Sidewalk Scribble



Animator/Filmmaker Peter Lowey from Australia does an incredible job on this short film. Give it a play, I've already watched it three times this morning.

No Need for a Clean-Up

One can tell that when Zé Otavio opens up his sketchbook, he holds nothing back. And that is exactly how a sketchbook should be used. His pages are layer upon layer of dirty, rough scratches, scribbles, tearings - you name it. I say we all open up our sketchbooks today and let ourselves go.

Great Heights

Comic-style storylines, fine architectural detail, and precise drafting. I could get lost in the graphic and textual layers. I'm enamoured. Take a gander at Timothy J. Reynolds's Moleskins and you will be too.

Draw Here. Draw There.

It's a new year and it's time to make brand new, amazing, even-better-than-last-year's drawings.

If you're not familiar with "The Sketchbook Project," you are now. (Take a look, we mentioned it here.) Just a quick recap in case you're not familiar: The nice people at Art House Co-op sends a sketchbook out to anyone who wants to be a part of this project (for a minimal fee). You draw all over it. You send it back to them when it's filled and then your sketchbook is exhibited at galleries as it makes its way across the country on a tour.

Elizabeth Caldwell has started her 2011 sketchbook and it's on its way to greatness. She's a stay-at-home mom and a freelance Designer and Illustrator. Take a peak inside her first few pages - lots and lots of playful type. Tell me, what's not to like?

Taking a Line for a Walk

I had the pleasure of meeting up with Mr. Fender this weekend, Vaughn Fender that is. He met me at the coffee shop across the street from my apartment (I am so lazy but shhh...don't tell him that). We spent the rest of the afternoon talking and sharing stories. He was sporting a back pack filled with goodies, including this book (it's actually a very thick magazine). He told me it is one of the books he always grabs when he needs to get inspired. And after flipping through the pages, I agreed. So although this book is a bit of an oldie, we both urge you to get it in your hands if you don't already have it. It's page after page of drawings and scribbles and all things doodle-icious.

Imaginary Friend

I recently discovered Aaron Brady's mind in my flickr stream and am in love with the photo play of his doodled characters and our real world. He drops them into the scenes so well that you forget you are looking at something 2D and that interaction is exactly what makes me wish they would just come to life.

The madness doesn't just stop there. He's got an entire collection of scribbles on book pages and a live doodle video shot from an overhead projector. I put a few of my favorite here for you to see »

When Inside Comes Out

I bought a book by Sabrina Ward Harrison titled "Spilling Open" a few years back. It transformed my approach to art. The book is, I believe, the first of a few of her published art journals. It is filled with loose, colorful, scribbles, doodles, paint strokes, hand lettering, photos, found objects and more all collaged together, forming very striking, energetic eye candy. More than pretty pictures, she bares her soul on every page with brutal honesty. Freeing inspiration spills out of her. Sometimes it is driven by triumph and other times, painful insecurity. Either way, the result is a more beautiful world. I highly respect her bravery as well as her talent.
