Charlie Roberts Draws

Illustration // Monday, February 13, 2012
Oslo, Norway based artist, Charlie Roberts creates heavily detailed works which focus on storytelling. His large-scale works on paper combine multiple figures to create compelling and often hilarious narratives. He has also created a cast of life-sized painted figurative sculptures carved in the gallery from wood with a crude hand axe that were on display at Richard Heller Gallery. Enjoy.

Colin Chillag's Negative Complete

Illustration // Monday, February 13, 2012
Colin Chillag's finished/unfinished works add an interesting element to the imagined final touches of a piece. While sometimes leaving the negative, un-worked space, Chillag creates a balance in the void, allowing the working process to have a presence and ultimately pushing the boundaries of what defines 'complete.'

Elmo Goes Duch

Illustration // Monday, February 13, 2012
Gorgeous new reader submission on the work of my new favorite French illustrator DUCH. While his work may not be for everyone, with gory hints of perverse narrative and raw illustrative line-work, when done right with the right balance of humor, I'm a sucker for it evertime. Thanks DUCH, enjoy x

Matt Leines

Illustration // Sunday, February 12, 2012
Matt Leines is an illustrator currently living and working in Philadelphia. Earning a BFA in Illustration from the Rhode Island School of Design, Leines' work depicts the culture and conflicts of a fantasy world inhabited by mustachioed men, savage beasts, and living architecture, using lines and patterns that seem both intensely primitive and undeniably modern all at once.

Ryan De La Hoz: Studio Visit

Illustration // Saturday, February 11, 2012
I dropped into my friend Ryan De La Hoz's new studio the other day to take a glimpse at what he had been up to, because I knew it had been a lot- and I really just love his work. After being awarded the Beautiful/Decay Wet Paint grant along with a couple other artists: Skinner, Maya Hayuk, Dereck Albeck, etc, Ryan was just hours away from delivering a handfull of pieces to the StumbleUpon offices in SF, among many other things...

Sam Bosma

An incredibly rendered and humorous little short story from Baltimore based illustrator, and all around fun-gi Sam Bosma. 'A fungus spread over a hill as mold grows over bread...

Matthew Craven at Gallery Hijinks

Illustration // Friday, February 10, 2012
I stopped by Gallery Hijinks in San Francisco last weekend for the opening of Matthew Craven's solo show 'FRGMNT'. Craven's gorgeous and cohesive series of mixed media and illustration work in his new '#2 pencil' palette was a beautiful shift from his previous primary color work that i had seen in New York. 'This exhibition aims to form connections between modern life and the lives of those who came before us...

Mafia Playing Cards

Illustration // Friday, February 10, 2012
A deck of cards, illustrated and designed by Moscow, Russia based artist Dima Je. 'Mafia is a party game, modelling a battle between an informed minority and an uninformed majority. Players are secretly assigned roles: either "mafia", who know each other; or "townspeople", who know only the number of mafia amongst them. In the game's "night" phase the mafia covertly 'murder' a townsperson.'

Vacationation

Illustration // Friday, February 10, 2012
Check out this great animated music video from Toronto-based illustrator, animator, and comic book artist Patrick Kyle for the Canadian band Hooded Fang's latest single, "Vacationation," from their 2011 release, "Tosta Mista."

El Neoray

Illustration // Thursday, February 09, 2012
Based in Antwerp, Belgium, illustrator Jeroen Veldkamp (aka El Neoray)'s work is subtly strange and humorous, with soft line work and muted colors that lend a sense of immediacy and informality similar to outsider art. The apparent simplicity of Veldkamp's drawings is visually refreshing, making his quietly subversive work stand out amongst the habitual clutter of the art world.
