Layers of Doodles

The sketchbook of Stuart Adams is a wild ride. He draws in layers, which makes each page take a while to soak in while my eyes constantly find new visual details hidden underneath the doodled characters. Some of his backgrounds are unexpected textures, photographs, or a chaotic melange of colors which gives a certain depth to otherwise silly-looking doodles. My favorite thing Adams does is use white space to draw characters within the background, and then doodle more characters over those in black. The end product is crowded, messy, and full of spontaneous spirit. I see where Adams was coming from when he said, “The best way to describe my artwork is that it is like taking a mystery tour bus where Disney Land fuses into a Heironymous Bosch painting.”

Funny Doodles That Never Fall Flat

Simple black and white doodles with a twist... or should I say a fold? HuskMitNavn is an artist from Copenhagen who draws in three dimensions. His black and white characters have a comical and nostalgic style, reminiscent of those old-timey cartoons we all used to watch. What takes them to next the level is the way the artist folds, rolls, and tears the paper in many different directions to create a scene. The simplicity of these doodles infuses them with a playful energy that takes me back to the days in my childhood when I could amuse myself by making toys from nothing but paper and a pencil—dolls, planes, telescopes, whatever I happened to accidentally sculpt a sheet into! It’s a good source of inspiration for doodlers who want to start thinking outside of the box.

People Paper Shapes



I recently participated in a collage contest, and at times felt like I was all thumbs while trying to cut out tiny slivers of paper at just the right size. In her piece Citypass Jerusalem, Iris Kost has mastered the technique of embracing the non-perfection that comes with the process of cut-out paper shapes, all the while making it look whimsical, simple, and adorable. Her characters all have such expression and uniqueness, and I love the bright color palette. Iris makes the experience of riding the train into a lovely, pleasant one, one where you just might meet someone as interesting and creative as Iris.

Iris Kost does more than paper art – check out her website and Flickr!

A Drawing Desk Like No Other

As a parent of two little doodlers and a daily drawer myself, I can't help but fall in love with this Kickstarter project by The Cardboard Guys. They've taken everything great about fostering creativity in a kid and magically created a drawing desk and chair made of cardboard, that's fun to build, functional to use, and best of all designed to be doodled all over. The top of the desk even comes with cubbies to store all your art supplies and built to close away when not in use.

No joke, I want one for myself. They've only got 8 days left to meet their Kickstarter goal. Support them (before it's too late) and little ones will rejoice everywhere.

Tumblr of the Week: Miss Wearer's Rainbow POP Sketchbooks

When I was in elementary school, I had a sticker problem. I was addicted to buying rolls and packs of them and creating crazy colorful and hectic sticker collages. Seeing Miss Wearer's art brought these memories rushing back, because cotton candy rainbows and cutesy smiling creatures were exactly the kind of thing I couldn't get enough of. Her pop art is overloaded with retro palettes of bright colors that look so good you could eat them (it helps that a lot of her doodles seem to be dripping with ice cream fudge). It's no wonder her blog says "Draw what makes you smile." Miss Wearer's sharpie madness is gushing with playful sweetness and leaves you with a feel-good vibe that doesn't shake off.

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!

From Doodle to Shoe!

As someone who draws in his sketchbook every single day, it's incredibly satisfying when an opportunity presents itself to bring those doodles to life. A little over a year ago I drew up some geometric shapes, turned them into a vector pattern, and submitted them to Bucketfeet (along with many other artists) for consideration into their Spring 2015 collection.

Bucketfeet is a brand that makes beautifully illustrated artist designed canvas shoes. They support artists from around the world, and I'm thrilled to announce that they've selected my "Asteroids" design for their catalog. It's now available for sale on their website and comes in two versions: laces or slip-on. They've also been kind enough to extend an awesome 20% discount (for my shoes or any other pair in their shop) to all Doodlers Anonymous fans, just use discount code OKAT20 at checkout.

You can become an artist for them as well. They are always looking for the next cool design, just follow this link to join the Bucketfeet Artist Network and get the process started.
