Itsuko Suzuki

Look at that little white dog swimming to the edge of the pool! Go dog go! If this doesn’t make you want to go swimming then you are a heartless melty ice cream.

Sweet little animal scene by Japanese artist Itsuko Suzuki. I like her childlike painting style, her perspective and the use of pretty flat colours all over the place. Via the insatiable art monster that is Booooooom.

Steve Kim

Paintings by Steve Kim. He has some very interesting work. I’m really drawn to his restraint and geometric emptiness. The selective colour palettes are my favorite, the colour blocking style of painting, the thin narrative lines continually leading your eyes into the sweet spots. I posted about Steve before, but I love how his work is changing.

Sometimes, my interest catches in what the artist leaves out.

Via Booooooom.

It’s in the Strokes

I love seeing the personality of the artist come through in the line work of their drawings. That’s another reason sketchbooks are so exciting. The process, the mistakes, the overlapping ideas… It’s a reminder to experiment and get messy. No one has to see the ugly bits.

Peachy Keeners

Pink elbows and shoulders, pink cheeks and storm clouds. Pretty moody.

‘More than enough’ by New Zealand lady DeerFace aka Devon Smith. One of my favorites.
