A Beautiful Tribute: Google Illustrates Some of Steinbeck's Monumental Works





Perhaps no novel opens more powerfully than John Steinbeck's Cannery Row: "Cannery Row in Monterey in California is a poem, a stink, a grating noise, a quality of light, a tone, a habit, a nostalgia, a dream."

Steinbeck delicately drags the reader into the visceral, tactile, and palpable worlds of his Depression era characters. We smell and taste and spit out life with them.

Today Google doodled some of Steinbeck's monumental works in celebration of his birthday. The illustrated slides, featuring quotes from the depicted novels, are a bold and beautiful tribute to a cherished American author. Hats off Google- gorgeously executed.

Tumblr of the Week:
Ahmet Özcan Illustrations



I came across the drawings of Ahmet Özcan after he mailed in one of our Doodle Addict postcards and then again when he submitted an illustration for our latest coloring book. My favorite posts are the photos of his awesome white-on-black doodles over his sketchbook. The characters in his drawings are creature feature material, often looking as if they are emerging out of the whiteness to come after you. There's something so interesting about the way he leaves out the body of the monster, leaving much of it up to your imagination to color in. Equal parts playful and creepy, fans of monsters will love his doodles! See more of his images »

Work Made Him Mental



I know absolutely nothing about Ben Thorley except for the following three things. One, he doodles a lot, like everyday all the time and the doodles are mostly of people's faces saying things, sometimes random, sometimes completely relevant. I love them all. Two, he photographs them in weird lighting with odd Hipstamatic photo frames. That part, I'm not a big fan of. Three, he comes from Manchester (UK).

Follow him on Twitter, it's where I discovered him.

The Daily Doodles of Andy Khun



Andy Khun is an illustrator from Seoul, South Korea. I first came across his work on instagram when I was living in Seoul. But it was not until I had moved to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam that I had the chance to meet him in person. The first month I was here he happened to be having an exhibition only a few blocks from my apartment. A dedicated doodler he posts several new drawings every day on his instagram and facebook pages. His illustrations are fun and quirky I hope you enjoy!

Oodles of Doodles

Hello everyone! Today I would like to share with you some of my own personal doodles and drawings that I have been working on recently. I will have a spread in an upcoming issue of Color Ink Book and have been working hard on new drawings for it. My favorite is my little twist on The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein: "The Giving Boy". He was a huge influence on me as a kid. I would check his books out at the school library and practice drawing by copying his artwork.

I've also been working on a series of 15 new paintings/drawings for an upcoming exhibition in Houston, Texas. I am doing all the paintings in the same neon color scheme. I hope you enjoy and here's to another super productive week! Keep on doodling! Continue reading »

Professional Illustrator Collaborates
with 4-Year-Old



Disclaimer: This has been all over the internet this weekend. I originally discovered it from a tweet by Anthony (@nedroid) yesterday, but have since seen it posted everywhere from The Verge to This Is Colossal. It's simply too good to pass up and definitely one of my favorite things I've seen this year.

Professional illustrator Mica Angela Hendricks (aka busymockingbird) is really good at what she does, one of them being drawing retro, vintage heads. Recently, she's upped her game by collaborating with a special someone -- her 4 year old daughter.

It started innocently enough with her daughter sneaking in some lines and scribbles to create bodies for the faces.

"Not surprisingly, I LOVED what she drew. I had drawn a woman’s face, and she had turned her into a dinosaur-woman. It was beautiful, it was carefree, and for as much as I don’t like to share, I LOVED what she had created. Flipping through my sketchbook, I found another doodle of a face I had not yet finished. She drew a body on it, too, and I was enthralled. It was such a beautiful combination of my style and hers. And she LOVED being a part of it. She never hesitated in her intent. She wasn’t tentative. She was insistent and confident that she would of course improve any illustration I might have done. …And the thing is, she DID."



Later, Mica would use her talents to go back and add color, paint and details to bring the improvised collaboration to life. The results are jaw-dropping. I still can't get over how well their two talents mesh together. Read her original post that details the entire process and if you'd like, she's even put up a bunch of the final prints for sale at Society6.

Last.fm Doodles

We all have our obsessions. Mine is checking off all the TV episodes I've finished watching on my SeriesGuideX app. Andrea M (aka Something Different) takes things a bit further.

For what looks like months, Andrea has been doodling her weekly listening stats on Last.fm in her sketchbook. What you get are fun visual peek into her life that only one's musical selections can provide.
