Pimp My Post-It



Back up if you thought post-its were just for mundane to-do lists and whatnot. Gangster Doodles has taken office supplies and turned them into some seriously NSFW material. You think you're fancy with your "paper" and "art supplies," meanwhile in just 3 weeks the superfly Aaron Dickenson of G. Doodles has cranked out 174 mesmerizingly sick portraits of thugs and divas doing their thing with just sharpies and markers on a 3X3 post-it note.

Here are some snippets of what you wish your life was like:

Drawn Tattoos

The lovely and incredibly talented Wendy MacNaughton has been illustrating tattoos (and the stories behind them) for the tumblr blog; Pen & Ink, and now (deservedly so) she is turning it into a book.

Wendy and her Pen & Ink collaborator Isaac Fitzgerald are in the final stretch of putting it all together, but not before reaching out to me with a last-minute call for submissions. Do you have a tattoo with a compelling story behind it? If so, they want it, and they want it now. Take a pic of your tattoo, write a few words with its story and send it to: penandinkproject {at} gmail {dot } com

Human Faces For Days

Is there anything nicer to draw than a human face? There's just something about two eyes, a nose and a mouth (and a bit of human flesh) that can lull an HB into sweet, happy, auto-pilot. I like that every hand-drawn face, no matter how similar, is never the same. The slightest twitch of a wrist can make a frown into a seductive smirk, or a wink into a lazy-eye.

I reckon Laura Gee shares my affection for doodling faces! She's an illustrator/set-maker living in London, and this is a peek into her hand-drawn facial records. See more drawings on her (kinda-new) blog Lone Drawings.

A Slice of Life

Seo Kim's comics are ones after my own heart. In general, my favorite stories are those that are relatable to the human experience on some level, even if they don’t relate to MY experiences. Does that even make sense? Basically, I like to consume media that shows people living life.

Seo's comics are funny, and reflect someone that has too many ideas in their head, takes on too many projects, and is maybe a little bit stubborn. I especially relate to-much-food-in-hands-forgot-utensils comic. It is a daily occurrence for me.

All available on Seo’s Tumblr.

Seas of Graphite

Wherever the work of Melissa Castrillón may take us, we are never far from her delightfully rotund subjects. Melissa has a light hand that is slightly unsteady, which gives the feel that there is constant motion in her illustrations.

She’s able to translate many of her sketches into finished illustrations, which can be a hard middle ground to find - you want it to look finished, but still want to maintain the spontaneity and freshness that comes from sketching and creating on the fly. I think for Melissa, she’s able to communicate a sense of control (in her compositions, handling of graphite) yet with her mark-making still retain the qualities that make sketchbooks so wonderful.

Sexy Hamburger

Sometimes when I eat out for dinner I get a bit overwhelmed with the menu. The waitress is tapping her foot while I ummm and ahh between the chef's special or an old favourite, or the risky but delightfully-coloured "drink special". I really cannot be buggered with all these meal options, may I just say "whatever" and you choose it for me? Please?



Anyhow. Here's a few freshly hand-picked culinary doodlings by Kyle Fewell from his blog Hello, this is food. No need to choose one. Just eat them all up.
