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.

Javier Perez: Drawing Inspiration

I was recently asked to participate in a drawing contest hosted by Udemy. The theme is based around the work of Javier Perez, who creates clever drawings built upon simple objects around him.

For my own drawing, I dug through my desk drawer at work and saw a fish peering back at me from a roll of correction tape.

While I’m not sure I was too true to the minimal nature of the drawn element of this creation, I did find the process and result very rewarding! This contest was a fun exercise in challenging my regular technique by inserting something foreign, and figuring out a way to incorporate it and fit into my drawing style.

You can enter the contest, too! Click here to see the details and more examples of Javier’s work, and have fun seeing objects around you in a different way!

Extraordinary Illustrations on Ordinary Objects

We know these aren't exactly doodles, but the illustrated sculptures of French artist Gilbert Legrand are too fun not to share. He has been working in Toulouse for 20 whole years, dividing his time between designing characters and book covers, and using everyday household objects as the canvas for his illustrations. Legrand takes ordinary junk and transforms it into extraordinary characters by using a wide array of different materials like wire, wood, paint, and nails to defy your expectations. It takes an impressive imagination to look at stuff you use on a daily basis and still manage to draw some fresh, exciting inspiration from it. I stared at the above mouse for a while, so absorbed by the character illustrated that it took me a while to even figure out it was drawn on a hanger.

Many of his sculptures have a poetic, humorous twist to them, like the waiter made from a corkscrew who is carrying a bottle of wine on his tray or the lovers embracing on scissors. I had a lot of fun scrolling through his work and appreciating the way he can transform the most mundane objects into unexpected sources of delight.

Not All Drawn Objects Are Created Equal

When I doodle and draw, my preference is to make it of something tangible. I am partial to simple, ordinary, everyday objects. This is the very reason I am falling for the bold lines and shapes of Sofia's drawn vases. I wish they were real, sitting up on my window sill.

Sofia Schizas is also a master of craft, making things under the name of Hey Sosi. You're crazy if you don't want one of her "Cosmic Cushions."

Getting Sacred with Adrian Landon Brooks

Adrian Landon Brooks is a Houston, Texas artist that I first came in contact with through graffiti art. We were both graffiti artists and had a lot of mutual friends. Many years later we were both living in Austin, Texas and this is when I became more acquainted with his non graffiti art. We exhibited together in a group exhibition and also collaborated on a mural. He often paints on found objects and draws on old photographs. I love his use of color and strong imagery often focused on the concept of a savior bringing in aspects of religious painting such as the use of halos. He says about this, "I am drawn to sacred art of all kinds, especially art that emphasizes a 'savior.' Finding my creative voice brought freedom and redemption from everything that ails me. When I am creating work, the outside world is on pause and I can completely let go of all the trials and tribulations of the day. I feel that this is represented in the iconic images I create and is my attempt at paying homage to something greater than myself."

Check out more of his work at and @AdrianLandonBrooks on Instagram.
