Tumblr of the Week: Gourmet Scum

I really enjoy it when artists add captions or speech bubbles to their drawings of people. Maybe it stems from my love of comics or maybe the added commentary makes the experience that much better. The Tumblr of the Week today belongs to an 18 year old artist from Chicago named Meredith, who seems to be pretty heavily influenced by 80's aesthetics. Something about these marker doodles does give me flashbacks to certain old cartoons I used to watch on television. Find more of these goodies on Meredith's blog!

Personal Space, What's That?



I love it when I discover cool stuff like this shared by fellow doodlers on the DA flickr group. This doodler does not waste paper. I feel like monocat's sketches really capture the spirit of spontaneous doodles as almost every inch of the page has something crammed into it.

Even though it may look like a mishmash of unrelated doodles, there's a cool chemistry between the colorful characters as they seem to be reacting to one another and their predicament of being squeezed together and having someone else intrude on their personal space. Enjoy them, I did.

Not Your Typical Ghost Story

Bradley Wind's Hungry Ghost series is based on a concept in Chinese folklore of beings living in a state of constant craving. When I look at their enormous empty bellies and mouths tragically too small to fill them, I can almost feel their pain. Even without knowing the mythology behind them, you get an eerie vibe from their blue bulbous bodies and bulging eyes. Drawn with pen and marker, every portrait has a character of its own and my mind can't help but float away with ideas about what each ghost's story could be.

Drawing the Cityscape in His Head



Bricks, windows, arches, curves, angles, roofs... you name it, if it's part of the city architecture, it's very likely Daniel Van Der Noon has drawn it.

Everything about his art inspires me. They are all hand-drawn and inked directly onto a wall, window, or canvas. No prior sketching or mapping. It's just one stroke here, another line there and soon enough buildings and rooftops appear.

In his own words, "I like to travel a lot, visit new cities, see new places, hear new noises. Through these skylines I guess that the perks that I experience from traveling around are amplified in ink, and the memories recorded in these ongoing sprawls of images and text."

You'll find plenty to like in the following images, and I guarantee you'll especially enjoy the process videos after the fold.

Color Pens Gone Wild



Mossi's markers make quick, short strokes of color that run into each other to create random shapes (and sometimes faces) born from his subconscious. Look closely and you'll be staring into a trippy collection of intricate lines and patterns, making it impossible to follow, but easy to love.

Whiteboard + Marker + Doodles = Stop Motion Animation awesomeness!





It's true, whiteboard animation videos are trendy now, but they're typically used to explain complex services or somebody's political platform. Jonny Lawrence on the other hand is having a blast making them, just for the sheer fun of it. It involves tons of time, patience, storyboarding and doodle skills, but the final result is incredibly worth it.

Besides making the two animations above, Jonny is a talented concept/storyboard artist living and working in the United Kingdom.

Look Up and You'll Miss It

This one is for my fellow down-lookers, you know who you are! When we go for a stroll, we like to keep our chin pointed down and our gaze fixed a few inches in front of our boots. To find our way home, we look at the cracks in the pavement rather than the street signs! And we're the ones who always seem to find that stray ten-dollar bill on the sidewalk... lucky us!

Well, my fellow down-lookers, let me introduce you to a kindred doodler. Her name is Heike Weber and she's a German artist who works with the canvas under our feet. Check it out, these doodled floor installations would make even the snobbiest up-looker take a peek down!

By the way... they're all hand-drawn with markers & acrylic paint!
