A Wrinkle in Time

Mark Powell makes incredible drawings on vintage envelopes dating back to 1852. He uses a simple Bic Biro pen to draw these aged faces that are as full of creases and texture as the envelopes they sit on.

This Precious Thing In My Clumsy Hands

The online world can be exhaustingly fast-paced. Like BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM! It's my own doing though. I tend to have fifty-million tabs open at a time. If something catches my eye it will get a quick OH!COOL! LIKE! before I flip to the next shiny thing.

But every now and then, I'm stumped. A drawing finds its way into my online-hands and everything else goes hush. It's like being a kid at the beach and finding a tiny shell that feels like treasure in my clumsy hands. There's a million other identical shells along the water, but this particular one is the one that I want to take home and keep in a jar next to my bed... although I can't explain why I chose it. Or did it choose me?

Anyhow. That's what happened when I found this owl drawing by the Orka Collective. I had to pick it up and hold it in my clumsy online-hands for a while.

Get Published

Back in 2009 I described Anorak Magazine as "the happy, colorful, illustrated, quirky, character-filled, page-turning, content-driven mag for everyone," but they simply call themselves "the happy mag for kids." Happy being the key word here, and this summer Doodlers Anonymous is going to help them spread some of that joy around.

How you ask? Anorak is committing 6 pages of their June issue to your illustrations, with each page featuring two images, so that's a total of 12 artists getting some nice attention and love from us all (not to mention a free issue of course). We have only 3 guidelines for your participation: (1) Your art must be black and white, so kids can choose to color it in (2) It must be horizontal (in other words landscape mode), so we can easily fit two on a page (3) Your illustration must be themed FAVORITE SPORTS, but of course invented and imaginary sports are welcomed too.

Deadline is April 25th. Get drawing and submit your artwork to sports{at}doodlersanonymous{dot}com. The team at Anorak and DA will pick the final selection of twelve. Good luck to everyone and follow us on Twitter or Facebook for updates along the way.

Stereographic Animated GIFs



This has been passed around the internet and deservedly so. Dain Fagerholm is taking static pen and marker drawings and making them twitch and wiggle to our delight. His characters seem to lift off the page in pseudo 3D. I honestly can't stop looking at them, someone please knock me out of this trance.

Found via Drawn.

Awestruck



Yes, I know this is not doodling. This is drawing (by Tokyo based artist SHOHEI) taken to a whole new level. I've never seen detail and shading done like this using only a ball point pen. Simply amazing. Watch it three or four times, and then share it with everyone you know.

Oh and I strongly suggest you watch this in full screen mode.

An Illustrated Daily Life

Let's begin the week with an incredible artist who loves to create spontaneous drawings with color pencils. Nayoun Kim was born in Seoul, South Korea. After graduating from University (majoring in Fine Art) she moved to Toronto where she became an illustration student at Sheridan College in Oakville.

She enjoys to draw her daily life, also, she likes to capture her feelings at the moment as much as possible. She tends to draw very quickly with pencils and color pencils and always carries a sketchbook so she can draw wherever and whenever she wants. Nayoun wants people to feel happy through her work.

To enjoy her magical drawings, visiting her blog.
