To me, sketchbooks are the most interesting part of an artist’s body of work. They show thoughts and observations before they become hidden in a more complex piece. I love the finished quality to Nicholas Stevenson’s sketchbooks so much, I just had to share! I have such a weakness for saturated color palettes and hectic compositions. Nicholas Stevenson is an illustrator based out of London who works mostly in Gouache. When he’s not painting, he plays a lot of music. I highly recommend checking out his portfolio, and all of his other internet hangouts: Portfolio | Twitter | Tumblr | Behance | Music
Samantha from other-side-of-the-multiverse has a real eye for the human figure. I only know this artist’s first name, but her tumblr was so full of wonderful pieces that I just couldn’t resist! She works with watercolor on Arches paper.

Lee Price graduated from the Moore College of Art, in Philadelphia. She specializes in photorealistic paintings, most of which involve an aerial view of a woman eating food, often in the bathroom. Her work is striking because of its subject and perspective, but also because it asks a lot more questions than it answers.

Up in Boston the weather is still nowhere near spring-like, and I’m growing impatient. Juan Bakea’s work made me feel much more cheerful, even though I’m still trapped in my winter coat. It’s so playful! And Monsters! I’m a huge fan of mixing media, and he does it so seamlessly; I’m in awe. None of his sites post any sort of background….but they do have a lot of work so you should go and take a look!
If you’re a fan of indie games, you’ve probably seen the work of Jen Zee, who is best known for her work on Bastion, a fantasy RPG that became an overnight success. She is the lead artist over at SuperGiant, which is working on its next RPG title, Transistor. I had the opportunity to talk to her and the SuperGiant team, at PaxEast last weekend, and was floored by how friendly they were. Jen’s work brings the gameplay in both Bastion and Transistor to the next level. Painterly styles stand out a lot in games, because they still feel so rare and atypical. Personally, I picked up Bastion because of her artwork and stayed for the soundtrack. I have a feeling I’m going to do the same with Transistor. I’ll stop gushing.
Jen hails from Seattle Washington and works exclusively digitally. She uses an Intuos tablet and Adobe Photoshop to do everything. When she’s not working on Transistor, she’s freelancing.

I love portraiture. Capturing the humanity in a person is no small feat, and these sketches by Paula Bonet show such imagination and character, that they basically stare back up at you from their 2 dimensional planes. She works both large and small scale, mostly in paint and ink, and hails from Spain.
If you’re as obsessed as I am, check out the rest of her portfolio.

Comic books and film compliment each other really well. Jake Wyatt is an artist that does both, when he’s not illustrating something equally as awesome. He works traditionally, on bristol or vellum with paint and ink, and then adds more texture using photoshop. His short film about a girl, a fox, and public transportation is currently making the rounds online and is definitely worth checking out.

Anton Marrast grew up in Russia, and doesn’t believe in posting elaborate biographies on his webpages. His work is incredibly surreal, and this is only a fraction of it.
Charles Huettner is an animator and illustrator working out of Pennsylvania. He is a member of the Late Night Work Club, a group of animators working on their own independent short fim collaboration. The first of these films, Ghost Stories, is due out later this spring!
