Friday Five

1) Mary Blair unfortunately she is no longer with us but has left behind some exciting art to remember her by. Probably best known for her association with Disney being involved in their concept art. I love her for her great colour choices and all round cute drawing style.  Google recently honoured her, for what would have been her 100th birthday which I thought was lovely :)

2) Minni Havas a Helsinki artist who obviously has some amazing pencil skills to achieve her photo realistic works of art
I wonder how many hours would have  gone into such a piece? Too many I guess

3) Josh Keyes another artist doing some amazing photo realistic work. In his profile it states his work is a "hybrid of eco-surrealism and dystopian folktales that express a concern for our time and the Earth's future." I like that his pieces are cold and natural museum-esque, definitely evokes feelings of man intruding upon the natural World which to me is always an interesting subject!

4) Matt Forsythe who has a varied design style that's so well done I just had to include him! His profile writes Matt as a comic book artist and as one of the founding members of the site Drawn! which I've been a fan of since yonks! Look at this cuteness below...eek!
I'm also excited to get my hands on one of his comics, which I'm sure would be unbelievably great!

5) Charlie Immer lucky last today, does some gruesomely cute art! Lots of inside body parts, bones and veins and blood but done in the sweetest lolly colours, pastel blue and pinks, yellows and whites that all together makes me deliriously happy!

Love it, Love them all!


  1. Nice post. I would love to get my hands on the Mary Blair book. I think she's probably responsible for my desire to draw stories.

  2. eeek...there is a Mary Blair book...there goes my bank balance!

    She's really amazing hey :)
