Vintage European Circus Posters

Illustration // Wednesday, April 29, 2015
The modern circus, as we think of it today, was originated by Philip Astley in Britain in 1768. It was the first time a show included horse riding tricks, acrobats, music and clowns in the same venue. These wonderful vintage posters are from the Cirucs Museum in the Netherlands and feature cats, camels, kangaroos, and even a woman in ice.

Illustrations and Animations by Carlín Díaz

Illustration // Wednesday, April 29, 2015
Some of Carlin Diaz's works have organic shapes, others geometrics. Shapes, he always thinks about shapes: of a circle, a flower, the shape of a woman... But, how represent them graphically? It all depends in the personality of each and every shape and the vibe transmitted by them. Every project have his own personality, every project creates his own feeling.

Meticulously Crafted Graphite Drawings by David Haines

Illustration // Thursday, April 16, 2015
David Haines "actively examines his position as an artist who makes pictorial and textual narratives in the wake of abstraction, conceptual art and photography. At the same time he is conscious of the status of the traditional labour intensive medium of pencil drawing in the digital age.

Illustration // Wednesday, April 15, 2015
Juul Kraijer's subject is the same naked female figure she has drawn repeatedly for more than a decade, whose features she has universalized and pared down (removing the eyebrows, for instance) so that she becomes almost an archetype, an 'everywoman' or, as the artist describes her, an 'emblematic embodiment of states of mind'...

Jean Bedez's Graphite Drawings

Illustration // Thursday, April 09, 2015
In French artist Jean Bedez's graphite drawings, "pasts and presents interweave and we read man’s immemorial procession towards ruin. These strictly black-and-white works resonate with that “art of combat.” Each one becomes a chessboard on which religious, economic and political powers endlessly change places and the aura of sacredness."
