Last.fm Doodles

We all have our obsessions. Mine is checking off all the TV episodes I've finished watching on my SeriesGuideX app. Andrea M (aka Something Different) takes things a bit further.

For what looks like months, Andrea has been doodling her weekly listening stats on Last.fm in her sketchbook. What you get are fun visual peek into her life that only one's musical selections can provide.

The Daily Battles of Mu Pan

Mu Pan is a New York based artist who creates some of the most visually rich work I've ever seen. I was lucky to meet him earlier this year and got a chance to talk about his process, while also getting a glimpse into two of his sketchbooks. Each page of these books can stand alone as a work of art. As a whole, they represent a daily exploration of his life, thoughts, and experiences melded with historical events, cultural icons, symbolism and epic conflict. Mu's art is his life's work, and he's fully committed to pushing it to its farthest limits. There's a lot to see in his paintings and drawings, so make sure you visit his website and blog to fully enjoy the scope and detail of it all.

Pimp My Post-It



Back up if you thought post-its were just for mundane to-do lists and whatnot. Gangster Doodles has taken office supplies and turned them into some seriously NSFW material. You think you're fancy with your "paper" and "art supplies," meanwhile in just 3 weeks the superfly Aaron Dickenson of G. Doodles has cranked out 174 mesmerizingly sick portraits of thugs and divas doing their thing with just sharpies and markers on a 3X3 post-it note.

Here are some snippets of what you wish your life was like:

Freaky Deaky

Taking a peek into Jesse Balmer's sketchbook is like stumbling upon an alternate dimension. His drawings feature bizarre environments and even more bizarre creatures inhabiting them. Sometimes you'll see exciting action sequences frozen mid-scene, or beast-like characters with just enough peculiar details on them to make you imagine what their story could be.

Agony

Raffaele's Bafefit's biography describes the creatures in his portraits as "characters caught in between the thin line between life and death." This ceaseless purgatory, where even the smoothest of curves feel as sharp as Fugubiki knives, binds the personalities of each piece in a state of agony. And although you might not hear their caterwaul, you can certainly feel their desperation.

Plunge Into the Shadows

Jenny Wildfang Drawings

I won't pretend for a minute to understand the German text in Jenny Wildfang's dreary sketchbook, but there is something unsettling in her work that breeds discomfort. I'm not quite sure what it is — only that it is there and it is dark. The use of heavy shadows heightens the narrative and the sickly sense that something is not okay. Who are these people drenched in shadows? Do we want to know the secrets they keep?

All I can say is that Jenny is one of my favorite new finds over at our Google+ community, so if you haven't joined, you should!

The Bravery

Born in Moscow, brought up in Milwaukee, and now based in Manhattan, Sonya Kozlova (at the early age of twenty) is known for her photography. Her photos are experimental and visceral, and it's obvious she has a keen eye for lighting and cropping her subjects just right.

She's recently mustered up the courage to share a few of her sketchbook drawings and they've captured my attention as much as her camera pictures have. Here are a few of my favorite pages.
