Pencil Test Depot

I don’t know how I’ve missed Pencil Test Depot all this time. It’s definitely a blog worth checking out – full of old pencil tests that will leave you feeling either inspired or daunted.



Julia Pott

I just discovered the work of Julia Pott. First, there’s her animation. The colors, the character design, the background art – it is all beautiful, and I recommend watching these immediately. (And head over to her Youtube account if you want to watch more)

Second, there’s her illustration (check out her Flickr here)

And third, she has an Etsy page full of tote bags, stickers, prints, and more.

Now I am fully inspired and ready to get animating. Happy Sunday! (and happy 200th post)

David Galletly

My Love For You is having a huge art fundraiser to raise money for the Gulf. They just posted a bunch of sneak peeks for what will be on sale, including this video of David Galletly’s work in progress. Makes me want to take out a pen immediately.

Eric Ailcane

Eric Ailcane has an enormous body of work – click the link immediately, and look at it all! Not only does he have pages and pages of illustrations, paintings, and etchings, but he’s also created murals and installations around the world.

Peter Baker

Photography by Peter Baker – chock-full 0f Midwestern nostalgia (especially all that nighttime snow)

Julia Randall

I skimmed over Julia Randall’s work a couple times before realizing that she works with colored pencils and not photography.

I was curious to read her bio, interested in both her process and her fixation with tongues, but I haven’t been able to find one.
