Member Spotlight: Juan Pez





I'm really digging the workspace pics form Juan Pez's desk. His table-top is messy and covered with ink, brushes, scraps, markers, tape, rulers…barely enough room for the drawing itself. And I love that his work is just the same, a mishmash of sloppy characters and comic-like illustrations.

Giveaway: One-year of Zines by Josh LaFayette





Well, well, we haven't done one of these in a long while, a giveaway that is. The man, the myth, the legend, Mr. Josh LaFayette is at it again. Making drawings, lots of drawings, about anything and everything and he's binding them into zines with his own hands and shipping them to you every month, for all of 2014.

We're lucky enough to have an entire year's subscription to giveaway and it's happening right now. Don't delay, play along. Answer the following question (by Friday at 11am Eastern) in the comments of this post and we'll pick our favorite (one answer per person please). You never know, Josh might even be kind enough to draw the winning answer.

Question: If your life was a zine, what would be the title?

For those of you with 50 bucks to spare and a desire to support one of the most genuine guys, illustrators and talented folks out there, go ahead and buy your own subscription here (discount code: doodlin) or at the very least, follow Josh's work on the web or on twitter. And if you're inclined to watch him make a crazy fool of himself, his Vine account is tons of fun.

*These images are from his 2013 zine collection.

Tumblr of the Week: Hello Stranger



A good friend is someone who doesn't judge you, who always listens to you without making it about themselves, who you can simply sit in comfortable silence with… Perhaps these girls are onto something.

The tumblr we stumbled upon this week belongs to Korean artist Dan-ah Kim. Out of her expansive portfolio, one recurring subject that stood out to us were ladies in their undies with house plants. Because we only see the girls from behind, I get the slightly voyeuristic feeling that I have accidentally walked in on a private moment.

Intricate Hand-Drawn Flowers Direct from Olka's Sketchbooks

I just stumbled upon the nature doodles of Ukraine designer and illustrator Olka and had to share them with you. I'm not normally into this style, but the infinite details caught my attention and they definitely deserve yours. See them in color »

Primal Drawings and Falling Limbs



Piotr’s work is pretty and primal. The artist's rural, folk-art sensibility is expressed in the masks and dense tribal and geometric patterns. Reminiscent of wood block prints or cave paintings, his work tells a rugged tale about nature and human nature. Visit his website for more.

POV: The Sketchbook as a Center Point



Through his beautifully-executed point of view sketches, Thomas Cian takes us on the road with him. We step into his skin, with the sketchbook resting on our lap and pencil in hand, and visit a classroom, a café, or a car with intimacy and familiarity. We have entered his personal space and it is welcoming and warm. And somehow the sketchbook – as center point – seems to create the scene instead of merely recording it.

Tumblr of the Week: Gwion Christmas



Gwion Christmas’s drawings are replete with images of feverish expression. Communication, or rather frustrated communication, is everywhere. Language seems confused or interrupted as if there is something important to convey, that’s unheard. There are lines from mouths that circle and intersect but never make it from speaker to audience, there is a conversation in shapes, and there are detached speech bubbles littered throughout. As a lover of expression and a lover of words, I love Gwion. You will too.
