Love from Brazil.

Sao Paulo Brazil has its own version of Tim Barnard in the form of the artist duo Mulheres Barbadas. The two self-described “bearded ladies” take turns drawing until the page is full – love this idea! Their portfolio includes lots of music packaging and work for Coca Cola and MTV. Enjoy a few more images after the jump.

    COLABTASTIC! I say you start this with all your blog readers. just mail out a blank sheet of paper and see what happens.

  • that’s actually a cool idea… i would probably just post a digital drawing – the question is how many would actually do it, would you?

  • kyle

    damn, that style is so similar to tim barnard…they both kick ass, but when its partially in color, it looks pretty sweet

  • yea i agree that’s the one thing i like about this work more is the use of color (although most of their work is also monochromatic)

  • james Elwhy

    Hell yes i would do it! Down like james brown to get my doodle on! COLAB STYLE HAMMY!

  • i have been brainstorming something to get a bunch of people involved in an art project – stay tuned

  • Love it! I´ll join!

  • cool ill let you guys know
