Tara Krebs: Childhood Memories

Illustration // Friday, March 08, 2013
In these works, Tara Krebs draws from her childhood memories of impossible worlds made tangible by her imagination and connectedness to nature. The ripped-from-a-storybook quality to these pieces, along with their vague titles and lack of narrative text allow only a brief glimpse or scene of a story, requiring the viewer’s imagination to fill in the blanks, much in the way that the artist’s own memories of childhood reach out to her through briefly illuminated fragments.  

Terra Gammatron

Illustration // Friday, March 08, 2013
Hailing from Norway, artist and illustrator Terra Gammatron is creating insanely intricate and surreal drawings, that are filled with classic occult imagery. For example, “The Day Aleister Crowley Made The Golem Of Flesh”, is a gorgeously layered rendition of the English occultist, mystic, ceremonial magician, poet and mountaineer, who was responsible for founding the religious philosophy of Thelema, a personal favorite of mine.

Ballardini is based in NYC and currently designs for Psyop.

Todd Hale's iPhone/iPad Drawings

Illustration // Thursday, March 07, 2013
”Drawing using only my finger is an interesting marriage of the digital world and the primal act of making marks. I think that notion seeps into the work itself, and has manifested into a type of organic technology, from which I am mining artifacts and images... I want to approach making visual art as if I was a musician on the road, experimenting with and refining my work in front of people on a consistent basis...'
