Don Kenn (whose blog also confusingly lists him as John Kenn) is a Danish writer and director of childrens’ television shows. In his limited spare time he draws “Monsterdrawings” on Post-It notes; as he describes them “…a little window into a different world, made on office supplies”.
The drawings, of ghouls and ghosts, sea monsters and living islands, haunted woods and city streets, combine the imaginative ramblings of doodles with a technique of hatching tones and range of atmosphere and effect reminiscent of Edward Gorey.
Kenn often juxtaposes passages of dense hatching with areas of open space, to excellent effect.
I understand the fun of using unusual art supplies like Post-It notes, and I certainly understand the appeal of off-white drawing surfaces, because I prefer them myself; but I think Kenn’s Monsterdrawings are too good to be wasted on non-archival materials.
At the very least, somebody give the man a Moleskine.
