Beyond the Classroom Walls





Zak Peric, an instructor at Tower Hamlets College in London, put together an outstanding doodle project with his students. Over the course of three days, 11 students doodled on the wall of their college.

Using only black ink, students drew shapes, characters, objects, and lines all around the encouraging and positive words: "The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do!"

Kudos to Zak for making this happen! Long live teachers and instructors that encourage the arts beyond just the walls of their classroom. Watch it all come to life in the time-lapse video below.

Holy crap, I just spent too much time on Mason's flickr site. I got lost in the randomness of his doodles and how they seem to land on any damn thing he comes across. His drawings are loose and unpretentious, free to roam, with layers of goofiness but end in an almost perfect layout and composition.

Mason, let's go have a beer, and then draw me something to hang on my wall.

Doodle Mashup





I want to introduce you to one of my favorite illustration projects of late. It comes to us from Israeli artist, Geffen Refaeli. The concept is incredibly simple, and the result, flawless.

What started as a personal experiment to practice drawing and doodling has turned into a daily art project with over 20,000 followers (in under a year). Every day, Geffen uploads an illustration that was inspired by a mashup of her friends photographs. She takes bits and pieces from their pictures and creates one-color, surreal drawings. She then posts the drawings on Instagram (@dailydoodlegram) with links to the photo feeds that prompted it all to begin with.

I'm a fan, and I'd gamble to say so will you be. Prints are available at her recently launched shop.

Over 34,000 Doodles Live On Our
DA Flickr Group!





I'm absolutely awe-struck by the sheer size of the Doodlers Anonymous group that lives on Flickr. Launched in November 2008, the group now houses over 34,000 drawings, doodles, sketches, scribbles, paintings and so much more.

It's a treasure of inspiration.

We do our best to consistently moderate the group and dig around for awesome finds. Images above by Jeannine Ortiz, Mary Ruth Patchin, Maura Cluthe and below are some more favorites. If you're a friend of DA, you'd be crazy not to join the group You simply never know when you might just find your art featured here on the blog.

Member Spotlight: Anke Braatz



I love that Anke describes her sketchbooks as "everyday training." It's exactly on-point, as she uses them to practice her craft and quickly capture a moment of everyday life, page after page.

Beyond her sketchbook pages, what I like most about her work are the drawings on different papers that layer to form a perfect design and final illustration.

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.
