Sketchbook Pages to Get Lost In





I know nothing formal about Tanxuan, except that he's from Shenzhen, China and that he's got an incredible talent for drawing, with some of the most beautiful sketchbook pages I've ever laid my eyes on.

His Instagram is a constant feed of jaw dropping inspiration with drawings ranging from seductive women to odd foods to incredible overlapping cityscapes and the people within them.

Drawing the Cityscape in His Head



Bricks, windows, arches, curves, angles, roofs... you name it, if it's part of the city architecture, it's very likely Daniel Van Der Noon has drawn it.

Everything about his art inspires me. They are all hand-drawn and inked directly onto a wall, window, or canvas. No prior sketching or mapping. It's just one stroke here, another line there and soon enough buildings and rooftops appear.

In his own words, "I like to travel a lot, visit new cities, see new places, hear new noises. Through these skylines I guess that the perks that I experience from traveling around are amplified in ink, and the memories recorded in these ongoing sprawls of images and text."

You'll find plenty to like in the following images, and I guarantee you'll especially enjoy the process videos after the fold.

That's a lot of People

Alvaro and I are buddies. We work together from 9 to 5 (more like 10 to 7) and now he's sharing his finds and inspirations at DA. He's an avid doodler, like us all. I posted about his drawings here (Somewhere in the City) so get reacquainted with him! And now enjoy his first find for Doodlers Anonymous. I love show and tell!

In Alvaro's words: "If you live in New York, chances are that you will be noticed by Jason Polan. Not only will you be seen by him, but chances are high that you'll be drawn by him. That's his intention anyway. Jason is attempting to draw every person in New York and the result of this enterprise is the constantly updated blog "Every Person in New York." Honestly, I don't think that he will be able to accomplish it (it is quite a task), but let me say that it's is a wonderful thing to watch him try with such spontaneous, light and effortless trace."

Great Heights

Comic-style storylines, fine architectural detail, and precise drafting. I could get lost in the graphic and textual layers. I'm enamoured. Take a gander at Timothy J. Reynolds's Moleskins and you will be too.

Somewhere in the City

I am surrounded by some extremely talented people and I'm a lucky girl for it. Alvaro Naddeo is an Art Director originally from São Paulo, Brazil and now lives in New York. Some random facts about him: He is extremely hard working and punctual, he takes the 6 train every day, and his sketchbooks are wonderful - wonderfully simple. He captures his daily experiences in the city with only black ink - buildings, food, receipts - and there you have it.

Be Creative. Get Noticed.

H&M got a hold of us last week and told us about their "Your Art Here" contest, and now we'd like to share it with you. It's a fun contest, with a NYC theme. I just moved to New York. It is a city that has so much to offer, incredible energy and inspiration all around. So the theme is perfect. And I urge you to enter.

Now for the rules: Do something with a New York City theme, in your artistic style. The H&M on Fifth Ave. will give you their store window to use as your blank canvas. They'll fly you out to the city so you can install it yourself. And there are other goodies involved. Get more of the details here.

Think about it. A huge blank canvas for the world to see. And you can doodle away on it to your heart's content. Do it! You have until Oct. 5 to submit your piece.

Keep it Real

The brother/sister team of Studio SSS have taken their drawing skills to the streets of New York and illustrated 17 small business owners for an exhibition entitled "Alive and Kicking". The series is in tribute to the "the little guy" who works hard to keep family business running despite tough economic times. All profits will be donated to Transportation Alternatives (transalt.org).
