I’m an illustration junkie. I love illustration, even though I can’t draw to save my life. The extent of my talent is stick men. Stick men in Hangman. Stick men in Hangman who are thilled to be hung because they look so bad. But I love illustration and would sell my soul (and probably anthing else that might interest whoever could give me that talent) to be able to draw.

So, in my current uninspired state (meme and list blogging – which reminds me I have to do Ticknart’s book meme), I thought I’d share another list, this one of the illustration blogs I like. If you’re at all interested check them out. They’re worth it.

Whateverings – One of the first illustration blogs I found, I don’t remember in what circumstances. I love Paula. And she steered me to Snoopy’s in Corpus (for great fish and chips), and she lives in Montreal. And I totally sound like I’m stalking her, eh?

Mattias Inks – Mattias is in Sweden I believe and I’ve been lurking on his blog for a long time. I love his quirky detailed drawings.

El Collage – I also love collage, and Mauricio knows what he’s doing…

Illustration Art – He posts wonderful illustrations by all sorts of artists

My dog ate my sketchbook – Rico Schacherl (I hope I spelled that right) an illustrator out of Johannesburg

@ Random – Jason Bronkhorst – another South African from Johannesburg

Space Junk – Ben Hobson. I love this blog.

Edited to add: I can’t believe I forgot this one: Daily Collage Project A collage a day. It’s great.

If you have more to offer, please feel free to share. It’ll give me that many more artists to stalk.

    That was weird. Looking through the stuff on The Dog Ate My Sketchbook was like flipping through one of my brother’s old sketchbooks. Do you also like the 3D illusion sidewalk art? I love that stuff. Here’s one:

  4. I know what you mean, I can picture what I would like to draw but the thought and the hand just cannot connect to make it happen.
