Sunday Grins! The Ultimate Hotel Room

To design my own hotel room is one of my doodling dreams! Imagine an unlimited budget for a cosy treehouse in the forest, elaborate night lights and (it almost goes without saying) a bedside soft-serve machine. Those are my essentials for a "dream" hotel room. What are yours?

Take a peek at the floor-plans our Sunday Grins crew came up with this week. From giant disco balls, to custom "sewer" rooms for the Ninja Turtles to slide in on. For Chloe McGregor (above) if there's a novelty-sized Yakult beverage on the room service menu, she'll be a happy customer!

From Sketches to Carved Coins

You'll do a double take when you see John Schipp's re-carved coins. It's okay, we did too, these coins are so insanely detailed you'd swear they're fake.

It's obvious you can only get to such a result with tons of patience, dedication and talent, but we were still so curious about the process that I contacted John to clue us in on how he turns coins into amazing art.

Featured: John Malta

The world of John Malta is in another realm. His shaky uneven lettering, his colorful yet dark and eerie illustrations, his fascination with punk shows and pet lizards - they all make for something that's weird and wonderful at the same time.

To this day, John's cat doodle (I'm still not quite sure if it's really a cat but I love him anyway), which you can find inside our DA coloring book, remains as one of my favorites.

For his feature, John answered a few questions for us in doodle form. His answers, as you will see, are full of character, full of texture, full of awesome. He also sent over some photos from inside his studio in NYC, where he is living now.

Moldy Magic. That's how he refers to his work. And really, I couldn't have come up with a better pairing of words to describe John Malta and his sultry craft. It's bound to grow on you, if it hasn't already.

Featured: Clemens Behr

I secretly refer to him as "Clemens The Great." It's true. Because his work is truly that good.

I can't remember when I discovered Cle's work. It must have been a year or two ago. But I do remember my reaction when I first saw the chaotic juxtaposition of basic geometric shapes, sharp angles and bold lines. It's the same reaction I get every time, even after frequent visits to his site. My jaw drops to the ground, my eyes get watery from not wanting to look away or blink for an instant.

We at DA are nothing short of ecstatic to have this exclusive "Doodle Interview" with Clemens Behr. He has also shared with us some of his recent works and an inside peak inside his very colorful studio brimming with tapes and boxes.

Enjoy the interview and the extra goodies. And here's a tip I've learned: It's okay to blink.

The Witty Universe of Simone Lia

Back in uni days, I was lucky enough to have illustrator and comic artist Simone Lia as my tutor and just look at her work and you’ll see exactly what I mean by lucky.

Simone’s work is a constant source of inspiration for me, I love her way of seeing the world and how she visually translates her observations perfectly both in her illustrations and comics.

Her body of work is so consistently rich in narrative and packed with humour. I’m particularly fond of her heart warming graphic novel Fluffy, and her Jesus as she saw it when she was six years old is absolutely priceless…

Every week I look forward to her blog updates but I also thought it was about time to catch up properly and asked her a few questions especially for this post. Here it goes:

Sunday Grins! with Jim Bradshaw

The super doodler is back! In February he was a very pleasant guest contributor on DA (read all his posts here)... but this time around, he's wearing a fancy pink dress and dancing about with robots!

Uh oh! Now I've gotten you all distracted with the thought of Jim Bradshaw's hairy legs in a fancy pink dress. After you've had a peek, our friend OKAT already wrote some helpful words about the man who is never without his Moleskine.

Sunday Grins! with Mogu Takahashi

What's the coolest thing we can hold onto as we grow up? (hint: it's not anything to do with 'mint condition' or Ebay) ... it's creative joy! Making marks without any hesitation!

And that's why I am heaps smitten over Tokyo artist Mogu Takahashi!

I've heard people try to be mean about a drawing by saying 'Pff, I could have done that when I was like, three years old!'. But I think this is the biggest compliment! No-one makes happy marks like a three year old with a crayon can. But Mogu does it with the motor skills of a grown-up to boot!

Her happy little characters pop up on everything from handmade dog food jars, to funny little stuffed toys, even mandarins! Ha! There's always a good time to be had on her Flickr page or in her cute Etsy shop... and you'll want to take a peek at her very nice scrapbooks too.

But first!... Get happy with the five doodles that Mogu drew just for us. If ever Sunday Grins was an appropriate name for this Q&A, it is today!
