A peek inside the sketchbooks of Michigan based artist and illustrator Pat Perry reveals a fascinating world where the natural world seems on a direct collision course with the urban. Silhouettes of people and wildlife are filled with rich, textured stories that seem to be representative of dreamlike memories. The detail in Perry’s work is undeniably amazing, even the images above don’t quite do it justice, spend some time scrolling (horizontally) through his sketchbook blog to see what I’m talking about. I recommend following Perry on Flickr, Facebook or via his blog, and he has numerous reasonably priced prints available in his store including may of the works above. He also did a great interview a while back with Amir from Beautiful Decay which you can read over on the Huffington Post. (via booooooom)

Forget those pesky 3D printers that require software and the knowledge of 3D modeling and behold the 3Doodler, the world’s first pen that draws in three dimensions in real time. Imagine holding a pen and waving it through the air, only the line your pen creates stays frozen, suspended and permanent in 3D space. Sound like magic? Well it certainly looks like it, watch the video above to see the thing in action. The 3Doodler was designed by Boston-based company WobbleWorks who recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to sell the miraculous little devices that utilizes a special plastic which is heated and instantly cooled to form solid structures as you draw. I don’t know about you but for me this might have just won the most impulsive Kickstarter purchase in history. Check it out.

French street artist IEMZA tells IdN that he treats the creation of his outdoor paintings like sketches, incorporating a hierarchy of lines both organic and faintly architectural. The artist often utilizes decaying walls as a backdrop, where the underlying structures of abandoned buildings have been laid bare and work in perfect harmony with IEMZA’s imperfect, dripping line work. His subjects are equally terrifying and beautiful: hallowed-eyed faces both haunting and sensual, and other-worldly insects or monsters that completely dominate the canvas they live on. You can see much more of his work on Facebook and Flickr.

Artist Kelvin Okafor took the time to photograph over 50 steps as he drew his latest portrait titled Mana. I love seeing how artists create such detailed work, especially with portraiture drawings like this. You can see many more images of his work over on Facebook. (via booooooom, it’s nice that)

Man Spends 7 Years Drawing Incredibly Intricate Maze mazes games drawing

Almost 30 years ago a Japanese custodian sat in front of a large A1 size sheet of white paper, whipped out a pen and started drawing the beginnings of diabolically complex maze, each twist and turn springing spontaneously from his brain onto the paper without aid of a computer. The hobby would consume him as he drew in his spare time until its completion nearly 7 years later when the final labyrinth was rolled up and almost forgotten. Twitter user @Kya7y was recently going through some of her father’s old things (he’s still a custodian at a public university) when she happened upon the maze and snapped a few photos to share on Twitter. She was quickly inundated by requests from friends and eventually strangers who had endless questions, the most obvious being: are you making prints!? I’m not sure if prints will be made (I’ll definitely let you know if I hear anything), but it still boggles the mind simply looking at these few snapshots. (via spoon and tamago)

Update: Prints now available over in the Spoon & Tamago shop, just $40.

Artist Nicolas Delort lives and works in the suburbs of Paris where he creates evocative and imposing illustrations using ink and scratchboard. Each piece represents a moment from an unknown narrative leaving me filled with questions in the same way Chris van Allsburg’s The Mysteries of Harris Burdick leaves you curious of the circumstances behind each image. Delort is officially represented by Shannon Associates where you can see much more of his work and hopefully hire him to illustrate a graphic novel that I will wait in line to purchase. You can also follow him on Tumblr. (via behance)

Update: An earlier version of this post referred to these illustrations as being “Unknown Narratives” which is not entirely true. Indeed several of Delort’s ink drawings illustrate key moments from the Harry Potter series or Neil Gaiman’s American Gods. Thanks, all.
