It's National WHAT Day?





Did you know that April 14th was National High As You Can Reach Day? I can't believe I forgot, but hopefully I accidentally celebrated by reaching up at some point. I'll never miss an obscure holiday again now that I follow National What Day, a recently formed blog with a catchy idea. Last month, Thoka Maer moved from Berlin to New York and dove straight into appreciating American culture by doing something special for all of the national appreciation days. She posts almost-daily animated pencil drawings relevant to which National _____ Day it is. Whether it's pennies, pencils, or specific foods—I'm excited to see Maer's daily reminders to celebrate the little things!

Kate Gavino's Drawings of Readings



Quotes are a powerful force. Reading the right ones can change your entire perspective on life, love, and other big deals. Weird to think that a few words can have that effect! Kate Gavino is a New Yorker who goes to book readings regularly, and isn’t satisfied with just tweeting a good quote when she hears it. In her prolific Last Night’s Reading series, she sketches portraits of the authors while she is at their reading, alongside a favorite quote from the night. It’s the perfect marriage of her passions for art literature! So many of these are inspiring and thought-provoking… I think I’ve just been convinced to start checking out book readings around me.

Pop Up Art

This sketchbook is so action-packed that some of the pages are literally popping out at me! Dominic Damien uses inventive combinations of ink, pencil, watercolor and acrylic meshed with comic book clippings. These elements of collage are so deftly integrated into Damien’s bold, striking art style that at first I did not realize they weren’t drawn in. Photos of his expansive moleskine art also include helpful closeups that bring a microscope up to the best details and textures that you miss while looking at the big picture. See more »

April Spooks



I never wait until October to enjoy a good dose of spooky. This Italian artist's sketchbook is a small town of goofy monsters, all drawn in sepia pen. The bizarre creatures Paride Bertolin dreams up are scary in design, but the darkness became lighthearted after I noticed their awkward and playful expressions. I find it so endearing to see them looking gawky and stiff, like nervous new acquaintances or someone who hates having their picture taken. If the quirky and the macabre are right up your alley, go look at Bertolin’s sketchbook right now!

Leave a Little Mystery

I found a peculiar art blog with almost no details on the doodler responsible for it. O4YA draws characters that seem like personified emotions. Sometimes childlike and other times creepy (or occasionally both), almost every illustration seems like a prompt for a story. The details in the drawings are specific enough to spark curiosity, but not enough to answer my questions. See more »

Tumblr of the Week: Tonto Garabato



The sketches of Valeria Alvarez are often limited to black and white, sometimes an extra well-chosen color. Her drawings are mystic and whimsical, like postcards sent from strange places she visits in her mind.

What looks simple at first glance is actually made up of countless precise patterns within the shadows. A huge part of the magic lies in all the sketchy little details within the intricate shading and textures of her drawings. See more »

Cinematic Sketch Spreads



I came out of Artur Dabrowski's blog feeling like I just watched an epic fantasy, but I was actually looking through his sketchbook. Dabrowski's concepts are too large for one page, so in idle moments during subway rides, or in waiting rooms, he doodles up entire journals with dark and mysterious spreads. Between the cinematic composition and the mythic settings, I can practically hear dramatic score pieces swelling in the background. See more »
