Art of the Day: Oliver Jeffries

Oliver Jeffers sketchbook illustrations for the United Airlines in-flight magazine. It looks like they were drawn a pocket-sized Moleskine Cahier using waxy colored pencils and some white ink or gel pens. Gorgeous!

I made a bunch of maps for the United Airlines inflight magazine. They are all geographically accurate.

A Blank Book Called New Year’s

new years quote

 

I meant to post this on New Year’s Day but I left the lettering in my scanner at work and forgot to scan it. I found it this morning. The sentiment remains true and any day can be the first chapter of your new year.

This was drawn with a flexible nib dip pen in a Tachikawa wooden nib holder using Pelikan 4001 black ink on Borden & Riley 100R Rough Cotton Rag Marker Paper (which has been discontinued). I scanned it in black and white and colorized in Photoshop.

JooJoo, halfway through

This a few pages from Afsaneh Tajvidi, a Toronto-based artist and blogger. Her sweet watercolor illustrations and collages seemed like the perfect addition to the Halfway Through series. She combines found objects,  pen,  watercolor, colored pencils, gouache, stickers, washi tape and rubber stamps to create her vignettes.
