Collaboration Made Easy

I've followed the work of Draw, Gabby, Draw (Gabrielle Rose) for a quite a while now. She's definitely on the list of artists I'd like to collaborate with at some point, although I've never contacted her about it. Mainly because my "to collaborate with" list is getting out of hand, it's often hard to find a time when you're both free (and motivated) to produce some work together. I usually have a couple of collaborations on the go, but they can be slow and steady (we'll get to it when we can) type projects.

Thankfully Gabby has made it super easy to collaborate with her! She recently launched a side project called Gab Collab. The idea is simple, Gab paints a watercolour blob and uploads it to the Gab Collab tumblr blog, you download it and doodle on it, then submit it to the site.



All the collaborations appear on the Gab Collab blog, and as easy as that you've made a collaborative art work with an awesome artist!

These are a bunch of examples from a recent "blob". If you fancy making a Gab Collab of your own, head over to the website, grab the latest blob, and get doodling!

Paint the Town

Martha Rushworth runs around sketching parts of her town, or maybe it's more walk than run. Actually she probably just stands still and sketches, adds color, then continues on her merry way. No matter the method, it's the color palette she uses that has me so fascinated. Look at how bright and wonderful it completes her thinly drawn lines. I want to live in a Hollywood set made of these drawings. Make it happen.

All The Pretty Ladies

One of my first true loves was Wendy, a run-down all-blue Nissan (Datsun) Stanza. Some of my most memorable stories (from my teenage years) could be traced back to my old "deep blue" and I couldn't help but reminisce while looking at the "Ladies" set of illustrated cars by France Belleville-Van Stone. It's easy to see why: Most of the watercolor drawings reveal the innate character and age of each vehicle, with strokes that feel almost like wrinkles on a person.

I wonder what Wendy looks like now. Is she just scrap at a junk yard? Or is she, even with all her imperfections, someone else's first true love.

Member Spotlight: Marta Spendowska

Marta's work is a blast of color. From fashion illustrations to objects, food, abstract shapes and even patterns, she somehow manages to fill each with smears and gradients that play and overlay each other almost organically.

Marta joined DA in December of 2011, you can find her at martaspendowska.com and follow her on twitter.

It Bleeds

This new set of drawings by Rolf Schröter immediately caught my attention. Ink and watercolor mix, stain and bleed onto calligraphy paper bound in a handmade Japanese folded sketchbook. It's a visual feast, bon appetite.

Three Brothers



Cartoon Characters is a collaboration by three Dutton brothers: Mike Dutton (the artist), Henry Dutton (the music creator) and lastly, David Dutton (who master-minded the whole project).

David explains that he started off the project by raiding "all of [Mike's] sketchbooks; getting scans or shooting the more awkward pages" with his Canon 7D camera and that's the great thing about this video, you can see the personality and ever-changing tone in Mike's sketchbook as it gracefully animates frame by frame.

Girls, Girls, Girls.

God knows I love a beautiful drawing. And the addition of watercolor gets me every time. The simple lines of graphite mixed with that unexpected, gentle but bold splash of color - it's flawless.

Check out Natalia Sanabria's amazing handiwork.
