Caffeinated Constellations

Cecilia Levy stains the inside of her books with coffee and then adds delicate lines with a fine liner pen to create these simple and beautiful patterns. I'd easily frame any one of these to hang on the studio wall.

A Lovely Collection of Thoughts

Have you seen Andrea Wan's Mini Journal? well, if you haven't, I have to tell you it is a must in your next inspiration search. She made a mini journal containing a collection of 4"x6" drawings inspired in thoughts and ideas of her own. Her project is full of creepy and adorable images. One of the best sketchbooks I've seen lately. It is a beautiful project made to be seen and enjoyed page by page.

In a Sea of Sketchbooks

If you like to sketch and you don't already know the work of the wonderfully talented Lapin, then you best start getting familiar with him. He's a force to be reckon with. The above photo was taken while standing on a ladder and conveys (more or less) every drawn sketchbook of his.

Simply, WOW. This deserves to be faved, tumbled and ffffound by every member of DA. You can follow him on blogspot.

Related: Lapin was our 7th featured artist and has also done up one of our favorite doodle addict t-shirts.

The Future is Drawn

Lee Sankey, may I be blunt? Your science fiction sketches are freaking bad ass. The countless lines that fill every bit of the page. Vehicles that defy gravity and our common sense. Dystopian cities ruled by a merciless ruler. Gadgets that ignite our senses. Stories told behind dizzyingly-tall buildings…

This is all making my brain spasm, and to think you doodled these while on the phone as a call centre agent is simply mind boggling.

Ridiculous Skill

I know sketchbooks, I obsess over them. And every once in a while I run into one that deserves its insides to be printed, framed and put in front of your eyes. Every single spread in José Azevado's sketchbook is colored and drawn with such intensity, it's as if his markers and pens are on steroids, two Red Bulls, and one delicious Cherry Starburst for good measure.

Giveaway: Drawn In by Julia Rothman

If I were to envision Doodlers Anonymous as a published book, it would look damn close to the one I am about to give away.

Julia Rothman is an illustrator and pattern designer who runs the popular blog Book By Its Cover, which features a different art-related book every weekday. We've been fans of the site since day one and especially love the weekly sketchbook series.

Her latest book, Drawn In, is a peek into the inspiring sketchbooks of 44 fine artists, illustrators, graphic designers, and cartoonists. It's an incredible read, filled with insightful q&a and beautiful full-color photographs of sketchbook pages that were quite possibly never meant to be seen.

We are fans not only of the content, but because it features some of our favorite artists. Of the 44, at least 10 have been featured on Doodlers Anonymous, including the amazing Ted McGrath.

Friends of DA, we are giving this great book away. To be in the running, just leave a comment with the title of a book you bought because of its cover. We'll pick a winner from the hat. Comments close June 15th (Wednesday) at 2pm Eastern. Good luck everyone;...and for those of you that can't wait, get your hands on the book today. It deserves to be on your coffee table.

And the winner is: Robyn Wells. Congrats!

Freedom of Mind

I've been following Craig Atkinson's work for as long as I can remember, and yet for some reason I never posted about him on DA. I only realized it this morning when I was catching up with his work on flickr.

Craig draws from the U.K. and he draws a lot. When he's not drawing, he's printing and shipping short-run art publications from the small publishing house he started back in 2005, called Café Royal Books.

Craig sums up sketchbooks perfectly, "…I find sketchbooks a great way to free up from over-considered ideas, and a great way to counteract the exact requirements an art director might have when working commercially." If you have the time, you can flip through his sketchbooks for hours of inspiration and improvised narratives. If you don't, take a look below at some of my favorite pages.
