Brrrrring... Brrrrring...

For many of us, drawing while on the phone is exactly how we got into the habit of doodling. I know that for me, I can hardly last on a call for two minutes if I don't have a pen and paper around to scribble on.

The following is a series of drawings made by DZO Olivier from France, all made without much thinking, during a handful of different phone conversations. And be sure to visit his portfolio for a taste of what he can do when he's not distracted by chit-chat.

Drawn Wallpapers for the Digital Age:
Art by Muxxi, #1

Unless you've printed this website on some paper, you are no doubt reading this on some sort of digital device. Maybe it sits on your desk or lap, or maybe it's small enough to be held in one hand or two, no matter the case, you deserve a beautifully drawn background to greet you every time you turn it on.

That's where we come in. We as in Doodlers Anonymous and the artists who've been invited to share their art with you.

Our first wallpaper is hand-drawn by Guatemalan artist Muxxi. A long time friend of DA, Muxxi shares with us her surreal world and fantastical characters. Download it free and make it part of your everyday. If you’d like to be notified when the next one is released, sign up to our newsletter.

One Dollar Hotdog

"Jubilant" is a word I’d use to describe the drawings of Andrew Neyer. The Ohio-based illustrator is a wearer of many hats (including being the Art Director and Head Curator at Yes), and one of them is an illustrator. "One dollar hotdog" refers to the title of Andrew’s blogger, which is aptly named. His work is so satisfying (like a one dollar hotdog) and feels inclusive and unpretentious (it’s not like we’re eating foie gras here).



I love his character design. It's sweet, but not saccharine. The proportions are elongated but don’t feel strange. Everyone has an equal chance at happiness, including people, pets, and electronic devices.

Dollar Dollar Bills

It's not often you can slip someone a single dollar bill and get something awesome in return. That $1 tip might get you a casual nod from the cute bartender. Or maybe an ice-cream cone on your way home from work?

Or... how about this. You give a one-dollar note to 100 New York artists and see what they do with it. That's what the gents behind the "One Hundred Dollars" exhibition did. And don't get me wrong, I love an ice-cream cone as much as the next kid, but this currency art is a little more special for a dollar, don't you think?

The exhibition is on until August 9, if you're in New York. Otherwise, just take a peek at our favourites here. You don't even have to slip us a buck.

All The Pretty Ladies

One of my first true loves was Wendy, a run-down all-blue Nissan (Datsun) Stanza. Some of my most memorable stories (from my teenage years) could be traced back to my old "deep blue" and I couldn't help but reminisce while looking at the "Ladies" set of illustrated cars by France Belleville-Van Stone. It's easy to see why: Most of the watercolor drawings reveal the innate character and age of each vehicle, with strokes that feel almost like wrinkles on a person.

I wonder what Wendy looks like now. Is she just scrap at a junk yard? Or is she, even with all her imperfections, someone else's first true love.

Like a Whisper

This may not make much sense, but I find Julia's work to be so gentle. It's almost like it isn't there in front of me. Of course there is color and lines and texture, but everything is wispy, like a dream. I want to close my eyes and visit her drawings now, please don't come to get me.

And if I were you, I would visit her blog just for the header alone.

In the Thick of It

todernst/schabernack's illustrations suspend us in tension and time-- caught in a moment that is at once engaging and uncomfortable. You feel as if you're walking into the middle of a story that, like Morse Code, is hidden within the texture of meticulously-drafted dots and dashes. How different. How lovely.
