INSPIRATION: Steven Vasquez Lopez.

If you know me, then you know of my obsession with Staedtler Triplus Fineliners--the perfect marker/pen hybrids that come in a rainbow of colors in an award-winning easel case.  When I came across these mind-blowing works on paper by San Francisco-based Steven Vasquez Lopez, I assumed they were created with thread.  Wrong!  These works are ink on paper, using the dear-to-my-heart Fineliners!  How beautiful are these drawings, and how miraculously does the artist capture the warp and weft of fabric?

  1. I love these, especially how the deviant lines equal flaws, which is kind of a flip of Hundertwasser's comment, "Beware of the straight line and of the drunk line, but above all of the straight line. The straight line leads humanity to perdition." I also really like how they read as landscapes with topographical features.

    1. What a great quote in relation to these works! Of course, I was reading them as woven fabric, but I like your insight about topography/landscape. The graphic quality also lends itself to technology, I think. With the "deviant" lines, as you called them, they could possibly be read as a statement on the fragility of our technology-based culture. I love that these can be read in so many different ways.
