Moonassi_x_Kitsune_web1

Daehyun Kim-1

This is the illustrative work of Daehyun Kim. After graduating from university, he started to draw his characteristic drawings which formed part of his “Moonassi series”. Daehyun has been creating these pieces since 2008, they are all about himself and the people in his life.

I really like his bold graphic style and the fact that he only uses black when he draws. I also like how each one is a little story that you get to flesh out using your own imagination.

There is a lot more to this series on his site and they’re definitely worth checking out, you can also buy some of his original drawings so happy looking and maybe shopping.

Wilmari Botha

Wilmari-Botha

Wilmari Botha is currently exhibiting at Wolves. Her show called Skin and Bone is made up of original framed drawings and then limited edition prints, if you missed out on the ink version. Her illustrations explore the human body, inside and out to reveal how bizarre it actually is.

The show is visually interesting and quite different from a lot of the stuff we’ve had up at Wolves and the prices are crazy good. So all I’m saying is why don’t you go grab yourself a coffee and and a cupcake and then buy yourself some nice new art. You can never have enough cool art.

Support local talent, lets make them famous. Hooray.

The show will be up until the 24th of March.

Wolves address: No 3 Corlett Drive, Illovo, JHB

Amber Smith 2222

Amber Smith is a young talented illustrator who is one of my favourite local young creatives. She has exhibited at Wolves a couple of times before and this month she is doing a solo show called Creeps which is going to consist of framed original paintings and prints.

Amber is really good at what she does, her work is always fresh and unexpected. I own a couple of her pieces and I’m sure I’ll be buying this time around too. So if you’re looking for some cool stuff to add to your art collection make sure you swing past Wolves this Friday, the show starts at 6pm.

Below are some examples of the work going up.

Florence + Watson and the Sugarbush Mouse

August 7, 2015

BOOK AND SLIPPERS

My incredibly talented friends Danielle Bischoff, Rob van Vuuren and Lauren Fowler have recently released a very beautifully written and illustrated book called Florence + Watson and the Sugarbush Mouse. Dani was in Johannesburg a couple of weeks back and dropped off a copy for Nina James and I was so excited to get my paws onto it because I absolutely love Lauren Fowler’s illustrative style and Dani and Rob are such a fun couple that I knew the story would be awesome, which it was.

It’s a sweet rhyming tale of two honey badgers named Florence and Watson who go around singing and telling stories and the one they tell in this book is all about a Sugarbush Mouse named Petal who saves her village in a very special way. It’s such a lovely written and beautifully drawn book and it’s 100% South African which makes it’s 100% even more awesome. If you’re wanting a copy for your little one, or even yourself you can click here and order one. I highly recommend you do.
