Tumblr of the Week: Mariano Andrés Bergara

The funnest part of the DA tumblr for me is checking out all the talented artists that follow us. My current fave is the blog of Mariano Andrés Bergara. He seems to be unstoppable when the mood to draw strikes because whether its in a sketchbook, photograph, or on the street--no surface is safe from his doodles.

If you're addicted to tumbling as well as doodling, follow Doodlers Anonymous on Tumblr for even more daily inspiration. You might even see yourself on there!

Doodles + Transparency Sheets = MAGIC



Aug(De)Mented Reality is a fresh video that's recently been getting passed along the internet, and for hella good reasons. Hombre_McSteez combines traditional cell animation with still photography from his iPhone into one of the most captivating videos I've seen lately. It's always super cool to see 2D drawings roaming the 3D world, but seeing the real objects and landscapes responding to being played around with is what really makes this video come alive. We couldn't resist sharing something this perfectly executed.

Follow @Hombre_McSteez on Instagram to see more animations weekly!

Getting Sacred with Adrian Landon Brooks

Adrian Landon Brooks is a Houston, Texas artist that I first came in contact with through graffiti art. We were both graffiti artists and had a lot of mutual friends. Many years later we were both living in Austin, Texas and this is when I became more acquainted with his non graffiti art. We exhibited together in a group exhibition and also collaborated on a mural. He often paints on found objects and draws on old photographs. I love his use of color and strong imagery often focused on the concept of a savior bringing in aspects of religious painting such as the use of halos. He says about this, "I am drawn to sacred art of all kinds, especially art that emphasizes a 'savior.' Finding my creative voice brought freedom and redemption from everything that ails me. When I am creating work, the outside world is on pause and I can completely let go of all the trials and tribulations of the day. I feel that this is represented in the iconic images I create and is my attempt at paying homage to something greater than myself."

Check out more of his work at AdrianLandonBrooks.com and @AdrianLandonBrooks on Instagram.

Great Pal Alexandra Valenti



Alexandra Valenti is a great photographer here in Austin. She can shoot just about anything that moves or doesn't move, too, I guess. But the true artist comes out when she adds her hand work to each photo. Instead of using Photoshop to make the photos amazing, Alexandra prints them and then paints directly on top of them.

She also makes great drawings and doodles, as well. Here are a few below:

The Space Between



This has been making its rounds on the web, but I just couldn't resist posting it too. It should not be missed. I've plenty talked about how much I love constraints, as they tend to be a great catalyst for ideas you might not have ever considered and this illustration project completely embraces that notion.

Thomas Lamadieu has been drawing in the space between buildings for his new series, SkyArt, and he's making us all look up again. Open spaces of blue sky replaced with drawn characters stuffed amongst the architecture. What's not to love?

Sketchbooks In The Wild

It's cool to see a lion in the zoo, absolutely. But to go on safari and spot a lion prowling around in the wild is undeniably cooler! Same with sketchbooks. (stick with me... I'm going somewhere with this...)

To see a scan of a sketchbook is one thing, but to see a sketchbook out in the "wild", in front of the parks and street corners where they were first doodled... even better! This is what artist Paola Gaviria Silguero from Buenos Aires does. She photographs her playful sketchbooks along with a different background, like a postcard of where she was for each page.

It also helps that her doodles are really great. Random puddles of colour, like being swept up in a street parade or a happy sugar-high! Ok now, the sketchbook safari begins...

How to be Instagram Popular

I drew the image above almost seven months ago, but it feels more fitting today than it did then. In the last week, Instagram went from being just a popular iPhone photo app to becoming the most popular photo sharing tool the world has ever seen.

A few days ago they released an Android phone version and just yesterday Facebook bought them for one billion dollars. They boast well over 30 million users and now with Facebook on their side, I expect that number will quickly double.

Like any huge network that hosts people sharing things, you get a lot of crap. A lot of garbage that finds its way onto the "popular" page too. If that's your objective, follow the steps above and you'll get there sooner rather than later. But if you ache for the creative and the inspired, I've been putting a list together of some really cool artists that hang out and share what they're working on.







It's a good resource if you're just joining the community and I expect to be adding more along the way (feel free to share it with others). You can find parts one, two and three here and while on Instagram, stay in touch, follow me by searching OKAT or DOODLERS.
