$75 Stick Figures

Did you save your childhood drawings? Justin Swaby is selling stick figure drawings at $75 a piece. Okay, maybe some of them are a little more than stick figures; there are robots. Robots with hearts, hamsters, and even dreams. 

The simplicity of Justin Swaby’s work seems to highlight the compositional clarity and trendy colors.

Swaby wasn’t the first to try this out, though. Sam Brown of explodingdog.com has been doing this for a while, and gathered a following. Brown draws inspiration from his internet audience who submits, via email, possible titles. He selects the titles and incorporates them into his work, bringing them alive with stick figures and bold colors.
