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.

From Belgium with Love

I recently found out that Kitty Crowther is from Belgium with a British father and Swedish mother. In fact, it was in Brussels where I first discovered one of her books, the one that shocked me most, "Petite home et dieu" (Little man and God).

What I like most from her is the lack of digital retouching, the spontaneous drawings, the feeling that she has done them very quickly (non-stop), and the way in which she uses colour, lights and blacks above all. I also like the fact that she uses colour pencils, it makes me think that someday when I get older, I could be like her.

Some issues or themes can be difficult for a kid to understand, but her subtlety makes it all very easy.

I hate that she doesn't have a website, because I couldn't find all the images that I wanted, but here are some.

Climbing Hand-Drawn Mountains

If you could have any super power, which one would you choose? How about the superpower to actually crawl inside a drawing and feel, breath, touch and stomp around in this hand-drawn fantasy land? How sweet would that be.

To all you genies and leprechauns out there... please hook me up! I'd really enjoy an afternoon stroll through these creamy pencil landscapes by Maria Gosselin. I'd bring a friend, too. Looks like it might get a bit wild in there.

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.

Pristine and Magical

Sean Alexander's drawings are a breath of fresh air. I'm not kidding. I literally just took a deep breath while looking at his flickr page. They remind me of the very primitive, very simplistic, very beautiful art you see inside art history books. So much detail and craft is put into each drawing. His tools of the trade? Micron pens, stonehedge paper, prismacolor pencils and number 2 pencils.

Member Spotlight: James Barker

What can I say? I seriously love everything James draws. It's messy, raw and untamed, but all very intentional at the same time. His work is all over the place too, from colorful and bold portraits of dead kings and queens to black and white comic-like panels of zombies and devils. I've collected some of my favorite here, but also make sure you don't miss his drawn posters of compiled masks, flags and planes.

James became a member of Doodlers Anonymous in December of 2009, but you can mainly find him on flickr and jamesillustration.co.uk

Fresh Outta Art School

What do I fancy about Katie Turner? She draws in her sleep. Well, she probably doesn't actually make marks while sleeping. But she seems like the sort of young illustrator who would often fall asleep with pencil in hand.

Two weeks ago she graduated from Parsons in New York, and I can feel that still-new freshness in her illustrations. It's obvious she's been taught well about colour and composition - but I mostly like how youthful her drawings feel. There's something eager about her.
