Somewhere in the City

I am surrounded by some extremely talented people and I'm a lucky girl for it. Alvaro Naddeo is an Art Director originally from São Paulo, Brazil and now lives in New York. Some random facts about him: He is extremely hard working and punctual, he takes the 6 train every day, and his sketchbooks are wonderful - wonderfully simple. He captures his daily experiences in the city with only black ink - buildings, food, receipts - and there you have it.

In Good Company

Just don't ask E.A. Small to do your portrait. Her unforgiving pen depicts moles, wrinkles, lots of bad hair, and perhaps the largest collection of ugly sweaters around. Her art is as unpretentious as her cast of characters, but just as entertaining.

Heart Music Video Backdrop

So I spent my bank holiday Saturday with my good friend from olden days Mr. Ash Dando. He is a wonderfully talented art director who helped me to draw a massive heart thing for use as a backdrop on a colourama.

It only took us about 12 hours but we got there!
We are filming the video on Thursday for the new up and coming little artist SPARK.

Check out some of me pics of the work in progress.

August's Guest Contributor: Tom Hovey

My first experience of Tom Hovey was an interesting one, and that is exactly how I would describe his work, too. Our first few conversations included topics like John Prescott as a father figure, locking artists inside a cupboard, and how he thought I was a man. He is a self-proclaimed ink addict and describes his work as "beautifully, ugly people." We are excited to have him as our new guest contributor for the next month.

Help us welcome the often inappropriate and highly talented Tom Hovey. Get to know him better, in his own words.

Take Me With You

Last week I took my little brother to the movies to see Iron Man 2. He's only five, so he's growing so much every day. During the big fight scene, he pulled at my arm and (speaking some with his little open mouth, but mostly with his huge blue eyes), whispered something like "Lisa, I am so glad this is not in 3D".

That's something that happened last week. And as much as the moment fills me up, I know the specialness of it doesn't read so good to a third person. So when I crawl into the comic drawings of Aidan Koch, I wonder how he does it.

I wonder how he can take something as elusive as a moment, and neatly wrap it up in a page of loose, inky marks and quiet grey lines. Is there a secret technique to not just show someone what happened, but pull them into it with you?

I'll leave my thoughts in the comments, because they'll be as good as yours....

Lots of Black

I've been so busy the last few weeks that I've barely had time to breathe. From moving to last-minute trips and trying to keep up with my own personal work, I've been a bit nonexistent on DA. But here's something to make up for the lost time. You'll be impressed.

A few weeks ago, I purchased "Elephant," a truly wonderfully crafted art and visual culture magazine from the U.K. (Really, there's no competition so run out and get it!) In it, I found the work of Bruno 9li. His work is intense, to say the least, and it is evident he lives in his own world, a bold and beautiful one. I would love to get lost in that world even though I'd be a little afraid. I'd walk around with one eye closed the whole time, but with a humongous smile on my face.

No Whitespace

The moleskine pages from Maykel Nunes are consumed with doodles from corner to corner. The ink literally bleeds to the end of each spread and the content completely differs on every page turn.

The presentation of the work is simply wonderful too, as the context of each photo; from coffee beans to playing cards, make for great backdrops. Well done Maykel. See some selects »
