Kate Gavino's Drawings of Readings



Quotes are a powerful force. Reading the right ones can change your entire perspective on life, love, and other big deals. Weird to think that a few words can have that effect! Kate Gavino is a New Yorker who goes to book readings regularly, and isnít satisfied with just tweeting a good quote when she hears it. In her prolific Last Nightís Reading series, she sketches portraits of the authors while she is at their reading, alongside a favorite quote from the night. Itís the perfect marriage of her passions for art literature! So many of these are inspiring and thought-provokingÖ I think Iíve just been convinced to start checking out book readings around me. See plenty more Ľ

Leave a Little Mystery

I found a peculiar art blog with almost no details on the doodler responsible for it. O4YA draws characters that seem like personified emotions. Sometimes childlike and other times creepy (or occasionally both), almost every illustration seems like a prompt for a story. The details in the drawings are specific enough to spark curiosity, but not enough to answer my questions. See more Ľ

Little Boxes on the Hillside



I've been casually admiring some quaint little towns I wish I could live in. Any one of these houses nestled tightly amongst trees and other homes looks perfectly cozy for me. I associate drawings of buildings squashed together with the bustle of cities, so it's unusual for me to be looking at these homes practically smothered with no room between them and yet feel the opposite of city life. It's probably Samantha Dolan's intricate details on the leaves doing the trick. Her patterns are obsessive and consume the image until there is nowhere left unfilled. Still, there's something tranquil that comes from following the repetition of familiar shapes. See more Ľ

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.

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.

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!
