Colorific World!





Some time ago, I found Lili Scratchy, a french illustrator and ceramic artisan who's world never stops surprising me. Going into her sketchbooks is like figuring out how her mind is like: A whole lot of little speaking monsters, colours, fruits, letters and weird animals.

Don't forget to take a look at her ceramic work, it's pretty impressive.

She has a blog that updates quite often and a Flickr where you can find all her work.

The Daily Coffee



This morning (and every morning) I need my coffee to get going. Sometimes for the caffeine, sometimes for the ritual.

It seems Brandon Ortwein would agree. Since October 2010, Brandon has taken to making a daily coffee cup post-it note drawing. As you'd expect from a caffeinated doodle, they are full of color and energetic marker streaks. I love these drawings as a collection. It's a reminder of how something simple, done overtime, could look impressive and complete.

Portland Travelogue

I always romanticized about creating my own travelogue, but whenever I travel, I never get around to it. Perhaps when I'm away from home my curiousness of unseen places overtakes that internal desire. I guess that's why I turn to the web to live out this dream through someone else. Recently, Mike Rohde's Portland travelogue peaked my interest. At first I wasn't exactly clear why. But through the process of writing this very entry I realized that his travelogue was not filled with overly-stylized drawings or excessive details, just sprinkles of doodles across the pages that allowed my imagination to simmer with visuals of places I've never been.

Starbucks Coffee Cup Doodles





Tokomo draws cute characters that interplay with Starbucks coffee cups. Day after day she uploads doodles to her Instagram feed that receive quite the love (over 2,000 likes an image). Her consistency is incredible and I'm always pleased when she reveals how the drawing will play onto the surface of the cup.

Starbucks owes this girl some stock options. More after the fold

Boo!

I could have gone the ghouls and goblin route those maliciously-frighting creatures that roam the night, but instead I choose pay tribute to the friendlier Ghost. You know the one: draped in white, a shocked face, and sometimes even shy. It is certainly one of the more charming characters in All Hallow's Eve. This is my tribute (above by obsequies).

More ghosts

This Book Will Ignite Your Creativity

I've been drawing my whole life, but often I find myself stuck staring at a blank page wishing for some kind of push to get me going. As a creative, momentum is everything. Once I settle in, I feel like I can draw for hours and never stop, but getting there is always the challenge.

If you can relate, then you need to be friends with Lisa Currie. Lisa is the queen of drawing prompts, a muse in a way. She has this incredible ability of presenting you with a guided challenge (and constraint) from just a few simple black lines and a short phrase, but don't mistake that for meaning there's a lack of sophistication to the task. It's specifically that simplicity that encourages the most creative and aesthetic responses.



She'll posts prompts and submissions weekly over at the Scribble Project's blog, but now there's something way better. The folks at Perigee (a division of Penguin) have published 192 pages of her quirky and imaginative doodle sheets, and they've declared it: The Scribble Diary. I love this book because I can carry it with me anywhere and find that it's constantly the spark I need to put my pen to paper.






(Sample Pages drawn in by Jaimeks, Lisa Davies and Takatoshi Sano)

We are lucky at Doodlers Anonymous, because Lisa is on staff here as one of our favorite contributors. We'd like to congratulate her on this book and encourage all of you to get your hands on it and play along. You'll find it to be a gem in your collection.
