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.

Coloring Book Interview Series, #3: Paulo Correa

Illustrations in our coloring books all have their own personality, that's what happens when every page comes from a different artist. One of the stand-out styles is Philippino artist Paulo Correa. His sketchbook is full of a cast of crazy characters and so much going on in every image that you'll miss half the details if you only look at it for a few seconds.

Featured Artist #21: Greg Kletsel

Greg Kletsel is a drawing machine. In all seriousness, I believe he must be built of metal and moving parts with at least one robotic arm and an infinite supply of ink. That's the only thing that could explain the amount of work he outputs.

I met Greg a thousand years ago when he interviewed at the studio I worked at. The position didn't play out, but I liked his drawing skills and asked if he'd draw up an idea I had for a t-shirt. That's how Tools of the Trade was born (it's still one of my favorite tees).

Today, Greg is a full-time illustrator and designer based in Brooklyn, New York who's rocking it on the illustration scene. Cranking out zines, comics, posters, and all while filling up sketchbook pages by the minute. I have tons of respect for Greg and so it made perfect sense to feature his work in an exclusive drawn interview. He of course did not take the task lightly and simply blew our minds away with his drawn responses to each question. Check out the detail, line work and thought behind each drawing. Wow!

This is My Kind of Buried Treasure

It's been a while since I've seen the movies, but as far as I remember, when Indiana Jones finds buried treasure, he barely lets out a little squeal under his breath. He's also probably too cool to start hiccupping because he's JUST. SO. DELIGHTED with what he's found today!

Me though? When I find buried treasure, I'm hardly cool about it. So when illustrator John Hersey emailed me these exclusive sketchbook doodlings, you better believe I was making all sorts of awkward noises under my breath! (Apologies to my fellow cafe-patrons who were trying to quietly sip their lattes at the time).

So far these doodlings have only been seen by John, his kids... and now we're JUST. SO. DELIGHTED to dust them off and share them with you guys! Enjoy.

From Sketches to Carved Coins

You'll do a double take when you see John Schipp's re-carved coins. It's okay, we did too, these coins are so insanely detailed you'd swear they're fake.

It's obvious you can only get to such a result with tons of patience, dedication and talent, but we were still so curious about the process that I contacted John to clue us in on how he turns coins into amazing art.
