Doodle on Cotton

For far too long, my to-do list looked something like this:

1. Something important
2. Something else fairly important
3. Something I didn't finish yesterday
4. Doodle on my DA shirt

I can finally take that bottom task off of my list.

It was a few hours of mindless fun and somewhat therapeutic and I encourage you all to take some time off (because we all need it) to do the same. My tools of choice? A black marker, a needle and some red thread.

We love the submissions we've gotten so far and also love how your individual styles and personalities come through in each t-shirt. We look forward to seeing more of them and sharing them with all of you.

A Bag of Cats

“Time spent with cats is never wasted.” Sigmund Freud once quoted. And I think he’s absolutely right! My two felines are my pride and joy.

A while ago over a morning of procrastination I made a little flickr cat gallery and I never get tired of revisiting it again and again… As they say: cats are magical creatures, the more you pet them, the longer you’ll both live…

Here’s a little selection of cat drawings I found this evening.

Zines / A Labour of Love

There's something quite special about zines, don’t you think?! These little booklets are usually hand made, low tech and mostly produced in small runs by the artists themselves. As a zinester myself, I really appreciate the close insight a zine can give in terms of an artist's perspective and ways of thinking/working. I view them mostly as a labour of love.

Last Saturday I had a fabulous time at the London Zine Symposium, (see my brief review and lots of pictures here) and whilst there I managed to snap up a few great zines for my ever growing collection. Yes, they're an addictive thing to collect as they come in all sizes, styles, subjects, mediums, formats, monochrome, colour, etc.

So I thought I'd share some images of my zine library and compile for you DA readers exclusively a little list of my current top 7 favorites – why seven? Well, because it's my favorite number!

Name That Trend, Pt. I

I swear I've seen this technique everywhere. I call it sludge. Can you doodle another current trend? If so, send your jpeg to:

The Travel Sketchbook

The sketchbook has always been a really amazing way for me to capture a journey. Seeing the world through the eyes of a sketchbook really gives me a sense of an era, and when I look back at them, I really remember each scrap or pen mark from that trip. These are a peek into some of my travel sketchbooks in Cartagena, Colombia, and another one from The Puget Sound, off the Washington Coast. Both of these books really make me nostalgic for these particular places, because I studied the landscapes, painted the faces, and drew my way through them. They really made a dent in my memory because I will always have that connection with these lovely places which I highly recommend visiting and taking your sketchbook with you when you have a chance. Look inside the books »

Work in Progress

Here are some pics taken at the Work in Progress show in Central Saint Martins MA Textiles Futures. These are a glimpse of an idea for wall coverings that are inspired by pages blown up from sketchbooks and spontaneous doodling and Traditional Lace. They are very much still a work in progress but I thought I would share them with you anyways. See more »

Colorific

We have always wanted to create a coloring book that is one-of-a-kind. We did it and showcased it for the first time in Miami's first annual Family Day in the Design District.

December 12 fell on a Saturday. The Miami sky was filled with grey clouds and it was exceptionally windy. As we set up our tables, chalkboard and blown-up illustrations - papers flew, chalkboards fell over and the rain began to fall. All signs pointed to a frantic kind of day.

But moms, dads and their mini mes showed and as the sun peaked through the clouds, the crowd grew.

It was four hours of kids drawing and scribbling everywhere. There were many moments where I stood back and stared with amazement at the eager kids and colors scattered all over the floor.

Here are some pictures of the event. We look forward to a DA Coloring Book, Volume 2.
