Sketching out your creative dream

442a421877826b5e25e6828df7d0a562

We all have dreams and aspirations they grow within us from any age, from the time we’re two years old and scribbling on any blank piece of paper in sight to the years in university when your dreaming up a life of bigger things you want to do and places you may want to go. Although as time goes by sometimes unless your extremely determined you can feel swayed or lose sight of the things you dreamed of and that’s why you need to grab a pen and sketch them out.

Sketching out your dreams keeps them in sight, gives you a reference to go back to when your feeling a tad lost in your aspirations or feel your not sure where your going. So here are 5 steps to sketching out your own creative dream for 2014.

1.  Grab a huge piece of paper or wallpaper roll across the floor , a couple of pens and your inspiration and start doodling and jotting out your aspirations and future plans.

2 .  Break them down with someone who motivates you the little steps you need to do to work towards those dreams ( They don’t seem so far away when the two of you narrow them down into tiny steps).

3.  Start paving roots and pathways to begin implimenting your plans .

4.  Meet new people and make connections with those who might help you on your way to where you want to be :).

5. Block out those niggling negative thoughts and “I can’t do this”, stay positive if something doesn’t work out brush yourself down and keep going as being self motivated is key and the effort you put in is sure to pay off.

Comics Illustrator of the Week :: James Stokoe

James Stokoe is a self taught artist from Canada who occasionally releases a new issue of his ongoing opus, Orc Stain, from Image Comics. He began his comics career in the mid-2000′s with titles such as Wonton Soup from ONI Press, Popgun Volume 1, and 24Seven from Image. He was banned from the U.S. for a few years for working(drawing comics) here illegally, but he has put those darker days behind him now.

Coming off of increased interest in his work on Orc Stain, and other high-profile projects like Sullivan’s Sluggers(a wildly successful Kickstarter project with writer Mark Andrew Smith), Stokoe was hired to write & draw Godzilla: Half Century War for IDW in 2012, which received high praise from critics. This week sees the release of Avengers 100th Year Anniversary, an imaginary “what if?” future story, which is a perfect type of project for Stokoe to run free with some of Marvel’s most iconic characters.

More Orc Stains are in the works, and fans will wait patiently for their release, because a talent like James Stokoe is certainly not one to be rushed.

James Stokoe sometime posts updates on his site here.

Illustrator: Jesmond Cat Designs

After attending a craft fair, I was kindly introduced to the wonderful illustrator, Chris Leaper, founder of Jesmond Cat Designs. He is based in West Yorkshire, England and uses traditional media, acrylic on canvas or board to create these vibrant, quirky works of art.

The name ‘Jesmond Cat’ comes from a personal character story Leaper created which continued to progress and now acts as a ‘mascot’ for his personal illustration brand. There is a sense of softness in his work which can only be given justice when seen in person! Completely talented and imaginative, the artist has worked on children’s books previously which this style fits into very well!

More of his work can be seen on his Website  and Facebook page which he updates regularly.

Thanks for reading,

Carla

Designer and Typographer Kelly Thorn

cardtorial_wonderful

In writing these Art Crush posts, I’ve found that I’m usually late to the party. Meaning, of course, that literally everyone else has known about these illustrators already before I stumbled across their work, since I’m probably an unhip grandma. But in this case, I’m kind of excited–Kelly Thorn is an up-and-coming junior designer at Louise Fili Ltd. and generally amazing typographer and illustrator, and she’s already blossoming on the scene.

I stumbled upon Kelly Thorn’s work by way of Friends of Type, a “typography sketchbook” of sorts started by Erik Marinovich and a few of his illo-designer buddies. Kelly’s command of linework and her gorgeous color choices immediately drew me in. Her pieces demonstrate a solid understanding of design and composition, but still leave room for illustrative experimentation and expression. Lovely.

A 2012 graduate of Tyler School of Art’s Graphic & Interactive Design program, Kelly now lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.


[collaboration with Dana Tanamachi for Nibblr]

You can follow along with Kelly on her websiteTwitterDribbble, & Tumblr. I can’t wait to see more of her work.

Brian Stauffer

Brian Stauffer uses a combination of sketching, painting, and digital collage to create editorial illustrations. Much of his work graces the pages of news and political publications like The New York Times, TIME, The New Yorker, The Nation, and Rolling Stone. His thought-provoking illustrations illuminate social issues and set the proper tone for their accompanying articles. Stauffer’s work would not be out of place at a vintage propaganda poster gallery, but can be found instead at notable art museums and institutes.

Discover his large body of work on his website.

Illustrator: Josh Courlas

Have you ever awoken in the morning with a lingering feeling that’s something like queasy wonderment, with fading images of strange, unearthly places bobbing at the edges of your consciousness before sinking forever into the cloudy depths of forgetting? Well, what if at that moment you were able to hook up your dream-addled brain to some fantastical art-machine that had the power to transliterate the fevered firing of your synapses into psychic Polaroid snaps? The result might be something very much like the art of Josh Courlas.

This New York illustrator’s fantastically atmospheric work is filled with mysterious figures lurking in shadowy halls and trudging through foreboding, misty landscapes or worlds of nightmarish, geometric architecture. In quite what manner of quests these cloaked somnambulators might be engaged remains always arcane, but that’s all part of the appeal. It’s as though those crazy dreams of yours had something to do with those dog-eared copies of HP Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe sitting on your nightstand…

See more of the products of Courlas’s magnificent, spattery 1970s airbrush of gloom over at his website.
