Tumblr of the Week: Renée Louise Anderson

If you haven't noticed by now, we loooove looking at pics of sketchbooks. Scans are nice for appreciating the smaller details better, but there's something about the spontaneity of taking a photo the moment you finish drawing. Renée Louise Anderson takes some of the most visually appealing pictures of her doodles. It's nothing extravagant, no insane filters… Just a soothing simplicity in composition that makes you want to stare at the page (or leaf) a little longer. Just look at them so you can see what I mean, and don't forget to follow Renée's blog.

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

Member Spotlight: Lauren Salgado





This is pretty cool. I recently learned that a doodle addict I follow on Instagram has been a member of the Doodlers Anonymous community since she was 14 years-old. She's now 19. Wow, I often forget I've been running this website that long. She writes in to tell me she's been obsessed with designing and drawing since, and that becomes quite clear when you look at her sketchbook that's filled with pages of lines, patterns and shapes.

What I like best is that each doodle looks like it could easily translate into a textile print, for use in home or apparel design.

Lauren, thanks for being a fan for so long and keep building on your talent. You can follow her over on Tumblr or Instagram.

Coloring Book Interview Series, #6: Polly Lindsay



The thing about finding artists from our coloring books is that you never know what to expect from seeing the one illustration they submitted to us. What I found when I looked up Polly Lindsay was quite a surprise. Her art is pretty out of the ordinary from what we normally post here, but I got a little crush on her unexpected style of cutting and layering paper.

Rorschach Test for Doodlers

Rorschach Test for Doodlers

The See . Saw series by L Filipe dos Santos consists of before and after pictures of his sketchbook. The "before" pics look a lot like ink blots, but they are actually gouache stains that the artist draws over. It's intriguing that he includes a photo of the stains before he drew over them, because it lets me first imagine what I would see in them myself. That makes it all the more interesting to compare how Santos' creative interpretation of the stains is so very different from my own. What do you see?

Sketchbook Pages to Get Lost In





I know nothing formal about Tanxuan, except that he's from Shenzhen, China and that he's got an incredible talent for drawing, with some of the most beautiful sketchbook pages I've ever laid my eyes on.

His Instagram is a constant feed of jaw dropping inspiration with drawings ranging from seductive women to odd foods to incredible overlapping cityscapes and the people within them.

Coloring Book Interview Series #5:
Ellen Leber



One of my favorite things about our coloring books is looking up the artist of a page I really like, because I usually end up falling straight down their rabbit hole. For example, Ellen Leber's atmospheric illustrations contain a depth that sucks me right into her world, especially since they are sometimes actually three dimensional.

Tell me more, Ellen...
