Animated GIFs Drawn with Pencil



Miranda Pfeiffer recently dropped me a line about her drawings and animated GIFs made with mechanical pencil. I like how she renders normal objects found in real life, but then adds a bit of quirkiness when going into her hand-drawn animations.

She really gets the process too, I love this description by her, "Because they are brief and only have a visual component, when a GIF is powerful, itís done with economy and intelligence." See more Ľ

There's A Heavy Weight On My Shoulders



When I look through our DA Flickr group, the work of Ann Pajuvšli always catches my attention. I can't help it, it's unique and modest. Something about the angle and crop of her drawings that really strike me with emotion. I especially love her collection of drawn people with stones for heads.

Open Call / Coloring Book Vol. 3

Woohoo! It's that time of year again, where we open the floor and collect submissions for our annual coloring book. Every year the artwork and participation blows us away.

For those of you that are new to Doodlers Anonymous, last year alone we received over 350 incredible drawings (watch the teaser video), and narrowed our selection down to 60 for print.

We want everyone to participate, grab your pens and sharpies and get to it. We've set an aggressive deadline that is fast approaching (November 5th, 2013), so if you're interested in participating go here for complete details Ľ



To celebrate the open call, we are discounting a combo-pack of our volume one and two coloring books by 15% (shop here).

Wonderfully Charming Drawn GIFs



I've had this in my bookmarks to share for a while, and I truly regret not posting about it earlier. It's a beautiful collection of animated GIFs made with the soft lines from colored pencils. The clips themselves are these fantastically awkward loops of people doing common things. Check out the Tumblr site, I guarantee you'll fall for this project by Thoka Maer.

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.

Member Spotlight:
Daniel Jamie Williams



All of the eyes in Daniel's drawn characters are deep, and almost completely lost in sadness. They're consistent throughout his work, holding your stare and carrying you from one piece to the next.

Click on through, there's a really great time-lapse video of Daniel working his watercolor pencils after the fold.

The Pen Mover





I discovered Rod MacGregor's work yesterday on our DA flickr group. It's a great mix of comical characters and silly captions, drawn with sketchy black lines in pen and ink. These are some of my favorites of his. Enjoy more over at his blog.
