Magic Monsters

I discovered Delphine Durand (and her entourage of weird animals) when she was teaching a workshop at Ilustratour. I couldn't go and was left with the desire. Since then, I follow her work from the distance.

I love her magic and bizarre animated monsters that walk around her drawings and on her books and travel journals.



And thanks to her, I know about "Les Cahiers de L'Articho", a French illustration magazine that's got me blown away. She also has an amazing pinterest page where she uploads everything she likes.

From Belgium with Love

I recently found out that Kitty Crowther is from Belgium with a British father and Swedish mother. In fact, it was in Brussels where I first discovered one of her books, the one that shocked me most, "Petite home et dieu" (Little man and God).

What I like most from her is the lack of digital retouching, the spontaneous drawings, the feeling that she has done them very quickly (non-stop), and the way in which she uses colour, lights and blacks above all. I also like the fact that she uses colour pencils, it makes me think that someday when I get older, I could be like her.

Some issues or themes can be difficult for a kid to understand, but her subtlety makes it all very easy.

I hate that she doesn't have a website, because I couldn't find all the images that I wanted, but here are some.

Ricardo's Wild Art

Everything is said when you look at Ricardo Cavolo's work. With its strong colours, his pieces are powerful, fast and fresh. This guy's got the lot.

I saw that DA featured him in a post a few years ago, but I think that he deserves a refresh to see the evolution of his work.

Plus, I finally got to meet him at my last exhibition in Madrid and can honestly say that he is a lovely person.

Colorific World!





Some time ago, I found Lili Scratchy, a french illustrator and ceramic artisan who's world never stops surprising me. Going into her sketchbooks is like figuring out how her mind is like: A whole lot of little speaking monsters, colours, fruits, letters and weird animals.

Don't forget to take a look at her ceramic work, it's pretty impressive.

She has a blog that updates quite often and a Flickr where you can find all her work.

Warblevision



Friend of DA, Jangojim, dropped me an email with a heads up on his friend, Alex Warble and a recent video he posted of the process of going from doodle to digital (youtube link). I watched the video, and then spent some time on Alex's quirky and off-the-wall website, where links and colorful images are sporadically laid-out across the page. I quickly got lost in his world of imaginative and almost child-like highbrow meets lowbrow art. He's a music/mural/painting loving mad man and I'm happy to have discovered him. You should too, and if you reside in Memphis you're probably already quite familiar with his murals spread across town.

Coloring Book, Vol. 2

Some of my favorite moments working on Doodlers Anonymous is when we extend ourselves beyond the internet to produce something unique and tangible and born from the art of our community.

This week we published our second coloring book. I am thrilled and I'm pretty sure you will be too. I promise that you've never seen a coloring book quite like it. With every page turn you'll discover another style of drawing by a different artist. 60 of them to be exact.

It's now for sale at doodlersanonymous.com/coloringbook (get yourself or your best friend a copy). It will soon appear at a few boutique shops around the globe too. If you'd like to carry it in your shop or know somewhere that should, drop us a line.

Much love and respect to our stellar community of artists and aficionados. It's been a pleasure hosting all of you.

Saturated

You can't discuss Diela Maharanie's art without praising her prismatic, high-gloss, candy-like use of color. But, it's the colored noses of her women - a mere dab on the face - that somehow command my attention even amidst a wild assortment of patterns and animals. It's as if their skin has saturated the vibrant world they inhabit.

You now have the chance to color her work yourself - Diela is one of the 60 artists featured in our new coloring book!
