April Spooks

I never wait until October to enjoy a good dose of spooky. This Italian artist's sketchbook is a small town of goofy monsters, all drawn in sepia pen. The bizarre creatures Paride Bertolin dreams up are scary in design, but the darkness became lighthearted after I noticed their awkward and playful expressions. I find it so endearing to see them looking gawky and stiff, like nervous new acquaintances or someone who hates having their picture taken. If the quirky and the macabre are right up your alley, go look at Bertolin’s sketchbook right now!

Collages of Strange Anatomy


Come visit the misunderstood creatures of Beetle Blossom's zoo. Kate McCann carefully cuts apart and rearranges pages from old medical books or fashion magazines that are antique and forgotten, and from the many tiny pieces of paper she creates beastly and fragile hybrids made of bones, insects, plants, human anatomy, and more.

Her paper creatures are grotesque and engrossing, yet so disturbing and elegant that instead of looking away you want to peer closer. McCann says, "Part science fiction, and part fairy story, these collages are like scientific records of my discoveries."

Halloween Treat: Making Monsters

Chelsea Bloxsom makes monsters. She’s like Frankenstein stitching together frightening creatures, except hers are a lot more neon. What I love about her is that she posts doodles of her monstrous ideas before she takes them to the sewing table. Colorful, mischievous, and just a little bit spooky - it’s too fitting for an entry on Halloween. Visit her instagram or her website to see more of her creepy creations.

Tumblr of the Week: DERIK

How excited would you be if you were out for a walk and came across these guys eying you through a window? My favorite thing about these vibrant characters is how they bring life and humor to the otherwise colorless places they are found in. It's fun to see artists getting creative with the environment beyond their pens and paper. I'm lucky that DERIK happens to follow the DA tumblr so that I could have the chance to stumble onto his blog. Street artists like him make the world a more magical place full of colorful surprises around unexpected corners!

If you're addicted to tumbling as well as doodling, follow Doodlers Anonymous on Tumblr for even more daily inspiration. You might even see yourself on there!

Personal Space, What's That?

I love it when I discover cool stuff like this shared by fellow doodlers on the DA flickr group. This doodler does not waste paper. I feel like monocat's sketches really capture the spirit of spontaneous doodles as almost every inch of the page has something crammed into it.

Even though it may look like a mishmash of unrelated doodles, there's a cool chemistry between the colorful characters as they seem to be reacting to one another and their predicament of being squeezed together and having someone else intrude on their personal space. Enjoy them, I did.

Look-N-Find

Long-time friend of DA, Mr. Jess Smart Smiley is making a children's book he's quite passionate about. It's not often that I post about Kickstarter type projects, but I couldn't help falling in love with his cute monsters and playful scenes. The book is titled, Rumpus on the Run, and is Kickstarter's first "look-n-find" book.

Lucky for us, Jess passed along some of his sketches from over the years. Take a look below and make sure to check out his Kickstarter page, the rewards especially, he's even offering to draw some of you right into the book ;)

Magic Monsters

I discovered Delphine Durand (and her entourage of weird animals) when she was teaching a workshop at Ilustratour. I couldn't go and was left with the desire. Since then, I follow her work from the distance.

I love her magic and bizarre animated monsters that walk around her drawings and on her books and travel journals.

And thanks to her, I know about "Les Cahiers de L'Articho", a French illustration magazine that's got me blown away. She also has an amazing pinterest page where she uploads everything she likes.
