Kevin Lucbert is a French artist who graduated from the National School of Decorative Arts is Paris. He regularly participates in exhibitions and leads workshops of drawing. He is known for his collection of blue line drawings using a Bic pen or a Uniball colored pen. He lives and works between Berlin and Paris and produces drawings for French and international clients. On an interview with JungKatz he says this about the supplies he uses:
“I like to draw with simple elements that I can carry everywhere: sketchbook, biro pen, eraser, sometimes a ruler. These are simple tools that provide some boundaries as well as a lot of potential. I like the idea of expressing the most with the humblest implement. Right now I mostly use a blue biro BIC pen on Moleskine drawing paper. I love this paper. It is not too bright white but a little bit yellow. I also like to use Uniball colored ballpoint pens. I love working on monochrome pictures because they communicate directly the idea they want to express with great visual impact. Decorative and superficial elements become less important then. During my travels, I like to use watercolors to make spontaneous drawings. I prefer to do sketches in order to remember places I have seen and people I have met rather than photography.”

Loving the geometric compositions of Dutch illustrator/designer/artist Louis Reith. The Amsterdam-based artist create drawings, collages, paintings and installations. The abstract compositions are linked to his fascination with every aspect of the printed book. On an interview with LVL3 he says this about his process:
“It really depends on what I’m working on. The source material for my collages is derived from vintage books, in which not only subject and size play a role, but also the printing technique and color. The books are stripped from their covers and subject to observant deconstruction. What remains are loose pages and spreads that are processed, with their actual compositions as a coincidental starting point. It’s really about observing, shifting, thinking and taking time, letting it rest before I make the final decisions.”

In 1968 Donald Maier graduated from the Newark School of Fine and Industrial Arts, in Newark, New Jersey. He is well known for his watercolor and oil paintings of western landscape and the desert. He has had numerous one-man shows and has exhibited in many fine galleries. During the cooler months he would focus on everyday urban settings using dry pastels. We were so drawn to these pastel drawings that we decided to post them.
Much of his work can be viewed here on his official website.
