Stylistic Portraits with a Ballpoint Pen



I discovered the drawings of Milton Lozada while browsing through the artists on the Sktchy app (which by the way has been growing into a really great community). Milton is a tattoo artist working out of South Florida, whose style of drawing really came across to me in the portraits he inks with a simple ballpoint pen. To me, they all seem to be referencing a future we have yet to come across.

He's got a nice collection of work to be seen over on his Instagram feed as well.

The Incredible Analog Drawing Machine





Oh my, I am in love with this project by Tobias Gutmann. It's one of the happiest and most creative things I've ever shared here on DA.

The Face-o-mat is a portable drawing booth that Tobias carried around with him 40,000 kilometers through Europe, Africa and Asia, drawing over 700 faces. The booth itself is incredibly designed and built, from the coin slot and style sliders to the clicking carousel of paper simulating a matrix printer. I want to teleport Tobias and his machine over here and have him draw portraits of everyone I know. So cool, especially his unique style of drawing. Enjoy and be sure to watch the video above.

Drawing with Carly Jean Andrews



Carly Jean Andrews is an illustrator and artist based in Brooklyn, New York. We've been friends for a decade now, and I've watched her drawings and artwork evolve and grow throughout that time.

When I look at someone's art, I usually judge what's in front of me, the skill involved in making a specific piece, or the concepts and ideas behind it. I sometimes forget about the thousands of drawings, sketchbook pages, and hours spent defining an original style and point of view. Having followed Carly's work for the past ten years, I see that time and commitment in everything she does. She draws more than anyone I know, and it's evident in her confident linework, unique portraits and exploration of color and figure. These are some of her most recent drawings, and they remind me how your art can change and progress through years of constant practice. I look forward to seeing how this work continues to evolve over time.

Famous Floating Heads



Ben likes to draw buildings on fire, space objects from our favorite movies and often times quirky celebrity portraits. Here are some of my favorite by him and I think he's captured their expressions quite magnificently. Can you name all six popular heads in the comments below?

She Doesn't Even Go Here!

Do you remember in Mean Girls, when Crying Girl just wants to bake a cake filled with rainbows and smiles? So many feelings, no place to share them!

Well, these eight lady-pals have a lot of feelings, too. So they decided to collect them all into a rad little zine! Sad Girls features a few of my favourite illustrators, such as Kaye Blegvad and Tuesday Bassen. It's like a cake made of rainbows and smiles, but for your eyes! Haha, maybe not. I don't know. Anyone who's never seen Mean Girls will be wondering what the funk I'm going on about here.

Enough words, bring on the sweet hand-drawn portraits!

Hellohead Portrait Swap

hellohead was an exhibition held at Cargo London for one night only. 60 top illustrators and designers were randomly paired up to create portraits of each other, and as you can see the results were amazing!







The work was all put on show for the night and a silent auction was held in aid of the National Autistic Society. It looks like it was a great success as they raised over 2,000 for the charity.

The day after the show Zeena Shah and Bread Collective hosted a screen printing and mask-making workshop for children with Autism and Asperger Syndrome. I love seeing art used for such positive means, and there's some great photos of the workshop on Bread Collective's website.
