What My Daughter Wore - Sketching Tween Street Style

tween style doodle

Young girls don’t get enough credit for their fearless attitude towards how they present themselves. I hadn’t really thought about it until I found @what_my_daughter_wore on instagram, a project by Jenny Williams that documents the daily stylistic choices of tween girls. In an effort to focus more on her art, Williams challenged herself to draw more every day. Being a stay at home mom, she was frequently swarmed by her three kids and their many friends while trying to work. Instead of letting it disrupt her, Williams used the youthful madness as a source of inspiration.

The muses for What My Daughter Wore are not only her daughter, Clementine, but also her female friends. These color pencil drawings expressively capture the enthusiastic creativity each girl puts into self-expression through her appearance. Jenny Williams has said that the "focus is the tween years, because at that age it’s still possible to find kids dressing entirely for themselves, without regard for trends or peer pressure." It's true that whether their outfit looks zany or chic, the drawn girls are unselfconcious and unpretentious in a way that comes as a breath of fresh air. If you love these spunky style chronicles, check out the What My Daughter Wore book !

Unsettling Black And White Dreamscapes

There are two types of reactions to seeing the grotesque: turning away or moving in closer. I am the second type, which is why I’ve spent so much time staring at Nicole Sofia’s illustrations. Bold and delicate shading coexist skillfully in this Argentinian artist’s warped dreamscapes. Versatile lines create a sense of gesture and motion overflowing with a raw sensuality that unsettles you with its fleshy, malformed anatomy. Manifestations of bodily insecurities, perhaps. If you follow Sofia’s linework closely you can appreciate what unusual paths the pencil took to create her own version of human(ish) forms in darkly oneiric settings.

Delicately Drawn Women with Fierce Beasts

drawn girl with wolf

The lines Andrea Hrnjak draws are so gentle and light, these images seem to be the definition of ethereal. Glamorous girls in fashion editorial poses caress wild beasts with a softness that casts predators in a loving light. As an animal enthusiast myself, I found these images instantly relatable on a personal level. They visualize a strong connection to the wild, spiritually or emotionally. The women look empowered by their majestic companions too. Just like the animal she intertwines with, each one holds herself with the silent confidence that beautiful beings may also be fierce in their nature. Which animal do you channel your power from?

Crystal balls, ouija, magic circles… Is this a sketchbook or a spellbook? Emma Black pulls art and occult together in a hypnotic style. There’s something in the cryptic imagery that makes it come off more spiritual than spooky. Again and again I find myself mesmerized by her ritualistic repetition of geometric patterns and shading in thin, straight lines. Her series of animal sketches has the same magical undertones, where in pencil she draws the natural, then adds an element of the unnatural in red. It’s a compelling sketch style that’s simplistic and mystic. 

You can follow Emma Black on instagram to keep up with her witchy business.

Simple Lines with Such Great Meaning

Art that sticks to the basics is often the most compelling. When I found these doodles by an illustration student named Laurel, I lost track of time and scrolled through months and months of drawings before I realized how deep I had gone. Many of her drawings are childlike, but each rough line was drawn with purpose. The best for me are her series of giant girls wandering the world, sitting on waterfalls and poking your house.

It's National WHAT Day?

Did you know that April 14th was National High As You Can Reach Day? I can't believe I forgot, but hopefully I accidentally celebrated by reaching up at some point. I'll never miss an obscure holiday again now that I follow National What Day, a recently formed blog with a catchy idea. Last month, Thoka Maer moved from Berlin to New York and dove straight into appreciating American culture by doing something special for all of the national appreciation days. She posts almost-daily animated pencil drawings relevant to which National _____ Day it is. Whether it's pennies, pencils, or specific foods—I'm excited to see Maer's daily reminders to celebrate the little things!

Inner Thoughts In Neon Pencil

Something eerie is happening. Ines Jakovljević's drawings are intensely personal and yet creepily inhuman. There's elements of biology textbook illustrations gone wrong, or gross-looking creatures found in the black depths of the sea. Enigmatic phrases are incorporated into the pictures, most of which sound to me like those nasty inner thoughts whispered to yourself in your head. These drawings have a bewitchingly sweet palette of vibrant neon and pastel colors, an unexpected choice for the gory visual details. I've been hooked and keep on diving deeper into Ines' color penciled inner world.
