David Fullarton’s Enthralling ‘Pictures With Words on Them’

David Fullarton, simply, makes "pictures with words on them." Yet, despite that simple tagline adorning his site, examination of his mixed-media works yields much more than that. His figurative drawings not only reflect something deeply human; they also carry as much of weight of the humor in each work as the text. Fullarton can something that’s at once desperate, hilarious, pitiful, and somehow joyful.

Jamiyla Lowe’s Unsettling, Otherworldly Creatures

Jamiyla Lowe’s fantastical, mixed-media illustrations contain both an absorbing morbidity and humor. Her creatures are often unsettling in their ambiguity, often stemming from fictional worlds or plucked from nightmares. The artist was last featured on HiFructose.com here.

Editor Pick: Jen Uman

A series of pen drawings by artist Jen Uman from Southern California. Uman uses deceptively simple, monochromatic imagery to convey traces of her inner life, as well as delightfully familiar expressions and feelings we can all relate to.

The Absorbing Drawings of Futaro Mitsuki

Futaro Mitsuki's hyperdetailed drawings use pointillism and mythology to craft absorbing scenes. The Tokyo-born artist crafts works that infuse a broader art history with traditional Japanese iconography. With works like 2017’s "Monna Lisa,” that infusion is both startling and most present.
