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.

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.

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...

Tumblr of the Week: Mr. Gentle



There's something slightly creepy about these drawings, but I can't quite put my finger on it (no pun intended). Maybe it's the Frankenstein-ish way the characters are composed with awkward and strange body parts that don't seem to belong together. Even so, they seem friendly enough to me. You might as well go visit this curious cast of creatures at Mr. Gentle's tumblr blog!

Tumblr of the Week: Adventure Journal



Today's Tumblr of the Week hasn't updated in a while, but it has enough cool content on it to share anyway. It's the adventure journal of Kailey, who tried to combat her shoddy memory span by drawing the events of her life every day. I love that it's really just a diary detailing what she did on a daily basis sprinkled with illustrative doodles. Some days there's only a few lines about how she feels and one thing she did. Others go into longer detail about all her activities and what specific drinks or food she had, to the point where the text has to squish itself around the drawings.

It's endearing to read all the little details that she decided were important enough to draw down so that she could remember it years later, like drinking hot chocolate after getting yelled at by a bus driver.

Tumblr of the Week: Bela Unclecat

Our first time crossing paths with Bela Unclecat was when she sent us back one of our Doodle Addict postcards from Japan with one of the most charming and lively doodles we have received. Just look at it! How many animals can you count in the left corner alone? There is a chicken thing standing on a cat that is holding a stack of tea cups that the chicken thing is drinking out of and there is a stream of tea coming into the teacup from a teapot, suddenly we've travelled all the way to the opposite side of the picture, what a magical journey that was and we're nowhere near done seeing all the sights there are to see.

There's plenty more where that came from on Bela Unclecat's tumblr. I just can't get enough of her nostalgically playful universe.

Tumblr of the Week: Klara Grancicova



The gem we found in our Tumblr followers this week is Klara Grancicova. Her simple geometric drawings gain a surprising layer of meaning from the words she adds to them. While browsing down her blog I found myself playing a game where I would just look at the drawing and ignore the words for a moment, then see how reading the text changed my perception of it. If I had seen one of her doodles on its own somewhere, I might have just thought "ah, cool" and moved on. But seeing the cohesive chemistry between every single one of her drawings from last year up until now is ridiculously cool.
