I’ve become a little more than a little addicted to Emily Jo Cureton’s NY Times Crossword Drawings series. Every day Emily selected seemingly unrelated words within the crossword puzzle to inspire a sometimes comical, sometimes thought-provoking sketch. It’s really quite inspiring! Check out more of Emily’s crossword sketches here.

I am so incredibly excited about posting today’s featured artist, Hope Gangloff. Hope is an inky New York artist- I say this because she predominantly uses pen and ink. She’s illustrated children’s books, ie The Magic School Bus. She has also illustrated for the New York Times. Her work is real. It’s intoxicating. Edgy. Familiar. She showcases a lifestyle that looks pretty darn fun. Annnnd! She welcomes the audience into the fun. If you can’t tell, I’m a huuuuge fan. To see more of Hope’s amazing art, check out her website, here. You can also find a very awesome interview with Hope Gangloff and Paul Madonna on The Rumpus.net, right here.
Fabian Ciraolo, AMAZING illustrator from Santiago, Chile, has transformed super heroes and super stars with a dramatic flair in his series “Oldschool Heroes”. His almost.. hipster characters are supa-dupa and his talent is incredible! I absolutely love it! Check out all of Fabian’s amazing work on his blog, here. And you can become a fan of his work on facebook, here. Or follow him or Twitter, here. My favorite? Why, Bowie, of course!
