Member Spotlight: Marie Lemaistre

I love it when I click through the members of our community and discover someone's work that really catches my attention.

Like many of us, Marie Lemaistre finds inspiration in films, cartoons, the music in the streets, and in her dreams. Her take on drawing is to keep a spontaneous expression of ideas, emotions and imagination going, while simultaneously trying not to censor or hesitate along the way. It works wonders in her illustrations and is just the right philosophy for any doodler out there.

Tangled by Drawn Mayhem

I'm not entirely sure what is in front of me right now... but at least I'm having fun looking at it. The black and white style looks deceptively simple at first glance, but focusing on the drawing reveals more and more silliness hidden within the lines the longer you explore it. I don't think that trying to make sense of the strange mayhem in Connor McPherson's alternate dimension is what I'm supposed to be doing, so I'm just going to go with the flow and enjoy the heck out of it. You should too.

EXCLUSIVE: He Doodles All Over Travel Passports and They Still Work!

We've been obsessed with Léonard Combier's doodles ever since he first messaged us about his art and an image of an inked up passport blew our minds, so it's incredibly exciting to finally share these exclusive images with you!

Sometimes Doodle Addicts find themselves in a pinch where there's no paper in reach, and that's when those of us who are in too deep start reaching for anything nearby that could possibly work. Léonard Combier, a 24 year old French illustrator enjoying life in Berlin, was bored in class with no paper to doodle on. A friend of his had their passport in their pocket, so Combier asked them if he could draw something on it. Like a good friend, they were excited about the idea, passed their passport over to him, and let Combier run wild with it. Combier liked the result so much that he continued to reach for different people's passports.

Does doodling on your passport cause an issue at the airport? Apparently not. These are not expired passports, and the original owners went on to travel abroad with them even after they've been drawn on. Combier assured me that his friends have crossed many countries, including the US, with their inked-up passports. They say customs officers usually look closely at the drawings, thinking it's part of the printed design of the passport, before they realize it's hand drawn—and they really like it!


When I asked the artist if it feels strange drawing on someone's passport, Combier said, "In a way it's better than drawing on a normal sheet of paper. All the little patterns that are already on the passport give more relief to my drawings. It's very funny to play with all the visas, the stamps, to write little messages that will be read by the custom officers, sometimes even a bit provocative. It's also very nice to know that the owner of the passport will have my drawing within reach for ten years, on an official document. A bit like a tattoo."

If you're in Berlin, own a valid passport and want a drawing, don't hesitate to send a message (and a Like) on Léonard Combier's Facebook page.

Doodles Save This News Anchor's Live Weather Forecast

A weather reporter from ABC News 4 was attempting to deliver his daily update on live TV when the computer that animates the forecast froze up. After a few minutes of small talk, the anchor team quickly doodled up a few weather icons and then throw them up onto the green screen behind him. It's a great example of improvising on live TV.

A Whole New World

You’ve seen countless pictures of these worldwide monuments before, but none quite like this. Himanshu Agrawal shows you the world through his eyes by doodling on manipulated photos of iconic landmarks in his Archi-Fracture series, making them seem like something new.

It’s a shame that photos of incredible places can start to seem mundane after you've been overexposed to them, so seeing Agrawal bring new life and humor to these places is the kick I needed to appreciate how awesome these sites actually are.

Needles and Doodles (Noodles?!)

In case my Making Monsters entry didn't make it obvious, I'll say it: I'm really into seeing doodles come off the page. Sometimes doodling can be a gateway drug to other arty addictions. For example, Robin Amy Darling makes embroidery based on her doodles!

Robin says it's "time consuming, labour intensive and considered old fashioned, but extraordinary things can be achieved with a needle and thread." You can see proof that she's 100% right on her tumblr!

Doodle My Ride


Quick, to the Doodlemobile! It all started when Allison improvised a creative way to cover up some scratches on her boyfriend's car, which he didn’t mind because he was making plans to repaint it anyway. She got a little carried away and kept doodling beyond the scratches, until she had sharpied the entire bumper in one night. Needless to say, the repainting plans got trashed and the car became Allison's new canvas. About 100 hours of frenzied doodling later, they now have the most eye-catching car I’ve seen in a long time.

Bonus! Click after the fold to see a time-lapse video of Allison at work, including funny peeks at what she does during her breaks from doodling.
