BLOB, Cécile Dormeau's Illustrations of Quirky Women

Illustration // Wednesday, September 09, 2015
We adore Cécile Dormeau’s illustrations of women, imperfect forms and all. In an interview with Ignant, she said, "I am fascinated by all kind of girls with different body shapes... Whether that be frustrated girls, strong girls, gross girls, shy girls, idealized girls, girls who don’t care or girls who say 'fuck you' with a lovely smile, I try to play with their flaws and emotions with humor in a colorful and fun style."

Nuria Riaza's Ballpoint Illustrations

Illustration // Thursday, August 27, 2015
Nuria Riaza's blue ballpoint drawings are meticulous, in every sense of the word. Not only are they exquisitely rendered with detailed, fine linework, but each piece displays the artist's very careful deliberation and composition (her grids of collected knick-knacks are a neat freak's dream). Riaza graduated with a degree in Fine Arts from the Universidad Politécnica in Valencia.

The drawings are surreal and use graphite, ink and colored pencil to portray meandering narratives that include religious figures, animals, spirits, and geometric play.
