Doodling with a purpose: How to create art that speaks

Those lines you just left on paper – are those really just doodles?

Could it be more than just meandering lines that you've mindlessly put together? Mindless not in the way it was created, but mindless in the way how easily our minds shifts from one thought to the next, perplexing, changing, evolving and never the same. Mindless in weight, in troubles and in spirit? A line that solidifies our constant state of flux, by being there – a constant. A reminder. A mark left in time that captures the essence of what makes drawing such a personal affair.

What happens beyond the meandering? At what point does a drawing become art? Or is every doodle a work of art in itself? I'd like to think it’s more the latter, but at the same time, sometimes not all doodles are made equal – sometimes it's nothing more than it is. And yet some are more than they truly show. An image, a still, captured in time. A thought. A fleeting emotion. Raw. Keep reading...

Art: In Construction

I’m looking at my dream home! Noel Badges Pugh’s pen and watercolor houses become more breathtaking with every passing moment that your eyes linger on the page. Unsurprisingly, I enjoy the process photos more than the finished products. The artist pays meticulously close attention to drawing the finest architectural details, which are given captivating depth by rich color shading. It’s particularly interesting for me to see this juxtaposed with the “bare bones” version of the house in the same drawing. A nice visual reminder that amazing illustrations have simple beginnings.

Magical Doodle Vines

Like a song I could listen to over and over, I’m stuck watching Pinot’s vines on repeat. This Indonesian artist’s channel is full of speedy process videos that are are an absolute delight to watch. It’s more than just watching him draw, though. Pinot always starts from scratch, beginning with a blank paper and telling fun visual stories along the way. Many incorporate elements from the world around the paper, making doodles that literally come off the page. It's amazing to think of how challenging it must be to not only draw and record these concepts, but to have only a few seconds to execute them. Each one is like watching a magic illusion unfolding before your very eyes!

Collaboration in Perfect Harmony

I cannot remember when or how I came across this video but I absolutely love it. I find myself coming back to watch it again and again. I have found in my own personal experience, that collaboration with other artists either works great or is a disaster. These two artists Supakitch and Koralie really pull it off flawlessly. Their work harmonizes beautifully. Everything about this video from the music for the way it is shot are perfect. The colors and the flow of the work is amazing. Such a great pairing of style.

The Beautiful Creative Process
of David Engzell

Watch this video of David Engzell's process of creating. It will make you want to race home and draw over the largest sheet of anything that you can find. I've watched this in loop over nine times now. You should too.

Mark It Up

Ken Garduno, from Los Angeles, California, is amazing at his craft. But instead of showing his final, polished pieces, we want to highlight his more rough sketches.

Sometimes you need nothing more than some black ink and a sheet of paper (and possibly Ken's hand). The line is a beautiful thing.

We're All In This Together

Process is everything to me. It's much of the reason why I started Doodlers Anonymous. I love seeing behind the scenes and early thoughts of artists, writers, any creative for that matter. Getting a glimpse of sketchbook pages no one was meant to see, or storyboards that show development of what worked or didn't work is many times more inspiring than the final outcome.

Three Legged Legs has done an incredible job of documenting their collaboration with Droga5 to bring to life an animated ad spot for Method Cleaners and Virgin America. The spot itself is a minute-long animated ride in the sky with illustrated characters and exaggerated stereotypes. Their process of going "…from a super quick shitty thumbnail doodle-fest, to a more elaborate After Effects animatic," is so wonderful to see come to life, and you'll love the end result.

Here are some of the process doodles, but make sure to watch the rough cut animation and more at their site.
