Inktober!

Check out the sketchbook of PC&V Senior Art Director Tracy Orozco. This month, she is inspiring the artists in the office to create their own gallery of ink drawings.

“I just want to practice my craft!” she exclaims.

Her collection of daily drawings portray women in all sorts of “me time” moments. Love ’em, Tracy!

Artist In Action – Riusuke Fukahori

A work of art is conceived in the creative consciousness.  It starts off as a simple idea, which keeps being developed until the artist is ready to make it come to life.  That’s why it’s so mesmerizing to watch an artist in action.  Each stroke of the paintbrush, pen or pencil allows a Citizen of Imagination to become part of our world.

Artist In Action – Lev Yilmaz

Lev Yilmaz is best known for his YouTube series “Tales of Mere Existence”.
His unapologetic pessimism and candidness gives a surprising amount of depth to his work.  Equally as surprising -and infinitely more unsettling- is how oddly relatable his comics and videos are.
You can check out more of his stuff at: IngredientX.com

Climbing Your Mountain (An Artist’s Journey)

Alex Noriega is an artist from Barcelona. He likes making cute comics about the life lessons he’s learned. We’ll be posting more of his stuff tomorrow, but today we’ll be featuring one of his longer comics. It ties in with yesterday’s video post about the journeys in life we all embark on.

Noriega depicts his personal struggle to become an artist.  Although he illustrates his own struggles, the insights he gives are easy to relate to.

Let us know in the comment section if you can identify with what Noriega is saying.

Artist In Action | Conrad Roset

The archaic meaning of “inspire” is “to draw breath”.  Perhaps the reason why it’s fascinating to watch artists in action is because seeing their process of creation creates something in you.  Your mind becomes pregnant with thought and eventually gives birth to new perceptions -which come to life through your own creations.  In that way, art is alive.  It is conceived by inspiration and becomes an inspiration in itself -in the same way that people are conceived by the life of another and are likewise needed to generate more of the same life forms.

Conrad Roset is an artist from Barcelona, Spain.  He finds inspiration in the female form.  This is him drawing breath to one of his muses -making them come to life with bursts of watercolor.
