Funny, Inventive Doodles of an Investment Banker

matches skeleton bird doodle

Saeed Attari is a 36 year old investment banker from Bahrain and married with two children. Seems like a serious guy, but we know that doodle addicts come from all walks of life. In fact, Attari’s doodle muse is an imaginary pet named iBird! His doodles of iBird’s shenanigans are always interactive, incorporating mundane objects and contextualizing them into something exciting. These doodles look as simple as can be, but the ideas behind them pack a good punchline. Whether it’s food, phones, or his children’s toys, it seems like Attari can’t look at anything around his house without imagining what kind of trouble iBird would get into with it. It takes a good sense of humor to look at ordinary stuff lying around you on a daily basis and find a fresh way to have fun with it! Follow @ibird_art on instagram to keep an eye on iBird’s mischief.

NEWS: Our Epic Coloring Book was featured on the Dr OZ Show

In case you missed it, our Doodlers Anonymous Epic Coloring Book was on display on a short segment about adult coloring books on the Doctor Oz show yesterday. In the segment Doctor Oz talked about how adult coloring books are an excellent avenue for de-stressing.

That’s something we’ve been talking about since the release of our original adult coloring book over 5 years ago. It just feels so good to put color to paper and letting your imagination take over, zoning out, and seeing it fill in the page.

The Doodlers Anonymous Epic Coloring celebrates many styles of art from pure doodling, to refined and beautiful line drawings. A magical library, a lotus plant, a crowd of friendly commuters carrying umbrellas, intricate dream cities, cars, creatures, and cartoons-each illustration represents more than a stock pattern.

The immense variety found in the book appeals to both adults and kids, but also aspiring and seasoned artists. It provides you with a refined canvas to practice and improve your coloring skills. What would be your take on a particular art style? How would you tackle patterns versus a character?

Be sure to grab yourself a copy of the Doodlers Anonymous Epic Coloring Book at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or your local independent book store and send us your colored creations so we can share them with the world.

Odd Faces and Quirky Animations

I live to find random and happy projects like this one by Momoe Narazaki, a talented graphic designer and illustrator who recently launched a fun tumblr with close to one-hundred odd faces in funny and quirky animations. Never mind cat videos, just stare at these all day.

Doodle With Your Dog

Memories from my childhood are a bit hazy for me, but I have a very vivid one of my mom scolding me when I was eight years old for drawing on my wall. I remember feeling very offended that she was being angry at me instead of noticing how well I had drawn that scene. This moment came to mind when I found Rafael Mantesso's instagram. I know a ton of people whose instagrams consist mostly of pictures of their pet, but Mantesso has taken it to a new level. Living in an empty apartment full of blank white walls and only Jimmy Choo (his pet bull terrier, not the designer) for company, this doodle addict couldn't control his itch to scribble all over them.

Wherever Jimmy decided to lay down for the afternoon, his owner would follow with black markers and draw amazing scenes around his dog. His doodles themselves are simplistic, but the ideas are clever and humorous in a genius way. So witty that Mantesso's doodles caught the eye of Sandra Choi, creative director of the Jimmy Choo brand. Charmed by Jimmy Choo the bull terrier and his doodle adventures, she approached Mantesso directly for a collaboration! My inner eight year old is wishing I could have told my mom about this when she said drawing on walls will only get me in trouble.

If you love Rafael and Jimmy's work, you can pre-order their upcoming book: A Dog Named Jimmy!

Coloring Book Interview Series, #13: Aphrodite Delaguiado

Aphrodite Delaguiado is a designer and illustrator who thinks with ink. What does that even mean? She understands mistakes aren't all that bad, and sometimes end up being the coolest part of the drawing. I poked Aphrodite with questions about her art and what I got in response was inspiring thoughts on doodling and some pretty worldly context for her illustration in our Coloring Book Volume 4.

Doodles Save This News Anchor's Live Weather Forecast

A weather reporter from ABC News 4 was attempting to deliver his daily update on live TV when the computer that animates the forecast froze up. After a few minutes of small talk, the anchor team quickly doodled up a few weather icons and then throw them up onto the green screen behind him. It's a great example of improvising on live TV.

Tumblr of the Week: DERIK

How excited would you be if you were out for a walk and came across these guys eying you through a window? My favorite thing about these vibrant characters is how they bring life and humor to the otherwise colorless places they are found in. It's fun to see artists getting creative with the environment beyond their pens and paper. I'm lucky that DERIK happens to follow the DA tumblr so that I could have the chance to stumble onto his blog. Street artists like him make the world a more magical place full of colorful surprises around unexpected corners!

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!
