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.

Alessia Iannetti's Girls on Wood

Illustration // Tuesday, April 07, 2015
Alessia Iannetti's chosen medium of graphite, watercolor and ink on wood is fascinating and befuddling. Her ability to capture nuance of detail and smooth textures is astouding, and these images of young girls with birds and foliage are enchanting to look at for hours. Her handling of color against a monochromatic scene creates a sense of tension and focus as well. These are beautiful works rendered in a highly unique fashion.

King Lear is one of the greatest tragedies ever written, and also one of its darkest and most f*cked-up. Its one of Shakespeare's finest, and if you have ever seen it on stage, or read the play, you know King Lear's situation with his 3 daughters and his impending death. Why are we talking Lear today? Well, according to i09, "In 1930, Curwen Press published an edition of William Shakespeare's King Lear with illustrations by artist John Yunge-Bateman."
