Sketchbook: A Year in Jerusalem





Ever feel homesick for a place you're not even from? I never visited Jerusalem, but these drawings feel like old memories of somewhere I haven't been yet. The artist is Vincent Mahé, a Parisian who spent a year in Jerusalem and brought it back with him in a sketchbook. His sketches include the big touristy sites everyone knows, but also the empty streetsides and tops of buildings that you don't normally see in photos. There's something captivating about the simple lines—-the way he creates shadows with them, the way the drawing seamlessly becomes less detailed the further away from the focus point.

Scandroids



Artem Solop is a Ukrainian artist who constantly daydreams of robots. Or could be a robot, who knows. His sketchbook is packed with page after page of machine madness and I still want more. Gimme ALL the robots. Solop calls it robot pop, a catchy fit for his mech monsters with occasional bursts of neon green and hot pink. Stay plugged in to his work by following him on Behance or his blog.

Fine Lines, Mustached Men, & Rain Drops



Why are we drawn to certain styles, to specific aesthetics? Taste is a peculiar, and tenacious thing. And although I can’t explain it, it’s that magnetism that pulls me to the illustrations of Gabriel Huici. I counted no short of 17 umbrellas. I don’t inherently love umbrellas. His line work is sparse. I don’t inherently love sparse line work. But, I love his pieces. Every one. There is a touch of vaudeville; there is a touch of hipster. The fine lines are so intentional and terse they create suspense- like listening to a pregnant pause or waiting on a dangling participle.

Blue Monday



If you're feeling blue this Monday afternoon, simply take a look at the wonderful drawings I discovered in Gosia Herba's sketchbook. A prolific illustrator and graphic designer from Wroclaw, Poland, Gosia makes creating these delightful abstract illustrations look so fun and easy. Visit his Behance portfolio for an endless amount of inspiration.

Doodles Inspired by Lyrics



Do you ever get so into a song that you begin to visualize it? These sketchbooks are an intense mix of music, writing, and drawing all coming together to make something awesome. The artist is CaliDoso, a self-described quote freak whose imagination catches fire when the right words at the right time click into place.

Bold Shapes That Demand Your Attention



There's so much to like about the black and white spreads in Tyler Keeton Robbins's sketchbook. It's like having monochromatic dreams of symbols and patterns. His stark palette, gradients, archetypes, and organic shapes are intended to play in our collective unconscious. "Drawing, painting, or creating anything with impatient urgency," Tyler writes, "allows ideas to evolve before they're corrupted by reason."

Beyond the psychology, his sketchbook art is just plain stunning. I'm mesmerized by how he's created meaning and intricacy and depth with extreme limitation of color, shape, and space. You want to check this out.

Tumblr of the Week: Renée Louise Anderson

If you haven't noticed by now, we loooove looking at pics of sketchbooks. Scans are nice for appreciating the smaller details better, but there's something about the spontaneity of taking a photo the moment you finish drawing. Renée Louise Anderson takes some of the most visually appealing pictures of her doodles. It's nothing extravagant, no insane filters… Just a soothing simplicity in composition that makes you want to stare at the page (or leaf) a little longer. Just look at them so you can see what I mean, and don't forget to follow Renée's blog.
