Character Studies

His new girlfriend loves wallpapers. And she told him that her last boyfriend did not even care. He has therefore set up a small workshop in the attic of his house. There he began to print floral wallpapers on his own - he wants to impress her. 

It's human nature to pay close attention to pictures and skip over text, but it feels incomplete to post these drawings without the description the artist writes for them. The endearingly quirky individuals are drawn by IVK Daily, an artist from Berlin who cares deeply about people’s private peculiarities. The rich inner life implied in these portraits makes me wonder if they are fictional characters with dreamt up oddities or examples pulled from real people the artist knows.

The black and white pictures are charismatic enough on their own to keep me captivated with the meticulous details in backgrounds and textures. I would still be asking myself burning questions about what their story could be, so it was a real treat for me to find that the artist includes a little teaser text about the subjects of their doodles. Just a little bit of info, but not too much—so I can still enjoy the strangeness and charm of these personal snapshots. I very VERY strongly suggest visiting ivkdaily’s blog and reading along, because the caption is half the story.

Coloring Book Interview Series, #10: Amelia Grace

One of the best parts of our coloring book experience (besides the coloring) is finding new artists on every page that I might never have come across otherwise. Amelia Grace is the first artist from our newest Coloring Book (Volume 4), that I jumped to contact after I saw her page. Read the interview to find out about her spunky and fantastical troupe of characters!

Tumblr of the Week: Juliana Vomero

A wild deer-girl appears! She crossed my path today while I was browsing our followers on DA's tumblr and landed on the blog of Juliana Vomero. I instantly loved the way Juliana's drawings are unconstrained - you see them in sketchbooks on desks, on kitchen cutting boards, on the walls inside, on the walls outside! Something mysterious about it are the repeated images of the same character. There is little information given about Juliana or her art, which leaves me wondering what this pin-up deer-girl means to her.

Tumblr of the Week: DERIK

How excited would you be if you were out for a walk and came across these guys eying you through a window? My favorite thing about these vibrant characters is how they bring life and humor to the otherwise colorless places they are found in. It's fun to see artists getting creative with the environment beyond their pens and paper. I'm lucky that DERIK happens to follow the DA tumblr so that I could have the chance to stumble onto his blog. Street artists like him make the world a more magical place full of colorful surprises around unexpected corners!

Personal Space, What's That?

I love it when I discover cool stuff like this shared by fellow doodlers on the DA flickr group. This doodler does not waste paper. I feel like monocat's sketches really capture the spirit of spontaneous doodles as almost every inch of the page has something crammed into it.

Even though it may look like a mishmash of unrelated doodles, there's a cool chemistry between the colorful characters as they seem to be reacting to one another and their predicament of being squeezed together and having someone else intrude on their personal space. Enjoy them, I did.

The Cute Creeps

Can't help loving the work of illustrator/artist Michael Sieben. His work ranges from commercial illustration, skateboard decks, posters and fine art. What's really stands out is his ability to create creepy yet cute characters. Almost an alternate reality that views life through a fun house mirror. Even when things get weird there is so much charm in the work that you can't help falling in love with the world.

Extraordinary Illustrations on Ordinary Objects

We know these aren't exactly doodles, but the illustrated sculptures of French artist Gilbert Legrand are too fun not to share. He has been working in Toulouse for 20 whole years, dividing his time between designing characters and book covers, and using everyday household objects as the canvas for his illustrations. Legrand takes ordinary junk and transforms it into extraordinary characters by using a wide array of different materials like wire, wood, paint, and nails to defy your expectations. It takes an impressive imagination to look at stuff you use on a daily basis and still manage to draw some fresh, exciting inspiration from it. I stared at the above mouse for a while, so absorbed by the character illustrated that it took me a while to even figure out it was drawn on a hanger.

Many of his sculptures have a poetic, humorous twist to them, like the waiter made from a corkscrew who is carrying a bottle of wine on his tray or the lovers embracing on scissors. I had a lot of fun scrolling through his work and appreciating the way he can transform the most mundane objects into unexpected sources of delight.
