We're All In This Together

Process is everything to me. It's much of the reason why I started Doodlers Anonymous. I love seeing behind the scenes and early thoughts of artists, writers, any creative for that matter. Getting a glimpse of sketchbook pages no one was meant to see, or storyboards that show development of what worked or didn't work is many times more inspiring than the final outcome.

Three Legged Legs has done an incredible job of documenting their collaboration with Droga5 to bring to life an animated ad spot for Method Cleaners and Virgin America. The spot itself is a minute-long animated ride in the sky with illustrated characters and exaggerated stereotypes. Their process of going "…from a super quick shitty thumbnail doodle-fest, to a more elaborate After Effects animatic," is so wonderful to see come to life, and you'll love the end result.

Here are some of the process doodles, but make sure to watch the rough cut animation and more at their site.

He Thinks A Lot



A sad film about Gregor by Petra Zlonoga. I think it's perfectly drawn and executed for her first hand-drawn film. I especially like the squiggly lines that turn to thoughts, pets, and even green cars.

Viliam



This is an amazing animation created by Veronika Obertova. In her own words, this is "a story of Viliam, who lives his own animated life within the real world. Childish fun turns into a problem, the problem becomes a solution. No solution is perfect though. "

Wonderfully heartfelt, I personally think we all have a bit of Viliam in us - that slight antisocial charm, that need to always have a pencil in hand, that ability to be content with life the way you see fit...Simply put, you'll love watching this.

The Death of Wormboy



Of all the submissions we received for the coloring book, Conor Finnegan's "bird jogging in sneakers" (second spread) was the first to get our vote of approval. And now he writes in to tell me that he's brought a few of his doodles to life, in a self-made, short animated film created in his spare time and some fooling around with the Adobe After Effects puppet pin tool.

No doubt, my favorite part of the video is the sound and expression of despair from the little worm. Thanks for the smile Conor, keep the fun going.

To My Fellow Doodlers


Here is a great little music video by Archive, the song is called System. I really love all the scribbling and the sassy choreography. Enjoy!

Hi Friends-
I am so so honored and excited to share things with you for the next month. DA has been such a huge source of inspiration to me and I just want to give a shout out to my boy OKAT, thank you so much for this amazing opportunity. I really love DA and all of the great artists that I have been exposed to, inspired by and in awe of since DA's conception.

Doodling has always been such an integral part of my life, in fact I don't know what I would do or where I would be today without it. I can remember countless classes in grade school where I would sit and attempt to take really good notes, but then low and behold the words and letters would slowly trickle and meander off into a wild ferocious sea of psychedelic doodles.

Smooth


We apologize for the lack of updates this week. We have been immersed in Art Basel goodness.

For now, immerse yourself in this video. It makes absolutely no sense. Lots of morphing of creepy creatures and shapes and colors. The visuals are crazy cool and that pretty much gets the job done for me right now. (Drawings and music by Chad Vangaalen)

Mystery Man

Walter Robot Studios are the folks behind the new Gnarls Barkley video for "Mystery Man". It's a must see. The video has so much depth. Layers upon layers of drawings that build cities, bicycles, buses and flying super heroes. Go along for the ride.
