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.

Heads Will Roll



I'm really enjoying the folksy art coming from Emmanuel Gutiérrez (aka EMMGUT) out of Costa Rica. His style feels familiar yet unique. I love how simple the drawings present in just black ink and then how they completely pop off the page when he adds the color and shading. His instagram feed is chock full of good stuff.

Tumblr of the Week: Adventure Journal



Today's Tumblr of the Week hasn't updated in a while, but it has enough cool content on it to share anyway. It's the adventure journal of Kailey, who tried to combat her shoddy memory span by drawing the events of her life every day. I love that it's really just a diary detailing what she did on a daily basis sprinkled with illustrative doodles. Some days there's only a few lines about how she feels and one thing she did. Others go into longer detail about all her activities and what specific drinks or food she had, to the point where the text has to squish itself around the drawings.

It's endearing to read all the little details that she decided were important enough to draw down so that she could remember it years later, like drinking hot chocolate after getting yelled at by a bus driver.

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!

Tumblr of the Week: Hello Stranger



A good friend is someone who doesn't judge you, who always listens to you without making it about themselves, who you can simply sit in comfortable silence with… Perhaps these girls are onto something.

The tumblr we stumbled upon this week belongs to Korean artist Dan-ah Kim. Out of her expansive portfolio, one recurring subject that stood out to us were ladies in their undies with house plants. Because we only see the girls from behind, I get the slightly voyeuristic feeling that I have accidentally walked in on a private moment.

Inside the Sketchbook of Pat Perry



I've been following Pat Perry's work since 2010, when I posted a time-lapse video of him creating a beautiful layered painting over the course of a few weeks (you can watch it here).

Today I want to focus your attention on his sketchbooks. They are so intricate and detailed, it's really incredible how much goes into each spread. His drawings are so much more than just sketches of what may be in front of him, they are scenes that will capture your attention and seem to be alive, almost breathing with life. You can see plenty more over on his website: patperry.net

Kaleidoscope to the Sky



Saddo Jaddero’s art is what happens when rainbows and stardust have sex. His prismatic, galactic world makes me so happy. Tonight, I know I’ll dream in juicy color.

Most of the these images are from his "AS IF BY MAGIC" show back in 2010, but be sure to check out his recent work as well. Saddo is talented and prolific – producing an astonishing amount of work. Check out all the goodness on his Flickr.
