Don't Cry Over Spilled Coffee Doodle Over It!

Make something of your mistakes. That’s what Giula Bernadelli does, and the results are delectable. When her food is knocked over, she goes with the flow and creates stunning images using her fingers, utensils, or food instead of brushes. Plates, cups, and tablecloths are the canvas for her delicious doodles made with coffee, honey, ice cream, wine, fruit, nutella… Nothing on the table is safe! You can’t even be mad over the mess made when it's this visually remarkable. The finished results look so good, it’s wild to think they started out as a shapeless stain. Follow @bernulia on instagram if you wanna watch this coffee+doodle addict keep playing with her food.

Javier Perez: Drawing Inspiration

I was recently asked to participate in a drawing contest hosted by Udemy. The theme is based around the work of Javier Perez, who creates clever drawings built upon simple objects around him.

For my own drawing, I dug through my desk drawer at work and saw a fish peering back at me from a roll of correction tape.

While I’m not sure I was too true to the minimal nature of the drawn element of this creation, I did find the process and result very rewarding! This contest was a fun exercise in challenging my regular technique by inserting something foreign, and figuring out a way to incorporate it and fit into my drawing style.

You can enter the contest, too! Click here to see the details and more examples of Javier’s work, and have fun seeing objects around you in a different way!

Letting Go, Step by Step

"How a graphic artist discovers to free his creativity and have fun" is the alternate title for journal d’une décomplexion graphique, a record of an ongoing journey in letting go of artistic insecurities. A detailed, hand-written note on the blog explains, "I love my job, but I don’t love my work. Few are the projects which I feel proud of and would like to put in a book." Crushed by deadlines from time-consuming jobs, over years this artist began to feel their sense of creativity shriveling. When do I have fun in all this? Stuck behind a computer all day with no chance to mess around and then coming home too tired to do anything, there was a growing fixation on the idea of taking a pen or pencil to paper.

People Paper Shapes



I recently participated in a collage contest, and at times felt like I was all thumbs while trying to cut out tiny slivers of paper at just the right size. In her piece Citypass Jerusalem, Iris Kost has mastered the technique of embracing the non-perfection that comes with the process of cut-out paper shapes, all the while making it look whimsical, simple, and adorable. Her characters all have such expression and uniqueness, and I love the bright color palette. Iris makes the experience of riding the train into a lovely, pleasant one, one where you just might meet someone as interesting and creative as Iris.

Iris Kost does more than paper art check out her website and Flickr!

Art Direction and Adolescence by Alex Citrin

I first stumbled upon Alex Citrin's work through the illustration blog Brown Paper Bag, run by Sarah Barnes. The blog posted about Citrin's freshly published magazine Until Now, a fascinating and poignant collection of essays about coming of age. Each essay is accompanied by beautiful, powerful, and hilarious illustrations by artists from all over.

But beyond her talent as an art director, Alex Citrin's illustrations stand alone as unusual and interesting work I can totally relate to. I particularly love the way she creates a portrait with the dark lines, exaggerated features, and brooding expressions, and how most of the drawing is black and white but with carefully measured additions of color.

Instagram Likes, Pt. 6

I have about 45 random apps installed on my phone and I confess I probably only use five of them regularly. Instagram is in that small group of five. I'm a visual person, so being able to pull a feed of images from folks that inspire me has become a daily pleasure/addiction.

This is another segment for one of my favorite columns on DA. Part six begins with one of my own drawings (at top) and continues to feature things from scribbles to refined illustrations from some very inspiring people. You can click the following links to view the archive: part one, two, three, four, and five.
