i’m jealous of robert lansden

Oh my. Drawings. Crazy beautiful, meticulous drawings by New Orleans artist Robert Lansden. I didn’t know that a person could do this with graphite, ballpoint pen, and/or gouache… I thought that’s what Spirograph™ was for! {Am I aging myself with that reference? Probably.} Not only are his tiny little perfect lines beautiful, his colors & compositions are stunning. I thought I had my post when I found all of these mesmerizing circles… and then I stumbled onto these:

Drawings, people. Drawings.

{I found Robert when I sent out Facebook/Twitter posts saying that I had no one to be jealous of. Well, thanks to Erik Barthels, now I’m jealous of Robert… and to the other 82 [!!!] of you that sent in suggestions, THANK YOU! I’ll be thinking ‘damn, I wish I thought of that’ for the next two months!}

    This is amazing and so time consuming!
    Art like this one is why I hated when parent would tell my daughter’s friends to stay within the lines when the did drawings or painting activities.
    We each defines our lines…

    I love the drapery pieces; they are jaw-dropping!

    I was thinking about my long lost Spirograph before I read your reference !
    (I need to check ebay).
    Those draperies are unreal.

    Que la fiction soit ou ne soit pas une mauvaise fréquentation pour les sociologues, comme s’en inquiète un futur colloquedont nous relayons l’appel, c’est en ligne que s’étend désormais le champ sociologique : la jeune et excellente revue numérique Implications philosophiques s’intéresse à la “Vision du social”, la réédition duclassique de Pierre Macherey,Pour une théorie de la production littéraire(1966) se fait sur papier mais aussi en ebook. Mieux : la sociologie de la littérature, sociocritique, sociopoétique et autres approches sociales du littéraire ont maintenant un site qui leur est dédié, le site des ressources Socius, animé par une équipe internationale de chercheurs proposant notamment unlexique de concepts sous la houlette d’Anthony Glinoer et de Denis Saint Amand. Ce projet s’ajoute à des lieux déjà existants : la revueCOnTEXTESet à laliste de diffusion Sociusqui a fêté ses 10 ans d’existence.
