Drawn Intermission

Anton Marrast makes surreal pictures. He plays with photographs he's taken himself and edits them together to create his digital art. You can see some of them featured in his interview over at Empty Kingdom.

But he also loves working on paper. To me, his drawings seem to capture a perfectly still frame from some interesting movie that has yet to come out. I want to know the story behind each one of them.

A Different Way to Doodle

When I was first asked to contribute to DA this month it really got me thinking about what it meant to doodle. The first thing that springs to mind for me is always the random scribbles I do while I'm talking on the phone. But there are so many different ways (and materials you can use) to doodle.

I feel like I''m slightly underselling the work shown here by calling it a doodle. But doodles can also be as simple, or as intricate as you want them to be.

All of this work is by the amazing Jared Andrew Schorr, who also happens to be a really nice guy. If Jared had created all of this work with pens or paints I'd still love it. But there's something about the fact that this is all made with cut up bits of paper that takes it to another level. I'm always amazed by the amount of detail Jared manages to cram into his work. Especially when you see how TINY some of this work is. He must have the steadiest hands and highest level of patience in the whole world.

The picture at top is the "lobby" of Jared's portfolio website. You should head over there and have a click around, and you can see a lot more of Jared's work on his Flickr photostream. There's plenty of photos on there that show you how big these pieces actually are.

I must have clicked "favorite" on 99% of his photos!

Sur Alert!

Bangkok illustrator Suralert jirawangsoís women inhabit an inked, abstract world of green spruce trees, coffee-cup-rainbows, lipstick, and mushrooms. Iíve tried-- I canít pick a favorite. His drawings layer patterned wallpaper, geometric shapes, hand-drawn type, and a confounding control of color. How do you say love in Thai?

August's Guest Contributor:
Sara E. Barnes

For the month of August we are welcoming fellow blogger and illustrator Sara E. Barnes as a guest contributor here on DA. Sara is the creator and voice behind the wonderfully curated website Brown Paper Bag and is working towards her MFA (Illustration Practice) at the Maryland Institute College of Art.

Sara's own work is an amazing mix of color and collage of scraps, ink, paint, and embroidery. I'm fascinated by how the loose pieces of cut paper come together to reveal such a complete and controlled final artwork. I've gathered a few of my favorite works by her here to introduce you.

One More Time, for the Cheap Seats
in the Back

Every weekend Joe List peppers his copy of the Guardian newspaper with cute, slimy, dorky creatures. He gives a face to every faceless object, and ensures that cranky dinosaurs in tiny bowler hats are given their front-page glory! With online news becoming the norm now, he might not have much longer to get these creatures down on actual newsprint, so we best make the most of it while we can, right?

Confession. We've actually mentioned Joe before. OKAT featured The Annotated Weekender on DA in 2009 (yep, that long ago...) but since you probably don't have the spare-time or the breathing apparatus to dive that deep into our archives, here it is again. There's over FOUR YEARS of new content for you to catch up on and giggle at.

Here are a few of my favourites. This was not an easy cull to make!

12 Drawings A Day

This animation by Denis Chapon is epic. There can be nothing more important for you to do right now than to watch this.

In 2008, with no exact plan in place, Denis just took to doodling on the backside of used paper. He made 12 drawings a day (that equaled one second of animation). And then, each of the following days, he took the last three drawings from the day before and kept on animating. Three years later, that slow accumulation of little bits of effort over time rendered an incredible movie that's captivating to watch and completely filled with spontaneity. What an incredible victory.

The Many Faces of a Toilet Paper Roll

I only recently came to know Andrew Orlando. He stopped by our studio to drop off a drawn Doodle Addict Postcard and with him was a bright green tote bag. When I looked inside, dozens of faces stared back at me. I immediately lit up, the bag was filled with toilet paper rolls that he covered with bright and bold colors of paint and marker. Eyes, teeth, scribbled hair and so many expressions formed these comical characters. Over 30 rolls in hand and he told me he had tons more back home, I believe he said his goal was to reach one-thousand.
