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.

Sexy Hamburger

Sometimes when I eat out for dinner I get a bit overwhelmed with the menu. The waitress is tapping her foot while I ummm and ahh between the chef's special or an old favourite, or the risky but delightfully-coloured "drink special". I really cannot be buggered with all these meal options, may I just say "whatever" and you choose it for me? Please?



Anyhow. Here's a few freshly hand-picked culinary doodlings by Kyle Fewell from his blog Hello, this is food. No need to choose one. Just eat them all up.

Chronic Bitchface and Other Such Things!

This lady has been sitting pretty in my blogroll for a few years now, serving-up cute faces and colours that go pop. She's the illustrator who spoke-up about "chronic bitchface" (pictured below) and her fashion illustrations are my ticket into a world of lavender-tipped ponytails, and art that hangs on shoulders rather than walls.



Her sketchbooks are so freakin' lovely! Oh, and she goes by the name Kris Atomic.

Anorak Publishes the Winning Drawings

I was so happy to get my hands on the Summer edition of Anorak magazine. What an incredible issue: First, it starts off with a banging cover by Jack Teagle. Then it's page after page of spectacular illustrations and stories by folks like Lesley Barnes, Anat Sifri and Cachete Jack, with principal illustrations by Matthew Bromley.

And finally it ends on two full spreads of black and white drawings from the Doodlers Anonymous community. There's no doubt kids will be eager to color these pages in. Congratulations again to all of you for participating and playing along, and special thanks to Anorak for the incredible effort to always publish beautiful content.

Relentless Optimism

I stumbled upon Chad Kouri's work awhile ago through Will Bryant's website. I believe they had done a collaboration on a project and I was completely refreshed from the colors, textures, and style of Chad's work. I am particularly drawn to his wonderful collages and use of very minimal layouts with them. I read a quote somewhere that basically said it's not what is on the page, but what's not. When I look at Chad's work my mind is free to roam through each piece and create my own realities surrounding what it means, what it doesn't mean, etc..



Not only does he do amazing collage work but he also gets down with some mean hand drawn typography. I really love how he collaged his doodles, drawings, typographic designs and scrap pieces of paper for the Write Now: Artists and Letterforms. Whenever I can see an artists process it makes me feel pretty normal about all the things both internally and externally I go through to create a piece. Seeing the visual thought of working through a problem tends to inspire my process and shines new light on the directions I can take.

Personal Greatness

I have been a huge fan of James Victore for awhile now. He has made a living in the design world by doing exactly what he wants and by not compromising. I love his perspective of clients being comrades, loving what you do, and putting yourself in your work by making it personal.



Victore's work is filled with scribbles, scratches, and lots of personality. It rides the edge of being in your face and being transparent. He is one of the original doodlers. One of the original rebels waving his middle finger to advertising companies who think "we are stupid."

I was very excited when he opened up a Q and A through his website where designers, illustrators and anyone else could write in to get his advice. He has taken on subjects like Self Doubt, Creative Burnout, All-nighters, etc… It's been very inspiring to have someone who has done such great work take on questions that all makers have had at one point or another. I will end this post with a quote from James in hopes you will visit his site, watch his videos and be as inspired as I am.

Surreal Dreamy Drawings

From my latest discoveries, the beautiful surreal illustrations made by Katrin Berge are definitely one of my favorites, check the detail in each one of them, how inspiring and evocative they are, the magic that they transmit, every story told one line at a time finishes with a beautiful piece. If you are as amazed as I am you should take a look and fly through this wonderful source of inspiration.
