Showcase #18: The Essential Draw

Everyone has played the game: what would you take with you if you could only bring along one thing? We all have something, something essential or entirely superfluous, something kinky or sentimental, something cerebral or trashy. Out with it. What's your thing?

In this challenge we ask that you draw something you wouldn't leave behind. Wait! Before you get to it, it MUST be something that could fit in a backpack. You're confined only by the size of your item, nothing else. Deadline May 23rd by 4pm EST, go here for complete submission details »

Draw your thing, your take-along, and win this incredible backpack to hold it. Trust me, you'll want to get your hands on this, because the folks at TOM BIHN design and make each product with tremendous craftsmanship, and all within the U.S.

Milk-Eyed Mender

My talented friend Meera Lee Patel has a wonderful new show on right now at The Brooklyn Collective. The show is a series of watercolours inspired by Joanna Newsom's album, Mil-Eyed Mender.

Here's Meera explaining more about her show... "As I tend to do when a certain piece of music or art strikes my interest, I listened to the album exclusively while creating these works, replaying it about thirty times. These works are infused with Newsom's unusual understanding of the world and my desire to find beauty in everything around me -- in sadness, nature, among complicated and messy terrains."

The show will be hanging in Brooklyn until the end of November. The original pieces can be purchased by emailing Meera direct, and she'll have prints for sale in her Etsy shop.

100 Houses for Shelter

My buddy Paul Roberts is curating the 100 Houses exhibition, which brings together 100 image-makers, from illustrators to street artists, in support of housing and homelessness charity: Shelter. Each artist is given a 10-inch square and the theme "house" to come up with an original piece of art.

The results will be on show in Bristol's Tobacco Factory from November 16th-30th. All of the pieces will be for sale, and hopefully we can raise a significant contribution to the ongoing work of the charity Shelter, which helps people to find and keep a decent home.

A Nice Cup of Teagle

I've been getting really into comics lately, and that's probably one of the reasons that Jack Teagle is quickly becoming one of my favourite artists.

I'm told that envy and jealousy are terrible and pointless feelings, so I try my best to lock them away when I look at Jack's work. It would be easy to envy the way everything he does is awesome, or be jealous that he completely nails that elusive combination of a simplistic style and bold colours, or cry that it all seems so effortless (although I'm sure it's not). But I've found the best thing to do is let the awesome insanity of his work whisk you away into his little world for a while, and just be glad that it exists.

Jack seems to churn out work at a crazy pace, and he's been updating his tumblr this week with these new paintings. They're part of a show called Lost Plot at Here Gallery in Bristol, UK. The show opens on September 7th and runs right through to October 6th.

Lost Plot also features work from Liam Barrett, Rose Robbins and Simon Daly. If you'll be in or around Bristol in the next month you should definitely check it out.

TTYL, KIT!*

Hey everyone! It is the last day of the month, and that means this is my last post as guest contributor for August!

It has been a lot of fun writing about comics, drawings, painted books, and more. It has also been great interacting with the DA community at large, and will be something I continue in the future. So, look around for me!

Before I go, I wanted to share with you a couple pictures of my work, all in progress stuff. I work with collage and embroidery, and really love interior scenes (remember how I mentioned "slice of life" in my last post?). So, here’s a sneak peak of a series I will be launching in a few weeks with the site Buy Some Damn Art. Check it out - Kate Singleton curates lovely shows with original art you can afford.

*Talk to you later, keep in touch!

Dollar Dollar Bills

It's not often you can slip someone a single dollar bill and get something awesome in return. That $1 tip might get you a casual nod from the cute bartender. Or maybe an ice-cream cone on your way home from work?

Or... how about this. You give a one-dollar note to 100 New York artists and see what they do with it. That's what the gents behind the "One Hundred Dollars" exhibition did. And don't get me wrong, I love an ice-cream cone as much as the next kid, but this currency art is a little more special for a dollar, don't you think?

The exhibition is on until August 9, if you're in New York. Otherwise, just take a peek at our favourites here. You don't even have to slip us a buck.
