I’m thoroughly enjoying this drawing and all the drawings on Thomas Wellmann’s tumblr. And his flickr. And wow that portfolio too!

Thomas recently said hi to me on the twooter, and reminded me that we met at TCAF. TCAF rules!

There are so many great characters, colors, and textures to be found on Brigette Barrager’s portfolio! She’s a veteran of both Pixar and Disney, and it looks like she’s about to steal all the rest of the freelance jobs away from the rest of us. If it means more great stuff, I can live with that!

I was flipping through Dribbble today, and I was reminded, over and over, how great Melanie Matthews’s work is. Her work is bright and fun, well-designed and full of character.

The Hidden People is a stunning collection of new drawings by Cory Godbey. I immediately think of my childhood copy of Brian Froud’s The World of the Dark Crystal, and I anticipate poring over the pages of Godbey’s book in much the same way - cribbing shapes and textures and lines for my own drawings.

After you’re done scooping your jaw off the floor, go ahead and ogle some of the other gorgeous drawings and animations he’s made. Lordy, that’s good stuff.

Kevin Dart and pals have done it again - this is a spot-on spoof/embrace of the sexy swinging badass mystery-solving lovely-lady genre. The “Gadget Girl” heroines star in Looks That Kill, the new book and DVD, which they’ve just put up for pre-order.

In Dart’s previous Yuki 7 venture, Seductive Espionage, we see an elaborate backstory to a feature film that never was, but probably should have been. Don’t miss the earlier short, A Kiss from Tokyo.

Also, check out the fantastic fan art this fun and stylish project has inspired.
