Jared Clark’s series of work, entitled Bleeder, is created using an interesting technique involving propping up Sharpie markers via his face and arms and ‘bleeding’ them onto paper. He even creates his art live in front of an audience. The results are visually challenging and playful.
Based in Washington D.C., designer Garrett Miller celebrates the impermanence of graffiti by doodling on glass window panes with dry-erase markers. Unfortunately he has stopped updating this blog, but the archives go way deep. Fun stuff.
Amsterdam-based design students Jaan Evart, Julian Hagen and Daniël Maarleveld build a printer that uses felt-tip markers instead of ink cartridges. Penjet is a modified inkjet printer that creates unique images where no two prints are exactly alike. So is there a pencil printer in the near future?
The felt-tip marker illustrations of Listen04 are childlike and paired with darkly humorous, Twitter-friendly wordplay. Traditional media with built-in social media integration? Genius.
TextaQueen (TQ) takes felt tip markers to a whole new level. They are used to create larger than life portraits full of detail and complexity.
