The Many Faces of a Toilet Paper Roll

I only recently came to know Andrew Orlando. He stopped by our studio to drop off a drawn Doodle Addict Postcard and with him was a bright green tote bag. When I looked inside, dozens of faces stared back at me. I immediately lit up, the bag was filled with toilet paper rolls that he covered with bright and bold colors of paint and marker. Eyes, teeth, scribbled hair and so many expressions formed these comical characters. Over 30 rolls in hand and he told me he had tons more back home, I believe he said his goal was to reach one-thousand.

Milk Does A Sketchbook Good

Portraits made with oil paint, that is what Soey Milk (an artist from Pasadena, California) is best known for, but I wanted to look beneath all of that and showcase the drawings you'd find in her sketchbook.

I think you'll agree, I found them to be just as dramatic and seductive.

Accomplished

He's in his early twenties and has already amassed an endless amount of drawings, sketches, paintings and comics. I'm not even sure what to post from his flickr archive because I love it all, from the colors in his paintings to his pupil-less people and panel-heavy drawn pages. That was a mouthful, but his work truly is overwhelming. Meet Saman Bemel Benrud.

Raindrops, Cats & Hearts

Dorset, England's Heidi M is quite gracious. She's eager to share her process and what makes her "tingle and buzz with creativity." Take her up on the offer: peek into her sketchbook where she's developing characters for a new story, and take a gander at her hand-painted greeting cards, including one of Frida Kahlo. You’ll fancy Heidi’s
pencil-sketched watercolor portraits. They’re pretty and polite.

No Need for a Clean-Up

One can tell that when Zé Otavio opens up his sketchbook, he holds nothing back. And that is exactly how a sketchbook should be used. His pages are layer upon layer of dirty, rough scratches, scribbles, tearings - you name it. I say we all open up our sketchbooks today and let ourselves go.

Sex, Comedy and Animals

I just got inspired by looking at my amazing friends' blog (If you're hungry for inspiration on this lazy sunday, check out Wunderkabinett). Thanks to their blog, I discovered the beautiful art of Kelsey Brookes and am now one of his biggest fans.

Kelsey is a former biochemist who lives by the beach in San Diego. Lucky man. And he attributes his raw art style to an education system that "refuses to teach scientists to draw."

If you like loud, colorful, abstract, and just plain jaw-dropping good art, you've come to the right place. Here it is. The ingenious talent that is Kelsey Brookes.

This Too Helps

Sometimes it's not just about the content, but instead, about the context. When I look at the work of Gamze Özer, I feel like all the elements of his hand-made collages (doodles, paint, clippings) fall onto the page exactly where they belong. They are seemingly done in such a free style, yet you can sense the purpose behind them.
