That's Gross, I Love It



Gore, girls, and robots everywhere--I think I'm in love. I tripped over the art of Lauren YS today when I read about her upcoming exhibition, "Behind You." I was instantly hooked in by the in-your-face girliness dripping with attitude. Her portfolio is gushing with colors that remind me of rainbow swirl ice cream, deceptively sweet at first glance until you start noticing all the nasty little details.

*Make sure to to watch her video after the fold, where she flips through 4 complete years of sketchbook drawings from her Moleskine.

When Women Laugh



Inspired by Roy Lichtenstein’s Shipboard Girl, Danor Shtruzman captures laughing women in watercolor. His work shares the same cliched femininity and comic book sensibility as the pop art icon, but his use of greyscale on aged book pages adds a texture and meaning all his own. His Laughing Girl series is an unabashed tribute to happiness in a sometimes lonely world. Smile and the world smiles with you.

The Quintessential, Quirky, Compendium of Cats / A Mini-Coloring Book Featuring 28 Global Artists





Purring softly in the corner, curled up and licking itself, is DA's first mini-coloring book, and we suddenly realized that we never made the acquaintance. So, dear community, we're proud to introduce you to "The Quintessential, Quirky, Compendium of Cats!"

As submissions rolled in for our second coloring book, we noticed an undeniable theme. Cats from here till Sunday - cats wearing clothes, admiring cubist paintings, looking French, sipping coffee. So we hoarded (*ahem, I mean compiled) them like a crazy cat lady, knowing one day we'd find them a proper home, a book all their own.

And so the mini-coloring book was born! The book -- featuring 28 global artists in a mashup of styles-- is truly the cat’s meow, because it's not only creative and cuddly, it's charitable.



In honor of OKAT's own shelter cat, Mylo, Doodlers Anonymous and The Quintessential, Quirky, Compendium of Cats! is proud to support The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® and its mission to save lives. (aspca.org)

Like anything from our shop, this will ship with a DA doodle sticker, bookmark and postcard. So color it up, get crazy with a crayon, and help support our feline friends!

Tumblr of the Week: Lucha!

I'm glad I stumbled over Luciana Ojea’s blog lurking within our tumblr followers. She's an Argentinian illustrator whose sketchbook is filled with countless quirky characters coming alive on every page. Occasionally, they even wander off the paper and onto random objects. Maybe it's from all the screaming and smiling and arms waving in the air, but I love the sense of excitement I get from her crazy little people.

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

Illustration Around the World



I would love to walk a mile in Pablo ientile’s shoes-- which are probably quite worn by now considering he recently spent six months journeying through thirty cities in ten Asian countries. Pablo, who likes drawing as pablo bear when on the road, is traveling the world meeting and collaborating with artists on his brilliant comic book project. Each artist, uber-talented in their own right, will illustrate the parts of the comic that occur in their cities resulting in a first-person narrative with a crazy cool mashup of styles. Can’t wait to see the end result! Follow Pablo's journey online at illustrationaroundtheworld.com or mobile via his Instagram.

Member Spotlight: Juan Pez





I'm really digging the workspace pics form Juan Pez's desk. His table-top is messy and covered with ink, brushes, scraps, markers, tape, rulers…barely enough room for the drawing itself. And I love that his work is just the same, a mishmash of sloppy characters and comic-like illustrations.
