1. Sagaki Keita (http://sagakikeita.com/)
Sagaki Keita is a Japanese artist who draws objects with thousands of whimsical characters. I like how he incorporated classic (drawing marble statues) and modern elements (character illustrations) into his work by using cheerful characters rather than lines and shadings. I took next image from his website, and it is one of his most recent works. It is titled “I wanna go to BIDAI! [Mars Broghese].” He drew this pretty big (65 x 50 cm) image with pen.

2. James Jean (http://jamesjean.com/)
James Jean is a Taiwanese-American visual artist known for fine art gallery work. He is more known as a cover artist for DC comics or for his mural design for the Prada Epicenter stores in New York. Yet he also has a lot of drawing works. I took following two images from his website. The first one, “Carrier” is drawn with ink and the latter, “Petit Courbet” with graphite. I was amazed by his unceasing creativity; his drawings are fictional and imaginative.
3. Faber Castell advertisement by Eric Yeo and Chan Hwee Chong (http://vimeo.com/27405001)
The following images are incredible advertisements of Faber Castell. You have to watch the video clip! The artist uses concentric lines – how unique! – and imitates famous works like Johannes Vermeer’s “Girl with Pearl Earrings”. I could not find blogs or websites of two artists. (I assume they drew these works only for the advertisement.)
