Doodling with a purpose: How to create art that speaks

Those lines you just left on paper – are those really just doodles?

Could it be more than just meandering lines that you've mindlessly put together? Mindless not in the way it was created, but mindless in the way how easily our minds shifts from one thought to the next, perplexing, changing, evolving and never the same. Mindless in weight, in troubles and in spirit? A line that solidifies our constant state of flux, by being there – a constant. A reminder. A mark left in time that captures the essence of what makes drawing such a personal affair.

What happens beyond the meandering? At what point does a drawing become art? Or is every doodle a work of art in itself? I'd like to think it’s more the latter, but at the same time, sometimes not all doodles are made equal – sometimes it's nothing more than it is. And yet some are more than they truly show. An image, a still, captured in time. A thought. A fleeting emotion. Raw. Keep reading...

Hop, Hop. Fashion, Baby.

Have you heard of Fifi Lapin? She's an international it-girl, style guru, and fashion icon who posts photos of her outfits online. She has collaborated with well-known designers who love her look and been featured in fashion magazines - even praised by Vogue as "an unlikely - but powerful - fashion force." What sets her apart from the rest of the fashionista world? Well, she’s an illustrated bunny.

Fifi Lapin's blog exists to answer the question, "What shall I wear today?" Most days she posts drawings of herself wearing opulently stylish outfits that she takes straight off the latest runways and red carpets. Fifi's posts sometimes include cute little updates on the globetrotting fashion adventures of a fabulously spoiled hare-ess. It’s a ridiculous and clever spin on fashion blogging! From now on, you’ll never want to read a blog that isn’t written by a rabbit again. (For the record, I am a Holland Lop and I am typing this with my fluffy paws.)

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.

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.

Interstellar Drawings

I'm very much enjoying the drawings of Jason Hernandez, especially the ones themed around space travel. I love the narrative, it's as if I'm traveling between stars. The drawings generally consist of black ink on yellow paper with accents of gold paint, and the attention to detail in each image is just right. Buckle up and enjoy the cosmos.

Her Life with a Little Bit of Fiction

Paintings, drawings, words. All of it. I'm in love with Herikita's art. It speaks truths in soft colors and is quite often made-up of angled homes and rooftops, pets and insects, women and men, all of whom are sharing their awkward feelings and I just want more and more of it.

Her bio alone was enough to make me smile. Here's a small bit of my favorite part, "I work at midnight like Cinderella’s mice, almost always, when everyone is sleeping and something pops up in my mind.."

It's such a great visual.
