The Watercolor Dance Vietnamese artist Minh Dam has been living in Poland since 1991, and currently works as an architect and drawing teacher at Studio Lineare. His watercolor paintings are highly praised and awarded in events in Italy and beyond, and what I like about his work is how he adds blobs of water over paint for rain scenes, which creates movement and realism. Artwork © ShowSlow Apollonia Saintclair Miss Endorphine. Today I got very nice mail from Patrice Verry. Patrice is the creator of a published book called Miss Endorphine with 100 texts about almost everything which was illustrated by 100 differents great illustrators like Caza, Varenne and many others. Starving Artist Recipes I used to live in Seattle and one of the big things I miss about that city is Tom Douglas’s Serious Pie restaurant. It is seriously intense, with their stone-encased applewood burning ovens, exclusive charcuterie, and artisan cheeses. But my fav is their Yukon Gold Potato with Rosemary and Pecorino Romano Pizza. While flights from LA to Seattle aren’t super expensive, making this pizza (or as close to it as possible) is a better alternative. Due to my extreme laziness when it comes to kneading, I turn to Jim Lahey’s genius invention, the No Knead Pizza Dough. It’s foolproof, thank G-d, and makes 2-3 pizzas, which will keep in the fridge for a few days.

Working in a small studio at the backyard of his house, he says “I draw obsessively every single day filling books with ideas, cartoons and drawings.” He likes the background that printed words of the book pages offer as they give his illustrations deeper meaning and story. Here you can see some of his artwork and you can find the rest here.

Drawing with Leaves I’m loving these figurative sketchbook illustrations created around the forms of pressed leaves. They showed up in the Tumblr of the Sketching Backpacker who has some serious chops when it comes to documenting their travels using paint, collage, pencil, or anything else available, I definitely recommend getting lost for a moment.
