Instagram Likes, Pt. 7

This post is long overdue. I haven't posted my Instagram likes on here since December of last year, even though I've probably faved more than a 100 since then. I dug back and found ten to share with you.

The above photo is one of mine. It's of my tiny Field Notes memo book opened to a spread from my "Drawn Evolution" series. Check out some friends below and if you poke around Instagram a few times a week like I do, drop by and say hello. You can find me by searching @doodlers or @okat.

Doodle Mashup





I want to introduce you to one of my favorite illustration projects of late. It comes to us from Israeli artist, Geffen Refaeli. The concept is incredibly simple, and the result, flawless.

What started as a personal experiment to practice drawing and doodling has turned into a daily art project with over 20,000 followers (in under a year). Every day, Geffen uploads an illustration that was inspired by a mashup of her friends photographs. She takes bits and pieces from their pictures and creates one-color, surreal drawings. She then posts the drawings on Instagram (@dailydoodlegram) with links to the photo feeds that prompted it all to begin with.

I'm a fan, and I'd gamble to say so will you be. Prints are available at her recently launched shop.

Instagram Likes, Pt. 6

I have about 45 random apps installed on my phone and I confess I probably only use five of them regularly. Instagram is in that small group of five. I'm a visual person, so being able to pull a feed of images from folks that inspire me has become a daily pleasure/addiction.

This is another segment for one of my favorite columns on DA. Part six begins with one of my own drawings (at top) and continues to feature things from scribbles to refined illustrations from some very inspiring people. You can click the following links to view the archive: part one, two, three, four, and five.

Starbucks Coffee Cup Doodles





Tokomo draws cute characters that interplay with Starbucks coffee cups. Day after day she uploads doodles to her Instagram feed that receive quite the love (over 2,000 likes an image). Her consistency is incredible and I'm always pleased when she reveals how the drawing will play onto the surface of the cup.

Starbucks owes this girl some stock options. More after the fold »

Instagram Likes, Pt. 5

If you haven't noticed, I like writing these type of entries. It's fun to show off some of the things that inspire me or catch my eye over on Instagram. Here's yet another collection. Scroll down and look at all the pretty stuff.

The one on top is by me and a reminder that you can follow Doodlers Anonymous along by searching "okat" or "doodlers" in the app. See you over there soon.

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.
