Over the past few weeks Chrysa Koukoura has been developing fine-line pen mountain-scapes which are beautifully done.
With a slight hesitancy in working with color, Koukoura uses fine pen on paper with meticulous detail, aiming to draw the viewer in for a closer look. She loves the simplicity and the restrictiveness of working in black and white, as it requires her to bring something extra out of an image that wouldn’t usually be there had a color been involved.

Katrin Wiehle is a Germany based illustrator, who likes tea, pencils and foxes. A Fulbright scholarship brought her to the US where she studied illustration at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta.
I love to see artist’s experimentations. The pieces in a series where you can see they pushed themselves to really get to the edges of the subject — trying everything they could think of. And I feel that Lourdes Sanchez does just that with her patterns. She takes it to the limits. I just chose her dots to focus on here, but there’s a lot more where these came from! Very fun!

Patterns show up often in my illustrations — on drawn tablecloths, figure’s clothing, wallpapers, backgrounds. I am always interested in seeing more patterns to inspire me to break out of my go-tos. I thought these were particularly lovely.
Do you use pattern in your work?
