Drawing the Cityscape in His Head



Bricks, windows, arches, curves, angles, roofs... you name it, if it's part of the city architecture, it's very likely Daniel Van Der Noon has drawn it.

Everything about his art inspires me. They are all hand-drawn and inked directly onto a wall, window, or canvas. No prior sketching or mapping. It's just one stroke here, another line there and soon enough buildings and rooftops appear.

In his own words, "I like to travel a lot, visit new cities, see new places, hear new noises. Through these skylines I guess that the perks that I experience from traveling around are amplified in ink, and the memories recorded in these ongoing sprawls of images and text."

You'll find plenty to like in the following images, and I guarantee you'll especially enjoy the process videos after the fold.

Doodlers Anonymous was Hacked

To all our friends, over the last 72 hours Doodlers Anonymous was hacked 4 to 5 different times. The hackers replaced our content with pornographic and offensive images and words. This has not been fun. We have since taken down the content and are doing our best to monitor it going forward, but unfortunately many of you are still seeing the offensive content loading up in your RSS readers. This is due to it being cached in the RSS feed on some of these readers, like Pulse and Feedly. We are very sorry for the inconvenience and are doing everything we can to keep this from happening again.

Illustration Around the World



I would love to walk a mile in Pablo ientile’s shoes-- which are probably quite worn by now considering he recently spent six months journeying through thirty cities in ten Asian countries. Pablo, who likes drawing as pablo bear when on the road, is traveling the world meeting and collaborating with artists on his brilliant comic book project. Each artist, uber-talented in their own right, will illustrate the parts of the comic that occur in their cities resulting in a first-person narrative with a crazy cool mashup of styles. Can’t wait to see the end result! Follow Pablo's journey online at illustrationaroundtheworld.com or mobile via his Instagram.

Not All Drawn Objects Are Created Equal

When I doodle and draw, my preference is to make it of something tangible. I am partial to simple, ordinary, everyday objects. This is the very reason I am falling for the bold lines and shapes of Sofia's drawn vases. I wish they were real, sitting up on my window sill.

Sofia Schizas is also a master of craft, making things under the name of Hey Sosi. You're crazy if you don't want one of her "Cosmic Cushions."

Member Spotlight: Juan Pez





I'm really digging the workspace pics form Juan Pez's desk. His table-top is messy and covered with ink, brushes, scraps, markers, tape, rulers…barely enough room for the drawing itself. And I love that his work is just the same, a mishmash of sloppy characters and comic-like illustrations.

Giveaway: One-year of Zines by Josh LaFayette





Well, well, we haven't done one of these in a long while, a giveaway that is. The man, the myth, the legend, Mr. Josh LaFayette is at it again. Making drawings, lots of drawings, about anything and everything and he's binding them into zines with his own hands and shipping them to you every month, for all of 2014.

We're lucky enough to have an entire year's subscription to giveaway and it's happening right now. Don't delay, play along. Answer the following question (by Friday at 11am Eastern) in the comments of this post and we'll pick our favorite (one answer per person please). You never know, Josh might even be kind enough to draw the winning answer.

Question: If your life was a zine, what would be the title?

For those of you with 50 bucks to spare and a desire to support one of the most genuine guys, illustrators and talented folks out there, go ahead and buy your own subscription here (discount code: doodlin) or at the very least, follow Josh's work on the web or on twitter. And if you're inclined to watch him make a crazy fool of himself, his Vine account is tons of fun.

*These images are from his 2013 zine collection.
