Coloring Book Interview Series, #8: Gizem Vural





Dreams, adventure, and coffee! What more could you want? These are my favorite things that I find constantly in Gizem Vural's playfully surreal illustrations. You have to read more about how she never outgrew playing with coloring books (like most of us here) and it led her to being published in ours.

Coloring Book Interview Series, #7: Kristopher Kotcher (aka Frenemy)



Kristopher Kotcher, aka Frenemy, is an illustrator from Texas with a taste for adventure. The life of his pieces are characters which he refers to as "frenemies," those madly grinning creatures he draws packed into chaotic scenes. Read on to find out about his roots in street art and his gang of frenemies.

Open Call / Coloring Book Vol. 4

Once a year we open up the flood gates and collect submissions for our annual coloring book.

For those of you that are new to Doodlers Anonymous, this is one of our more popular times of the year, as our coloring books are unlike anything you've seen before. They feature 60 artists from around the world - some fresh novices, others seasoned veterans, all of whom share a love for the hand-drawn.

We want everyone to participate, so grab your pens and sharpies and get to it. If you're interested in participating, we've set an aggressive deadline that is fast approaching (October 7th, 2014), go here for the complete details »



To celebrate the open call, we are discounting a combo-pack of our volume one and two coloring books by 15% (shop here).

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.

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...

Colors and Crowded Faces

The sketchbooks that immediately catch my attention are the ones that are brimming with color. There is something scintillating about seeing so many colors confined to such a small space. It feels like bottled rampage even if the subjects in the pages are meek.





Each of the pages of Valerie Choi's recent sketchbook is crammed with characters piled atop of each other as burst of color overtakes them. It makes me feel as if the pages will break apart and the colors and caricatures will spill over onto her desk like water does when it can no longer be contained.

Valarie has documented her sketchbook in progress in this short video, which you won't want to miss.

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.
