Sketchbooks In The Wild

Sketchbooks In The Wild | Doodlers Anonymous

It's cool to see a lion in the zoo, absolutely. But to go on safari and spot a lion prowling around in the wild is undeniably cooler! Same with sketchbooks. (stick with me... I'm going somewhere with this...)

To see a scan of a sketchbook is one thing, but to see a sketchbook out in the "wild", in front of the parks and street corners where they were first doodled... even better! This is what artist Paola Gaviria Silguero from Buenos Aires does. She photographs her playful sketchbooks along with a different background, like a postcard of where she was for each page.

It also helps that her doodles are really great. Random puddles of colour, like being swept up in a street parade or a happy sugar-high! Ok now, the sketchbook safari begins...

We all enjoy a bit of a doodle! That's why we're here. Or maybe you got lost and were searching for a whole other kind of doodle... uh oh. Anyway, hello! My name's Lisa. I'm author of The Scribble Diary, a doodling book to inspire self-reflection. Also my new book is ME, YOU, US to fill out with your friends! Come find me on instagram @scribblediary


  1. Powerpaola ♥ Super talented artist and a very nice person too. She's not from Buenos Aires, she's from Ecuador, raised in Colombia and now she's living in Buenos Aires :)

  2. mmm.good!very good

  3. what a good idea to present your sketchbooks

  4. This started out as practicing making eyes which I am horrible at which in turn turned to mountain scape which in turn turned into a woman\'s body lying down with breasts as mountains and the running river at the bottom of the \"mountains\" as a vagina. I guess I need a date (haa)!

  5. Sorry, thought I was making a comment on this odd thing I doodled.\r\n\r\nLisa is very talented with a great imagination and there is so much emotion behind her work. I always like when she shows up. Great Lisa.
