Brendan Wenzel


Brendan Wenzel has added many new animals to his website since the last time I posted. One of his prints is also featured on The Working Proof; it sells for $30 and %15 of the profits go to the Jane Goodall Institute.


Tree of Life Poster

Beautiful poster available at Degree. (In no way associated with the film, although both are wonderful.)


Because it’s raining in New York, and this is too sweet to go unposted:

“Dedicated keepers at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust’s Nairobi Elephant Nursery in Kenya protect baby Shukuru from the cold and rain, and the risk of pneumonia, with a custom-made raincoat.

Kelsey Oseid’s new Etsy

I posted about Kelsey‘s state bird project back in May. Since then, she has been busy adding states to the series and even starting an Etsy shop to sell the prints! Personally, I think they’d make great gifts for many occasions (know someone going away to college in the fall?) Go take a look!

Happy Shark Week!

In celebration of shark week, here are some beautiful character designs by Carter Goodrich, from his work on Finding Nemo. So have a happy shark week, and make sure to visit Goodrich’s website during the commercial break!

Andreas Deja

Samples from Andreas Deja’s animal sketchbook. And if you  haven’t been over to his blog yet, you’re not doing yourself any favors. He has continued to post wonderful material from Disney’s Nine Old Men and other classic artists, as well as some of his own work (such as the wonderful drawings above as well as this hilarious pencil test) Go!

Clyde & Wendy Watson

Illustrations from Father Fox’s Pennyrhymes (by Clyde Watson – illustrations by her sister, Wendy Watson.) Such charming illustrations – I especially love all of those balloons!

Bill Peet

Illustrations by Bill Peet, storyman for many of the early Disney films  (Jungle Book, 101 Dalmatians, Sword in the Stone, Alice in Wonderland, and Dumbo, just to start) Michael Sporn has been posting illustrations from Peet’s lovely book on his blog. I highly recommend taking a look at what’s already been posted and checking back for Part 3.

More illustrations after the jump.

Michaela Bruton

Sculpture by Michaela Bruton, as a part of her current exhibit “Oomph Trajectories” in Melbourne. Her work uses repetitive line and fine wire-working. “In this work Michaela examines how movement and rhythm can be generated through repetitive pattern, and whether this can create an illusion of life or ‘oomph’ in otherwise inanimate forms. The essence of time and hand made processes is reflected through works that pursue repetitious detailing.”- Craft
