Artist/musician/bartender/comics brew-master Leslie Stein has been making comics since the early 2000’s. She started making her comics by cutting & pasting construction paper into colorful silhouettes. Her work has continued to morph, and evolve over the years. Today, you can see how she’s broken down her characters, and stories into minimal line work, expressive colors, and animated typography!

Leslie Stein began self-publishing her personal anthology Eye of the Majestic Creature in 2004. The series stars her cartoon alter ego Larrybear(along with a colorful cast of characters based off of real life friends), and has transformed over the years from mostly fictional stories to semi-autobiographical stories, today.

Fantagraphics Books has published two collections of Stein’s comics, and is publishing a collection of her Diary Comics in 2015.

You can read new, regularly updated Diary Comics on Leslie’s tumblr site here, and VICE features a weekly comic by her, as well.

Julene Harrison’s elegant paper-cut illustrations are as inspiring as they are gorgeous. Originally a fashion and constructed textile designer, Julene turned to paper-cutting a few years ago, immediately catching the eye of big clients from publishers to advertising, including WIRED, Random House, Nieman Marcus and many more. Her work is primarily text based, but portraits and a broad variety of illustrations are well suited to the detail and intricacy of her lovely medium. A UK native, Julene currently is based in Chicago.

Beatrice Coron is a storyteller. Her work is about letting the viewer construct their own interpretation of her scenes. After a series of odd jobs and an art degree from the Ecole des Beaux-Arts of Lyon, she moved to New York in 1985. Her body of work ranges from intricate cutouts to public works and screen prints. Currently her cutouts are a part of “The Art of Storytelling” exhibition at the American Visionary Arts Museum in Baltimore, Maryland. I’d highly recommend checking it out in person!

I don’t know about you, but I have a thing for mobiles. I have always had a mobile of some sort suspended in my studio. I find them calming, and I think that relaxed feeling helps me come up with ideas for illustrations more easily. Maybe it’s just me? :)

In my search for something new, I ran across these that sparked my fancy.

1) Calder inspired by Julie Frith | 2) Origami cranes by MadebyJo | 3) Origami stars by theStarcraft | 4) Matisse inspired by Puka Puka
