Rad Man Russell Etchen | Doodlers Anonymous

Russell Etchen is that big brother you never had that shows you cool things and makes you wonder how he grew that awesome beard. He's also really nice and a good hearted dude with a true love for art.

I'm a big fan of Russell's doodle work. His repetition of shapes and faces makes it clear these works are meditative and easy on the mind. Almost like a strange obsession, but a good one that brings a smile when you wonder what all those characters are thinking.

I've been lucky to do some drawing with Russell and I must admit, his technique has been mastered. There is no cut and paste in his work, each face drawn with intricate care and placement. ​ Just looking at his work makes me want to get doodling. Russell, let's set up some draw time soon!
