The Many Faces of a Toilet Paper Roll

The Many Faces of a Toilet Paper Roll | Doodlers Anonymous

I only recently came to know Andrew Orlando. He stopped by our studio to drop off a drawn Doodle Addict Postcard and with him was a bright green tote bag. When I looked inside, dozens of faces stared back at me. I immediately lit up, the bag was filled with toilet paper rolls that he covered with bright and bold colors of paint and marker. Eyes, teeth, scribbled hair and so many expressions formed these comical characters. Over 30 rolls in hand and he told me he had tons more back home, I believe he said his goal was to reach one-thousand.

I was sold and feeling like I wanted one of his comical characters for our studio. With toilet paper rolls on the mind, the obvious answer would be to have him paint up our bathroom door. He drew up some ideas on scraps of paper and soon after his pencil was scratching against the door.

A couple days later and there was a funny shaped monster (with the coolest sneakers) in line waiting to pee at our restroom. True story.
