London-based artist, Charlotte Mann uses intricate life-sized drawings for her installations. Using only a black marker, she depicts scenes of furniture, clutter and even floor boards! Charlotte uses a special water-based marker called the Posca marker pen, which is non toxic. This prevents her from feeling light-headed from the fumes, during long drawing sessions. Her wall murals take away the need for acquiring fancy decorations and even furniture in some cases. She has collaborated with fashion designer Peter Jensen to create breathtaking backdrops for various fashion shows. Check out all of Charlotte’s insanely detailed doodles on her webpage.

Jillian, Lauren and Kady are three Chicago based inky designers who have taken the internet by storm. Their collaborated series, “The Inflated/Deflated project” began as a project that could be used as an outlet to share large and small emotions/memories/inner monologues with the public. And as you can see, the public is listening. You can find the deflated balloons on sale at their Etsy store, here. And be sure to check out all of the balloons in their series, here.
“The words written on our balloons range from humorous quotes to heartfelt feelings and memories. These words are marked on the surface of inflated balloons, and like that of one’s thoughts being released, so too is the air of the balloon. Deflated the once largely marked letters become small, expressive, and intricate forms.” – The Inflated/Deflated project
