Last weekend I saw UP! and it was seriously amazing. The story, the animation...just incredible. Um, I cried...a lot...and was thankful for the 3-d glasses I was wearing! I'm always in awe of animators, but I especially like seeing their character sketches because they draw in a completely different way than other artists. They can just "see" a fictional character from every angle and it's completely imaginative, existing in his own world. I'd love to do more sketching like that. Some excellent pieces from Disney's Hollywood Studios Animation exhibit-
Pixar's The Art of Up - on my Amazon wish list!

Hellen Jo- this girl is ridiculously funny and talented. Go over to her website to see what I mean. She did a series of illustrations on post-its and it will make you feel bad if you're ever like, "waaa I have no supplies to draw with!"
oooo she did a watercolor of Belle de Jour- one of my favorite movies! If you haven't seen it- get it! the costumes were done by Yves St. Laurent and every shot is eye candy.
Joseph Lambert- this guy is extremely prolific, super nice- and signed everything in pink pen! He was selling gorgeous handmade work for great prices. You MUST go to his blog and see the screen printing process for the middle poster (I bought one)- it's awesome.
Robin Ha- Makes comics and does beautiful fashion illustration. I love the 50s styling of The Cherry Twins.
Anna Bongiovanni- Also very, very nice and signed my poster after sketching another fan on the spot. Anna had a comic book called 100 princesses, each page with a drawing of a princess and a little story, really cute and funny. These are the posters she made to go along with it, they are adorable! Unfortunately she's sold out on Etsy, but check back, they're so worth it!

Illustration for My Mommy is in America and met Buffalo Bill by Emile Bravo
-Stephanie Yue is a RI based artist who does adorable children's work and these great mice!
I've been looking into printing business cards, so I'm quite keen on seeing what's out there right now, and what graphics work or don't in such a small space. The Twinkletoes Gang is deep pressed and came in an array of colors on thick creamy paper- very nice. Graphic black and white penguin card by Thomas Baehr- cutest graphic novel ever! I think the Comics Bakery is my favorite though, I love curved edges right now and the sweet sepia colors work so well.
