Happy Monday All!

Hope everyone had a great weekend. It was absolutely beautiful here in the Bay Area! For today’s flickr Mondays, I’d like to introduce you to Netherland artist, Anja Mulder. I am in awe of Anja’s beautiful hand drawn lettering on old book pages. Her work brings a sense of calmness that I really do enjoy.

Tracciamenti’s dresses

dress 15 dumb angel w. snoopy dingbats

I first saw Tracciamenti’s work a few months ago on but does it float, and I haven’t really stopped thinking about it since. I’m totally into the synthesis of geometry and art, and think her drawings and collages are beautifully executed.

You can view a ton of her work at flickr, and a few prints and drawings are available for purchase here.

Marc Johns — Serious Drawings

I am really enjoying Marc Johns’ drawings. He has so many that are so awesome that it’s very difficult to choose a favorite, but here are some that I thought are pretty great. Check out a ton more of his work, or just go ahead and buy his book.

Inky City

I love living in the city, but on the other hand I’m glad I don’t live in THE the City. That is to say: I have a love/hate relationship with the gritty, eroding city cityscape. Part of the love part of that is, I love drawings and prints of urban spaces, especially when they’re done sloppily in ink (clean crisp geometry of buildings has a place in my heart too but it doesn’t remind me of the reality of city life). Giant creatures optional.

Some of my favorite chroniclers of offkilter urbanity follow: if you have any suggestions of folks I should check out, note em in the comments.

pietari posti [I am amazed we don't have one of her prints yet; I can only surmise it's because we can't decide which]
pposti12

kozyndan [they do really great very wide format urban panoramas, usually involving hundreds of bunnies, giant color amoebas, or some sort of strange mutants]

josh cochran [his work, like pposti or james jean or not too many others I can think of, is perfection to me]

paul pope [Does cities very well. Also, people doing weird sigils whilst sitting on the surface of mars.]

brian wood [loves urban blight more than most anyone]
