Kimmo Oja: Lots and Lots of Lines

I know what it's like to get lost in a repetitive action, that smoothing feeling of doing the same small motion over and over. When I look at these drawings by Kimmo Oja, I wonder if he chooses his imagery based on achieving that same feeling. The result is a dizzying amount of precise lines and strokes to create striking environments. But within each of these drawings, there is one peaceful object that stands alone and unaffected by the tangled setting: a bear, a line of trees, an owl, a wolf.

Tumblr of the Week: SASHALYNILLO's Continuous One-Line Drawings

"From this morning's train ride: Here's one long, continuous line drawing. It was hard to do when people sitting next to me were getting on and off at their stops."

That's a caption on one of SASHALYNILLO's drawings (shown above) that caught my attention. It was mind-blowing to find out that some of his sketches are drawn without lifting the pen from the paper until the picture is complete. An image of what appear to be train passengers that I would have rated as just 'pretty cool' seconds ago suddenly seemed extremely interesting and worth sharing right away. Here is another one-liner I felt similarly about.

I can imagine the zen-like process of trying this out, learning to go with the flow and not turn back to pick at details. It's a cool idea for doodlers to give a shot next time you're having artist's block. SASHALYNILLO is an artist based in the Bronx who thrives on sketching in moleskines. His pen sketches are simplistic and highly stylized at the same time, and usually based on images from daily life or political subjects. Here are some of my favorites from his doodles made on trains.

I've Got a Blank Space

Omar Chamorro C. doodles between the lines. His drawings are entirely composed of countless tiny straight black lines squeezing and flowing together to create striking silhouettes. The amount of detail it must take to create one of these is surprising considering that the subjects lie in the negative space, the part of the page with the least detail. You need to see the images in high detail on Omar's blog. Go!

Sketchbook: A Year in Jerusalem

Ever feel homesick for a place you're not even from? I never visited Jerusalem, but these drawings feel like old memories of somewhere I haven't been yet. The artist is Vincent Mahé, a Parisian who spent a year in Jerusalem and brought it back with him in a sketchbook. His sketches include the big touristy sites everyone knows, but also the empty streetsides and tops of buildings that you don't normally see in photos. There's something captivating about the simple lines—-the way he creates shadows with them, the way the drawing seamlessly becomes less detailed the further away from the focus point.

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 can’t explain it, it’s that magnetism that pulls me to the illustrations of Gabriel Huici. I counted no short of 17 umbrellas. I don’t inherently love umbrellas. His line work is sparse. I don’t 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.

Everything is Connected by Drawn Lines

I recently discovered Saimon Chow's work and now I'm infatuated with it. All day long, with the visual bombardment the internet provides, it's hard to come across something that truly captures your attention and is unique enough to deserve it.

Saimon is an accomplished artist and designer out of New York with a full portfolio of illustration styles, but it's his one-color drawings that won me over. They're a collision of opposite cultures, made with bold strokes and drowning in symbolism. I especially enjoy how he connects elements in the drawings with thin lines, leading us through a visual narrative.

Drawing the Cityscape in His Head

Bricks, windows, arches, curves, angles, roofs... you name it, if it's part of the city architecture, it's very likely Daniel Van Der Noon has drawn it.

Everything about his art inspires me. They are all hand-drawn and inked directly onto a wall, window, or canvas. No prior sketching or mapping. It's just one stroke here, another line there and soon enough buildings and rooftops appear.

In his own words, "I like to travel a lot, visit new cities, see new places, hear new noises. Through these skylines I guess that the perks that I experience from traveling around are amplified in ink, and the memories recorded in these ongoing sprawls of images and text."

You'll find plenty to like in the following images, and I guarantee you'll especially enjoy the process videos after the fold.
