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”.
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.
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.
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.
