Illustration // Friday, March 01, 2013
'My ‘art’ story started with the drawing of a duck, swimming in a pond with helicoper-like feet. I was six years old and my mum was sure she should sign me up for an art class. Although the famous drawing disappeared, I kept on developing myself artistically and went to art school. I work with pencil, ink, paint, spraypaint and collage. I copy old papers, books, magazines, postcards, lettraset by xerox, often magnify some parts. I’m usually searching for interestng patterns and typography...' Aleksandra Niepsuj  

Illustrations by Tyler Landry

Illustration // Friday, March 01, 2013
The shortest and most direct route straight to my heart is through bootlegged illustrations of Bart Simpson, or any member of the Simpsons family for that matter - special lust-worthy bonus if its Bard gone Bad with a sickly Siamese Milhouse attached. Tyler Landry, you win. Thank you for your illustrations. He also has a bunch of humorous hermit crabbed themed comics in there as well. Enjoy it.

Alex Hohlov's Chaos and Construction

Illustration // Thursday, February 28, 2013
Digitally rendered abstract expressionism from illustrator and designer Alex Hohlov. The sporadic nature of Alex's compositions is both extremely gratifying and maddening, and while there seems to be no order to his chaos, his renderings are created with a certain delicacy and organization in their composition and palette which can't help me feel satisfied by the whole process.

The Art of Jordan Clarke

Illustration // Thursday, February 28, 2013
A mish-mash of an artist, illustrator and designer, Jordan Clarke is fascinated by all things dark, whimsical and vintage, and her work is characterized by a collision of Victorian vignettes, rockabilly pin-ups, religious iconography, tattooing, 20th century circus and fairground lore, and a slight obsession with El Dia De Los Muertos. 'I draw with thread. If it can be reduced to linework, I can stitch it. I believe embroidery is a powerful story-teller, nostalgic and evocative.' Jordan Clarke  

Robert Otto Epstein: Knitting Chart Drawings

Illustration // Thursday, February 28, 2013
'I'm an artist living and working in Maplewood, NJ. My current work consists of paintings and drawings on paper based on turn of the century French and German filet lace patterns and vintage knitting and crochet schematics. My primary interests are in modes of production or 'the machinery of making.' I like to consider the body at work in the vain of Gilles Deleuze's 'desiring machine'...' Robert Otto Epstein
