I just stumbled across El diario visual de Sonia Pulido. I should be sleeping but, instead, I find myself scrolling and scrolling through her back logs. Can’t get enough! I haven’t done much excavation so far but apparently her work is now being printed in El Pais. Right On!
I have been admiring Alisa’s style for quite some time now through her blog. She dabbles in several mediums and is a professional, full-time artist. I am currently taking her Sketchbook Delight class and I am loving every minute. She uses a very different approach to teaching than any other online class I have taken. She’s personable and I really appreciate her take on the process of creating and reflecting on where I come from. It’s not a 100% methods class and it’s not 100% about theory and the cerebral aspect of creating. It’s a little bit of everything and every lesson, I am reminded of the importance of play. She has uploaded loads of shots from pages of her sketchbook on her flickr page. I love being able to see her process unfold.
This should be the third post for sketchbook envy. Notice the pattern? I’m tryin’ to be disciplined. Ok, so, I admit that the Post-it note drawings set isn’t a real conventional sketchbook, per se. But still inspirational nonetheless. Marc Johns is getting his stuff merchandised and good for him! As a firm believer in affordable art, I say, do it! His stuff puts a smile on my face. I wanna make the antler guy t-shirt into a pillow. I think he’d be a good cuddler, dontcha think?
I could look at sketchbooks and journals all day. Wish I could get paid to do that. I think that would be at the top of my unreal dream job list next to flea market trawler, stationery buyer and hawker stand food critic. *sigh* Well, a girl can dream…
