The Magic Markers of David Gomez

by jennine on October 6, 2009

You know, it’s been a while since I’ve posted about art… what happened? I don’t know..but I miss it. It’s also been a while since I broke out the markers…well that’s more my husband’s gig.. he can actually make cool sh*t with his marker set. Yes, I’m serious. While browsing through my art feed, I came across a post from darling My Love For You is a Stampede of Horses talking about one of her readers David Gómez…who can do one helluva portrait… while he does a combination of real people and celebrities, like Karl Lagerfeld, Rei Kawakubo, Chloë Sevigny…Lykke Li and Agyness Deyn… the celebrity is probably the point where I go..”HaHa look at Karl!” I just love the playfulness and simplicity of the drawings, like coloring book gone on an acid trip. Somehow, we need more of those.

I laughed so much at Kaiser Karl - he would recoil at wearing so much colour!

LOVE LOVE LOVE this. They are so clever and fun. I would definitely frame and hang one of these in my home. I love how innovative they are. Fashion is art and color and life and fun and glamour. These are all of those things put together…althought I agree with Make Do Style…Karl Lagerfeld would DIE if you put that much color on his Chanel-clad body. haha

I remember seeing some of these a while back, they are SO beautiful! I soooo wish I was that good with markers lol. I really do wonder how he decides upon which patterns to use for which people. Hope you’re having a wonderful week :)

Love the Agyness Deyn drawing! The Karl one is awesome as well, and I think it makes him actually look pretty darn good! He still has his signature black shades. This artist really has some great work, overall.
