Revisiting Alex Eben Meyer's Sketchbook



Alex Eben Meyer is a Brooklyn based illustrator, and was the very first member to be spotlighted on Doodlers Anonymous back in 2010. We work in the same building in Brooklyn, and I was lucky to meet him a few months ago. Although his work has been featured here before, I'm a big fan of his latest observational sketches and thought I'd share some of them with you. These watercolor drawings are usually quick glimpses into slices of life; sitting at the local coffee shop, a neighborhood street corner, a roadtrip landscape, or the view from a window in New York. He also frequently posts figure drawing studies that share a similar sensibility. Controlled and loose at the same time, Alex's sketches seem to be edited spontaneously, stripping away specific details, while abstracting others. These drawings have occasionally found their way into his editorial illustrations, being utilized for clients like The New York Times, HP, and Design Sponge. There is a unique point of view and sense of humor in all of Alex's work, and to see more of it, you can go to his website, sketchblog, tumblr and twitter.
