Isn’t it interesting when a drawing is specifically designed to exist on the internet? Xin Sun’s illustrated animations know how to light a spark of wonder. The play between movement and stillness takes each piece up to a new level of incredible and yet the element of motion is often only a tiny piece of Sun’s drawing, a mere waft of smoke or the flicker of a candle. I love her “One Day” series in particular, in which each image describes a different mood. Make sure to check out Xin Sun on tumblr too for even more gif goodness!See More »
Erika Kuhn has some of the most dark, moody and dramatic sketchbooks I've ever seen. It's personal. It's stimulating. It's plenty full of angst and beauty and love and passion. Viewing the images on DA hardly give them justice, as she's always presenting them in the context of her poetic words, so be sure to visit her blog (she writes in Spanish, but Google translate will give you the gist of it).
I am curious what comes first for her. Is it the melodramatic words that accompany and inspire each of her sketchbook drawings or the other way around, with the drawings inspiring the words? To be honest, it doesn't even matter, I am in love.
