Featured: Jolby

Bert and Ernie. Batman and Robin. Cheech and Chong. Josh and Colby.

Collaborative teams must be able to compliment one another. And who does that better than Josh Kenyon and Colby Nichols? We here at DA love collaborations and are big fans of Jolby. These guys may very well be sharing the same brain - filled with patterns, textures and nonsense.

So how do they do it? For their feature, they agreed to document an entire week of Jolby. Here is an exclusive look at their amazing work, a whole lotta doodles and some moustache humor thrown in just for good measure.

Feature #17: A Week with Jolby »

Featured: 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.

Featured: David Fullarton

They say that sometimes an image is just an image, that it takes a mind to make it more. Thank goodness for the mind of David Fullarton.

With an abundance of textures, words and scribbles, David tells stories. And you can count on his stories to always be outlandish, to always make you think, "How the hell did he come up with that?" That is precisely what I asked him to explain for his feature. In his work, he pokes fun at the mundane and the shortcomings of human character. For that, we love him.

These days, David is keeping busy prepairing for his upcoming art show at Hang Art in San Francisco. It's appropriately titled "Once Again I Fail To Live Up To My Advance Publicity" and opens on April 2nd. If I were you, I'd run over there. A little offbeat humor is good for your lungs.

For his feature, David sent us over 9 never before seen pieces (until now) as an advance peak into his art show. Enjoy this and the thoughts inside of his head, in his own words.

Featured: Simon Mills

I created Doodlers Anonymous for people like Simon Mills. He is the exact definition of a doodle addict. He cares nothing about the canvas, only that he has some kind of tool to draw with, a stick, ink, brush, anything that can leave a mark.

Simon exhibits his art mainly around the Bristol area and under the name boredmonkeylove design. When looking at his doodles, you get lost in the journey of his lines and that too, is how he works. "The ability to hold a pen, move it this way and that and see where it takes me... I find too much thought is the enemy."

Simon's feature is inspiring and I'm still captivated by the 14 original pieces he's drawn for Doodlers Anonymous, each representing his spontaneous style and love for working on discarded materials - cardboard, wood, furniture. He makes use of them all.

Featured: camiki

Upon first glance, I immediately fell for camiki's doodles. They seem to be crafted with hardly any effort or thought, just improvised. Yet, everything in her art comes together just right, from the colors to the flow. They are fun and harmless drawings that deserve your attention, and to our delight, she's created 8 exclusive iPhone wallpapers that you can download and use to your heart's content.

Featured: Tommaso Meli

Tommaso's work is outrageous and full of majestic concepts, detail and textures. He likes to go by the name “pariah”, a term for anyone considered an outcast, isolated, or different by others -- which is an excellent metaphor for his style.

His feature on DA is a mix between pics of sketches or "in progress" work with a collection of past doodles and drawings. Have a look at what happens when his mind spills onto paper.

Featured: Gabi Campanario


I was first introduced to Gabi's work on the Urban Sketchers site that he founded. You might remember as I blogged about it a fews days ago. His work draws you in to his daily life with captured moments and annotated notes.

Gabi is a spanish artist living in Seattle and if you look at his work, you'd think he's drawn every nook and cranny of The Emerald City. Above is a 3-minute video flip through his Moleskine, but for his feature, I've hand-picked 13 drawings from his Seattle sketchbook. Now go enjoy our 11th featured artist.
