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...

Gone Forever

I love this photo. I love it more and more each day and I can't say it's any one thing. The composition of everything makes it like the trip of a lifetime is about to begin. It's the distressed suitcase for sure, no, no I think it's probably the colors and expression of the drawn character. Ahh hell, I even like the tiled sized squares she's standing on and the style of denim and sneakers. It's the work of Amaia Arrazola, who's blog I just spent thirty-five minutes on. I can't remember the last time I did that.

I've learned this about her: she likes to draw on most anything, from aprons to brown paper bags and she's delightfully good at it. Click here and you'll see what I mean.

Some will argue that children are the ultimate doodlers. They are uninhibited by the world around them and their imagination runs amok with unrelenting ease. As adults we often wonder how the imagery of children doodles would look like if it were the real world.

Korean artist Yeondoo Jung took on that challenge. He hand-picked a select number of colored drawings from 5-7 year old children and transposed them into real-world scenes. The end result is "Wonderland", a collection of photographs that are mesmerizing and sometimes even intense.

If we all lived in a world doodled by children as portrayed by Mr. Jung, our lives would be a colorful and poetic place.

It's Pencil vs. Camera!

We all live in our own world and see what we want to see. But Ben Heine shows us what his mind sees. He takes reality (photographs) and adds his own bit of weird and crazy (drawings) to create a different world, his very own. It's a fun battle between drawing and photography.

"You can choose to draw something in a realistic way or to rather go crazy. I personally prefer to show unreal things on the paper because the photo is a mere reflection of the world we live in," says Ben.

Swamp Donkey

I don't know much about the Swamp Donkey, but I do know that I love his work. He's got loads of great drawings and photography. I really enjoy his wild style and repetitive use of horns/tusks.

Take a look at the collaborative efforts of Damien Gosset and Carole Mauret, both from Paris, France. Put a photographer and an illustrator together and you get a fun set of sharpie-altered Polaroids. What a wonderful way to "deface" a picture.
