Hungry Artist Will Letter for Lunch

Drawing and eating are two of Lauren Hom's favorite things. Her motto of "Work hard, snack often" gets put to good use with her Will Letter for Lunch project. Lauren noticed how commonly chalkboard menus are drawn up by restaurant staff with no pizazz, and she couldn't help thinking she could do it better herself. So she did!

She does not have any set prices for her work and never gets paid money for her hand-drawn lettering. The twist is her quirky stipulation that any food she writes about must be served to her. On her site she describes what she lettered and what she lunched at the restaurants she visits. Her eating adventures range from humble snacks (for the "Mayo Party" sign you can see beneath the fold she was paid in a taste sample of every mayonnaise in the restaurant and also got to take two jars home with her) to epic feasts for a queen (for writing the entire menu in the photo above she got 7 plates of food + cocktails and wine).

Doodle My Ride





Quick, to the Doodlemobile! It all started when Allison improvised a creative way to cover up some scratches on her boyfriend's car, which he didnít mind because he was making plans to repaint it anyway. She got a little carried away and kept doodling beyond the scratches, until she had sharpied the entire bumper in one night. Needless to say, the repainting plans got trashed and the car became Allison's new canvas. About 100 hours of frenzied doodling later, they now have the most eye-catching car Iíve seen in a long time.

Bonus! Click after the fold to see a time-lapse video of Allison at work, including funny peeks at what she does during her breaks from doodling.

Tumblr of the Week: Making a Mess

The gem I found while browsing our tumblr followers this week is the blog of Gavin Ashworth, a student in New Zealand. His messy collaged doodles are made on found paper (some sheets look like school papers), sometimes incorporating unexpected materials like wood and melted plastic. It's a dirty, damaged mishmash that looks disgusting and awesome at the same time.

If you're addicted to tumbling as well as doodling, follow Doodlers Anonymous on Tumblr for even more daily inspiration. You might even see yourself on there!

Doodles in Incredible Stop-Motion





What can you do in 15 seconds? Rachel Ryle is able to create miniature stop motion masterpieces that are so dainty and so irresistible. I watched and re-watched, and like a magic act, I'm dying to know how she pulls this off, but at the same time just enjoy relishing in the wonder and gaiety of her art. She's able to articulate the joy in life's simple pleasures, from warm fall cider to traveling to bubble gum, in the most delicate, painstakingly-detailed and creative way.

Doodles Inspired by Lyrics



Do you ever get so into a song that you begin to visualize it? These sketchbooks are an intense mix of music, writing, and drawing all coming together to make something awesome. The artist is CaliDoso, a self-described quote freak whose imagination catches fire when the right words at the right time click into place.

Bold Shapes That Demand Your Attention



There's so much to like about the black and white spreads in Tyler Keeton Robbins's sketchbook. It's like having monochromatic dreams of symbols and patterns. His stark palette, gradients, archetypes, and organic shapes are intended to play in our collective unconscious. "Drawing, painting, or creating anything with impatient urgency," Tyler writes, "allows ideas to evolve before they're corrupted by reason."

Beyond the psychology, his sketchbook art is just plain stunning. I'm mesmerized by how he's created meaning and intricacy and depth with extreme limitation of color, shape, and space. You want to check this out.

Designy Hand-drawn Coffee Cups



I found something great this morning while browsing Instagram's main feed: An artist who uses blank white coffee cups as his canvas. He cleverly uses the cups to draw labels for fake coffee branches, like a futuresque Cafe Nebula that I can imagine the Jetsons visiting or the Godot Cafe, where you can have a coffee while you wait. Much of Illarion Gordonís #fakecoffeebranding has gloomy undertones, a darkly funny subversion of overly-optimistic branding. Follow @luftaffe on Instagram and have fun imagining what your drink from his imaginary coffee shops would taste like.

Also, we've highlighted plenty of coffee-related art on Doodlers Anonymous in the past. Check them out to keep your caffeine buzz going.
