I don't know anything about this artist, found through Pinterest. The drawing is what grabs my attention. And the composition of figural elements stacked on top of each other. The color use seems very resolved and refined. And translating drawing into sculpture, or vice versa seems to have been a revelation. Here is a website. Here is a blog.


Inspiration to carry a sketchbook.

 Take a look at more of Timothy Schorre's sketchbooks here. I used to do lots more drawing in public places. It works really well when you are in a busy spot where everyone is paying attention to something else so you can look at them and the scene freely. Flickr is a good place to see lots of sketchbooks. I don't care for the "art journaling" groups. The sketchbooks there seem to be all about achieving some sort of effect with materials. I prefer the purely mark-making sketchbooks, or the ones like these that capture an ordinary moment. 


Sophie Truong shares Sharon Etgar

Thanks to Sophie Truong, here, I have been introduced to Sharon Etgar. She sews in old ledgers, among other things. You can see more at her website,  here. She is showing in NYC currently at  Davis & Langdale. The idea of a stitched diary is very appealing. Sophie did some new work this winter at the Mills Gallery in Boston. The show was composed of a group of artists showing their process in real time. Here is some of what Sophie worked on.

And Justine Hand of Designskool Blog did a studio visit with Sophie earlier this month. Check it out here. Just in case you don't know, Sophie also makes beautiful handmade leather  goods which she sells from her shop, here, and at select shows.
