Using fountain pens with black and gold ink, Berlin-based illustrator Melissa Murillo, aka Meyoko, creates dark Art Nouveau-inspired work that acts as a doorway to a microcosmic wilderness populated by divine entities and mythical creatures, where chaotic forests of luxuriant hair are formed from intermingling floral and animal elements.

Elmo Goes Duch

Illustration // Monday, February 13, 2012
Gorgeous new reader submission on the work of my new favorite French illustrator DUCH. While his work may not be for everyone, with gory hints of perverse narrative and raw illustrative line-work, when done right with the right balance of humor, I'm a sucker for it evertime. Thanks DUCH, enjoy x

You have seen pencil drawings in the past, but these tiny, surreal pencil drawings by Paul Chiappe are some of the most impressive you will ever see. They look as if they were derived from a Diane Arbus-inspired B-horror movie. Maybe that is our interpretation.

Illustration // Saturday, February 11, 2012
I dropped into my friend Ryan De La Hoz's new studio the other day to take a glimpse at what he had been up to, because I knew it had been a lot- and I really just love his work. After being awarded the Beautiful/Decay Wet Paint grant along with a couple other artists: Skinner, Maya Hayuk, Dereck Albeck, etc, Ryan was just hours away from delivering a handfull of pieces to the StumbleUpon offices in SF, among many other things...
