Daniel Jamie Williams



All of the eyes in Daniel's drawn characters are deep, and almost completely lost in sadness. They're consistent throughout his work, holding your stare and carrying you from one piece to the next.

Click on through, there's a really great time-lapse video of Daniel working his watercolor pencils after the fold.

Freaky Deaky

Taking a peek into Jesse Balmer's sketchbook is like stumbling upon an alternate dimension. His drawings feature bizarre environments and even more bizarre creatures inhabiting them. Sometimes you'll see exciting action sequences frozen mid-scene, or beast-like characters with just enough peculiar details on them to make you imagine what their story could be.

Rad Dudes from LAND



Ryan Rhodes and Caleb Owen Everitt work as a company called LAND. I can't really say enough about these guys, they're good friends and rad dudes all around. Plus they make some of the coolest work I've seen in ages. Their sketches are very classic in nature and reminiscent of a simpler time.





These dudes do some great branding work, but my love for them lies in their hand drawn artwork and graphics. See more »

Mark It Up

Ken Garduno, from Los Angeles, California, is amazing at his craft. But instead of showing his final, polished pieces, we want to highlight his more rough sketches.

Sometimes you need nothing more than some black ink and a sheet of paper (and possibly Ken's hand). The line is a beautiful thing.

Seas of Graphite

Wherever the work of Melissa Castrillón may take us, we are never far from her delightfully rotund subjects. Melissa has a light hand that is slightly unsteady, which gives the feel that there is constant motion in her illustrations.

She’s able to translate many of her sketches into finished illustrations, which can be a hard middle ground to find - you want it to look finished, but still want to maintain the spontaneity and freshness that comes from sketching and creating on the fly. I think for Melissa, she’s able to communicate a sense of control (in her compositions, handling of graphite) yet with her mark-making still retain the qualities that make sketchbooks so wonderful.

A Tiny Red Book of Love

You may know Chris Battle for his illustration work on rambunctious TV shows like The Powerpuff Girls, Dexter's Laboratory and Samurai Jack, among others. It's easy to see why; his cartoon talent is a natural fit, but what you may not know is Chris' more sensitive side.

On a past Valentines, Chris bought his wife a little bound red sketchbook, and every day he filled its miniature pages with random characters and thoughts. The result is a witty and adorable itsy-bitsy book of love and doodles, be prepared to be swooned.

Going Postal

Every now and then I enjoy a fun trip down memory lane. This time, my travels were courtesy of Danny Martin and his movie characters drawn on US Postal Service stickers. I'm loving the texture the stickers added to the black and white drawings of some of my favorite movies from when I was a teenager (The Thing, Big Trouble in Little China, Ghostbusters) as well as a recent favorite (There Will Be Blood). Go take a gander, no postage stamp required.
