You know a show is great when it inspires a ton of fan art, and Breaking Bad has certainly given us a lot to doodle about. As the show reaches its final episode, we've decided to put together a little collection of some of our favorite Walter White drawings from around the web. What's cool about this collection is that you can pinpoint the transformation of Walter White's character into Heisenberg through the different styles and methods each artist chose to use.
It's true, whiteboard animation videos are trendy now, but they're typically used to explain complex services or somebody's political platform. Jonny Lawrence on the other hand is having a blast making them, just for the sheer fun of it. It involves tons of time, patience, storyboarding and doodle skills, but the final result is incredibly worth it.
Besides making the two animations above, Jonny is a talented concept/storyboard artist living and working in the United Kingdom.
No man's an island. We are made up of the random faces that crowd us on the street, the flirtatious faces that populate our dreams, and the familiar, comforting faces that inhabit our memories. Those faces—the faces of others—make up our life experience. Could you capture them all? Guilherme Kramer of Sao Paulo spent a year doing just that. He covered a wall with the people he sees in the crowd--each painted face seemingly eager to tell his own story. Take some time and hang out with them.
These are not doodles, they are life like character drawings found in Chamo San's moleskine and I cannot stop looking at them. Each one seems to tell of a moment in time with no beginning or end, just a middle. And take note of the white marks, what perfect subtlety.
Tattoos, invisible eyes, intricate wrinkles and black lines are common themes in his work. I find that his characters can sit alone on a white page and still feel like they have generations of stories in their eyes, in their pose and in their gestures. Farizwan Fajari is Speak Cryptic.
Mariana Abasolo is a fellow Brazilian and quite the avid doodler. Two major points for that! The use of black and white versus color in her drawings, combined, are the perfect mix. They are simple and a little wacky, just the way I like 'em. Oh, and she's already a member of DA! Three points! She's on a role today.
I've followed Mario Kolaric (aka Sretan Bor) for a little while now and have gotten use to him posting black-and-white illustrations for his series of "dark" zines, but recently something of color has been coming up in my image feed.
I was surprised to learn it was him behind the colorful strokes of overweight bodies in splendid pose and action. He looks to be having lots of fun with (what seems like) a new set of felt pens. Love it!
