Can Someone Please Translate This For Me?

Guten Tag! Auf Wiedersehen! That's about as far as my German goes. If only my second-grade German teacher had forced a few more foreign words into my soft young brain. I mean, one day we all made pancakes in class... is that even a German thing? Hmmm.

It's lucky then that my favourite German comic artist Nadine Redlich speaks mostly in pictures! Her drawings are cute, a bit smutty, and only sometimes need a helpful whisper from Google translate. Also her chill new series of "ambient comics" are surprisingly nice to stare at for a while.

Genießen! (that means "enjoy" in German.... I think)

Girlie Pains

The thing I like most about Mel Stringer's sketchbooks is that they feel like peeking into someone's diary. A diary that's tucked away under a bed with a threatening note doodled on the cover and hearts on the spine. The kind of diary that only your best friend is allowed to look inside, while eating cereal, listening to mix tapes and giving each-other homemade tattoos…

Take a Hike to Pencil Mountain

Jessie, AKA Pencil Mountain, has so many wonderful drawings that I had a hard time selecting what to feature. Her drawings have a range - some of them are straightforward interactions between characters, while others are less representational and focus on mark making.

With the scope of Jessie’s work, there seems to be an overarching theme of demise. One person is sending another to the grave, and even some of the flora seem like it’s wilting. My favorite part of her drawings are the skulls, gravestones (I think) that are peppered throughout her more abstracted works.

For more of Pencil Mountain, visit her Flickr!

Kelly Lasserre

Hey all! I'm excited to be sharing some great illustrators and projects on Doodlers Anonymous this month as a guest blogger. To start things off, I'd like to tell you about the work of Kelly Lasserre!

Kelly and I were both Illustration majors at MICA (Maryland Institute College of Art) several years ago. It's great to see how her work has grown since then. Much of her work includes text, and Kelly's hand lettering is in harmony with her drawing and painting.

Overall, I find Kelly's illustrations really amusing, but also informative (I now know how to make a Bloody Mary), and reveal some sad-but-true things about life in general.

Check out: Kelly's website and her Tumblr.

Skinny Dipping

Those long, limber bodies floating in black pencil - so beautiful. Move your nose in close to the screen, so you can notice the details. See that lady gently reach out for the ankles of another swimmer? Maybe she'd like to just hold on, close her eyes for a bit, feel the water rush past every inch of her skin. Gosh I'd love some warm ocean and a deserted beach right now!

This is my favourite drawing by Laura Geurten but she has other lovely pictures that deserve a peek, too.

Giveaway: 1000 Days of Drawing

I've never met another drawing madman like Chris Piascik. His sharpie must never leave his hand. On DA alone we've featured his work countless times and now again, for a compilation of one-thousand of his drawings. Every day, for many, many days now Chris has doodled something in the category of music, politics, bikes, characters, complaints, quotes or plain old improvised doodles.

I am going to give one of you this book. All you have to do is leave a comment below with something that you obsess over, like Chris obsesses over drawing. Share your addiction with the rest of us, and your name gets put in the hat. We'll randomly choose one of you in seven days. Comments close (end of day) July 16th, we'll draw the name the following day. Go on now, play along.

Release Me

There is no escape for the characters drawn by Dimas Forchetti. Each one is locked in by the roots of their own misfortune, as the lines twist, turn and intertwine with one another.
