Featured Doodle Artist

Hello, my name is Ted McGrath,
and I am a doodle addict.

 
Q: I know this is a weird way to start an interview, but what's in your pockets right now?



 
Q: Where are you from?



 
Q: What is your day job? Night job? (If they are different)









 
Q: If you didn't do what you do, what would you be doing?





 
Q: How often do you draw?





 
Q: You have a lot of handwritten type in your work. Do you have a favorite way of drawing letters and words?





 
Q: What does your workspace look like?









 
Q: Read any good books/magazines lately?



 
Q: What does the future look like for you?



 
Q: Any last words? Advice? Warnings?

Ted McGrath
You know him for his somewhat unpolished illustrations. You know him for his distinctly imperfect line work. You know him for his frantic collages and curious humor. You know him for being a bit of a mess.

You know him for being inspiring.

Ted McGrath doodles for some big names and now he’s doodling just for us! For his feature, we tried something new and fun. We interviewed him by asking a few simple questions and he answered in true Ted form – doodles only.

Ted was also kind enough to send us an exclusive set of scans from his sketchbook, 29 of them to be exact. Did your jaw just drop? Ours did. Take a look around, click on it all, there’s no shortage of scribbles or scraps of tape around here.
