There's Always A Reason To Be Pretty



Long-time friends, Nophar Haimovitz (fashion/jewelry designer) and Hodaya Louis (fashion illustrator) have collaborated for the image launch of Reason To Be Pretty's latest collection of jewelry, and it's a match made in heaven.

Their styles blend perfectly, take a closer look and you'll notice how subtle and elegant Hodaya's illustrated women wear the photographed jewelry of Nophar's designs. It's so great to see two different forms of art come together like this.

Celebrate their work by visiting reasontobepretty.com where you can shop the full collection and be sure to check out more of Hodaya's work over at hodayalouis.com.

Tumblr of the Week:
Ahmet Özcan Illustrations



I came across the drawings of Ahmet Özcan after he mailed in one of our Doodle Addict postcards and then again when he submitted an illustration for our latest coloring book. My favorite posts are the photos of his awesome white-on-black doodles over his sketchbook. The characters in his drawings are creature feature material, often looking as if they are emerging out of the whiteness to come after you. There's something so interesting about the way he leaves out the body of the monster, leaving much of it up to your imagination to color in. Equal parts playful and creepy, fans of monsters will love his doodles! See more of his images »

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.
