Envelope Drawings by Mark Powell

January 7, 2012

Christopher Jobson

London-based artist Mark Powell has chosen the backs of old envelopes as a canvas for these delicately rendered portraits of the elderly, using nothing more than a standard Bic Biro pen to create the delicate folds and wrinkles of their skin. I love everything about these. See much more of his work here and he sells a number of art prints over on Society6. If you liked this also check out the photography of Lee Jeffries.

Quilled Paper Work from Yulia Brodskaya

January 4, 2012

Christopher Jobson

I’ve been wanting to post the work of Yulia Brodskaya for almost a year and was thrilled to discover this new art piece entitled Loves Doves. Her work is unique in that it involves the placement of carefully cut, colored and bent strips of paper called quilling, giving her work a rich texture and depth. Julia was born in Moscow and now lives and works in the UK making quilled paper illustrations for some of the world’s top brands and publications. (via lustik)
