Ovi Nedelcu.

September 9th, 2012 by nipper

I am always taken aback by character illustrators who simply ‘get’ human (and/or monster) form. I marvel at their sketches. I pore over their work. I love them even more*

One such artist is Ovi Nedelcu. If only my sketchbooks looked like that.

Can’t remember where I found this, but suspect it’s Super Punch.

*When I say ‘love’ I mean hate/am jealous of/wish I was.

I’ve seen collaborative sketchbooks before, but none with work of this quality, produced by such luminaries as Mignola.

Go look or Buy… especially if you’re in the USA, where it’s going for $23 as opposed to nearly 70 quid in the UK. Grumble.

Thanks to Super Punch.

I really do love this collection from Mr. Stephen Kenn. I think this sentence from the man himself, goes someway to explaining why: ‘Composed of steel welded frames with a marbled brown finish, custom webbing belts, smooth leather straps and repurposed WWII military fabric.’

Can someone loan me 5K please? Or just go directly here and fill in the details for me please.

Inkr.

And now for something different, an app, that’s umm… different. Decidedly niche, Inkr let’s you scan your hard drawn work (via the ipad camera), reposition it, add to it and/or use your ipad as a lightbox.

I just spent 200€ on a Copic lightbox. Damn.

Great idea, in a world full of apps (apps are the new plastic), nice to see one I care about.

I really like this, I don’t think I want to do it, but I really like it…

Fallen hard for the *ahem* branding of Camden Brewery’s ‘Ink Stout’. To the extent I may need to source some when I’m there…

Thanks to Oh Beautiful Beer for bringing it to my attention.

La Veine Graphique.

Documenting the graphic movement within tattooing ‘La Veine Graphique’ looks mighty interesting, with amazing work from the likes of Xoil, Kostek, Jef, Yann and Piet du congo to name a but a few.

Inspiring stuff.

You can buy it here.

Matthew Cruickshank.

Really enjoying the work of Matthew Cruickshank, especially this little drawing of London. Lovely.

I am quite jealous of how effortless it looks, i’m sure that’s not the case, but it just seems to flow so beautifully… I’ll be even more jealous if he’s any relation to THE Cruickshank.

See more here and thanks to Drawn for showcasing.
