its farthest limits. There's a lot to see in his paintings and drawings, so make sure you visit his website and blog to fully enjoy the scope and detail of it all.

Matchbook Paintings





These images will make you look twice, and maybe two more times after that. Joseph Martinez paints inside matchbooks with such precision and patience you wont believe it until you watch the video for yourself. The art is often times smaller than the size of a dime.

I can't imagine anything more fascinating than seeing these matchbook paintings in person. Fortunately, those of you in San Francisco will have the opportunity at his upcoming show, A Little Piece of the Bay.

Scroll down, and you'll be asking yourself again and again how he's achieving such depth, shadows and detail.

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.

Detailed Classical Portraits

Have you seen the amazing work of Sagaki Keita? If not, I'm very pleased to introduce to you this very talented Japanese artist. His drawings are composed by a bunch of very small characters, cartoons and shapes, he mixes them with different tones to create the volume of his amazing pieces, entirely made with ink on paper. His masterpieces recreate classical art, greek sculptures and famous paintings. If you are a detail junkie you will definitely enjoy a visit to his website, his work is simply unbelievable.

Pristine and Magical

Sean Alexander's drawings are a breath of fresh air. I'm not kidding. I literally just took a deep breath while looking at his flickr page. They remind me of the very primitive, very simplistic, very beautiful art you see inside art history books. So much detail and craft is put into each drawing. His tools of the trade? Micron pens, stonehedge paper, prismacolor pencils and number 2 pencils.

Get Technical

I, for one, am impatient and always in awe of those who have the ability to add endless amounts of beautiful detailing into a drawing. Check out the work of Oliver Van Der Lugt. He even uses nail polish as one of his tools.

Tendency of Withdrawal

Micah Lindberg's piece for Artism (Art for Autism) is lovely and haunting. Dense, overarching branches encircle and beset a pensive child. The image captures the challenges of social interaction and withdrawal associated with Autism. Powerful and heartbreaking. (Direct link)
