As always when I see really pretty drawings I get very jealous. So Jakub Konvica’s work basically makes me green with envy. Damn him and his mad drawing skills!

Beautiful — and eerie at the same time…

Comment by Mikalee Byerman

I don’t get angry from envy, just opposite, I get curious and wan’t to learn how he can do the things he does for my benefit and aide in pursuit of perfection

Comment by willacepn

These are great! I have never seen a stylized alphabet like it and I rather enjoy the graphite.

He does have some very mad drawing skills!

p.s. Congratulations on the FP!

We all have some type of artistic ability. You just have to find your own!!!!

Comment by Stupid Nuns

nice drawings

Comment by Nathaniel W. Sommer

I can see why you’re jealous. However, you captured Konvica’s artistry wonderfully.

I am part of the “I wish I could draw” club as well. These are amazing. Thanks for sharing.

Comment by mmgoodsongs

Quite, quite spectacular in their detail and control of line. Thanks for introducing him – I checked out the link: many of his images are deeply disturbing but his ability is quite something else. Thanks again for the post

Comment by DoF@theinfill

these are wonderful; they remind me of meticulous but still half-fantastical medical drawings from the 18th c.

Comment by marinabenjamin

Agreed. I’m jealous too. Thanks for sharing the inspiration.

Very nice, although a bit eerie. Colonial Williamsburg has a great set of English artistic characters, as well. Check it out here:

Would make a very gothy/Brothers Grimm sort of typeface. Nice for the season…

Oh dear I share same sentiments… I have a virtual friend who’s a virtuoso in art and I dreadfully love every piece of his work, wishing I could have hands and imagination as his…

Comment by basangsisiw

That’s a terrifically creative alphabet in the center photo. Is there a clearer shot of it somewhere?

Comment by Karl Drobnic

Just awesome stuff…

Comment by edwardgangi

Comment by agustiasaridewi

Oh my… those are beautiful. I wasn’t familiar with Jakub Konvica – thanks for the great post : )

Comment by Jackie @Auburn Meadow Farm

They are pretty amazing, I am pretty much more than green than is possible with envy! I love the mix of macabre, and the more gentler side of nature.

Comment by Laura Davies

Yes, green with envy…I can imagine, me too!

Comment by Hanna

Brilliantly skilled and beautifully original, I think I’m at least as envious as you are!

Comment by Helen

I agree. People who can draw are beyond talented in my eyes. They are gifted. I wish I could just pick up a pencil and draw something beautiful at anytime… maybe that’s why I write. To compensate for that lack! Lol

Comment by Dee

This is just beautiful work! Thank you for having such a lovely eye to share and know its beautiful work, theres for sure talent in that…S

OMG! That is just AMAZING!!!! :)))

Comment by tomajoksaite

Not only a crazily gifted person with wonderful drawing skills, but a clever one who sees things with humor and charm.


Comment by morristownmemos by Ronnie Hammer

Envy is a good start, it shows you that you’re capable of creating great things too! (not necessary the same)
So instead of becoming very jealous, transform that energy raising up into something… put it to work! :-) If not, jealousy could “eat” you from inside.. and block your own creativity.

Comment by Thoughts Designer

love it!!!

Comment by randomlyabstract

These are beautiful and unnerving – like some Hammer House version of medieval illumination. Thanks for sharing.

Comment by richannkur

Lovely bit of lateral thinking to start the day. I love to see such intricate, creative ways of expressing something so age-old as the alphabet for it to take new wonder.

Comment by Darcy Isla

Some people are too talented…. Stunning

Comment by customlightingmelbourne

and he makes me green with envy too! :)

Comment by Gabrielle

Envy is poverty. Admire and find pride in your own skills and develop them through being inspired from others. Enjoy you too
