The Art of Homeless Cop



I came across Homeless Cop through a friend on Facebook. He introduced us and I was a fan right out the gate. At first glance I thought his works were all vector illustrations but as it turns out they are actually oil paintings! The lines are so crisp and clean and the colors so amazing and bold. I was insanely impressed with his work. I caught up with him recently and asked him a few questions. I hope you all enjoy! Read the full interview

Sktchy Interview: Patrick Parks

About a month ago I went to a really cool draw event over in the Wynwood distract of Miami. Tons of people, pens, and paper with everyone out sketching one another. There were some power players there like Brian Butler and Jose Mertz, but also lots of novices. The vibe was great (with no ego) and just a love for drawing from everyone. The entire thing was put together by the developers of the Sktchy app. I was impressed an event like this was happening right in my backyard.



Over the course of the next few weeks I've gotten to play with the Sktchy app and also got to know the man behind it, Jordan Melnick. We shared some beers and discussed the incredible art community we both get to be a part of. Sktchy really is a great tool, folks upload a photo of themselves and the community draws them. You can sketch, paint, doodle it however you'd like and then upload and share your rendition. I've been discovering some really great artists on there and asked Jordan if he'd like to host interviews with some of my favorites.

Here's an exclusive Q&A between Jordan and one of those artists, Patrick Parks. Patrick creates portraits that reveal a flair for fashion, a confidence in color and an ability to express strong human emotion with just a few lines.

Featured Artist #21: Greg Kletsel

Greg Kletsel is a drawing machine. In all seriousness, I believe he must be built of metal and moving parts with at least one robotic arm and an infinite supply of ink. That's the only thing that could explain the amount of work he outputs.

I met Greg a thousand years ago when he interviewed at the studio I worked at. The position didn't play out, but I liked his drawing skills and asked if he'd draw up an idea I had for a t-shirt. That's how Tools of the Trade was born (it's still one of my favorite tees).

Today, Greg is a full-time illustrator and designer based in Brooklyn, New York who's rocking it on the illustration scene. Cranking out zines, comics, posters, and all while filling up sketchbook pages by the minute. I have tons of respect for Greg and so it made perfect sense to feature his work in an exclusive drawn interview. He of course did not take the task lightly and simply blew our minds away with his drawn responses to each question. Check out the detail, line work and thought behind each drawing. Wow!

Rad Dudes from LAND



Ryan Rhodes and Caleb Owen Everitt work as a company called LAND. I can't really say enough about these guys, they're good friends and rad dudes all around. Plus they make some of the coolest work I've seen in ages. Their sketches are very classic in nature and reminiscent of a simpler time.





These dudes do some great branding work, but my love for them lies in their hand drawn artwork and graphics. See more

Welcome to My House



One night about a year ago I met with Conrad (who was already sharing a studio with Guim) and Chamo for a Gin and Tonic session. All of us worked from home at that moment and we all agreed that it was becoming very boring. I don't know if it was the Gin or the night itself, but after a few rounds it occurred to us to set up a studio.

Now, we are six people (including graphic designer Jordi and record label "The Indian Runners" who joined shortly after).

That's how Tocafusta was born. We all work as independent freelancers but always finding ways to collaborate with each other and discover common objectives. We look for new projects, collaborations with interesting people, and above all try to help each other as much as we can.

It's great to come here to work everyday. It really has become my second little family.

This is My Kind of Buried Treasure

It's been a while since I've seen the movies, but as far as I remember, when Indiana Jones finds buried treasure, he barely lets out a little squeal under his breath. He's also probably too cool to start hiccupping because he's JUST. SO. DELIGHTED with what he's found today!

Me though? When I find buried treasure, I'm hardly cool about it. So when illustrator John Hersey emailed me these exclusive sketchbook doodlings, you better believe I was making all sorts of awkward noises under my breath! (Apologies to my fellow cafe-patrons who were trying to quietly sip their lattes at the time).



So far these doodlings have only been seen by John, his kids... and now we're JUST. SO. DELIGHTED to dust them off and share them with you guys! Enjoy.

2012 Hand-Drawn Calendar

This is our most ambitious project to date -- almost a year in the making. It's the culmination of over 130 submissions, over 2,300 votes, and an infinite amount of creativity. We launch our 2012 DA Calendar with overwhelming pride, not only in the beauty and originality of the artwork, but in the fantastic support of our community. We truly could not have accomplished this feat without you, our supporters and friends.

If you love what we are doing at Doodlers Anonymous, help us fight the good fight. Buying a calendar not only promotes independent artists and helps to support this website, but more importantly, saves you from those overcrowded malls this holiday season.
