The gem I found while browsing our tumblr followers this week is the blog of Gavin Ashworth, a student in New Zealand. His messy collaged doodles are made on found paper (some sheets look like school papers), sometimes incorporating unexpected materials like wood and melted plastic. It's a dirty, damaged mishmash that looks disgusting and awesome at the same time.

The See . Saw series by L Filipe dos Santos consists of before and after pictures of his sketchbook. The "before" pics look a lot like ink blots, but they are actually gouache stains that the artist draws over. It's intriguing that he includes a photo of the stains before he drew over them, because it lets me first imagine what I would see in them myself. That makes it all the more interesting to compare how Santos' creative interpretation of the stains is so very different from my own. What do you see?
