Colors and Crowded Faces

The sketchbooks that immediately catch my attention are the ones that are brimming with color. There is something scintillating about seeing so many colors confined to such a small space. It feels like bottled rampage even if the subjects in the pages are meek.





Each of the pages of Valerie Choi's recent sketchbook is crammed with characters piled atop of each other as burst of color overtakes them. It makes me feel as if the pages will break apart and the colors and caricatures will spill over onto her desk like water does when it can no longer be contained.

Valarie has documented her sketchbook in progress in this short video, which you won't want to miss.

Tumblr of the Week: A Droid a Day



Rob Turpin's A Droid a Day project is all about proving that you just can't get tired of robots. Since August 2013, he has been posting droid doodles every. single. day. Most robots are captioned with a name or title that is descriptive of their function, which adds a touch of personality.

I stalked his blog a little bit and found that he started doodling with pen and pencil more often to stop himself from putting more thought into drawing something that looks nice rather than capturing a great idea. "Throwing in a really broad shape with the markers makes you forget about trying to create something beautiful, it’s about creating a cool shape, or an interesting form." Wise advice for doodlers!

Be sure to follow his blog for tons of valuable insight. I especially like it when he shares his illustration process from initial sketch to final color.

Coloring Book Interview Series, #3: Paulo Correa



Illustrations in our coloring books all have their own personality, that's what happens when every page comes from a different artist. One of the stand-out styles is Philippino artist Paulo Correa. His sketchbook is full of a cast of crazy characters and so much going on in every image that you'll miss half the details if you only look at it for a few seconds. Click below to read his interview!

Tumblr of the Week: Mariano Andrés Bergara

The funnest part of the DA tumblr for me is checking out all the talented artists that follow us. My current fave is the blog of Mariano Andrés Bergara. He seems to be unstoppable when the mood to draw strikes because whether its in a sketchbook, photograph, or on the street--no surface is safe from his doodles.

The Sketchbook of Julia Yellow



There's something wonderful about the sketchbook of Julia Yellow. From the interesting compositions to the different rendering techniques, each page is a delight. The artist's sense of humor and personality are peppered throughout, with a slight touch of collage adding texture and depth.

Tumblr of the Week: Skye Lane Art



Today my eye was caught by Skye Lane Art while browsing our tumblr followers. I was pulled into her world by objects layered over pages of her sketchbook and the jarring contrast between skritchy doodles over neat computer graphics. I liked that she explains her art is born from doodles she does in class while dealing with her anxieties. I can almost picture her sketching away in secret during a lecture...

Heads Will Roll



I'm really enjoying the folksy art coming from Emmanuel Gutiérrez (aka EMMGUT) out of Costa Rica. His style feels familiar yet unique. I love how simple the drawings present in just black ink and then how they completely pop off the page when he adds the color and shading. His instagram feed is chock full of good stuff.
