Spending 2.5 Hours In a Sketchbook

I've always thought that a handy formula for creative success (on any given project) is to give yourself specific constraints to work through. Having limits to work around often kickstarts your creative momentum, and the results can be fantastic. Indian artist Vishnu M Nair bought a small red sketchbook and decided to fill all the pages in one sitting. By the time he reached the back cover of his brand new sketchbook, Vishnu had created 29 illustrations in about 2 hours. NICE.

Maybe some of you doodlers out there should take this challenge on next time you feel the intimidating stare of the blank page.

There's Something About These Drawn Girls

There's something about these girls. They are calm and composed, not a hair out of place-except sometimes their entire head is misplaced. These black and white scenes are drawn with only pencil and pen, always in a way that is strange and creepy without ever reaching gruesome. Her girls look so peaceful in their settings that it sometimes took me a moment to notice the one surreal detail that is off about the image. Visit Virginia Mori's blog to peak into more of her unsettling world.

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.

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.

Craving a Hug Right Now

Mmm, that looks cozy. I found myself thinking that repeatedly while looking through this series of drawings. Each girl is wrapped up tight in an embrace with an animal friend or with herself. Even though there are cutesy elements to every sketch, they seem drowned out by a looming sense of loneliness. Who knew hugging animals in sweaters could be so gloomy?

Ani Castillo describes drawing as catching her anxieties like butterflies and pinning them down to a piece of paper so she can see them a little bit more clearly. I couldn't have said it more eloquently myself.

Primal Drawings and Falling Limbs

Piotrs work is pretty and primal. The artist's rural, folk-art sensibility is expressed in the masks and dense tribal and geometric patterns. Reminiscent of wood block prints or cave paintings, his work tells a rugged tale about nature and human nature. Visit his website for more.

Featured Artist #21: Greg Kletsel

Greg Kletsel is a drawing machine. In all seriousness, I believe he must be built of metal and moving parts with at least one robotic arm and an infinite supply of ink. That's the only thing that could explain the amount of work he outputs.

I met Greg a thousand years ago when he interviewed at the studio I worked at. The position didn't play out, but I liked his drawing skills and asked if he'd draw up an idea I had for a t-shirt. That's how Tools of the Trade was born (it's still one of my favorite tees).

Today, Greg is a full-time illustrator and designer based in Brooklyn, New York who's rocking it on the illustration scene. Cranking out zines, comics, posters, and all while filling up sketchbook pages by the minute. I have tons of respect for Greg and so it made perfect sense to feature his work in an exclusive drawn interview. He of course did not take the task lightly and simply blew our minds away with his drawn responses to each question. Check out the detail, line work and thought behind each drawing. Wow!
