Hi I’m Vanessa and I run inkblok from my sunny (sometimes), Brighton studio on the south coast of England.
My background is in Art, Architecture and 3D Design although I have been creating and drawing since I was a very little girl!
I love detailed drawing, pattern and typography and I hope for inkblok to become my main creative outlet for my illustrative prints and stationery.
Charles Eric William Carroll: Drawing is my love. I love to draw.
I have a bad day job…doesn’t sound too unfamiliar does it? well, I have decided I NEED to make a new way out of that junk and on to something I can’t stop doing! so here I am!
Want a drawing? I’m down to draw it! Want to be friends elsewhere? I’m down too! Charles Eric William Carroll on Facebook will bring you to my profile, or facebook/charliecarroll. I have a daily drawing sketchbook up too.
Besides drawing, here’s some other cool stuff you may like too! Hiking, climbing, playing guitar, drums, bass, sitar, making music on the computer, jamming with your brother and friends, high-fiving the President, drinking tea, exploring new land, meeting people, people watching, trying new things, being nervous because you’ve never done it before but you really want to try it out so you are doing it anyways, multi-tasking, making people smile when they should be smiling (which is always), and so more I’m sure you could add to the list.
When you are not much of a city person but you are stuck in the city you may as well focus on the best parts. I like the sunset golden light time of day. My favorite. Even makes the city seem at peace for a change.
These drawings are part of a series. They are all hand drawn. The drawing you are viewing will be replicated BY HAND rather than an artist print. It will be drawn specifically for YOU once ordered!
Retro Whale: This gangsta bear was inspired by Master P lyrics and blue bears with radios.
Nanami Cowdroy was born in Sydney, Australia with close bonds to her mixed Japanese-European heritage. Growing up with such contrasting cultures and surroundings, has greatly influenced her style of art and creative expression.
By intertwining complex characters and highly detailed objects her pieces reflect a juxtaposition between foreign and familiar entities and environments. Her imagination is illustrated through works which are elaborate and exotic. She is drawn to subjects, which may on the surface seem delicate or fragile, but are given strength and depth through her pen and ink techniques, intricate hand illustrative style and mixed media compositions.
I’m loving these illustrations by Brendan Wenzel!
