Blockheads - Faces Doodled on Post-It Notes

Drawing a face on a post-it is pretty common when you have a pad handy and get the impulse to doodle, but Erik RVA takes it to the next level. His massive series of faces on post-its is impressive because he doesn't seem to run out of ways to make them have unique personalities that come across strongly.

His post-it blog calls itself "My life on sticky notes," which is relevant because often the background of the post-its adds some meaning to the doodle. Whether he is doodling a friend, doodling at the pool, or at the barbecue, or over his taxes - seeing what inspired him to pick up the pen and markers right in the picture behind the face is pretty neat.

Doodlers, Assemble!

It's normal for those who spend a lot of time on trains to develop the habit of people-watching, but October Jones takes it to the next level. Observing what the commuters around him are wearing and doing, he doodles a face onto a post-it to stick over the person's head and suddenly the strangers around him are familiar faces that he has known his entire life. It's jarring to see nostalgic characters like Kermit on his iPad or Batman slumping in his seat, and I can't get enough of it. Pretty funny to think that extraordinary characters put into such an ordinary situation would act just like any of us do.

Pimp My Post-It

Back up if you thought post-its were just for mundane to-do lists and whatnot. Gangster Doodles has taken office supplies and turned them into some seriously NSFW material. You think you're fancy with your "paper" and "art supplies," meanwhile in just 3 weeks the superfly Aaron Dickenson of G. Doodles has cranked out 174 mesmerizingly sick portraits of thugs and divas doing their thing with just sharpies and markers on a 3X3 post-it note.

Here are some snippets of what you wish your life was like:

The Daily Coffee

This morning (and every morning) I need my coffee to get going. Sometimes for the caffeine, sometimes for the ritual.

It seems Brandon Ortwein would agree. Since October 2010, Brandon has taken to making a daily coffee cup post-it note drawing. As you'd expect from a caffeinated doodle, they are full of color and energetic marker streaks. I love these drawings as a collection. It's a reminder of how something simple, done overtime, could look impressive and complete.

Blackout

You can't really tell, but the art you see in these images is actually drawn on post-it notes. That's because illustrator Kristen Leonard is not afraid to go all out with ink, covering every possible centimeter of her post-it note.

The end result is some of the most tenebrous art you're likely to see on a 3"x3" piece of paper.

Good Bye Dinosaurs!

I love simple ideas with great effect. Well, dans le ciel tout va bien (in heaven everything is fine) made that great effect on me the other day when I found his post-it drawings, especially his "Good bye dinosaurs!" series. His combination of strong, dramatic scenes with the fragility of little post-it papers made me remember something I heard a few years ago about how big formats are more intimate than the little ones, because your whole body can fit in them. It's a nice theory, but today, I prefer these post-its more.

One more thing: dans le ciel tout va bien will make a book out of his post-it collection for "fais le toi mÍme", a french festival of edition, music, etc. at Lille in September.

Tiny Notions

There's something to be said about the sentiment behind a quickly drawn note, which is the exact concept behind Tiny Notions. Lisa Przybylski does (almost) daily post-it drawings for no reason at all. If I found any of her drawings lying around my desk at work, it'd pretty much make my day.
