People I admire… Lora Zombie

I am really obsess with this artist, her name Lora Zombie a russian lady that is a genious in making amazing paintings using watercolors, acrylics, collage and mixing this techniques together. She is really talented and so inspiring. I am passing through a watercolor love period in my life and she is my Da Vinci in this area. Her work is sublime and at the same time intriguing. She admits to do “grunge art” but in my opinion (and in many for sure) she is an amazing talented artist. I dream for a private watercolor class with this lady!

Be yourself even if…

Last weekend I watched the movie “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” and one line really hit me.. it was something like “Welcome to the island of Misfit Toys…” So today I share with you a new drawing of the “Be yourself series” inspired in that phrase. If you want to check the previous drawings of the series “Be yourself”, just click in the drawings tag.

People I admire… Malin Bergström

I found this amazing artist and ilustrator this time offline. I am a huge fanatic of Nylon Magazine and one of their ilustrators is Malin Bergström. She is swedish and I have to admit I have a special love for her country, I have family in Sweeden and I went once in a beautiful summer and felt in love of this scandinavian country. She works mixing collage with ilustration in a unique way and her drawings are absolutely amazing. I love the colors she uses, always some black and white with hints of color. Here is her work, hope you enjoy it.

People I admire… Erik Marinovich

I found this artist online (as I usually do), he is a master in the art of fonts. He is a californian letterist and designer. I really like how he mixes drawings with letters. Here is some of his work, if you like you can go to his web here. He has worked for really big companies including New York Times, Newsweek and other comercial brands.

I ´ve been doodling around, and this is the result of the week. I have to say that I am really enjoying this series of doodles that I called “Be Yourself”, I think are good reminders mixed with a sweet drawing. Have a fantastic weekend! and for me I will keep practicing my art side.beyourself3

Love, Nina 😉

People I admire… Nan Lawson

I am passing through a period I am adoring ilustration. And this week, my new found in the artistic world, was Nan Lawson, a super talent girl living in Los Angeles. I adore every piece of his drawings. And something very interesting about her education is that she is a self taught illustrator, so that reminds me that with practice and focus everything can be achieve. I leave you with her art, hope you like it . :)

I am a big fan of illustration, and at some point I am trying to learn how to draw. So basically I am doodling a lot, and this blog will be the place to share my first doodles 😉 So today I decided to share with you one I did this week, hope you like it. This drawing is part of a series call “BE YOURSELF”. The first draw of this series is here if you want to see it.

My drawings

I am a big fan of drawings, I really enjoy to find lovely drawings or to discover new artists. Last week I write down about Marc Johns, a beautiful artist I adore. But beside this, I think I have a little little newborn artist in me, I adore to make drawings, doodles, create characters. For me is inspiring and funny. So lately I have been drawing more than usual and I even assist a little course that teach me how to paint and draw in Photosop. So prepare yourself for finding a big amount of drawings here and if I am lucky I would like that this year learn new techniques to develop my drawings.  I am truly excited with this hobbie I always have, but for the first time I am dedicating real time to it. Here are some of my random doodle-drawings, hope you like them.
