Kelly Lasserre

Hey all! I'm excited to be sharing some great illustrators and projects on Doodlers Anonymous this month as a guest blogger. To start things off, I'd like to tell you about the work of Kelly Lasserre!

Kelly and I were both Illustration majors at MICA (Maryland Institute College of Art) several years ago. It's great to see how her work has grown since then. Much of her work includes text, and Kelly's hand lettering is in harmony with her drawing and painting.

Overall, I find Kelly's illustrations really amusing, but also informative (I now know how to make a Bloody Mary), and reveal some sad-but-true things about life in general.

Check out: Kelly's website and her Tumblr.

MeloDRAWmatic, I Love You

Erika Kuhn has some of the most dark, moody and dramatic sketchbooks I've ever seen. It's personal. It's stimulating. It's plenty full of angst and beauty and love and passion. Viewing the images on DA hardly give them justice, as she's always presenting them in the context of her poetic words, so be sure to visit her blog (she writes in Spanish, but Google translate will give you the gist of it).

I am curious what comes first for her. Is it the melodramatic words that accompany and inspire each of her sketchbook drawings or the other way around, with the drawings inspiring the words? To be honest, it doesn't even matter, I am in love.

Making the Grade

Israel is inspiring: the history and culture, the sand and sea, the light and grace. Bezalel, the Jerusalem-based Academy of Art & Design, has cultivated a bounty of talented and progressive artists across the disciplines. Because Iím aware of Bezalelís reputation, I expect a certain caliber of work from its students. But I was, admittedly, sucker punched. Gabriella Barouchís sketchbook is mature and elegantóthe composition, the colors, the delicate patterns. Thereís innate talent, and thereís training. Clearly Gabriella was blessed with both. Hard to believe she still has a year left of school.

Draw Here. Draw There.

It's a new year and it's time to make brand new, amazing, even-better-than-last-year's drawings.

If you're not familiar with "The Sketchbook Project," you are now. (Take a look, we mentioned it here.) Just a quick recap in case you're not familiar: The nice people at Art House Co-op sends a sketchbook out to anyone who wants to be a part of this project (for a minimal fee). You draw all over it. You send it back to them when it's filled and then your sketchbook is exhibited at galleries as it makes its way across the country on a tour.

Elizabeth Caldwell has started her 2011 sketchbook and it's on its way to greatness. She's a stay-at-home mom and a freelance Designer and Illustrator. Take a peak inside her first few pages - lots and lots of playful type. Tell me, what's not to like?

Time Moves Faster

I have to apologize for the lack of updates on my part. When they say that NY moves fast, I had no idea they actually meant it. Work has been keeping me extra busy and I have also decided to go back to school at night. My love for DA, however, still runs deep, and to prove it, I have decided to share the pages of my sketchbook. I carry it in my purse at all times and it is slowly falling apart. But I am especially fond of this sketchbook because I have always wanted a red one (it's the little things that count).

The pages inside are a mix of brainstorming session notes, random thoughts, ripped scraps of paper and color. It's a little bit messy. It's a little bit playful. And I like to think that it's a little bit like its maker.

The Perfect Marriage

Nazario Graziano's work makes me so giddy because it's a beautiful combination of the hand drawn grittiness married with the polished feel of the computer. And that, my friends, is what I call perfection.
