Giveaway: Nature Anatomy by Julia Rothman

If you don't know the work of Julia Rothman, you better get to it. I've been a fan of her work for as long as I can remember, from her lovely hand-drawn patterns to her sketchbook pages of intricate drawn buildings. She's also authored and illustrated some of my favorite books, like Drawn In and Hello NY. And now she's released another book to rival all the others.

Nature Anatomy is 224 pages of hand-drawn goodness and features tons of drawings, diagrams, and dissections from the natural world. Julia takes us on a visual tour of trees, birds, insects, animals, wildflowers, ecosystems, and so much more.

You'll want this book and we've got one to giveaway. To be in the running, just leave a comment on this blog post with your single favorite thing to draw from nature. We'll pick a random winner from the hat. Comments close July 6th (Monday) at 11am Eastern. Good luck everyone... and for those of you that can't wait, you can get your hands on the book today on Amazon.

UPDATE: We have a winner! We randomly pulled a name from the hat and... congrats to Catharine Mi-Sook! Your copy of the book will be mailed out this week. Enjoy and thank you all for participating.

Serial Doodling

I began following Eric von Boxtel on Instagram a few months ago, when his layered and full-colored doodles popped up on my feed. They instantly caught my attention because there's probably nothing I like more than thick black doodled lines over a backdrop of color. It looks easy, it looks like a mish mash of a mess, like a kid who might have gotten away with a box of markers, but it's not at all the case.

These scribbles and shapes of color are intentional and come together so perfectly. I love looking at each spread, trying to find something new or to figure what he's drawn first on the page. If you want to be mesmerized for a full minute and forty-five seconds, watch this time-lapse video.

New Contributor: Emily Joynton

Great news DA readers. We have a new semi-regular contributor to the blog. A few months back I met Emily over some coffee and we immediately hit it off. She's a hard-working, freelance illustrator, that is enthusiastic about all things art. Emily is also aspiring to get more into editorial and short-story illustrations, you can follow her journey on her website and Instagram feed.

She's already shared some great posts with us, like the Illustrated Travel Journals of Chris Buchholz and the Art Direction and Adolescence of Alex Citrin.

I'm definitely looking forward to more of her features, now let's put our pens down for a moment and give her a warm welcome :)

Make-Me-Robo

Since launching our open call last week, we've been in quite the robot mood. And it seems it's not just us who have got the bug. Our good friends over at the Sktchy app challenged their users over the weekend to transform their community's photo portraits into their robot counterparts, and the results are simply awesome.

For those of you unaware, Sktchy is a really great mobile app that encourages you to draw everyday by delivering inspiring photo portraits for you to render in your own unique style. I've been a fan since its launch. Here are some of my favorite from this past weekend...

Open Call / A Robot Coloring Book

Over the next few months we plan on printing our second mini-coloring book. Our first -- The Quintessential, Quirky, Compendium of Cats -- featured 28 global artists in a mashup of styles honoring our feline friends.

This time around we are looking to expand our mini-book to feature over 35 artists and the theme will be robots! In celebration of everything bot - from clanky vintage metal and rusted bolts to B movie retro-futuristic robots - every page, with a drawing from a different artist, will make you want to robot dance.

Our only requirement is that the illustration fall within the robot theme- be it a unique homage to a beloved robotic icon, an uber-shiny mod design, or maybe an entire family of dark, overlord, microwave robots. It's your call, it's your page. The working title of the book is, "Blinking Lights & Beeping Parts: A Robot Coloring Book Collection by Doodlers Anonymous."

The deadline for submissions is April 2nd. Get submission details and upload instructions here

A Drawing Desk Like No Other

As a parent of two little doodlers and a daily drawer myself, I can't help but fall in love with this Kickstarter project by The Cardboard Guys. They've taken everything great about fostering creativity in a kid and magically created a drawing desk and chair made of cardboard, that's fun to build, functional to use, and best of all designed to be doodled all over. The top of the desk even comes with cubbies to store all your art supplies and built to close away when not in use.

No joke, I want one for myself. They've only got 8 days left to meet their Kickstarter goal. Support them (before it's too late) and little ones will rejoice everywhere.
