Wally Torta’s Journal

Wally Torta
Wally Torta’s Journal is a wonderful sketchblog that ranges from simple and direct observations from everyday life to flights of fantasy to meeting doodles to cartoons and drawings in a style influenced by B. Kliban (one of my absolute favorite cartoonists). Most often, though, he seems to simply draw what’s in front of him. Worth checking back often.

Derek Thompson

Derek Thompson
Derek Thompson is a comics artist, storyboard artist and concept artist. Most of all though, he draws monsters. Big, little, scary, silly, weird and wild monsters. He even has a Monster of the Day feature and a Monster Vault.

The site also features a gallery of his professional work and a Sketchbook that happens to include some nice travel sketches.

Julian Beever

Julian Beever
Julian Beever is probably the best known practitioner of “Pavement Art”, highly rendered drawings on city sidewalks. Some of them are portraits or reproductions of old masters, but the most interesting are anamorphic distortions that, when viewed from a certain angle, give a striking illusion of 3 dimensionality. The technique is reminiscent of the old master trick of creating apparently distorted paintings that only assume proper appearance when viewed in the curved surface of a reflective vase or bowl.
