I’m digging the neon splashes of color coupled with the lightly drawn graphite lines in these works by artist Niki Pilkington. Simple lines, loud colors, stylish figures. ORANGE nail polish. They’re fun. via. Advertisements

thread drawings


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


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.

While the work remains inside the gallery, […]

will merge its way into some work, eventually. the inspiration for my scatterbrain: Mark Lombardi. His diagram drawings are incredibly beautiful, at the same time being factual enough to get the attention of the FBI. Here’s one of the few examples I could find as of yet. Of course, the image size is not nearly […]
