Winter Scene with Two Men, Eugene Ciceri
Winter Scene with Two Men, Eugène Ciceri

In the Metropolitan Museum of Art Use the zoom or download icons under the image.

Ciceri's wonderful evocation of winter is at once both drawing and painting; naturalistic and stylized; controlled and free; monochromatic and yet rich with "color" in a way similar to Chinese ink paintings.

Gibson featured in Illustration magazine [feedly]

Gibson featured in Illustration magazine
// Gurney Journey

The upcoming issue of Illustration magazine (Issue #47) features the work of Charles Dana Gibson.

Gibson (1867-1944) was an illustrator from the Golden Age whose portrayals of self-confident women became a style icon known as the 'Gibson Girl.' 


Gibson's painterly pen-and-ink illustrations captured the attitudes and postures of the characters he portrayed, often in amusing or awkward situations.

The article by Gary Land tells the story of his life, from child prodigy to celebrity artist. It is well illustrated with 35 images, shot from original art. This issue also a feature article on pin-up illustrator George Petty.


Dan Zimmer, who publishes Illustration magazine, is also about to release a trade edition of his successful Kickstarter project, a book called The Golden Age: Masterworks from the Golden Age of Illustration

It's not a history or a textbook, but a picture book with over 218 color illustrations by 154 different artists. The book is a 9 x 12 inch hardcover and costs $44.95. It will ship in March, and you can preorder now.

Chris Turnham (update 2015) [feedly]

Chris Turnham (update 2015)

Chris Turnham, illustration
Chris Turnham is an illustrator who works in film and television as well as publishing.

His crisp, lively images of architecture, streets, people and plants always seem loose and free, despite their exacting draftsmanship and use of hard edges. Largely, I think, this is due to Turnham's deft use of close color and value relationships, with which he somehow coaxes softness out of hardness.

I particularly enjoy his stylized but naturalistic depiction of plant forms, and I was delighted when reproductions of some of his work for the movie Coraline was included in the "Coraline Mystery Box" I received as part of LAIKA's promotion for the movie back in 2008. (See my post on my Coraline Mystery Box and Coraline Mystery Box Images.)

Chris Turnham's work, specifically his silkscreen prints, will be on display in an exhibition titled "California Modernists" at Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, CA, from February 21 to March 1, 2015.

For more, see my previous posts on Chris Turnham (below).

Online Gallery: “The Colored Pencil Spectrum” [feedly]

Online Gallery: "The Colored Pencil Spectrum"
// Artist's Network

The winter 2015 issue of Drawing introduces us to the work of four colored pencil artists who use colored pencil to create tightly rendered drawings of very different varieties.

Cecile Baird–whose drawing of compact fluorescent light bulbs graces the issue's cover–creates dramatically lit still lifes. Anna Hammer draws the figure–usually the same figure, her daughter. Erwin P. Lewandowski draws streams, pools, lakes, waterfalls and other scenery inspired by his native Michigan. Art Venti imagines hallucinatory, semi-abstract landscapes built from abstracted geographic forms.

In the article, all four artists discuss what attracts them to their subjects and explain their process for creating realistic drawings in colored pencil. They also offer advice on such topics as how to draw water and how to light your subject. Here, we offer a gallery of terrific images by these artists that didn't make it into the pages of the magazine. To learn more, visit the artists' websites, and get your copy of the winter issue of Drawing. Enjoy!
