Fine Lines, Mustached Men, & Rain Drops



Why are we drawn to certain styles, to specific aesthetics? Taste is a peculiar, and tenacious thing. And although I canít explain it, itís that magnetism that pulls me to the illustrations of Gabriel Huici. I counted no short of 17 umbrellas. I donít inherently love umbrellas. His line work is sparse. I donít inherently love sparse line work. But, I love his pieces. Every one. There is a touch of vaudeville; there is a touch of hipster. The fine lines are so intentional and terse they create suspense- like listening to a pregnant pause or waiting on a dangling participle.

Interstellar Drawings



I'm very much enjoying the drawings of Jason Hernandez, especially the ones themed around space travel. I love the narrative, it's as if I'm traveling between stars. The drawings generally consist of black ink on yellow paper with accents of gold paint, and the attention to detail in each image is just right. Buckle up and enjoy the cosmos.

Blue Monday



If you're feeling blue this Monday afternoon, simply take a look at the wonderful drawings I discovered in Gosia Herba's sketchbook. A prolific illustrator and graphic designer from Wroclaw, Poland, Gosia makes creating these delightful abstract illustrations look so fun and easy. Visit his Behance portfolio for an endless amount of inspiration.

The Fantastical and Imaginary





One look and I was immediately drawn into the fantastical and surreal world of Estela Cuadro's artwork. Her paintings seem as ink stains caught in a dreamlike state, very often the backdrop to fictional characters, animals, and plants. As she explains (in an interview over at Something You Said), "I like that my art is not exactly real, belonging completely to imaginary worlds ... I think that much of my time is spent connected to my unconscious." See more Ľ

That's Gross, I Love It



Gore, girls, and robots everywhere--I think I'm in love. I tripped over the art of Lauren YS today when I read about her upcoming exhibition, "Behind You." I was instantly hooked in by the in-your-face girliness dripping with attitude. Her portfolio is gushing with colors that remind me of rainbow swirl ice cream, deceptively sweet at first glance until you start noticing all the nasty little details.

*Make sure to to watch her video after the fold, where she flips through 4 complete years of sketchbook drawings from her Moleskine.

Intricate Drawings on Wood



I was immediately drawn to Camellie's handmade drawings on wood. Originally from Romania, now living and working in the UK, Cami's aesthetic pulls hard. Her intricate ink on white acrylic complements the texture of the wood. The grain patterns, rough edges, and fibrous composition of bark frames her starkly beautiful illustrations, and the contrast is just plain lovely.

Greg's Friday Links

I've seen Okat post a "Links Friday" on DA in the past, so I thought I'd put together some stuff I've found to be very helpful over the years. Some of these have been floating around the internet for a bit, so my apologies if you've already seen them (I threw in some newer stuff as well). Hopefully there is something here that will inspire you and your work.

Watch legendary graphic designer Milton Glaser talk about the fear of failure and how it relates to the life of an artist (I try to watch this about once a month). Some process advice and thoughts on idea generation from illustrators Jillian Tamaki and Nate Williams. For the digital doodler, amazing photoshop brushes available for purchase from Kyle T. Webster and Ray Frenden. Josef Albers's Interaction of Color is now an interactive iPad app. Learn about The Tools Artists Use. The latest issue of art magazine Kingbrown is out now and available for purchase here. I'm a big fan of illustrator Sam Weber's podcast Your Dreams My Nightmares. And finally, an old interview with a young Maurice Sendak in his New York studio.
