June's Guest Contributor: Rik Catlow (aka rikcat)



I first discovered and wrote about Rik Catlow's drawings back in September of 2012, during a member spotlight on his "urban pop art" style. I've been following his updates ever since and his tricked-out collages just keep getting better.

It's my pleasure to introduce him as our guest contributor for the month of June. He'll be blogging alongside our usual team and highlighting artists and other visual finds that are sure to peak your interest.



In the meantime, be sure to check out his incredibly cool paint jobs on smashed aluminum cans. He's also got an Etsy shop filled with original handmade art and as an added bonus, we are giving away a Rik Catlow digital wallpaper that's hot off the presses for you to enjoy. Grrr!

Heads Will Roll



I'm really enjoying the folksy art coming from Emmanuel Gutiérrez (aka EMMGUT) out of Costa Rica. His style feels familiar yet unique. I love how simple the drawings present in just black ink and then how they completely pop off the page when he adds the color and shading. His instagram feed is chock full of good stuff.

Tumblr of the Week: Bela Unclecat

Our first time crossing paths with Bela Unclecat was when she sent us back one of our Doodle Addict postcards from Japan with one of the most charming and lively doodles we have received. Just look at it! How many animals can you count in the left corner alone? There is a chicken thing standing on a cat that is holding a stack of tea cups that the chicken thing is drinking out of and there is a stream of tea coming into the teacup from a teapot, suddenly we've travelled all the way to the opposite side of the picture, what a magical journey that was and we're nowhere near done seeing all the sights there are to see.

There's plenty more where that came from on Bela Unclecat's tumblr. I just can't get enough of her nostalgically playful universe.

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!

Peculiar Little Paintings





Angela Dalinger's work is, well, odd. Characteristically so. The subject matter, which can be violent, morose or sexually-charged, conflicts with her two-dimensional, rudimentary, colorful style-- leaving me feeling somewhat peculiar about the whole thing, and at the same time drawn to the idiosyncrasies. In true art brut form, her work seems intentionally unintentional and subversive. I'm left wanting an explanation I know I'll never get. Or maybe I've overthought the whole damn thing and she's just painting pretty little pictures in a quiet 100-person town bordering a forest.

When Women Laugh



Inspired by Roy Lichtenstein’s Shipboard Girl, Danor Shtruzman captures laughing women in watercolor. His work shares the same cliched femininity and comic book sensibility as the pop art icon, but his use of greyscale on aged book pages adds a texture and meaning all his own. His Laughing Girl series is an unabashed tribute to happiness in a sometimes lonely world. Smile and the world smiles with you.

The Quintessential, Quirky, Compendium of Cats / A Mini-Coloring Book Featuring 28 Global Artists





Purring softly in the corner, curled up and licking itself, is DA's first mini-coloring book, and we suddenly realized that we never made the acquaintance. So, dear community, we're proud to introduce you to "The Quintessential, Quirky, Compendium of Cats!"

As submissions rolled in for our second coloring book, we noticed an undeniable theme. Cats from here till Sunday - cats wearing clothes, admiring cubist paintings, looking French, sipping coffee. So we hoarded (*ahem, I mean compiled) them like a crazy cat lady, knowing one day we'd find them a proper home, a book all their own.

And so the mini-coloring book was born! The book -- featuring 28 global artists in a mashup of styles-- is truly the cat’s meow, because it's not only creative and cuddly, it's charitable.



In honor of OKAT's own shelter cat, Mylo, Doodlers Anonymous and The Quintessential, Quirky, Compendium of Cats! is proud to support The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® and its mission to save lives. (aspca.org)

Like anything from our shop, this will ship with a DA doodle sticker, bookmark and postcard. So color it up, get crazy with a crayon, and help support our feline friends!

Not All Drawn Objects Are Created Equal

When I doodle and draw, my preference is to make it of something tangible. I am partial to simple, ordinary, everyday objects. This is the very reason I am falling for the bold lines and shapes of Sofia's drawn vases. I wish they were real, sitting up on my window sill.

Sofia Schizas is also a master of craft, making things under the name of Hey Sosi. You're crazy if you don't want one of her "Cosmic Cushions."
