Tumblr of the Week: Dirty Library



The drawing team of Mary and Peter are turning our favorite childhood books into sexed up parodies, by re-imagining the illustrated covers of classics, from Dr. Seuss to Shel Silverstein. Visit Dirty Library and I'm certain your bedtime stories will never be the same.

Over 34,000 Doodles Live On Our
DA Flickr Group!





I'm absolutely awe-struck by the sheer size of the Doodlers Anonymous group that lives on Flickr. Launched in November 2008, the group now houses over 34,000 drawings, doodles, sketches, scribbles, paintings and so much more.

It's a treasure of inspiration.

We do our best to consistently moderate the group and dig around for awesome finds. Images above by Jeannine Ortiz, Mary Ruth Patchin, Maura Cluthe and below are some more favorites. If you're a friend of DA, you'd be crazy not to join the group… You simply never know when you might just find your art featured here on the blog.

Eyewitness to Space:
Over 1,500 drawings chronicling the American Space Program

I made a styrofoam solar system in 4th grade; I've seen Star Wars. But, it wasn’t until a recent visit to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center that I gave the final frontier much thought.

I meandered through the rocket garden, the Hubble telescope display, and the recreated control room of the ‘50s with its ashtrays and white-collared men calculating in a room of blinking lights. I saw the Falcon 9 launch light up the dark sky en route to the International Space Station. And the elusive concept of space began to take hold. I imagined and contemplated.



And since that visit, I force myself to realize that even on sunny days, irrespective of warm blues and greens, we are floating in silent blackness. These images are part of the Smithsonian’s immense collection of drawings, paintings, and prints chronicling the American space program. Enjoy them, for they, and all our accomplishments, truly are far out!

The Píccolo Print Project

We've just got word that our lovely friend Sara Barnes (of Brown Paper Bag) and cohort Lisa Perrin teamed up on a new venture, named Píccolo, a collaborative illustration project dedicated to the small things.

To get it off the ground, they've launched a Kickstarter campaign that could use your support to reach its goal, and in return, you get one print (or all four) commissioned for their first project, by the illustrated talents of Yelena Bryksenkova, Michael C. Hsiung, Philipp Dornbierer and Paige Vickers.

In fact, I'll let them tell you all about it, watch the cute, stop-motion video below and then click on over to Kickstarter to help make this project a reality.

Happiness is...

Thirteen artists tackle the illustration challenge of defining happiness. Every day for a year, a new definition will be drawn and uploaded to Felicidário. We're only on the eigth day of 2013 and I'm already in love with the submissions. Let me know what happiness means to you in the comments.

Superfantastic Animated GIFs



Ryan Todd has put together a cheery collection of animated GIFs for the holiday season. The complete showcase features submissions by illustrators, animators, and directors everywhere, and can be found online at christmasgifs.org.

If you know a thing or two about looping frames and have a love for the ho-ho-holidays, lucky for you, he's taking submissions, but he warns it better be good ;)

One More Time, for the Cheap Seats
in the Back

Every weekend Joe List peppers his copy of the Guardian newspaper with cute, slimy, dorky creatures. He gives a face to every faceless object, and ensures that cranky dinosaurs in tiny bowler hats are given their front-page glory! With online news becoming the norm now, he might not have much longer to get these creatures down on actual newsprint, so we best make the most of it while we can, right?

Confession. We've actually mentioned Joe before. OKAT featured The Annotated Weekender on DA in 2009 (yep, that long ago...) but since you probably don't have the spare-time or the breathing apparatus to dive that deep into our archives, here it is again. There's over FOUR YEARS of new content for you to catch up on and giggle at.

Here are a few of my favourites. This was not an easy cull to make!
