Layers of Doodles

The sketchbook of Stuart Adams is a wild ride. He draws in layers, which makes each page take a while to soak in while my eyes constantly find new visual details hidden underneath the doodled characters. Some of his backgrounds are unexpected textures, photographs, or a chaotic melange of colors which gives a certain depth to otherwise silly-looking doodles. My favorite thing Adams does is use white space to draw characters within the background, and then doodle more characters over those in black. The end product is crowded, messy, and full of spontaneous spirit. I see where Adams was coming from when he said, “The best way to describe my artwork is that it is like taking a mystery tour bus where Disney Land fuses into a Heironymous Bosch painting.”

Funny Doodles That Never Fall Flat

Simple black and white doodles with a twist... or should I say a fold? HuskMitNavn is an artist from Copenhagen who draws in three dimensions. His black and white characters have a comical and nostalgic style, reminiscent of those old-timey cartoons we all used to watch. What takes them to next the level is the way the artist folds, rolls, and tears the paper in many different directions to create a scene. The simplicity of these doodles infuses them with a playful energy that takes me back to the days in my childhood when I could amuse myself by making toys from nothing but paper and a pencil—dolls, planes, telescopes, whatever I happened to accidentally sculpt a sheet into! It’s a good source of inspiration for doodlers who want to start thinking outside of the box.

Coloring Book Interview Series, #14: Chucho Nieto

Coloring books are a personal, therapeutic experience for me. Sometimes I can spend an hour (or even longer) filling in just a single page, which gives me a lot of time to think about the illustration I'm spending my focus on. Unlike the average coloring book, the Doodlers Anonymous coloring books include a list of all the artists involved and where to find them. That's how I ended up asking Chucho Nieto a bunch of the odd little questions that spark while I'm coloring away!

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.

Doodle My Ride


Quick, to the Doodlemobile! It all started when Allison improvised a creative way to cover up some scratches on her boyfriend's car, which he didn’t mind because he was making plans to repaint it anyway. She got a little carried away and kept doodling beyond the scratches, until she had sharpied the entire bumper in one night. Needless to say, the repainting plans got trashed and the car became Allison's new canvas. About 100 hours of frenzied doodling later, they now have the most eye-catching car I’ve seen in a long time.

Bonus! Click after the fold to see a time-lapse video of Allison at work, including funny peeks at what she does during her breaks from doodling.

Doodlers, Assemble!

It's normal for those who spend a lot of time on trains to develop the habit of people-watching, but October Jones takes it to the next level. Observing what the commuters around him are wearing and doing, he doodles a face onto a post-it to stick over the person's head and suddenly the strangers around him are familiar faces that he has known his entire life. It's jarring to see nostalgic characters like Kermit on his iPad or Batman slumping in his seat, and I can't get enough of it. Pretty funny to think that extraordinary characters put into such an ordinary situation would act just like any of us do.
