Doodling Dashing Strangers

I’ve been really into Pam Steenwijk’s portraits the past couple of days. Pam is an artist from the Netherlands who plays with details of the face in charming ways. Sometimes with cutesy blushing cheeks, other times with mysterious shadows. Not to mention the expressions! Pam nails it when it comes to drawing nuanced looks that are disarmingly sensitive. I only wish I knew the story behind these effortlessly stylish cool kids. It’s likely that the enigma is part of the aesthetic appeal! Don’t forget to check out Pam’s tumblr for more doodles of dashing strangers.

Doodles Blooming in a Sketchbook

flower doodle

I'm finding calm today as I look through annnsunn’s tumblr. The artist’s wonderfully photographed sketchbook has a simple floral theme, and they love to include the real life flower that inspired their drawing. Seeing the artwork alongside the flower that inspired it is especially enjoyable thanks to the gorgeous composition of both the drawings and the photos. It’s neat, clean, and uncomplicated. No wonder it clears my thoughts just by looking at this garden on paper.

Trippy Sketching

Some things don’t need to make sense for you to enjoy them. That’s what I’m finding out as I look through the drawings of Hatice Çiçek, a doodler from Istanbul. It’s a wild world of illustrated madness. Her drawings are rough and meandering, often leaving no space wasted on the page. The cartoonish style looks elementary at a glance, but that’s a deceptive simplicity. The warped, trippy composition of Çiçek’s sketches creatively weaves together a crazy amount of lines and patterns when you really look at it!

Only Pieces of Perfection

It always gives me a kick of inspiration to see that a superb art piece way out of my league began as a rough sketch that's closer to my level. Emokih's realistic hand drawn portraits are not doodly at all, but I can’t resist sharing the WIP photos she posts. It's so intriguing to see a portion of meticulously perfected detail surrounded by the very basics of a sketch. One little corner that she labored intensively on, while the rest is left in its bare bones. I can't help finding it more interesting than the completed pieces sometimes.

These Pen Drawings are ON POINT

Dot dot dot . . .

My mind is a little blank after looking at Pet & Dot's relaxing ink art... I love the smooth gradients and sharp geometry formed by constant, deliberate tapping of a pen tip on paper... Every tiny dot matters, each little speck works with the others to come together as a visual treat for the eyes... It's calming to see the artist's progress photos of each page being drawn drop by drop, dot by dot... You can even see some short videos of the hand-drawn process on Pet & Dot’s blog!

Coloring Up A Storm in the Doodlers Anonymous Epic Coloring Book

doodlers anonymous epic coloring book

There's nothing that makes our day like seeing the way our books inspire others to color up something beautiful. We discovered Dede Willingham a month or so ago when she hosted a live stream of herself coloring one of the pages from our Epic Coloring Book. The stream (which you can still watch on her uStream channel) also included Dede walking us through the book, showing the many pages she had already colored in, and discussing her favorite illustrations. Her colored pages looked phenomenal and she had so many kind words to say about our book to her community. The way Dede colors is special because she doodles in her own additions to the illustrations that weren't there before. It's easy to just fill in between the lines, but Dede really interacts with the art and builds on it with her own flair. She adds tattoos, or wind and snow, and other exciting details that I'd never have expected.

Naturally, Dede swept us off our feet! She's a portrait artist who draws a wide range of things from pets to celebrities for commissions. In her free time, she enthusiastically participates in and engages with the online art community. She does a live stream every Monday at 9am (some Wednesdays and Fridays too) in which you can watch her draw or color. The show is called Coffee and Art in the Morning and it’s amazing to see her in action, so give it a look. Below are some more pages from our Epic Coloring Book that Dede worked her magic on. It’s simply enchanting to find how many small details she weaves in to breathe new life into these black and white pages.

Doodles of an Architecture Student

Jaewon Yeo is an architecture student living in South Korea who makes impressive black and white images of city life. Soft and hazy watercolors create a powerful balance between black and white, held together by the richest shades in between. Like being out on a foggy day, the details look minimal, but still defined enough to create a detailed glimpse of city bustle. See more of Yeo’s work on her tumblr!
