A Drawing Desk Like No Other

As a parent of two little doodlers and a daily drawer myself, I can't help but fall in love with this Kickstarter project by The Cardboard Guys. They've taken everything great about fostering creativity in a kid and magically created a drawing desk and chair made of cardboard, that's fun to build, functional to use, and best of all designed to be doodled all over. The top of the desk even comes with cubbies to store all your art supplies and built to close away when not in use.

No joke, I want one for myself. They've only got 8 days left to meet their Kickstarter goal. Support them (before it's too late) and little ones will rejoice everywhere.

Anorak Publishes the Winning Drawings

I was so happy to get my hands on the Summer edition of Anorak magazine. What an incredible issue: First, it starts off with a banging cover by Jack Teagle. Then it's page after page of spectacular illustrations and stories by folks like Lesley Barnes, Anat Sifri and Cachete Jack, with principal illustrations by Matthew Bromley.

And finally it ends on two full spreads of black and white drawings from the Doodlers Anonymous community. There's no doubt kids will be eager to color these pages in. Congratulations again to all of you for participating and playing along, and special thanks to Anorak for the incredible effort to always publish beautiful content.

The Living Doodle: Turning Kid Drawings into Plush Toys

Heather and Tracy from Sunny Little Studio are bringing your kid's imagination to life by taking their flat 2D drawings and turning them into real-life plush toys. Just looking at some of their examples has re-kindled so much joy within me. Every creation is spontaneous and fun and the end result is some of the most creative plush toys I have ever seen. Wow... do I feel like a kid at a candy store.

Wonderland

Some will argue that children are the ultimate doodlers. They are uninhibited by the world around them and their imagination runs amok with unrelenting ease. As adults we often wonder how the imagery of children doodles would look like if it were the real world.

Korean artist Yeondoo Jung took on that challenge. He hand-picked a select number of colored drawings from 5-7 year old children and transposed them into real-world scenes. The end result is "Wonderland", a collection of photographs that are mesmerizing and sometimes even intense.

If we all lived in a world doodled by children as portrayed by Mr. Jung, our lives would be a colorful and poetic place.

The Doodle Vending Machine

It's nice when someone doodles a picture for you. But holy smokes, imagine if that doodler were sitting snug inside a human-size vending machine!

The DoodleVend is a clever little project by Sally Leach, encouraging artists to interact with their audience in an instant, playful way. Local illustrators take up residency inside the custom-built DoodleVend (think cubbyhouse meets carnival... with a token slot!) and you can chat to them through a bright red funnel, or peek in the window as they get busy doodling.

The DoodleVend takeaway menu includes party hats, badges, and cupcakes (edible ink!) - all doodled on as per your request. I love how the silliness of this project makes it so approachable. There's just no shying away from a custom party hat!

DoodleVend is popping up around the UK, but even for us non-locals, their Facebook page is good fun!

Read on for more photos and a little interview as DoodleVend maestro herself, Sally Leach, shares a little more about the project...

Doodles for Kids

"If you please," said the stranger, "draw me a sheep." That simple line from The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry is exactly what I think of every time my pen hits the paper. The book captures what we miss by being grown-ups and a good reminder not to look at everything so literally.

Having two kids of my own, I am at awe by what they come up with and even more inspired when I see their thoughts spill onto paper. The following are some drawing books and toys both my children use daily that I highly recommend; even though, a few markers and paper are just as effective.

Scribbles by Taro Gomi, Thumb Doodles Book by Klutz, Aquadoodle's Travel Pad or Doodle Mat, Write & Learn Letter Pad by vtech, Little People Doodle Pro and Crayola's Bathtub Crayons.

Disclaimer: Although the above list make great "kid" gifts, I play with them just as often as they do.
