Member Spotlight: Juan Pez





I'm really digging the workspace pics form Juan Pez's desk. His table-top is messy and covered with ink, brushes, scraps, markers, tape, rulers…barely enough room for the drawing itself. And I love that his work is just the same, a mishmash of sloppy characters and comic-like illustrations.

Intricate Hand-Drawn Flowers Direct from Olka's Sketchbooks

I just stumbled upon the nature doodles of Ukraine designer and illustrator Olka and had to share them with you. I'm not normally into this style, but the infinite details caught my attention and they definitely deserve yours. See them in color »

POV: The Sketchbook as a Center Point



Through his beautifully-executed point of view sketches, Thomas Cian takes us on the road with him. We step into his skin, with the sketchbook resting on our lap and pencil in hand, and visit a classroom, a café, or a car with intimacy and familiarity. We have entered his personal space and it is welcoming and warm. And somehow the sketchbook – as center point – seems to create the scene instead of merely recording it.

Tumblr of the Week: Gwion Christmas



Gwion Christmas’s drawings are replete with images of feverish expression. Communication, or rather frustrated communication, is everywhere. Language seems confused or interrupted as if there is something important to convey, that’s unheard. There are lines from mouths that circle and intersect but never make it from speaker to audience, there is a conversation in shapes, and there are detached speech bubbles littered throughout. As a lover of expression and a lover of words, I love Gwion. You will too.

Inside the Sketchbook of Pat Perry



I've been following Pat Perry's work since 2010, when I posted a time-lapse video of him creating a beautiful layered painting over the course of a few weeks (you can watch it here).

Today I want to focus your attention on his sketchbooks. They are so intricate and detailed, it's really incredible how much goes into each spread. His drawings are so much more than just sketches of what may be in front of him, they are scenes that will capture your attention and seem to be alive, almost breathing with life. You can see plenty more over on his website: patperry.net

An Incredible Book of Drawn Vintage Cars by Lapin

We've featured French artist Lapin many times here on DA. Every time I look at his work it inspires me to drop everything and sketch. You too will fall in love with the composition of his lines and the mass collection of sketchbooks he's filled from cover to cover (look for yourself).

So it's with great joy that I learned today that he plans on publishing a book (Oldies but Goldies) with his incredible collection of drawn vintage cars found on the streets. I'll say it again, these are not drawings he's making back in his studio with photo references. He literally stumbles across a car and can't imagine passing it without respecting its history, so he sits down right then and there and draws it.



In his own words: "I project the dim light of those years in my book through my drawings and try to tell you the beauty behind the wrinkles, the experiences behind the broken parts and memories behind their dust so that they will be immortal."

He's running a campaign to raise funds to print this fantastic book. Follow the link and support this project (by doing so you'll also secure yourself a copy).

Revisiting Alex Eben Meyer's Sketchbook



Alex Eben Meyer is a Brooklyn based illustrator, and was the very first member to be spotlighted on Doodlers Anonymous back in 2010. We work in the same building in Brooklyn, and I was lucky to meet him a few months ago. Although his work has been featured here before, I'm a big fan of his latest observational sketches and thought I'd share some of them with you. These watercolor drawings are usually quick glimpses into slices of life; sitting at the local coffee shop, a neighborhood street corner, a roadtrip landscape, or the view from a window in New York. He also frequently posts figure drawing studies that share a similar sensibility. Controlled and loose at the same time, Alex's sketches seem to be edited spontaneously, stripping away specific details, while abstracting others. These drawings have occasionally found their way into his editorial illustrations, being utilized for clients like The New York Times, HP, and Design Sponge. There is a unique point of view and sense of humor in all of Alex's work, and to see more of it, you can go to his website, sketchblog, tumblr and twitter.
