Hello, strangers.

Have you ever had a habit that you kept to yourself, then one day realized that this habit actually has a name? And people (lots of people, maybe) actually do this thing too? When I was a kid, I always did anonymous little gestures for strangers. Things like, dropping drawings of eskimos into the supermarket freezer (drawn on paper snow flakes, of course).

I thought it was a bit odd so I kept it to myself.

But what do you know, this habit of mine does have a name. And so Keri Smith (ahh, she's the best) introduced me to the secret, satisyfying world of guerilla art.

Leather-bound or Loose Scrawls

Sketchbooks allow for freedom - for the maker to daydream, vent, and explore in private. Some keep it simple. Some fill every page with scribbles, scraps of paper or tape.

Pens, Markers, and Gouache

Picture this: 445 illustrations in a broad spectrum of styles and techniques by 80 different drawing enthusiasts. I've owned this book for about three years and every time I'm feeling hungry for some inspiration, for something truly satisfying, my hands go straight for this book. The Picture Book has become my bible, of sorts, and deserves to be sitting on everyone's bookshelf.

Above is titled Yeti vs. Big Foot by Genevieve Gauckler.

Lucas Soi has a book filled with his black pen and ink drawings that takes an imaginative look into the male mind. That means it's not for children. It even comes with a 15" x 20" poster that he calls "I Built My Home for Making Adult Videos." So much insight for only $17? Go go, go buy it.

Bathroom Graffiti

Mark Ferem's Bathroom Graffiti book is a showcase of, you guessed it, the art and words that line our public restrooms. Mark spent several years collecting and compiling photographs of exceptional bathroom art. And when you flip past the pages of typical expressions like "call me for a good time", you'll discover a section devoted to doodles drawn during our most private and intimate moments.

Brain Trust

Brain Trust is a compilation of collaborative drawings between Peter Thompson and James Kirkpatrick. Peter is a master doodler and James is a graffiti artist and you can clearly see the distinction in their backgrounds come through creating a whole new unmistakable style. Really worth the $15. You can get it here.
