Malisa Suchanya’s Black and White Pencil Portraits

graphite portrait

My small obsession this week is Malisa Suchanya's series of graphite portraits. Its cast of lovely ladies is diverse and expressive... plus, there's a handful of familiar faces in there. Suchanya says that she remains a lover for traditional art in a technological age, and her artwork proves it. When I first found her portraits, I had a hard time tearing my eyes away from all the immense graphite detail woven into the perfect textures for skin, hair, clothes, etc. She pays meticulously close attention to fine details, creating a super cool contrast between realistic faces and their more stylized surroundings. She sometimes posts progress photos on her Tumblr, so make sure to check that out too!

Funny, Inventive Doodles of an Investment Banker

matches skeleton bird doodle

Saeed Attari is a 36 year old investment banker from Bahrain and married with two children. Seems like a serious guy, but we know that doodle addicts come from all walks of life. In fact, Attari’s doodle muse is an imaginary pet named iBird! His doodles of iBird’s shenanigans are always interactive, incorporating mundane objects and contextualizing them into something exciting. These doodles look as simple as can be, but the ideas behind them pack a good punchline. Whether it’s food, phones, or his children’s toys, it seems like Attari can’t look at anything around his house without imagining what kind of trouble iBird would get into with it. It takes a good sense of humor to look at ordinary stuff lying around you on a daily basis and find a fresh way to have fun with it! Follow @ibird_art on instagram to keep an eye on iBird’s mischief.

Beauty in the Unfinished

There’s something appealing about seeing the skeleton of a drawing, the bare bones version before it has been perfected. It looks like Marjolein Caljouw knows this, because she often takes photographs of her works in process and shows them side-by-side with the completed illustration. With pencil, ink, and paint, she depicts the female body in all its mystery and sensuality. The soft, organic features are charged with human intimacy that is easily palpable even in the rough sketches.

Ink Flowers Blossom Inside Old Books

antique floral doodle

One of my childhood friends always treated books in an oddly strict way. She would click her tongue and say, “You shouldn’t do that,” when she would see me dog ear pages, scribble notes in the margins, or even use a highlighter on a textbook. Actually, she still does. I think even someone as protective of books as her would admit that Emilie Ely’s floral sketches are a thing of beauty. @helloimemilie’s instagram is a romantic’s dream. Her gentle, intricate doodles find their way onto a myriad of objects, such as tables and leaves, covering them with the artist’s antique charm. My favorite are her old books, whose aged and worn pages flourish anew with elaborate blossoms. With elegant softness, her pen gives life and beauty to something old and tarnished.

Retro Sketchbook

So many eyes! I’m looking into a sketchbook and it is staring right back at me. Its pages are filled with Silvia Asunis’ exciting style that comes across to me as a lovechild of retro cartoons and classic tattoo art. Most of the sketches are only slightly longer than her pen, but every crisp line pops with attitude. The petite sizes and cutesy colors give a lighthearted edge to features that are sometimes downright gruesome. See more of Silvia’s work on her Tumblr! You will wish you also had four extra eyes to drink it all in.

Sketchy Fairytale Illustrations

black and white fairytale sketch

Like following a white rabbit, Kat Philbin’s drawings are leading me on a fairytale adventure. The story is not one that is read, but felt. No words are needed to keep me interested in the journey of a luminescent protagonist, glowing with innocence in contrast against the shadowy forest enveloping her. What she comes across in the forest could be ominous or gentle, but always something magical. Careful shading with fine lines holds the art together, creating the artist’s signature style of delicate children’s illustrations imbued with a foreboding tone.

Doodles from the Dead

"I will probably doodle on the inside of my coffin."

That sums up the whole DA spirit, doesn’t it? When I stumbled across Operation Underwear’s blog and read that blurb, I knew I had found an artist I would need to write about. With Halloween approaching, there is no better time than now to meet his many merry monsters who are as wildly colorful as they are creepy. Alvaro Diaz-Rubio plays with character designs that spunky and spooky at the same time. The expressions in his doodles are always intense, too. Even in crowded group photos, no two creatures have the same face.
