Artist Shantell Martin: Follow the Pen

Artist Shantell Martin draws stream-of-consciousness drawings on walls, cars, shoes, shirts, motorcycle helmets, pianos and more, often in front of live audiences. Her goal: Make and share visuals that are recognizably hers.

Martin explains her process and her visual language of line drawings, influenced by her experience as an avant-garde live-performance artist in Japan, in the 2013 profile by The New Yorker above: Follow the Pen.

Watch more videos about drawing and creativity, including The Red Thread, a time lapse of Sol LeWitt’s Wall Drawing 797, Making art with everyday objects, and Doodle Music by Vi Hart

Plus, a few DIY vids: How To Draw Your Hand In 3D, Marion Deuchars’ fingerprint art, and drawing faces with the shadows of crumpled paper.

And: The intricate, temporary chalk animals of Philippe Baudelocque.
