Good Dude Aldo Ramos

Aldo Ramos is a good friend I met early in my years moving to Austin. He and I met through the internet, both looking for people to make art with and hang out around town. We ended up being good friends going to music and art shows, doing some street art along the way. Here's an old collaboration (above) from those days.



Aldo's style is a strange mix of super-doodly work with some collage mixed in between. He keeps a super loose style and colorful palette, both of things that I enjoy in artwork. His doodles remind me of the sketching that happens in the margins of your notebook in school, where many an artist find their style in between learning biology and the other courses taught in school.

Drawing Dude Rich Cali

I met Rich Cali at a local watering hole where he serves up tasty drinks to patrons many days of the week here in Austin. When he's not working at Yellow Jacket here in town, he's doodling and drawing to the beat of his own drum.

I love Rich's work and feel that we share a certain affection for the unknown. Rich is a painter and photographer, so seeing his work transition to a refined work on a panel shows his doodles are the foundation for something much greater.



Rich is a founding member of Common House, an art space and studio where he and other members host artists and art shows every month. Go check out their site and drop by an opening if you are in town.

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.

Member Spotlight: Mason McFee

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.
