Inspiration: Drawing Autism

Unfortunately we have been sick for past few days (hm…more like a week), but Pinterest has been our 24h occupation and our savior. Our inspiration buckets are full and ideas are cooking.

Anyhow, before we get all crafty again, we just had to share this amazing book with you, it’s called Drawing Autism by Jill Mullin  and it was featured on 50 Watts.

Quote from 50 Watts:
Drawing Autism
is an incredible collection of artwork by people diagnosed with autism, from teenage amateurs to established artists.

Bellow are some of our fave images:


Nažalost, bolesne smo već par dana (hm…ili nedelju), ali tu je Pinterest da nas spase i okupira 24h. Naše inspiracione kofice su napunjene i ideje se krčkaju.

U svakom slučaju, pre nego što se ponovo bacimo na kreiranje, morale smo da podelimo ovu prelepu knjigu sa vama Drawing Autism od Jill Mullin,  predstavljenu na 50 Watts.

Citat sa 50 Watt:
Drawing Autism je neverovatna kolekcija umetničkih dela, koje su kreirale osobe sa autizmom, od tinejdžera amatera do afirmisanih umetnika.

  1. I’m going to look into this book. I have some ink drawings that I call my OCD drawings, and they are very dense and obsessive a bit like the top 2 pieces here. I love the bird one.

  2. That’s great, make sure you do. We think that it’s an amazing book and artwork is absolutely gorgeous. Would love to see your drawings, love, love, love linear density 🙂
    Glad that you like the post. You are very welcome.
    Thanks for reading!

    These works of art just made my heart stop, especially the Outsider. I have a close relationship with a high-functioning autistic guy and I can imagine him drawing something like the Imaginary Road Map, which was breathtaking. And I really love the perspective mind-trip in David’s Birds. I must look into this book!

    This is fantastic! I’m a retired special education teacher, and I shared the information about this project with several of my former colleagues. Thanks so much! I’m looking forward to seeing what you create when you’re not sick 🙂
