Stacey Rozich’s Paintings Are a Pattern-Filled Cultural Mash Up

I’ve fol­lowed the work (and admired) of Stacey Rozich for years. I think it was since she was fresh out of school, but who knows. Either way, it’s always inter­est­ing to see how one’s work evolves over time. Rozich’s work still focuses heav­ily on pat­tern, masks, and draw­ing inspi­ra­tion from folk­lore, but now incor­po­rates a con­tem­po­rary cul­tural mash […]

Kevin Lucbert’s Mysterious, Monochrome Drawings

These mys­te­ri­ous draw­ings by French artist Kevin Lucbert pique my curios­ity. They are a lit­tle strange, hint­ing at another world beyond what we can see. The artist uses blank space to his advan­tage and the fully-colored areas only make it look more unusual in com­par­i­son. From a for­mal stand­point, I’m really impressed by the visual interest […]

Harriet Lee-Merrion’s Quietly Strange Illustrations

Har­riet Lee-Merrion is an illus­tra­tor who’s based in Bris­tol, UK. Her quiet illus­tra­tions are minimalist-style draw­ings that fea­ture a lot of soli­tary fig­ures and deserted spaces. Even when they are bustling scenes, every­one and every­thing still feels like they are on their own. I love the odd and sur­real qual­i­ties in her work. The illus­tra­tions aren’t overtly strange, […]

My Studio: Sketches for an Embroidery and Prints

I try to make it a habit to not spend my week­day evenings on the com­puter. Some­times, of course, it’s unavoid­able, but after a long day I just wanna draw or embroi­der. You might recall my lat­est embroi­dery of a flo­ral hand. Con­tin­u­ing on this theme, I’m work­ing on some sketches with new flow­ers. Everything […]

Lili Scratchy’s Drawings Jump Off the Page and Become Ceramics

It’s safe to say that for years, YEARS, I have cov­eted the work of Lili Scratchy. There are a lot of things I like about her work, but must of all adore the style of her col­or­ful char­ac­ters. They are uncon­ven­tional and imag­i­na­tive, and I’ve always been impressed how well her work trans­lates from draw­ings to […]

In Gary Kachadourian’s Drawings, You Are The Character

Gary Kachadourian is a Baltimore-based artist who takes over rooms and cre­ates site-specific instal­la­tions with his draw­ings. I was able to stand in the mid­dle of his work years ago when he was the recip­i­ent of the Mary Sawyers Baker Prize and had his work exhib­ited at the Bal­ti­more Museum of Art. And, let me just […]

Jonas Löfgren Wields The Mighty Pencil to Illustrate Surreal Scenes

I’ve fea­tured graphite draw­ings once this week (see Josephin Ritschel), so how about some more? Jonas Löf­gren is a Swedish artist who uses the medium to craft images that are somber, sur­real, and over­all haunt­ing. The del­i­cate works give us a glimpse into a story where the pro­tag­o­nist is often a young girl.  We can’t be […]
