Inspiration: Drawn Interviews

Questions + Drawn Answers with Morgan Blair

by Jamie Tao 51

Featured: Morgan Blair | Doodlers Anonymous

I love Morgan Blair. Pass it on.

Everything from her smudgy pencil marks to her hissing tiger drawings and animated gifs that are hurtful to the eyes (I bet she does it on purpose just to mess with you) - her work is the kind of work that lingers in your brain, forever and ever, and it's a problem.

A graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, she is living and working in Brooklyn, NY and her interests include trees, legos and making art forever.

For her feature, we wanted to take full advantage of her ridiculous doodling skills - the kind of ridiculous that makes you envious. We asked her a few questions and she answered using her habitual tools - paper, pencil, pen and color.

Take a look around, fall in love with Morgan and her scratch 'n' sniff art. If the scent doesn't do you in, the art will.

And that's not all, gang. Morgan took a break from her road trips and adventures to also share with us highlights of some of her more recent work and works-in-progress.
