Kate Gavino's Drawings of Readings



Quotes are a powerful force. Reading the right ones can change your entire perspective on life, love, and other big deals. Weird to think that a few words can have that effect! Kate Gavino is a New Yorker who goes to book readings regularly, and isnít satisfied with just tweeting a good quote when she hears it. In her prolific Last Nightís Reading series, she sketches portraits of the authors while she is at their reading, alongside a favorite quote from the night. Itís the perfect marriage of her passions for art literature! So many of these are inspiring and thought-provokingÖ I think Iíve just been convinced to start checking out book readings around me. See plenty more Ľ

Doodles Inspired by Lyrics



Do you ever get so into a song that you begin to visualize it? These sketchbooks are an intense mix of music, writing, and drawing all coming together to make something awesome. The artist is CaliDoso, a self-described quote freak whose imagination catches fire when the right words at the right time click into place.

Work Made Him Mental



I know absolutely nothing about Ben Thorley except for the following three things. One, he doodles a lot, like everyday all the time and the doodles are mostly of people's faces saying things, sometimes random, sometimes completely relevant. I love them all. Two, he photographs them in weird lighting with odd Hipstamatic photo frames. That part, I'm not a big fan of. Three, he comes from Manchester (UK).

Follow him on Twitter, it's where I discovered him.

September's Guest Contributor:
Lee Crutchley

You know him as the author of Quoteskine, a book of drawn quotes, lyrics and clever word play, and for the month of September you'll know him as our blog's guest contributor.

Lee is an up and coming illustrator in the UK that's tirelessly working to "make it" as a freelancer. He runs an incredibly beloved tumblr blog, but plans to step a bit out of that role this month to post on Doodlers Anonymous about the people and things that inspire him.

You can stalk him on twitter, visit him at leecrutchley.co.uk or simply welcome him to the site in the comments below.

Giveaway: Quoteskine, Vol. 1

A book of quotes, lyrics and clever drawings on the topics we all love to hate or hate that we love. Lee Crutchley makes drawing fun again and we've got 144 pages to prove it.

Lee is a doodler, and he's been one since the age of 14. He's been posting drawn words on his tumblr blog for the past couple years and many of us have turned fans of the quirky, often comical and very relevant sharpie scribbles. Now they've been published into a book and we've got a signed copy for one of you to keep.

To play along, leave a comment below with your favorite quote from a movie (don't forget to also credit the film). We'll collect them all into a hat and pull one lucky winner. Comment by Thursday, January 5th and we'll announce the winner the next day.

Giveaway: A Hand-Drawn Portrait of You by Jamie Tao

That's Okat. You may know him as the founder of Doodlers Anonymous. His dark disheveled hair, crazy full beard, distinct eyes and nose - I love capturing it on paper. Like he said, "It's like looking in a mirror, but better."

A face says so much. Ever since I can remember, I have always loved drawing them. My most recent project has been to combine my two favorite things - face and type - to portray a person and the essence of who they are.

This is where the cool part comes in. I'm doing a giveaway. I want to draw you.

For the chance to win a 9"x12" signed, hand-drawn portrait of you, all you have to do is leave a comment below with a quote or phrase that best describes your personality. We'll pick one winner based on the quotes submitted. (This quote/phrase will be incorporated into your portrait.The winner will also have to send us a photo of themselves.)

The winner(s) have been chosen!

With over 70 comments, it was difficult to choose just one winner, so instead I chose two. Good on you. :) Congrats to Josh LaFayette ("My favorite hobby is breakfast.") and Ellie Kneeland ("...like an octopus on roller skates"). Please send over a close-up photo of you so I can see all the details of your wonderful faces.

Thanks for everyone's participation. What a fun way to get to know our members!


And keep on the lookout! We're making these hand-drawn portraits available for purchase in our shop very soon, so you can order your very own.
