Bold Shapes That Demand Your Attention



There's so much to like about the black and white spreads in Tyler Keeton Robbins's sketchbook. It's like having monochromatic dreams of symbols and patterns. His stark palette, gradients, archetypes, and organic shapes are intended to play in our collective unconscious. "Drawing, painting, or creating anything with impatient urgency," Tyler writes, "allows ideas to evolve before they're corrupted by reason."

Beyond the psychology, his sketchbook art is just plain stunning. I'm mesmerized by how he's created meaning and intricacy and depth with extreme limitation of color, shape, and space. You want to check this out.

Type & Time: Drawn Typewriters



The sound is seductive: typebars striking ink ribbon; the bell of the carriage return swinging left. In my selective nostalgia, typewriters were never used by anyone except authors - typing stoically in a room with light filtered through plantation shutters, in the company of scotch glasses and a wastebasket of crumpled pages.The typewriter embodies a writing process that is hard and stark and dirty and mechanical. Itís a symbol of the beauty of process, the struggle of wordsmithing. And so my love for the typewriter is also a love for its aesthetic. I am giddy for illustrations of vintage typewriters, drawings where you can almost smell time and dust preserved. Here are some of my favorites.

Super Sweet Jay Geurink

Jay Geurink, a good homie down here in Austin is also a rad maker of sorts. He works with found objects and wooden pieces to form colorful, often animal related works. His detail with a paintbrush is pretty killer and his type work is top notch in my books.



Jay also collaborated with Jessica and myself on a Crummy House zine in the past and has contributed to many art projects in the past. He also kitty sits our cats when we go out of town, so he's A-plus in our books.

Sur Alert!

Bangkok illustrator Suralert jirawangsoís women inhabit an inked, abstract world of green spruce trees, coffee-cup-rainbows, lipstick, and mushrooms. Iíve tried-- I canít pick a favorite. His drawings layer patterned wallpaper, geometric shapes, hand-drawn type, and a confounding control of color. How do you say love in Thai?

All You Gotta Do Is Repeat After Me

As a kid, did you ever have one of those posters on your bedroom wall with the letters of the alphabet? What did yours look like? It's been a few years (I mean, ahem... quite a few years) since I mastered my ABC's, but I still love seeing all the letters of our alphabet lined-up together. And since I'm pretty sure that my first alphabet poster was in plain old Comic Sans, here's something a bit more playful for today's letter-learners... and alphabet-enthusiasts!

And now for the rest of my selects:

Keep Feeling Fascination

I think I'm obsessed with the doodles, drawings and hand-drawn type of Stephanie Kubo. It's hard to describe her work because it seems she can do almost anything.



She doodles beautiful and colorful hoops, loops and circles with an almost infinite compulsion.



Then you'll discover she draws women wearing the most fascinating and intricate head wear.



The best part, her control of eye-popping hand-drawn lettering that look as if they were enhanced in high-definition. And it doesn't just end there either, visit her site for everything else. Big love Steph.

Sketch Diaries

We've been featuring the inside of some good sketchbooks lately. If it gets us excited, we go with it.

Jordan Kay doesn't draw per page. She draws spreads. And in each of these spreads, she plays with shape, color, type, chicken scratch, what have you. What I like most is seeing the stroke of her marker in each object that she draws. So much personality in a tiny book.
