Doodles Inspired by Lyrics



Do you ever get so into a song that you begin to visualize it? These sketchbooks are an intense mix of music, writing, and drawing all coming together to make something awesome. The artist is CaliDoso, a self-described quote freak whose imagination catches fire when the right words at the right time click into place.

Bold Shapes That Demand Your Attention



There's so much to like about the black and white spreads in Tyler Robbins's sketchbook. It's like having monochromatic dreams of symbols and patterns. His stark palette, gradients, archetypes, and organic shapes are intended to play in our collective unconscious. "Drawing, painting, or creating anything with impatient urgency," Tyler writes, "allows ideas to evolve before they're corrupted by reason."

Beyond the psychology, his sketchbook art is just plain stunning. I'm mesmerized by how he's created meaning and intricacy and depth with extreme limitation of color, shape, and space. You want to check this out.

Designy Hand-drawn Coffee Cups



I found something great this morning while browsing Instagram's main feed: An artist who uses blank white coffee cups as his canvas. He cleverly uses the cups to draw labels for fake coffee branches, like a futuresque Cafe Nebula that I can imagine the Jetsons visiting or the Godot Cafe, where you can have a coffee while you wait. Much of Illarion Gordon’s #fakecoffeebranding has gloomy undertones, a darkly funny subversion of overly-optimistic branding. Follow @luftaffe on Instagram and have fun imagining what your drink from his imaginary coffee shops would taste like.

Also, we've highlighted plenty of coffee-related art on Doodlers Anonymous in the past. Check them out to keep your caffeine buzz going.

Tumblr of the Week: Renée Louise Anderson

If you haven't noticed by now, we loooove looking at pics of sketchbooks. Scans are nice for appreciating the smaller details better, but there's something about the spontaneity of taking a photo the moment you finish drawing. Renée Louise Anderson takes some of the most visually appealing pictures of her doodles. It's nothing extravagant, no insane filters… Just a soothing simplicity in composition that makes you want to stare at the page (or leaf) a little longer. Just look at them so you can see what I mean, and don't forget to follow Renée's blog.

Drawn Faces Under Construction

Looking at the lines of a tree can tell you a lot about its life, and the same could go for people. David Cristobal is a Spanish artist whose highly detailed wood people are worth checking out. These portraits are drawn realistically, yet the texture of the wood that they are built from makes it become a surreal experience. I almost want to stick my face right up close to their cracks and peak into what's on their inside. Is that creepy?

Found via our Facebook page. Thanks friends and followers for sharing your work!

Tumblr of the Week: DERIK

How excited would you be if you were out for a walk and came across these guys eying you through a window? My favorite thing about these vibrant characters is how they bring life and humor to the otherwise colorless places they are found in. It's fun to see artists getting creative with the environment beyond their pens and paper. I'm lucky that DERIK happens to follow the DA tumblr so that I could have the chance to stumble onto his blog. Street artists like him make the world a more magical place full of colorful surprises around unexpected corners!

Tumblr of the Week: Gourmet Scum

I really enjoy it when artists add captions or speech bubbles to their drawings of people. Maybe it stems from my love of comics or maybe the added commentary makes the experience that much better. The Tumblr of the Week today belongs to an 18 year old artist from Chicago named Meredith, who seems to be pretty heavily influenced by 80's aesthetics. Something about these marker doodles does give me flashbacks to certain old cartoons I used to watch on television. Find more of these goodies on Meredith's blog!
