Tumblr of the Week: A Droid a Day



Rob Turpin's A Droid a Day project is all about proving that you just can't get tired of robots. Since August 2013, he has been posting droid doodles every. single. day. Most robots are captioned with a name or title that is descriptive of their function, which adds a touch of personality.

I stalked his blog a little bit and found that he started doodling with pen and pencil more often to stop himself from putting more thought into drawing something that looks nice rather than capturing a great idea. "Throwing in a really broad shape with the markers makes you forget about trying to create something beautiful, itís about creating a cool shape, or an interesting form." Wise advice for doodlers!

Be sure to follow his blog for tons of valuable insight. I especially like it when he shares his illustration process from initial sketch to final color.

Step Up Your Selfie Game with Doodles

Tons of girls have an Instagram account full of selfies, and Helene Mehldahl is no exception... but there's a twist. You might be living under a rock if you haven't seen Helene (aka mirrorsme) on Instagram after she blew up recently, but there's no way I can't write a post about these unique doodles.



She says it all started with her habit of writing cute messages to her roommates with lipstick on their mirrors, and before long her imagination got carried away with it. These doodles are silly and spontaneous, full of fun and personality. Thatís the DA spirit, isn't it?

Doodles + Transparency Sheets = MAGIC



Aug(De)Mented Reality is a fresh video that's recently been getting passed along the internet, and for hella good reasons. Hombre_McSteez combines traditional cell animation with still photography from his iPhone into one of the most captivating videos I've seen lately. It's always super cool to see 2D drawings roaming the 3D world, but seeing the real objects and landscapes responding to being played around with is what really makes this video come alive. We couldn't resist sharing something this perfectly executed.

Follow @Hombre_McSteez on Instagram to see more animations weekly!

Drawings Right in the Middle of Something



What I like about Sarina Nihei's doodles is the I feeling that all these people are frozen in the middle of some action. I have no idea what's going on, but it looks interesting and each drawing leaves me kinda craving to see what happened before or what will happen next. This all makes a lot of sense when you find out that Nihei is also an animator, an explanation for why her doodles look like a single frame plucked from a storyboard. Maybe the lack of context is what makes these odd little moments a lot more fun.

Tumblr of the Week: Bela Unclecat

Our first time crossing paths with Bela Unclecat was when she sent us back one of our Doodle Addict postcards from Japan with one of the most charming and lively doodles we have received. Just look at it! How many animals can you count in the left corner alone? There is a chicken thing standing on a cat that is holding a stack of tea cups that the chicken thing is drinking out of and there is a stream of tea coming into the teacup from a teapot, suddenly we've travelled all the way to the opposite side of the picture, what a magical journey that was and we're nowhere near done seeing all the sights there are to see.

There's plenty more where that came from on Bela Unclecat's tumblr. I just can't get enough of her nostalgically playful universe.

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!

A Beautiful Tribute: Google Illustrates Some of Steinbeck's Monumental Works





Perhaps no novel opens more powerfully than John Steinbeck's Cannery Row: "Cannery Row in Monterey in California is a poem, a stink, a grating noise, a quality of light, a tone, a habit, a nostalgia, a dream."

Steinbeck delicately drags the reader into the visceral, tactile, and palpable worlds of his Depression era characters. We smell and taste and spit out life with them.

Today Google doodled some of Steinbeck's monumental works in celebration of his birthday. The illustrated slides, featuring quotes from the depicted novels, are a bold and beautiful tribute to a cherished American author. Hats off Google- gorgeously executed.
