Cyber Doodle Monday

This week we published two new books for you to enjoy. Each one filled to the brim with art from our community of doodlers, scribblers, artists and illustrators.

We are shipping them out today for bargain prices. No kidding, it will be the best gift you give out this year. Happy holidays and cheers to all of the participating artists from Coloring Book, Volume 3 and our new mini coloring book: The Quintessential, Quirky, Compendium of Cats.

The Incredible Analog Drawing Machine





Oh my, I am in love with this project by Tobias Gutmann. It's one of the happiest and most creative things I've ever shared here on DA.

The Face-o-mat is a portable drawing booth that Tobias carried around with him 40,000 kilometers through Europe, Africa and Asia, drawing over 700 faces. The booth itself is incredibly designed and built, from the coin slot and style sliders to the clicking carousel of paper simulating a matrix printer. I want to teleport Tobias and his machine over here and have him draw portraits of everyone I know. So cool, especially his unique style of drawing. Enjoy and be sure to watch the video above.

Member Spotlight: Alvaro Diaz-Rubio



What luck. Here I am digging around our website for someone to feature when I stumble upon the work of Alvaro Diaz-Rubio and quickly discover he's an incredible artist and illustrator from South Florida that actually studied right down the street from our studio. It's a nice coincidence when that happens.

Alvaro's art takes me back to a time of vintage comics and being 13 years old trading gnarly Garbage Pail Kids cards outside the mall's convenience store. It's clear he draws all day long and even claims he'll most likely doodle on the inside of his coffin. His illustrations have appeared in publications like the Village Voice, LA Weekly and the New Times. Help me welcome Alvaro to Doodlers Anonymous and you can always check out more of his work at his website, Operation Underwear.

For something extra special, scroll down for a great time-lapse video of Alvaro drawing a quirky rendition of his lineage.

An Incredible Book of Drawn Vintage Cars by Lapin

We've featured French artist Lapin many times here on DA. Every time I look at his work it inspires me to drop everything and sketch. You too will fall in love with the composition of his lines and the mass collection of sketchbooks he's filled from cover to cover (look for yourself).

So it's with great joy that I learned today that he plans on publishing a book (Oldies but Goldies) with his incredible collection of drawn vintage cars found on the streets. I'll say it again, these are not drawings he's making back in his studio with photo references. He literally stumbles across a car and can't imagine passing it without respecting its history, so he sits down right then and there and draws it.



In his own words: "I project the dim light of those years in my book through my drawings and try to tell you the beauty behind the wrinkles, the experiences behind the broken parts and memories behind their dust so that they will be immortal."

He's running a campaign to raise funds to print this fantastic book. Follow the link and support this project (by doing so you'll also secure yourself a copy).

Work Made Him Mental



I know absolutely nothing about Ben Thorley except for the following three things. One, he doodles a lot, like everyday all the time and the doodles are mostly of people's faces saying things, sometimes random, sometimes completely relevant. I love them all. Two, he photographs them in weird lighting with odd Hipstamatic photo frames. That part, I'm not a big fan of. Three, he comes from Manchester (UK).

Follow him on Twitter, it's where I discovered him.

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

Tumblr of the Week: Amy

We came across this week's tumblr while reading some fanmail we received from Aimee Kinsey, a 17 year old art student in England. What attracts me to Aimee's art is the grungy, collage-y elements, reminiscent of found art. My favorite part about her style is that she isn't restricted by having to stay within the paper she's using, sometimes cutting holes in it to show odds and ends lying underneath. It's fun to see artists unafraid to add dimensions to their paper and create layers with their sketches! Follow her along at aimeedanielle.tumblr.com and encourage her to keep doing what she's doing.
