Emily Wong

It turns out Emily Wong (Ninja vs Penguin) is obsessed with hair! Whenever she’s feeling really stressed she busts out the graphite – haha I love it. The hair in this first drawing actually belongs to Ophelia Chong, small world!

Maija Luutonen

This photo by Maija Luttonen made me laugh. Maija is living and working in Helsinki and has a unique portfolio in that there is as much drawing as there is photography (I haven’t come across this combination too often). I particularlly like this little series of photos, Please let’s pretend.

Ehren Salazar

Ehren Salazar is easily one of my favourite artists, and I am extremely privileged to call him a friend. I dug up a few of his drawings and I think you will quickly see how insanely talented he is. We went to college together and I remember his portfolio was filled with hundreds of these ridiculously detailed pencil drawings – I just told him about Etsy so hopefully he puts a bunch of his work on there.

Ehren is also currently running a galleryspace called Little Mountain Studios here in Vancouver, and you can definitely expect to see us working together in the new year.

Your Face Blog

A couple months ago I wrote excitedly about Damien Weighill’s Your Face Blog. Send him a photo of yourself and he whips up an illustration of you! Well guess whose mugshot showed up on the site yesterday.

That’s me, in the pink.

Misato Suzuki

Misato Suzuki was born in Japan and now lives and works in LA. Her color palette reminds me of Seonna Hong’s work I featured here awhile ago. I was excited to learn that she often paints with coffee!

Gemma Correll

Gemma Correll posted her work to the Booooooom Facebook Group and kinda cut right to the front of the line for the drinking fountain. I always have 10 or so things lined up to post about but her posted item caught my eye and now here she is. Would love to see this stuff animated, especially the more collagey work.

Sophie Henson

Sophie Henson sent over some nice doodles. I particularly like the drawings that look like a bunch of random contents from my junk drawer. Sophie’s client list includes Stussy, CK, Levis, and H+M.

Hannah Waldron

Some fun little drawings by Hannah Waldron, another talented illustrator from England. Is it just me or has the UK experienced a bumper crop of recently graduated talent in the past couple years? It could be the fact that all the sites I go to end with “co.uk”.
