Bold Shapes That Demand Your Attention



There's so much to like about the black and white spreads in Tyler Keeton Robbins's sketchbook. It's like having monochromatic dreams of symbols and patterns. His stark palette, gradients, archetypes, and organic shapes are intended to play in our collective unconscious. "Drawing, painting, or creating anything with impatient urgency," Tyler writes, "allows ideas to evolve before they're corrupted by reason."

Beyond the psychology, his sketchbook art is just plain stunning. I'm mesmerized by how he's created meaning and intricacy and depth with extreme limitation of color, shape, and space. You want to check this out.

Member Spotlight: Lauren Salgado





This is pretty cool. I recently learned that a doodle addict I follow on Instagram has been a member of the Doodlers Anonymous community since she was 14 years-old. She's now 19. Wow, I often forget I've been running this website that long. She writes in to tell me she's been obsessed with designing and drawing since, and that becomes quite clear when you look at her sketchbook that's filled with pages of lines, patterns and shapes.

What I like best is that each doodle looks like it could easily translate into a textile print, for use in home or apparel design.

Lauren, thanks for being a fan for so long and keep building on your talent. You can follow her over on Tumblr or Instagram.

Member Spotlight: Anika

I remember seeing Anika's work back in 2010 when she participated in a giveaway we were doing here on the site. It's been a long time since then, but now she's captured my attention again with her pattern a day series on flickr.

The quick and simple doodles loosely repeat themselves in bright colors on the pages of her sketchbook. She claims there's no theme, but look how complementary and developed they appear when presented in the context of a set. Join me in encouraging her to keep it going over the coming months. YAY Anika!

Sur Alert!

Bangkok illustrator Suralert jirawangso’s women inhabit an inked, abstract world of green spruce trees, coffee-cup-rainbows, lipstick, and mushrooms. I’ve tried-- I can’t 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?

Explosive

Valeria Rey Soto draws patterns, and boy, she does it well. She uses a mix of pen, markers and watercolors to create intricate, colorful, yet still delicate bursts of visual beauty. One after the other, somehow they just make you feel good. She even has an etsy account with a limited number of prints available for sale. Buy one, it'll make your wall happy.
