People Paper Shapes



I recently participated in a collage contest, and at times felt like I was all thumbs while trying to cut out tiny slivers of paper at just the right size. In her piece Citypass Jerusalem, Iris Kost has mastered the technique of embracing the non-perfection that comes with the process of cut-out paper shapes, all the while making it look whimsical, simple, and adorable. Her characters all have such expression and uniqueness, and I love the bright color palette. Iris makes the experience of riding the train into a lovely, pleasant one, one where you just might meet someone as interesting and creative as Iris.

Iris Kost does more than paper art – check out her website and Flickr!

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.

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.

She Will Paint on ANYTHING

The people of Portugal who have the chance to see this street artist's work while they go about their daily business are so lucky. Her name is Vanessa Teodoro, also known as Supervan, and she will paint on anything. Cars, bodies, furniture, gigantic sunglasses–Seriously anything.


My personal favorite is her project titled "Mi Querida Casa," in which she created a real life drawn house environment where the furniture looks like doodles. Once she gets going, Teodoro wastes no space on whichever unusual surface she chooses to draw on. Every inch of her work has something crammed into it, making it hard for me to decide where to look first when a ton of striking images are demanding my attention at once. There's so much movement in her murals that I keep finding some witty little details tucked away in the crowd of her art that I skipped over at first glance. It's the kind of art you can just sit back and stare at while you sip your drink.

Blockheads - Faces Doodled on Post-It Notes

Drawing a face on a post-it is pretty common when you have a pad handy and get the impulse to doodle, but Erik RVA takes it to the next level. His massive series of faces on post-its is impressive because he doesn't seem to run out of ways to make them have unique personalities that come across strongly.

His post-it blog calls itself "My life on sticky notes," which is relevant because often the background of the post-its adds some meaning to the doodle. Whether he is doodling a friend, doodling at the pool, or at the barbecue, or over his taxes - seeing what inspired him to pick up the pen and markers right in the picture behind the face is pretty neat.

Tumblr of the Week: Juliana Vomero

A wild deer-girl appears! She crossed my path today while I was browsing our followers on DA's tumblr and landed on the blog of Juliana Vomero. I instantly loved the way Juliana's drawings are unconstrained - you see them in sketchbooks on desks, on kitchen cutting boards, on the walls inside, on the walls outside! Something mysterious about it are the repeated images of the same character. There is little information given about Juliana or her art, which leaves me wondering what this pin-up deer-girl means to her.
