Member Spotlight: Alvaro Diaz-Rubio



What luck. Here I am digging around our website for someone to feature when I stumble upon the work of Alvaro Diaz-Rubio and quickly discover he's an incredible artist and illustrator from South Florida that actually studied right down the street from our studio. It's a nice coincidence when that happens.

Alvaro's art takes me back to a time of vintage comics and being 13 years old trading gnarly Garbage Pail Kids cards outside the mall's convenience store. It's clear he draws all day long and even claims he'll most likely doodle on the inside of his coffin. His illustrations have appeared in publications like the Village Voice, LA Weekly and the New Times. Help me welcome Alvaro to Doodlers Anonymous and you can always check out more of his work at his website, Operation Underwear.

For something extra special, scroll down for a great time-lapse video of Alvaro drawing a quirky rendition of his lineage.

An Incredible Book of Drawn Vintage Cars by Lapin

We've featured French artist Lapin many times here on DA. Every time I look at his work it inspires me to drop everything and sketch. You too will fall in love with the composition of his lines and the mass collection of sketchbooks he's filled from cover to cover (look for yourself).

So it's with great joy that I learned today that he plans on publishing a book (Oldies but Goldies) with his incredible collection of drawn vintage cars found on the streets. I'll say it again, these are not drawings he's making back in his studio with photo references. He literally stumbles across a car and can't imagine passing it without respecting its history, so he sits down right then and there and draws it.



In his own words: "I project the dim light of those years in my book through my drawings and try to tell you the beauty behind the wrinkles, the experiences behind the broken parts and memories behind their dust so that they will be immortal."

He's running a campaign to raise funds to print this fantastic book. Follow the link and support this project (by doing so you'll also secure yourself a copy).

Welcome to Beautown

Beau Bergeron is a doodler, designer and illustrator whose characters inhabit a place called Beautown, populated with bright colors, abstract lines and shapes. The world Beau creates is playful, friendly, inviting, and shows a real love of creation and drawing. I've known Beau for awhile, and he's a really inspiring guy to be around. He always has a constant stream of new projects and ideas in the works, while experimenting with his style and techniques to bring them to life. I'm really excited to see how Beautown continues to develop and grow.

Beau is currently based in San Francisco and works as a designer at IDEO (check out this great video he made for his job interview). You can follow his work and process at welcometobeautown on Instagram.

Real Deal Abi Daniel

Abi Daniel is an illustrator and designer making super rad illustrations for all sorts of causes. Her attention to detail is pretty amazing and style that reminisces back to text-book illustration styles.​



Abi applies her talents at a local screenprint shop, Bearded Lady, where she preps separations for screens and designs posters to be printed. Her illustrations work great for all sorts of causes from rock shows to hand made boots.

I've been stoked to work with Abi on a few projects including a zine for Crummy House. She's super fun to hang out with and has a great attitude towards work and life.

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.

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.

Jump for it, you pipsqueak!

If I were to do a big written introduction right now, it'd be like having your big brother stand on his tip-toes and dangle an ice-cream above your head, just out of arms reach. You'd be like, aww come on, JUST GIVE IT TO ME already!

So I'll make it quick. These are the sketchbooks of illustrator, designer & wild child, Natalie Andrewson. They're really cool. OK, bye! *finally drops the ice-cream into your hands and walks off with a smug look on my face*
