Jacob Everett's Ballpoint Portraits

Illustration // Thursday, April 18, 2013
Jacob Everett is an artist and illustrator from the UK. He creates large scale black and white portraits using biro brand ballpoint pens. His work varies in subject from well known faces of popular culture to homeless men from the streets of Bradford. He use an intricate technique of overlapping elliptical marks, which gradually build to represent the subtle contours of the face. In common with digital images, his works, close up, appear as thousands of tiny ‘pixels’. When viewed from a distance they reveal the subtleties and nuances of individual character.  

Mario Kolaric's Line Patterns

Illustration // Thursday, April 18, 2013
These experimental drawings are part of an ongoing series by artist Mario Kolaric. The simple, meticulous linework conveys materiality, structures, perspectives and different shapes or premises. Like the careful needlepoint of an artist at a loom, Kolaric creates patterns that evoke movement and energy, waves and patterns both naturally-occurring and not. These are strange and unique relics of sketchbook explorations, a lovely representation of the goings-on of one artist's idle mind.

Michael C. Hsiung's Nautical Line Drawings

Illustration // Tuesday, April 16, 2013
Michael C. Hsiung describes himself as "characterized by a large mustache, a herbivorous diet and a thin yellow protective skin." His artwork consists of line drawings that take on a whimsical, nautical and often comical tone. Hsiung draws things like drug rugs, narwhals, centaurs, wizards and the ouroboros. His work sometimes ends up as tattoos on people's bodies. Hsiung says that he has a "relatively small brain for a mammal of his size," but if that is true his artwork doesn't reflect it.    

James Julien's "Bruises"

Illustration // Tuesday, April 16, 2013
Jules Julien is an illustrator living and working in Paris. His series of digital illustrations called "Bruises" capture a sleek, graphic vision of the nominal bodily affliction. Using a strict palette of greys to denote features and hair, the bold red circles are emblematic of much more than bruises. These illustrations bring to mind visuals of national colors, the sun, flags and warnings, to name a few. The omission of eyes gives each drawing a mysterious factor. These illustrations are lovely and strange, framing Julien's work as that of a highly talented and thoughtful artist.   

James Jirat Patradoon Illustration

Illustration // Tuesday, April 16, 2013
James Jirat Patradoon is an australian artist and illustrator. He creates character-driven visual art, born of fictional worlds of borrowed imagery that act as distorted mirrors to our reality, mashed-up and remixed to create new stories. Inspired by the fashion and costume of black music, gangster rap, professional wrestling, sci-fi films, and superheroes. James' work is an irreverent take on the stoic nature of macho pop culture. His illustrations are intense, grimy, powerful and unmistakeably Patradoon. Patradoon has done work for Mishka, RVCA, MTV, Ray Ban, Diesel and Nike.   

Everything I Can See From Here

Illustration // Tuesday, April 16, 2013
Directed by Sam Taylor and Bjorn Aschim for the London-based animation collective "The Line," this haunting and somber short animation possesses a narrative simplicity that is almost hypnotizing in its mysterious ambiance. The quality of the short's storytelling and visual artistry is all the more impressive considering that  "Everything I Can See From Here" was created with no budget over the course of two years during the filmmakers' evenings, weekends, and days off.
