Needles and Doodles (Noodles?!)

In case my Making Monsters entry didn't make it obvious, I'll say it: I'm really into seeing doodles come off the page. Sometimes doodling can be a gateway drug to other arty addictions. For example, Robin Amy Darling makes embroidery based on her doodles!

Robin says it's "time consuming, labour intensive and considered old fashioned, but extraordinary things can be achieved with a needle and thread." You can see proof that she's 100% right on her tumblr!

Alternate Doodle Universe



Usually sequels arenít as good as the first, but thatís SO not the case here. I wrote a post about Aug(de)mented Reality a few months ago and now itís back with a vengeance. I canít imagine what people think Marty Cooper (or Hombre_McSteez as he goes by online) is doing when they see him sitting in front of a stop sign, completely concentrated on it and holding up transparency sheets every so often. Itís so cool to see artists making doodles on the spot when inspiration from their surroundings hits them!

This is a compilation of animations he posted on instagram, so follow @Hombre_McSteez to keep up with his newest stuff.

Halloween Treat: Making Monsters

Chelsea Bloxsom makes monsters. Sheís like Frankenstein stitching together frightening creatures, except hers are a lot more neon. What I love about her is that she posts doodles of her monstrous ideas before she takes them to the sewing table. Colorful, mischievous, and just a little bit spooky - itís too fitting for an entry on Halloween. Visit her instagram or her website to see more of her creepy creations.

Blue Monday



If you're feeling blue this Monday afternoon, simply take a look at the wonderful drawings I discovered in Gosia Herba's sketchbook. A prolific illustrator and graphic designer from Wroclaw, Poland, Gosia makes creating these delightful abstract illustrations look so fun and easy. Visit his Behance portfolio for an endless amount of inspiration.

Did Thumbelina Make These Ridiculously Small Paintings?





No, Lorraine Loots did. I don't think you understand how small these are. Look at the tip of your pencil RIGHT NOW and think about how minuscule these brush strokes must be. What is this, a painting for ants? ActuallyÖ that's exactly what the artist named the series. On January 1, 2013, she challenged herself to create one miniature painting every single day of the year. That's 365 coin-sized drawings in extremely high detail and she doesn't even use a magnifying glass. My eyes hurt just thinking about it.

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.
