The Vanilla Soft-Serve Of Doodling

If doodling styles were ice-cream flavours, we'd all get brain-freeze and tummy aches well before we got to sample each one. Basically... there's a ton of different styles. Heaps! Plenty! Lots!

But when I think of "doodling" there's still one particular style that pops into my head first. Neat lines, black markers and no space left un-doodled. It's the vanilla soft-serve of doodling! And Filipino artist, Lei Melendres does it really, really well. Yum!

Sunday Grins!

Huh? Oh. I guess today is our last batch of hand-drawn answers for August. That went quick!

Let's finish with something fun and mysterious. Let's ring a doorbell and run away. Specifically: let's dish out a few anonymous notes to cute strangers, foolish lovers, grumpy neighbours, and housemates that leave cheese in the fridge and expect us not to eat it.

But first, here's a quick not-anonymous note. To this month's Sunday Grins crew, thank you guys! It's been fun sharing your doodles on the blog!

Sunday Grins! The Ultimate Hotel Room

To design my own hotel room is one of my doodling dreams! Imagine an unlimited budget for a cosy treehouse in the forest, elaborate night lights and (it almost goes without saying) a bedside soft-serve machine. Those are my essentials for a "dream" hotel room. What are yours?

Take a peek at the floor-plans our Sunday Grins crew came up with this week. From giant disco balls, to custom "sewer" rooms for the Ninja Turtles to slide in on. For Chloe McGregor (above) if there's a novelty-sized Yakult beverage on the room service menu, she'll be a happy customer!

Can Someone Please Translate This For Me?

Guten Tag! Auf Wiedersehen! That's about as far as my German goes. If only my second-grade German teacher had forced a few more foreign words into my soft young brain. I mean, one day we all made pancakes in class... is that even a German thing? Hmmm.

It's lucky then that my favourite German comic artist Nadine Redlich speaks mostly in pictures! Her drawings are cute, a bit smutty, and only sometimes need a helpful whisper from Google translate. Also her chill new series of "ambient comics" are surprisingly nice to stare at for a while.

Genießen! (that means "enjoy" in German.... I think)

Sunday Grins! Coffee Cups
of the Future

It's time for round two of our August Sunday Grins! This week we asked our ten doodlers to imagine what the average coffee cup might look like 1,000 years from now. Will we (or, more likely, our great-great-etc grandchildren) be getting our coffee fix from a drip in our space suit, or will we just pop a caffeine pill?

Maybe we should heed Krysthopher Woods advice (above) and start to be a little more suspicious of those humble liquid-holders!

Girlie Pains

The thing I like most about Mel Stringer's sketchbooks is that they feel like peeking into someone's diary. A diary that's tucked away under a bed with a threatening note doodled on the cover and hearts on the spine. The kind of diary that only your best friend is allowed to look inside, while eating cereal, listening to mix tapes and giving each-other homemade tattoos…

Unexpected Sketchbooks Of An Architect

I'm so in love with these sketchbooks of Sao Paulo architect, Gabriel Kieling. The precision and balance of an architecture blueprint, mixed with slumped shoulders and soft skin. I can't help but stare, and wonder about the moments these people are lost in…
