The Moleskine Drawings of Kerby Rosanes

Illustration // Tuesday, December 09, 2014
We've looked at the Moleskine drawings of Kerby Rosanes before, and his newest update of work is his strongest to date. As his site states, "Philippines-based illustrator Kerby Rosanes works mainly with ordinary black pens to magically illustrate his “doodle” world. The 23-year old artist considers his art as a personal hobby which turned out to be his part-time freelance work after being recognized by various design blogs, international magazines and online communities."

We love checking in on on one of our all-time favorites Pat Perry. He recently updated his blog with sketches and pictures from a cross-country motorcycle roadtrip that included "sleeping in lizard dust behind Dollar General, breaking down a hundred miles from any town in Texas, getting directions from junkies, getting advice from junkies, getting made fun of by junkies, camping in the Walmart parking lot, being harrassed by police...

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 21, 2014
Slovakian-born artist Stefan Zsaitsits has a whole bunch new work since we last checked in with him. To us, the simple will always win out. A pencil, a piece of paper, that is the best. Stefan creates these fantastic, detailed, notebook-esque pencil drawings of various characters and a bit of dream scenarios around each's head. Simple, powerful, great work.

Update with Toronto's Haejung Lee

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 18, 2014
Here is an update of images with Toronto-based artist Haejung Lee. She explains of her work, "My obsession with documentation is reflected in my artistic practice. I make art because I want to, but more importantly, I make art because I feel the need to. It is like I'm rushing to write something down on a piece of paper before I forget, before the rushing of the blood or thumping of the heart fades away and disappears completely. . . "

The Sketchbooks of Gabriel Kieling

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 21, 2014
Beautiful erotic compositions and portraits in the sketchbooks of Sao Paulo architect, Gabriel Kieling. They have the precision and balance that could be expected in an architectural blueprint, with clean lines of geometry and angular accents but are mixed with the passion of human emotion, desire and skin.

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 07, 2014
Taschen has released a fantastic six-volume set of R. Crumb's sketchbooks, based on the original hard-bound, slip-cased, seven-volume series released by the German publisher Zweitausendeins between 1981 and 1997. As Taschen notes, "Unlike the previous edition, which included every doodle ever made by the preeminent underground artist, our edition has been personally edited by the notoriously fastidious artist to include only what he considers his best work, reproduced directly from the original sketchbooks."

Since its publication seventy years ago, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's The Little Prince has captivated millions of readers throughout the world.

Best of 2013: The Sketchbook of Anton Vill

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 18, 2013
Originally published on January 4th, 2013: The great website Empty Kingdom found a good one in the sketchbook art of Estonian artist, Anton Vill. A great mix of both a lowbrow style and incredible craft, Vill's work reminds us of the sketchbook of one of the great animated movies you would find from European production company. Come to think of it, maybe its been Vill the whole time...
