thread drawings

23Feb13

Unfoldings is the title of a series of thread drawings by artist Allison Watkins. Check these out! She applies the thread to fabric in a variety of methods, from hand stitching to machine embroidery. While I like how detailed some areas are rendered, I think I like how the drawings are intentionally undone most of […]

Daphne Descends is the title of Alessia Iannetti‘s new body of work that will be on exhibit starting tomorrow at Rome’s Dorothy Circus Gallery. Mostly graphite, her mixed-media work is intricately detailed, with seldom splashes of color. Iannetti depicts solitary female figures among elements of nature. via.


Check out these pen drawings by Moni Lewandowski. Her use of line is expressive while staying true to the rendition of the figures, whether they be animal or human. I love all of the designs in the backgrounds, hair, and clothing… via. images via.  


Artist/ illustrator Anna Higgie has many intriguing projects on her website, but I found this commissioned project for a Berlin nightclub, Crush, in 2008 to be particularly blog-worthy.

I am overwhelmingly impressed by his graphite skills; the blur-effect presented feels more like paint […]


Shane McAdams produced the following drawings using primarily ballpoint pens. Graphite, oil, and resin are used in select images. Synthetic Landscapes is a fitting title for this series; cheers to getting creative with artistic mediums while maintaining a reference to real-life imagery! info via.


Dan Fischer draws incredibly realistic renditions of photographs of prominent artists, sculptures, and art events from the last century. Look at them! His tremendous skill at realism coupled with the patience and concentration that went into the process demands attention from anyone. There is also something to be explored about his interpretation of a photograph […]


American artist and architect Lebbeus Woods made the following drawings. I was initially carried away by his extremely detailed use of line and multiple geometric forms, then I researched a bit of what they are about. This article discusses how the bottom images are part of his response to the Bosnian War of 1992-93. It […]
