Blast Off to Negative Space

I love this series of drawings because they're all about space - both literally in subject, and in design -- through the use of negative space.

These illustrated intergalactic adventures are both dense and airy. The intense and compact scribbled lines are broken up and interplay with the space left blank.

The drawings, depicting an astronaut killing time in space, are more surreal and witty than appear at first glance. Vacuuming the stars like dust, a paint bucket labeled "cosmos"—I can't help but smile at the playfulness. See more illustrations like these (and not like these--he draws plenty of stuff other than astronauts) in P3T3 B3's sketchbook. Even his name is futuristic, how fitting!

I've Got a Blank Space

Omar Chamorro C. doodles between the lines. His drawings are entirely composed of countless tiny straight black lines squeezing and flowing together to create striking silhouettes. The amount of detail it must take to create one of these is surprising considering that the subjects lie in the negative space, the part of the page with the least detail. You need to see the images in high detail on Omar's blog. Go!

Interstellar Drawings

I'm very much enjoying the drawings of Jason Hernandez, especially the ones themed around space travel. I love the narrative, it's as if I'm traveling between stars. The drawings generally consist of black ink on yellow paper with accents of gold paint, and the attention to detail in each image is just right. Buckle up and enjoy the cosmos.

Personal Space, What's That?

I love it when I discover cool stuff like this shared by fellow doodlers on the DA flickr group. This doodler does not waste paper. I feel like monocat's sketches really capture the spirit of spontaneous doodles as almost every inch of the page has something crammed into it.

Even though it may look like a mishmash of unrelated doodles, there's a cool chemistry between the colorful characters as they seem to be reacting to one another and their predicament of being squeezed together and having someone else intrude on their personal space. Enjoy them, I did.

Eyewitness to Space:
Over 1,500 drawings chronicling the American Space Program

I made a styrofoam solar system in 4th grade; I've seen Star Wars. But, it wasn’t until a recent visit to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center that I gave the final frontier much thought.

I meandered through the rocket garden, the Hubble telescope display, and the recreated control room of the ‘50s with its ashtrays and white-collared men calculating in a room of blinking lights. I saw the Falcon 9 launch light up the dark sky en route to the International Space Station. And the elusive concept of space began to take hold. I imagined and contemplated.

And since that visit, I force myself to realize that even on sunny days, irrespective of warm blues and greens, we are floating in silent blackness. These images are part of the Smithsonian’s immense collection of drawings, paintings, and prints chronicling the American space program. Enjoy them, for they, and all our accomplishments, truly are far out!

Super Nature World

One of the many reasons why I wanted to come to Paris was to meet Kinrisu in person. I found out about her work two years ago when I saw her Myspace. The music was very lovely and she had this nice drawing for her profile picture. Then I found her blog with even more drawings, all of them done with a simple felt pen. So, yesterday we met and she gave me this really nice package with her album on a yellow cassette and a little zine that you can find on Papier Gache website. We planned to do an interview about her work, but the time was short. Well, if you listen to her music and follow her blog you will get a pretty good feeling of her work in general. Enjoy!

Lovely Lines

Clean and nice lines from Gwendoline Desnoyers take me back to simplicity of Giotto and Brueghel. She has manage to express so much with so little and her use of empty space is such a lovely thing to see. Using the same simple lines, Gwendoline also makes beautiful collages with a gentle use of colors – just enough to make you feel the elusive space around her characters and shapes. Now, take a look at this wonderful works and try not to like it.

She also has a nice blog where you can find even more amazing works from this young artist.
