Oh my! A Manga-inspired Handdrawn Daily Planner

What is it about artists’ diaries that I find so captivating? I used to think I love them because I am a nosy person who likes to snoop on people’s business, but I’ve just been proven wrong. I can hardly read a word from @oharu1205’s instagram account, and yet here I am—scrolling months deep into their daily planner. Last Christmas, Haru Suzuki committed to posting a photo each day of a doodle from their journal and the project is still going strong. The bubbly manga style fills me with a sense of sunshiny optimism from the drawings of what was on the artist’s mind that day. It’s a log of daily life brimming with the colorful exuberance of a doodler who thinks everyday is special, even the ones where it seems like nothing much happened have something worth jotting down and illustrating.

Doodling the Mystical

Sometimes I peek into the hashtag #doodlersanonymous on instagram just to see what kind of trouble doodle addicts are cooking up. In today’s case, @nothingwolf’s Inktober series that he has been sharing on our hashtag got me really excited. The artist is Federico Tobon, who also goes as wolfCat. Diverse lines vary between thick black or fine dotting, the strong alongside the delicate in mysterious harmony. The symmetry of simple shapes form compelling compositions that naturally pull your eyes toward the peak of their design. I enjoyed his series of doodles on sheet music, with crazy characters creating chaos over the orderly notes. Clearly, wolfCat is not one to follow the rules and the results are nothing short of mystical.

Biopunk - Organic Neon Doodles

These incredible doodles blur the lines between scientific and surreal. Peter Mai has a gift for combining bold lines and neon paint in striking combinations to draw abstract forms with an exciting curiosity surging through them. The flow in Mai’s composition fills the illustrations with motion, even in their stillness. Oddly anatomical imagery with punches of vivid color feels like biology diagrams on a sugar rush. I’m not sure what I’m looking at, but it’s alive and fascinating.

Coloring Book Interview Series, #17: BadBuzz

There’s something nostalgically exuberant about BadBuzz’s doodles. He has a playful comic-like drawing style that distinctly pops out from the rest — which is something impressive considering each page in our Coloring Book is illustrated by a different artist. BadBuzz likes to keep it simple (most of his drawings are only done with pen and pencil), so our interview with him is short & sweet to match!

What My Daughter Wore - Sketching Tween Street Style

tween style doodle

Young girls don’t get enough credit for their fearless attitude towards how they present themselves. I hadn’t really thought about it until I found @what_my_daughter_wore on instagram, a project by Jenny Williams that documents the daily stylistic choices of tween girls. In an effort to focus more on her art, Williams challenged herself to draw more every day. Being a stay at home mom, she was frequently swarmed by her three kids and their many friends while trying to work. Instead of letting it disrupt her, Williams used the youthful madness as a source of inspiration.

The muses for What My Daughter Wore are not only her daughter, Clementine, but also her female friends. These color pencil drawings expressively capture the enthusiastic creativity each girl puts into self-expression through her appearance. Jenny Williams has said that the "focus is the tween years, because at that age it’s still possible to find kids dressing entirely for themselves, without regard for trends or peer pressure." It's true that whether their outfit looks zany or chic, the drawn girls are unselfconcious and unpretentious in a way that comes as a breath of fresh air. If you love these spunky style chronicles, check out the What My Daughter Wore book !

Rooting Yourself - Part Girl, Part Plant Doodles

Leaves haven’t started turning orange yet where I am, but the seasonal change in the air has me filled with anticipation for it. It’s a fitting time for me to come across Mali Fischer’s artwork. Her plant-girls exude a gentle sense of calm that I can’t help sinking into. Through muted coloring and therapeutic repetition of lines and patterns, Fischer pens surreal images of gentleness and dream-like serenity. On pages with bare backgrounds, the focus never leaves the lonely girls and their leaves.

Drawing On Location

Amara Strand is an interior designer and 3D artist who is determined not to lose touch with the non-digital side of her creativity. She carries her small sketchbook around Toronto, and brings a little piece of the local architecture and scenery home with her at the end of the day. Her almost pocket-sized urban sketches are made truly special by Strand’s warm watercolors. Strand said, “I love to see colourful watercolour running, seeing the lines go on my sketchbook and never knowing exactly how the sketch will turn out when it is done. This excites me.” 

I adore the spontaneity of an artist being surprised by her own finished product. The drawings have a rough sketch quality without meticulous detailing, but it’s a good thing to have when you are drawing places and things right in front of you—you won’t get so lost in perfecting the page that you forget to enjoy your cup of coffee.
