Owl is Love

Maybe it's sheer nostalgia for Tootsie Pop's wise Mr. Owl, but there's something so endearing and friendly about an illustrated owl. The real bird of prey, with its exorcist-head-swivel action, is admittedly kind of creepy; but for some reason, its drawn incarnations seem utterly playful and downright cordial. The above is courtesy of Kendra K.

Scroll though the extras for some more fun images, including my mom's vintage owl oven mitt, which I've lovingly confiscated.

Magna Doodle, I Love You

No joke, I enjoy my kids magna doodle toy more than they do. If it's anywhere near me, there's no doubt it will quickly end up in my hands for hours. It's the perfect doodle toy. You can't save, you can't undo and you can't even partly erase. There's no room for accuracy or moments of hesitation. In fact half the time the tied-up stylus hardly reaches all corners of the board.

And that's exactly what makes it so great. I scribbled the above a few days ago and then I found some other great examples on Flickr. Enjoy, and make sure to go buy yourself one (even if the pitter-patter of little feet don't fill your home).

Boxed In

Framed doodles make for amazing art on walls and I dare you to prove me wrong. I fucking double dare you.

The above "crappie table" is done by Barrie J. Davies.

Time Moves Faster

I have to apologize for the lack of updates on my part. When they say that NY moves fast, I had no idea they actually meant it. Work has been keeping me extra busy and I have also decided to go back to school at night. My love for DA, however, still runs deep, and to prove it, I have decided to share the pages of my sketchbook. I carry it in my purse at all times and it is slowly falling apart. But I am especially fond of this sketchbook because I have always wanted a red one (it's the little things that count).

The pages inside are a mix of brainstorming session notes, random thoughts, ripped scraps of paper and color. It's a little bit messy. It's a little bit playful. And I like to think that it's a little bit like its maker.

Heart Music Video Backdrop

So I spent my bank holiday Saturday with my good friend from olden days Mr. Ash Dando. He is a wonderfully talented art director who helped me to draw a massive heart thing for use as a backdrop on a colourama.

It only took us about 12 hours but we got there!
We are filming the video on Thursday for the new up and coming little artist SPARK.

Check out some of me pics of the work in progress.

Overwhelmed

Not everything is lost, but it sure does feel like it. July has been a very slow month for Doodlers Anonymous, the slowest of all the months since our humble beginnings almost two years ago.

We are going through a transition of sorts. Lots is happening, but nothing is happening at the same time. We are working on upgrading some elements of DA, while adding new sections as well. It's all in development right now. Nothing that you can see until launch, of course.

It's been a long time coming and completely devouring up all of my free time. What's worse is that it's stealing my energy from keeping the current site alive and well with fresh content. And as each day goes on, it gets even harder to fall back into the routine of maintaining the current. I feel kinda lost.

I'll say this much, though. It will be well worth the effort. For those of you that keep coming back, a big thank you. Everyday I find new links from blogs and illustrators alike linking to Doodlers Anonymous. It's beyond encouraging.

And so this post is an effort to get myself back into the swing of things, while also showing off some great doodles from our members. For this entry I simply searched the word "lost" within the Doodlers Anonymous flickr group and happily discovered this handful of goodies. Keep it going forever.

Words to Live By

I bought a large set of markers and I feel like a kid again because all I want to do is color things in. Seriously. I can't stop.

So in the spirit of our addiction to draw on anything and everything, here is some new work and words that I haven't been able to get out of my head until they've been put down on paper.
