How to be Instagram Popular

I drew the image above almost seven months ago, but it feels more fitting today than it did then. In the last week, Instagram went from being just a popular iPhone photo app to becoming the most popular photo sharing tool the world has ever seen.

A few days ago they released an Android phone version and just yesterday Facebook bought them for one billion dollars. They boast well over 30 million users and now with Facebook on their side, I expect that number will quickly double.

Like any huge network that hosts people sharing things, you get a lot of crap. A lot of garbage that finds its way onto the "popular" page too. If that's your objective, follow the steps above and you'll get there sooner rather than later. But if you ache for the creative and the inspired, I've been putting a list together of some really cool artists that hang out and share what they're working on.







It's a good resource if you're just joining the community and I expect to be adding more along the way (feel free to share it with others). You can find parts one, two and three here and while on Instagram, stay in touch, follow me by searching OKAT or DOODLERS.

Almost Chaotic

Each page of Zsolt Vidak's sketchbook feels like an explosion of color perfectly accented by bold and interwoven strokes. His lines make faces, expressions, letters, animals and gestures that culminate into vivid and psychedelic scenes.

And I must say, the above sketch of the 1950's Chevy-looking car (with the sobbing headlights) has been engrained into my memory since I've discovered it. KABOOM!

Showcase #4: Draw Your Destination

So many of us sit idle everyday dreaming of our next travel to somewhere fantastical and new. I know I do, and this week's showcase will have you yearning for that next adventure even more. Imagine being given a passport to travel anywhere you like, real or just in your imagination. Now simply draw it for us all to see. The destination is open for you to define as you wish. It could be as nearby as your local street market or as distant as planet Venus.

Share your drawn destination with us and you could win the perfect accessory for your next escapade, the one-of-a-kind Field Journal Notebook by Tom Bihn (a $75 value). A useful tool for any artist on the go, it's essentially a compact, portable, weather-proof, zippered notebook for doodling, journaling or sketching. It's made with love right here in the U.S. of A and it is the culmination of countless hours of design.

We just got one of our very own and must admit, this really is perfect for any urban sketcher. Read on for the complete guidelines to Showcase #4

Just Draw It

Michael Nobbs is a complete source of inspiration and motivation for the lazy artist and doodler. With over 24,000 followers, his twitter feed alone is a force to be reckon with as he posts link after link of inspiration. It doesn't stop there. For the third time now he's released a free eBook to encourage us all to draw, and then draw some more. Click here to download.

Life As I Go

She started with a Strathmore pocket sketchbook, spiralbound hardback. Continued on a Moleskine Cahier Plain Journal, softback. Finally settled on a Moleskine Notebook Plain Sketchbook, hardback. Whatever it is, Elaine draws out her daily life in the pages of these books. She fills the pages with lists, her objectives, thrift shop price stickers, quotes and everything in between. I got lost in her doodles simply because they are unpretentious and sincere.

Featured: ELBOW-TOE

ELBOW-TOE is the mad scientist of street art. His work is eclectic and ever evolving with content grounded in myth, symbolism and poetry.

I have always been fascinated by the direction of his art in the public spaces of Brooklyn and was therefore happy to learn that he carries a sketchbook with him on the subways of New York city.

For this awesome feature, we have 17 spreads from ELBOW-TOE's own book, all done flawlessly with a red felt pen. See for yourself

Featured: Matteo Gualandris

Matteo comes to us from the land of Northern Italy, where his mind seems to wander endlessly over the pages of his Moleskine notebook. We are featuring an unprecedented 32 images for his feature, showcasing a diverse set of Matteo's work with his obvious consistent style. My personal favorite seem to be the pages that have an almost infinite landscape of faces and characters. View the feature now!
