Inside the Sketchbook of Gabriel Picolo



Since launching Doodlers Anonymous back in 2009, I've seen my share of Drawing-A-Day projects, but so rare do they ever capture my attention like this one has by Brazil based artist Gabriel Picolo.

His daily drawings are deeply intricate and scenic. How one can pull off this intense of a drawing every day for a year is beyond me. If you're a fan, like I expect you should be, follow him on Instagram for more drawn goodness.

Illustration Around the World



I would love to walk a mile in Pablo ientile’s shoes-- which are probably quite worn by now considering he recently spent six months journeying through thirty cities in ten Asian countries. Pablo, who likes drawing as pablo bear when on the road, is traveling the world meeting and collaborating with artists on his brilliant comic book project. Each artist, uber-talented in their own right, will illustrate the parts of the comic that occur in their cities resulting in a first-person narrative with a crazy cool mashup of styles. Can’t wait to see the end result! Follow Pablo's journey online at illustrationaroundtheworld.com or mobile via his Instagram.

Doodle Mashup





I want to introduce you to one of my favorite illustration projects of late. It comes to us from Israeli artist, Geffen Refaeli. The concept is incredibly simple, and the result, flawless.

What started as a personal experiment to practice drawing and doodling has turned into a daily art project with over 20,000 followers (in under a year). Every day, Geffen uploads an illustration that was inspired by a mashup of her friends photographs. She takes bits and pieces from their pictures and creates one-color, surreal drawings. She then posts the drawings on Instagram (@dailydoodlegram) with links to the photo feeds that prompted it all to begin with.

I'm a fan, and I'd gamble to say so will you be. Prints are available at her recently launched shop.

The Reconstructionists

I stare at the flashing cursor, tongue-tied and stupefied-- outwitted by the subject. How to write about a project which is at once worthy and fundamental, and arrestingly, profoundly beautiful? The Reconstructionists features a different trailblazing woman every Monday who has "reconstructed ... our understanding of ourselves, the world, and our place in it." It's a hefty feat, but if anyone could pull it off it's surely the talented team of illustrator Lisa Congdon and writer Maria Popova.

The project begins with a cartoonist, the original soul sister, a timeless diarist, an inventor/actress, an author/art collector, and an abstract-expressionist painter -- iconic and provocative women who played, performed, and permeated meaning, better known as Lynda Barry, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Anais Nin, Hedy Lamarr, Gertrude Stein, and Agnes Martin, respectively.

The illustrated portraits, hand-lettered quotes, and accompanying micro-essays are as vibrant and compelling as the women they honor. Hats off ladies.

The Píccolo Print Project

We've just got word that our lovely friend Sara Barnes (of Brown Paper Bag) and cohort Lisa Perrin teamed up on a new venture, named Píccolo, a collaborative illustration project dedicated to the small things.

To get it off the ground, they've launched a Kickstarter campaign that could use your support to reach its goal, and in return, you get one print (or all four) commissioned for their first project, by the illustrated talents of Yelena Bryksenkova, Michael C. Hsiung, Philipp Dornbierer and Paige Vickers.

In fact, I'll let them tell you all about it, watch the cute, stop-motion video below and then click on over to Kickstarter to help make this project a reality.
