Laura Janey Hodkin: Girls in Her Sketchbook

Laura Hodkins and I were two of the twenty-three artists involved the latest Big Scribble project. We drew in the rooms of our dream house, which were then all mashed up with the other artists to build 12 dream house coloring pages. Upon finding more of her work online, I feel that Laura's style is the work of a real, impulsive doodler who can't help but fill up her sketchbook with doodles, random thoughts, and stray lines that may or may not eventually lead to a fleshed-out drawing. I like drawings like these: they aren’t quite happy, they aren't quite sad or scary, but they’re not just emotionless. They're on the verge of being something, and maybe that’s what makes them feel realistic and relatable.

Drawn Expressions on Wood

“A wooden expression” usually describes someone’s face as flat or stoic, but these wooden girls are expressing themselves much more shamelessly than that. Lantomo is an Italian artist with quite the collection of intriguing individuals populating her world of pencil and paint on wood. So many of these portraits look like a snapshot taken during a moment of strange emotion. Each girl almost appears animated, practically coming alive with her intense expressions. Lantomo says her drawings are “a diary of characters caught in the flat surface on which they are created, trying to get free.” Emotions are fleeting, so it feels special to see those split moments of raw feelings captured so evocatively.

Soft Shading, Bold Contrast

Elfandiary’s sketchbook is magic. I’ve been bewitched by the soft shading + sharp geometric cut-outs coming together to make something that is delicate and bold at the same time. Page after page of glamorous people are drawn in a style that is realistic in some parts and sketchy in others. It’s both exciting and elegant! The artist has also posted a few mesmerizing time lapse videos of their drawing process that you can see right here.

She's Out of This World

Incoming swarm of otherworldly girls heading our way! They come from another universe where everything is boldly colored, cats can live in their hair, and clothes are abstract. In Natalie Foss' alternate dimension of color pencils and quirky ladies, everything is simple except your face and hands. It gives me the impression that the girl's face is so captivating to me that I don't see the details of anything else around her. Natalie says she usually finds inspiration in people, music, animals, subcultures, feelings, fashion, thoughts and a good cup of coffee. Have fun spotting a little bit of everything on her website.

Sketching in Series

These sketchbooks are sending me on an adventure. I’m like a paleontologist unearthing gorgeous sea fossils… and… occasionally gorgeous girls. Partly a journal of zoological specimens and partly beauty magazine, Tavo Montañez’ meticulous black lines make it all come together so well I didn’t even question it. He inked up four entire sketchbooks full of cool spreads with his out of control doodling, you can scroll through the whole series on his site or see some of our favorites below.

Tumblr of the Week: Sketchbooking with Fashion and Geometry

Fatma Al-Remaihi loves to draw babes. I have a crush on every one in her sketchbook. There's something so alluring about the consistent pastel color palette over sharp blue ink, which really makes the accessories they wear POP. I can't look away from her stylish boys and girls, drawn with highly detailed faces and dressed in abstract blocks of color. The balance between styles is hypnotic. She makes pretty cool animated gifs too. Read on »

She Doesn't Even Go Here!

Do you remember in Mean Girls, when Crying Girl just wants to bake a cake filled with rainbows and smiles? So many feelings, no place to share them!

Well, these eight lady-pals have a lot of feelings, too. So they decided to collect them all into a rad little zine! Sad Girls features a few of my favourite illustrators, such as Kaye Blegvad and Tuesday Bassen. It's like a cake made of rainbows and smiles, but for your eyes! Haha, maybe not. I don't know. Anyone who's never seen Mean Girls will be wondering what the funk I'm going on about here.

Enough words, bring on the sweet hand-drawn portraits!
