Drawings by Virginia Mori.

* Virginia Mori is an award-winning Italian artist based in Pesaro. She graduated as an Illustrator and Animator from the National Art Institute of Urbino. Her drawings are mostly done with pen or  pencil on paper, and I love them so much! They make me think of the teenage years when the world seems so complex and full of possibilities at the same time. I invite you to visit the artist’s blog to see more of her art. Don’t miss her animations! Images © Virginia...

Daehyun Kim’s Drawings.

Daehyun Kim’s Drawings.

* I have fallen in love with Daehyun Kim‘s drawings. They are all done using black ink on paper. In his own words: ” There is no special reason why I stick to black. I like black for same reason as you like it. It’s simple, strong, beautiful, and just enough.”  I think that what makes Daehyun’s drawings so special is their conceptual depth, combined with the minimal, Zen-like visual resources. He says so much with so little. Staring at his work is like meditation to me. I invite you to visit the artist’s  website to see more of his unique art. Images © Daehyun...

Zachari Logan’s Art.

Zachari Logan’s Art.

  Through drawing and installation practices, Contemporary Canadian Artist Zachari Logan explores the intersections between masculinity, identity, memory and place. Engaging both epic-scale and stylistically-historic techniques, Logan’s meticulous drawings evolve a visual language which speaks to the metaphoric as well as the metaphysical. I invite you to visit the artist’s website for more. Images © Zachari...

Unique Drawings by Amy Earles.

Unique Drawings by Amy Earles.

* Amy Earles has been one of my favorite artists since I first discovered her work many years ago. Her work cannot be categorized with any label because what she does is truly one-of-a-kid. Her paper dolls, paintings and drawings, are all the product of a unique mind and soul. I think that Amy is such a strong visual storyteller. When I look at her characters I see complex stories about characters that live somewhere between childhood and early adulthood. The subtle nature of her creations is mesmerizing. It is impossible not to love what she does. I invite you to visit her website for more. Images © Amy...

Madge Gill’s Art.

Madge Gill’s Art.

* Madge Gill (1882–1961), born Maude Ethel Eades, was an English outsider and visionary artist.  She created thousands of mediumistic works, most done with ink in black and white. The works came in all sizes, from postcard-sized to huge sheets of fabric, some over 30 feet long. The artist claimed to be guided by a spirit she called “Myrninerest” (my inner rest) and often signed her works in this name. What a fascinating story! I invite you to learn more details about Magde Gill here. © Madge Gill  ↓...

Portraits of a Male Model by a Group of 6th Graders.

Portraits of a Male Model by a Group of 6th Graders.

* The other day Bill, Diego, Miro, and I, attended an open house at the university where Natalie goes every Saturday for her art class. The artworks were amazing, but I specially fell in love with these portraits drawn by a group of talented 6th graders. The model is the same person, but notice how each artwork is unique. The artist’s personality comes through each drawing. Photos by me...

Outsider Artist Bill Traylor.

Outsider Artist Bill Traylor.

* “Bill Traylor was born into slavery in 1854 and spent most of his life sharecropping on that same Alabama plantation. Like most blacks of his generation,—the first generation of African American citizens,—Traylor was supposed to farm the land without owning it, know his place, and disappear without leaving footprints. “Traylor, however, left a lot more than footprints. At the height of the Great Depression, now in his 80s and too old to farm, he moved to Montgomery to look for work…and there—homeless, jobless and alone—Bill Traylor started to draw.” -Text from www.BillTraylorcChasingGhosts.com I encourage you to watch the video on the bottom of this post. I think that you are going to love it as much as I did. Bill Traylor is an important artist and such a huge inspiration. Photos © Estate of Bill Traylor ↓ Bill Traylor from Carmen Morrow on...

Life Inside the Head

Life Inside the Head

* Today I want to share these simple drawings from my sketch book. They are about something that we’re all familiar with: the tendency to spend lots of time inside our heads * ↑Here I am going for a underwater diving in the back of my mind, to see what I can find down there. ↑Here I am taking a break to relax and help my mind slow down. All I have to do is try to think about nothing. ↑Here I’m taking myself far away to a place where I have never been. ↑And here I am trying to unfold an idea. These drawings are just for fun, but my idea is to do a series of drawings, paintings or papercuts in the future called: ‘Life Inside the Head’. About all the things that happen inside our busy top. I think that it would make a nice little book...

Red Drawings

Red Drawings

  Here are some red drawings to cheer you up. I love red! The lady on the left added a special pocket  to her puffy skirt so she could carry her pet all over town. The name of her pet is Chiquito and he likes to travel upside down. The lady on the right is learning how to dance on a skateboard while holding a sack of potatoes on her head. It is her favorite exercise for balance. And the dog below the ladies is tasting some exotic plant while feeling lucky for having an extra tail and 2 extra legs. I just made all of that up! But that’s more or less what my children would say if I asked them to describe these drawings...

Drawings in Black and Red

Drawings in Black and Red

  Today I’m sharing some ink drawings that I did with ballpoint pens. I’m thinking that maybe they would look nice on fabric. But talking about fabrics, I have been designing something special for Spoonflower. I can’t wait to share it with you here! It is still a work in progress.                ...
