Stefan Glerum

Reasons not to become a “crate digger” (people, often djs, who live to rummage through old record bins in search of elusive records) as illustrated by Stefan Glerum. When I look at these drawings I can’t help but hear Showbiz and AG in my head – “I’m down with the crew called Diggin’ in the Crates!” Love the rendering style and the way the text is handled.

Lauren Javor

Gorgeous paintings by Whistler BC resident, Lauren Javor. I had the privilege of showing my work along side hers as part of this year’s Brave Art Shows. I literally joined her fan club the minute I walked into the gallery and saw her work hanging on the wall.

Drawing Flies!

We already established that Yasmine and Kyle draw everyday, today I learned that Jeff Kennedy does too. Jeff (great name by the way) loves fishing and is attempting to draw flies everyday for a year! That’s commitment! I love that… I mean, committing to things for long periods of time is not my favourite thing personally, but I love when other people commit to things like this.

If you don’t like fishing you are stupid. The only other possibility is that you are actually a fish yourself, and somehow surfing the internet underwater.

Bagger43

I just purchased a book by a fantastic artist named Bagger43 a.k.a. Dennis Brown. I had seen his work in Juxtapoz and was stoked when he emailed to encourage me about Booooooom. Dennis was born in the Philippines and raised in Japan before landing in Florida. Now he’s working for the almighty rhino in New York. Maybe all that moving around is why his style is so eclectic.

Hey, that’s my face!

Head over to Your Face Blog, email Damien Weighill, and he’ll draw your face! Maybe your face will even get published in his zine! Damien just posted face illustration #265 – that’s dedication. I snooped around the site and found a link to his portfolio (CSI should hire me), some really great work over there too.
