Coloring Book Interview Series, #13: Aphrodite Delaguiado



Aphrodite Delaguiado is a designer and illustrator who thinks with ink. What does that even mean? She understands mistakes aren't all that bad, and sometimes end up being the coolest part of the drawing. I poked Aphrodite with questions about her art and what I got in response was inspiring thoughts on doodling and some pretty worldly context for her illustration in our Coloring Book Volume 4.

A Drawing Desk Like No Other



As a parent of two little doodlers and a daily drawer myself, I can't help but fall in love with this Kickstarter project by The Cardboard Guys. They've taken everything great about fostering creativity in a kid and magically created a drawing desk and chair made of cardboard, that's fun to build, functional to use, and best of all designed to be doodled all over. The top of the desk even comes with cubbies to store all your art supplies and built to close away when not in use.

No joke, I want one for myself. They've only got 8 days left to meet their Kickstarter goal. Support them (before it's too late) and little ones will rejoice everywhere.

Tumblr of the Week: Miss Wearer's Rainbow POP Sketchbooks



When I was in elementary school, I had a sticker problem. I was addicted to buying rolls and packs of them and creating crazy colorful and hectic sticker collages. Seeing Miss Wearer's art brought these memories rushing back, because cotton candy rainbows and cutesy smiling creatures were exactly the kind of thing I couldn't get enough of. Her pop art is overloaded with retro palettes of bright colors that look so good you could eat them (it helps that a lot of her doodles seem to be dripping with ice cream fudge). It's no wonder her blog says "Draw what makes you smile." Miss Wearer's sharpie madness is gushing with playful sweetness and leaves you with a feel-good vibe that doesn't shake off.

If you're addicted to tumbling as well as doodling, follow Doodlers Anonymous on Tumblr for even more daily inspiration. You might even see yourself on there!

Little Boxes on the Hillside



I've been casually admiring some quaint little towns I wish I could live in. Any one of these houses nestled tightly amongst trees and other homes looks perfectly cozy for me. I associate drawings of buildings squashed together with the bustle of cities, so it's unusual for me to be looking at these homes practically smothered with no room between them and yet feel the opposite of city life. It's probably Samantha Dolan's intricate details on the leaves doing the trick. Her patterns are obsessive and consume the image until there is nowhere left unfilled. Still, there's something tranquil that comes from following the repetition of familiar shapes. See more Read More »

Portraits of Nature



There are some painters who specialize in portraits and others who gravitate towards landscapes. And then there's Lindsay Stripling, with paintings that are a hypnotic cocktail of both. Seems like she is both a people person and a nature person, and can't settle on one subject. Her series of women with landscapes for faces is haunting and strangely sentimental. It comes off as a cross between yearbook photos and vacation snapshots, two things that are strongly nostalgic.

From Doodle to Shoe!



As someone who draws in his sketchbook every single day, it's incredibly satisfying when an opportunity presents itself to bring those doodles to life. A little over a year ago I drew up some geometric shapes, turned them into a vector pattern, and submitted them to Bucketfeet (along with many other artists) for consideration into their Spring 2015 collection.



Bucketfeet is a brand that makes beautifully illustrated artist designed canvas shoes. They support artists from around the world, and I'm thrilled to announce that they've selected my "Asteroids" design for their catalog. It's now available for sale on their website and comes in two versions: laces or slip-on. They've also been kind enough to extend an awesome 20% discount (for my shoes or any other pair in their shop) to all Doodlers Anonymous fans, just use discount code OKAT20 at checkout.



You can become an artist for them as well. They are always looking for the next cool design, just follow this link to join the Bucketfeet Artist Network and get the process started.

Big Things Come in Small Drawings



Some ideas are just too big for humans to truly understand the scope of. Evan Lorenzen's tiny art books put them into a straightforward, bite-sized perspective, all within something the size of a thumb tack! It's light reading with heavy subject matter. The choice of ridiculously small (each project seems to get smaller) canvases to convey huge themes is ironic and entertaining. Perhaps this shows how small human accomplishments are in the grand scope of life. Or maybe complicated concepts are best understood when shown in their simplest form. Whatever the case is, I love the balance of playful and serious within these hand-sewn manuscripts.
