Some ballerina thumbnails I did for The New Yorker, AD the excellent Jordan Awan, who asked for something a little more visually abstract. I had such a blast making these!
Everyone: meet Angie Wang. She just blew my mind with these illustrations. Pure, elegant, minimalist, dynamic. Killing me! Don’t forget Angie’s website too.

Richard Gnann IV. Miracle in the Tomb 2012
I had a drawing class with Richard a couple years ago. Glad to be able to keep up with his work via Tumblr, because these drawings give me chills.
Can’t wait to do this
Is this how you do it? Draw your shape out with water first? But then, how would you do small type, like in the last post? Or would you just make it very large? (See my last post for context.)
ATTENTION ARTSY/DESIGN-Y PEOPLE:
Can someone show or tell me how to do watercolor/ink shapes with colors that run into each other but have nice clean edges, like in the title here? I have been curious for ages! How do you allow the colors to run but not bleed outside the shape you want? If you have any tips, hit up my ask box!
