Funny, Inventive Doodles of an Investment Banker

matches skeleton bird doodle

Saeed Attari is a 36 year old investment banker from Bahrain and married with two children. Seems like a serious guy, but we know that doodle addicts come from all walks of life. In fact, Attari’s doodle muse is an imaginary pet named iBird! His doodles of iBird’s shenanigans are always interactive, incorporating mundane objects and contextualizing them into something exciting. These doodles look as simple as can be, but the ideas behind them pack a good punchline. Whether it’s food, phones, or his children’s toys, it seems like Attari can’t look at anything around his house without imagining what kind of trouble iBird would get into with it. It takes a good sense of humor to look at ordinary stuff lying around you on a daily basis and find a fresh way to have fun with it! Follow @ibird_art on instagram to keep an eye on iBird’s mischief.

Doodling the Mystical

Sometimes I peek into the hashtag #doodlersanonymous on instagram just to see what kind of trouble doodle addicts are cooking up. In today’s case, @nothingwolf’s Inktober series that he has been sharing on our hashtag got me really excited. The artist is Federico Tobon, who also goes as wolfCat. Diverse lines vary between thick black or fine dotting, the strong alongside the delicate in mysterious harmony. The symmetry of simple shapes form compelling compositions that naturally pull your eyes toward the peak of their design. I enjoyed his series of doodles on sheet music, with crazy characters creating chaos over the orderly notes. Clearly, wolfCat is not one to follow the rules and the results are nothing short of mystical.

Handwritten Inspiration

inspirational typography doodle

Need a daily tonic of motivation? I highly recommend the works of Eugenia Clara, an Indonesian artist with a major in Engineering who says she makes possibly more than a thousand doodles per year. Not only is Clara’s bright lettering filled with inspirational phrases, but the idea of making a doodle out of whatever words are coming to your mind is great for filling up a blank page when your creative well is running dry. Her art is simple and consistent, yet filled with personal intimacy and liveliness that typography can sometimes lack. I formed odd little connections to the artist’s emotions with each piece because Clara’s images include blurbs (which sometimes get very detailed) about what she was feeling when she wrote it. It pulls me in to know why certain words or quotes occurred to the artist. Certainly a richer experience than seeing generic positivity without any human context, if you ask me.

A Monochrome Moleskine

I am captivated by Vahid’s marvelous monochrome moleskine. It was no surprise for me to read that his illustration experience includes some projects in animation and cartooning, because the artist’s passion for it bleeds through into his sketchbook. My first impression of several drawings was that they seemed like paused frames in the middle of a movement. The boldness and simplicity of his illustrations, along with a story they seem to be suggesting, evoke ancient black-figure paintings with a modern spin. It’s a cool combination of sharp angles and soft curves creating fascinating figures that prove you don’t need color to breathe life into a sketch.

Doodles in Incredible Stop-Motion

What can you do in 15 seconds? Rachel Ryle is able to create miniature stop motion masterpieces that are so dainty and so irresistible. I watched and re-watched, and like a magic act, I'm dying to know how she pulls this off, but at the same time just enjoy relishing in the wonder and gaiety of her art. She's able to articulate the joy in life's simple pleasures, from warm fall cider to traveling to bubble gum, in the most delicate, painstakingly-detailed and creative way.

Bold Shapes That Demand Your Attention

There's so much to like about the black and white spreads in Tyler Keeton Robbins's sketchbook. It's like having monochromatic dreams of symbols and patterns. His stark palette, gradients, archetypes, and organic shapes are intended to play in our collective unconscious. "Drawing, painting, or creating anything with impatient urgency," Tyler writes, "allows ideas to evolve before they're corrupted by reason."

Beyond the psychology, his sketchbook art is just plain stunning. I'm mesmerized by how he's created meaning and intricacy and depth with extreme limitation of color, shape, and space. You want to check this out.

Designy Hand-drawn Coffee Cups

I found something great this morning while browsing Instagram's main feed: An artist who uses blank white coffee cups as his canvas. He cleverly uses the cups to draw labels for fake coffee branches, like a futuresque Cafe Nebula that I can imagine the Jetsons visiting or the Godot Cafe, where you can have a coffee while you wait. Much of Illarion Gordon’s #fakecoffeebranding has gloomy undertones, a darkly funny subversion of overly-optimistic branding. Follow @luftaffe on Instagram and have fun imagining what your drink from his imaginary coffee shops would taste like.

Also, we've highlighted plenty of coffee-related art on Doodlers Anonymous in the past. Check them out to keep your caffeine buzz going.
