Magical Doodle Vines

Like a song I could listen to over and over, I’m stuck watching Pinot’s vines on repeat. This Indonesian artist’s channel is full of speedy process videos that are are an absolute delight to watch. It’s more than just watching him draw, though. Pinot always starts from scratch, beginning with a blank paper and telling fun visual stories along the way. Many incorporate elements from the world around the paper, making doodles that literally come off the page. It's amazing to think of how challenging it must be to not only draw and record these concepts, but to have only a few seconds to execute them. Each one is like watching a magic illusion unfolding before your very eyes!

Strangers Drawing Strangers

You walk into a place and someone takes a Polaroid of you. You write down your name, your Instagram handle, and your hidden talent down on a card. Then you pick an envelope out of a drawer and inside it is a Polaroid of a stranger along with the same card you filled out, but with their information. Polaroid in hand, you head to an art table fully stocked with everything you could need—markers, pencils, crayons, scissors—and you start drawing the stranger. When you finish up, your art and the polaroid are displayed together on a wall amongst dozens of other portraits. Eventually, you will come back and see that someone else has drawn you and placed your potrtait in the gallery.

This was the basis of "Strangers Drawing Strangers," an interactive art installation held by Airbnb and Ivan Cash. The idea sprung from another project by Cash called "Selfless Portraits", in which he invites strangers from around the world to draw each other’s facebook profile pictures and exchange them online.

In the video you see art ranging from childish drawings in crayon (drawn by an actual toddler) to beautifully detailed illustrations by practiced artists. I love the ones that added extra flourishes to their portraits, little details that weren’t in the polaroid such as putting the person in a funny pose or adding in a prop (like the guy with the microphone). If you’ve ever been to a big film festival you know how hectic the schedule is, with non-stop screenings and events being held at the same time across many locations. The fact that the event took place at this year’s Sundance Film Festival gives a special connotation to the portraits because it adds the implication that a stranger paused what they were doing, possibly re-arranged their schedule a bit, just so they could take the time to draw you.

Doodles Save This News Anchor's Live Weather Forecast

A weather reporter from ABC News 4 was attempting to deliver his daily update on live TV when the computer that animates the forecast froze up. After a few minutes of small talk, the anchor team quickly doodled up a few weather icons and then throw them up onto the green screen behind him. It's a great example of improvising on live TV.

Collaboration in Perfect Harmony

I cannot remember when or how I came across this video but I absolutely love it. I find myself coming back to watch it again and again. I have found in my own personal experience, that collaboration with other artists either works great or is a disaster. These two artists Supakitch and Koralie really pull it off flawlessly. Their work harmonizes beautifully. Everything about this video from the music for the way it is shot are perfect. The colors and the flow of the work is amazing. Such a great pairing of style.

Journey of a Tiny Explorer

Umbra is a hand drawn animation, a mix of drawing and pastel, that I came across about a year ago. It is still one of my favorites. Simple drawings with such a huge impact. The animation conveys such great emotion. I must have watched this a million times. I have a little folder in my bookmarks for links to watch when feeling a little in the dumps creatively. This video is at the top of the list. I hope you love it as much as I do.

The Beautiful Creative Process
of David Engzell

Watch this video of David Engzell's process of creating. It will make you want to race home and draw over the largest sheet of anything that you can find. I've watched this in loop over nine times now. You should too.
