Laurie Lipton05. September 2014

These very peculiar and intricate drawings of by an artist called Laurie Lipton. I find them so bizarre, but just as intriguing. They’re like you’re taking a glimpse back into the past, but after you’ve eaten way too much Sunday lunch and sat out in the sun for too long, if you know what I mean.

- Laurie Lipton was inspired by the religious paintings of the Flemish School. She tried to teach herself how to paint in the style of the 16th century Dutch Masters and failed. When traveling around Europe as a student, she began developing her very own peculiar drawing technique building up tone with thousands of fine cross-hatching lines like an egg tempera painting. “It’s an insane way to draw”, she says, “but the resulting detail and luminosity is worth the amount of effort. My drawings take longer to create than a painting of equal size and detail.”

Laurie says – The photographer, Diane Arbus, was another of my inspirations. Her use of black and white hit me at the core of my Being. Black and white is the color of ancient photographs and old TV shows… it is the color of ghosts, longing, time passing, memory, and madness. Black and white ached. I realized that it was perfect for the imagery in my work.”

Joanna Concejo08. July 2014

Joanna Concejo is a Polish illustrator who creates such imaginative and whimsical drawings. Her characters are playful and a little off-centre and I really like her delicate style of drawing.

- Joanna Concejo is a children’s book illustrator whose work is published in France, Italy and Spain. She’s originally from Poland, but currently lives in France where she spends her time drawing and bringing up her children. 

My main influences have come from childhood. I was brought up in the countryside with a grandmother who told stories in such a marvelous way that I’ve always had the desire to make things up. I was also surrounded by women who worked with their hands, whether embroidery or knitting, and I had an aunt who loved drawing.
