Drawings by Budapest, Hungary-based artist Benze. More images below.
I spent the last couple weeks of October out in Tokyo to be a part of the first-ever Pow! Wow! Japan event. Met so many amazing people, some whose work I’d followed for years (like Dave Kinsey), and all the art produced was incredible. This event continues to prove to me that the truly talented people in this world are all the friendliest too.
This enormous 12-storey mural above was painted by Case (who you might remember from our film, Heavy Dreamers) and it was kind of insane because he was only allowed to use the lift until about 3pm everyday because a bus had to park below. Not sure how he finished it in time but I believe he spent 47 hours on it total. He gets the award for largest mural in the history of the Pow! Wow! event.
Case and several other artists have travelled onto Taipei for the first of three city stops in Pow! Wow! Taiwan and many more have joined them.

A couple weeks ago we launched our Booooooom Doodle Hunt – our big online scavenger hunt – with bags from Herschel Supply and original drawings by Luke Ramsey up for grabs! The hunt ends this Friday so there’s still time to join in on the fun! Heads up for everyone already hunting, the last hidden drawing will be in one of the posts on Tuesday or Wednesday!

We shot the video above with Luke as he continuously drew characters for about 40 minutes. He challenged himself not to pause and think in the middle of any drawings, and tried to just let his mind go. Our original thought was to interview him but this ended up being something a lot more personal.
We are also selling 12 of Luke Ramsey’s original drawings in our shop! These are not prints, these are the original drawings! This may be one of the most affordable ways to own an original by Luke, and of course once they’re gone, they’re gone. Many years ago a dinosaur drawing he made was one of the first original pieces of art I bought.
Huge thank you to Luke Ramsey for being a part of this little experiment! It’s been so much fun, and the response has been so positive, we’ll definitely have to do this again with another artist! Thanks once again to Herschel Supply for supplying the prizes! Good luck to everyone hunting doodles!
Painter’s Mansion by Ivan Khrutsky (1855)
Love this project by Moscow-based Russian illustrator Arina Shabanova, who recently shared her work in our October Reader Submissions. Shabanova took this painting by Ivan Khrutsky and reinterpreted it over and over, emphasizing various small details in the original.
Have a look at many more interpretations below.
