Sonni's World

Sonni is an Argentine artist currently based in Brooklyn. I first met him on a family trip to Buenos Aires in 2008. He was painting a huge mural in preparation for one of his solo shows, and I immediately dug his style. We met again in NY last year, and I was able to catch up with everything he's been working on.



This guy is a machine of creativity. Paintings, installation, sculpture, comics, design, illustration, huge outdoor pieces, animation, he does everything. Yet the content for all of these different mediums begins with his drawings. Sonni's iconic characters live in a world from our youth, where simple shapes and primary colors form giant boomboxes, musical instruments, pencils and paint. When I look at his work, I feel the need to grab my art supplies, put on some music and start making things along with his characters.

Sonni's art is a great example of how your drawings and ideas can evolve into any medium, creating a massive and cohesive visual language. For more, check out Sonni Studios. He's also on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

Great Pal Alexandra Valenti



Alexandra Valenti is a great photographer here in Austin. She can shoot just about anything that moves or doesn't move, too, I guess. But the true artist comes out when she adds her hand work to each photo. Instead of using Photoshop to make the photos amazing, Alexandra prints them and then paints directly on top of them.

She also makes great drawings and doodles, as well. Here are a few below:

Thank Heavens for Old Books

The art from Ekaterina Panikanova's second ever solo show is brilliant, and a stark reminder that we need to hang onto the tangibles from our history. When I see this type of work I crave for the analog, and cringe to think about a future of digital audio books and downloadable reads. I still want the smell and feel of worn-out pages between my fingers. We're moving too fast. I need a breather. Stop, let's hold hands and look at the beautiful art together.

Matchbook Paintings





These images will make you look twice, and maybe two more times after that. Joseph Martinez paints inside matchbooks with such precision and patience you wont believe it until you watch the video for yourself. The art is often times smaller than the size of a dime.

I can't imagine anything more fascinating than seeing these matchbook paintings in person. Fortunately, those of you in San Francisco will have the opportunity at his upcoming show, A Little Piece of the Bay.

Scroll down, and you'll be asking yourself again and again how he's achieving such depth, shadows and detail.

Warblevision



Friend of DA, Jangojim, dropped me an email with a heads up on his friend, Alex Warble and a recent video he posted of the process of going from doodle to digital (youtube link). I watched the video, and then spent some time on Alex's quirky and off-the-wall website, where links and colorful images are sporadically laid-out across the page. I quickly got lost in his world of imaginative and almost child-like highbrow meets lowbrow art. He's a music/mural/painting loving mad man and I'm happy to have discovered him. You should too, and if you reside in Memphis you're probably already quite familiar with his murals spread across town.

Buried In The Attic

Two years ago I waved hello (cyber-wave that is) to Caroline Gaedechens and asked her to please send over a few sketchbook pages. Then somehow I forgot all about it... until today! Thank you Gmail unlimited storage, you da-best.

I've never had an attic in my house, but I imagine this is what it feels like to have a spring-clean and find a treasure. A gentle, quiet, hand-drawn treasure in the attic.

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.
