If you’re in the mood for silly illustrations, puns, and a generally funny dude you should check out Marc Johns. This is his illustration, “A New Trend in Chesthair”.

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.

This is what I look like. Pretty much.

Painting (of me, but unfortunately not really) by Ben Tour Via Design Sponge.

Steve Kim

April 1, 2011

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

March 29, 2011

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.

Artwork (from top to bottom) created by Jen Collins and Caitlin Shearer and Adara Sánchez Anguiano.

Water Sport

I have literally been aching to paint again. I could never choose a favorite medium, but paint, oh you are a heart breaking-ly delicious one.

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.

Eyes Open

November 23, 2010

I can’t sleep.

My dad always told me to just stay in bed and close my eyes, it didn’t matter if I was wide awake. Of course, I always fell asleep then. Tonight I feel like I’m on the edge of something. Tonight I feel like going to sleep would be giving in. I could try to clean my house and get a lot done, but I probably shouldn’t. I probably should go back to bed and close my eyes. Tomorrow isn’t a big day, tomorrow isn’t an anything day, but I feel restless like Christmas eve.

Here is an amazing video that has been all over the place but is so awesome that I don’t think you’ll mind seeing it again.

Mural/video by Supakitch and Koralie. Makes me want to collaborate.

Pretty Broken

November 3, 2010

This is how I felt yesterday. Smashed, but not the good and tipsy kind. Being an adult is hard! Painting by Eli Horn, via Boooooooom.

Wild Ol’ Fuzzball
