Mia Nolting

Lovely sketches and designs from San Fransisco bay area native Mia Nolting. I first heard of her from a friend, who had ordered a copy of a beautiful, roughly handcrafted book from Nolting—she silkscreens and photocopies myriad collaged and drawn images, and stitches them together into bewitchingly unpredictable documents. The rest of her work also has a delightfully collaged, sketchy aesthetic, whether it is a commissioned piece (her clients include Penguin Publishing, The New York Times Magazine, and Toms Shoes, to name a few) or a personal drawing. Since returning from a residency in Cape Town, South Africa, she lives and works in Portland Oregon. I especially love the way she integrates textures and text with her delicate line drawings, and the spontaneous, nearly haphazard feel of all her pieces is entirely irresistible.
