The Art of Taking Off Clothes



There are some pieces that even when they are complete, still look like works in progress. I LOVE IT. After all, that could probably apply to the majority of doodles.

Adara Sanchez Anguiana is a Spanish artist who has perfected the art of imperfection. If her illustrations looked any more "complete", I don't think they would have captured my attention as deeply. Her favorite subject is the human form and WOW is she good at making every pose and angle of it mesmerizing. My favorite is her Take Off Your Clothes series, there's something great about how she captures people just in the middle of a quick intimate motion.

June's Guest Contributor: Rik Catlow (aka rikcat)



I first discovered and wrote about Rik Catlow's drawings back in September of 2012, during a member spotlight on his "urban pop art" style. I've been following his updates ever since and his tricked-out collages just keep getting better.

It's my pleasure to introduce him as our guest contributor for the month of June. He'll be blogging alongside our usual team and highlighting artists and other visual finds that are sure to peak your interest.



In the meantime, be sure to check out his incredibly cool paint jobs on smashed aluminum cans. He's also got an Etsy shop filled with original handmade art and as an added bonus, we are giving away a Rik Catlow digital wallpaper that's hot off the presses for you to enjoy. Grrr!

When Women Laugh



Inspired by Roy Lichtensteinís Shipboard Girl, Danor Shtruzman captures laughing women in watercolor. His work shares the same cliched femininity and comic book sensibility as the pop art icon, but his use of greyscale on aged book pages adds a texture and meaning all his own. His Laughing Girl series is an unabashed tribute to happiness in a sometimes lonely world. Smile and the world smiles with you.

Tumblr of the Week: Scribblings



Is there a name for that feeling of wishing you could jump into an art piece? I'm feeling it right now as I scroll through maruti-bitamin's Tumblr. I'd love to step into the shoes of the serene kids she draws and explore her watercolor world, touch and smell the strange flowers growing out of me, and play with the fantastical critters all around the dream-like environment.

If you're addicted to tumbling as well as doodling, visit Doodlers Anonymous on Tumblr and follow along for more daily inspiration. You might even see yourself on it!

Revisiting Alex Eben Meyer's Sketchbook



Alex Eben Meyer is a Brooklyn based illustrator, and was the very first member to be spotlighted on Doodlers Anonymous back in 2010. We work in the same building in Brooklyn, and I was lucky to meet him a few months ago. Although his work has been featured here before, I'm a big fan of his latest observational sketches and thought I'd share some of them with you. These watercolor drawings are usually quick glimpses into slices of life; sitting at the local coffee shop, a neighborhood street corner, a roadtrip landscape, or the view from a window in New York. He also frequently posts figure drawing studies that share a similar sensibility. Controlled and loose at the same time, Alex's sketches seem to be edited spontaneously, stripping away specific details, while abstracting others. These drawings have occasionally found their way into his editorial illustrations, being utilized for clients like The New York Times, HP, and Design Sponge. There is a unique point of view and sense of humor in all of Alex's work, and to see more of it, you can go to his website, sketchblog, tumblr and twitter.

Member Spotlight:
Daniel Jamie Williams



All of the eyes in Daniel's drawn characters are deep, and almost completely lost in sadness. They're consistent throughout his work, holding your stare and carrying you from one piece to the next.

Click on through, there's a really great time-lapse video of Daniel working his watercolor pencils after the fold.

The Woods at Play



Sarah Nicolas Williams was born in the wilderness of Vermont and raised in Virginia's Shenandoah valley. The woods of her childhood seep into her graceful indian ink and watercolor vignettes and blur the boundaries of her backyard. Sophisticated woodland animals in polished brass buttons enjoy a slice of cherry pie, or recline on a moonlit hammock, with the utmost civility. Soothing images of nature in repose. Brought to you, brought to me, by UncommonGoods.
