Her Life with a Little Bit of Fiction



Paintings, drawings, words. All of it. I'm in love with Herikita's art. It speaks truths in soft colors and is quite often made-up of angled homes and rooftops, pets and insects, women and men, all of whom are sharing their awkward feelings and I just want more and more of it.

Her bio alone was enough to make me smile. Here's a small bit of my favorite part, "I work at midnight like Cinderella’s mice, almost always, when everyone is sleeping and something pops up in my mind.."

It's such a great visual.

Inside the Sketchbook of Gabriel Picolo



Since launching Doodlers Anonymous back in 2009, I've seen my share of Drawing-A-Day projects, but so rare do they ever capture my attention like this one has by Brazil based artist Gabriel Picolo.

His daily drawings are deeply intricate and scenic. How one can pull off this intense of a drawing every day for a year is beyond me. If you're a fan, like I expect you should be, follow him on Instagram for more drawn goodness.

Type & Time: Drawn Typewriters



The sound is seductive: typebars striking ink ribbon; the bell of the carriage return swinging left. In my selective nostalgia, typewriters were never used by anyone except authors - typing stoically in a room with light filtered through plantation shutters, in the company of scotch glasses and a wastebasket of crumpled pages.The typewriter embodies a writing process that is hard and stark and dirty and mechanical. It’s a symbol of the beauty of process, the struggle of wordsmithing. And so my love for the typewriter is also a love for its aesthetic. I am giddy for illustrations of vintage typewriters, drawings where you can almost smell time and dust preserved. Here are some of my favorites.

Drawing the Cityscape in His Head



Bricks, windows, arches, curves, angles, roofs... you name it, if it's part of the city architecture, it's very likely Daniel Van Der Noon has drawn it.

Everything about his art inspires me. They are all hand-drawn and inked directly onto a wall, window, or canvas. No prior sketching or mapping. It's just one stroke here, another line there and soon enough buildings and rooftops appear.

In his own words, "I like to travel a lot, visit new cities, see new places, hear new noises. Through these skylines I guess that the perks that I experience from traveling around are amplified in ink, and the memories recorded in these ongoing sprawls of images and text."

You'll find plenty to like in the following images, and I guarantee you'll especially enjoy the process videos after the fold.

Tumblr of the Week: Klara Grancicova



The gem we found in our Tumblr followers this week is Klara Grancicova. Her simple geometric drawings gain a surprising layer of meaning from the words she adds to them. While browsing down her blog I found myself playing a game where I would just look at the drawing and ignore the words for a moment, then see how reading the text changed my perception of it. If I had seen one of her doodles on its own somewhere, I might have just thought "ah, cool" and moved on. But seeing the cohesive chemistry between every single one of her drawings from last year up until now is ridiculously cool.

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!
