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.

Brrrrring... Brrrrring...

For many of us, drawing while on the phone is exactly how we got into the habit of doodling. I know that for me, I can hardly last on a call for two minutes if I don't have a pen and paper around to scribble on.

The following is a series of drawings made by DZO Olivier from France, all made without much thinking, during a handful of different phone conversations. And be sure to visit his portfolio for a taste of what he can do when he's not distracted by chit-chat.

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.

The Daily Coffee



This morning (and every morning) I need my coffee to get going. Sometimes for the caffeine, sometimes for the ritual.

It seems Brandon Ortwein would agree. Since October 2010, Brandon has taken to making a daily coffee cup post-it note drawing. As you'd expect from a caffeinated doodle, they are full of color and energetic marker streaks. I love these drawings as a collection. It's a reminder of how something simple, done overtime, could look impressive and complete.

Portland Travelogue

I always romanticized about creating my own travelogue, but whenever I travel, I never get around to it. Perhaps when I'm away from home my curiousness of unseen places overtakes that internal desire. I guess that's why I turn to the web to live out this dream through someone else. Recently, Mike Rohde's Portland travelogue peaked my interest. At first I wasn't exactly clear why. But through the process of writing this very entry I realized that his travelogue was not filled with overly-stylized drawings or excessive details, just sprinkles of doodles across the pages that allowed my imagination to simmer with visuals of places I've never been.
