Imaginary Friend

I recently discovered Aaron Brady's mind in my flickr stream and am in love with the photo play of his doodled characters and our real world. He drops them into the scenes so well that you forget you are looking at something 2D and that interaction is exactly what makes me wish they would just come to life.

The madness doesn't just stop there. He's got an entire collection of scribbles on book pages and a live doodle video shot from an overhead projector. I put a few of my favorite here for you to see »

When Inside Comes Out

I bought a book by Sabrina Ward Harrison titled "Spilling Open" a few years back. It transformed my approach to art. The book is, I believe, the first of a few of her published art journals. It is filled with loose, colorful, scribbles, doodles, paint strokes, hand lettering, photos, found objects and more all collaged together, forming very striking, energetic eye candy. More than pretty pictures, she bares her soul on every page with brutal honesty. Freeing inspiration spills out of her. Sometimes it is driven by triumph and other times, painful insecurity. Either way, the result is a more beautiful world. I highly respect her bravery as well as her talent.

Spontaneous Combustion

I was at OPPY's "Scribble Project", checking out the train car doodles when I saw Baysan Yuksel's submission. Shortly after, I decided to head over to her site and I'm so glad I did. This artist from Istanbul has a very spontaneous, fun, cut and paste, doodle style.

Doodles for Kids

"If you please," said the stranger, "draw me a sheep." That simple line from The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry is exactly what I think of every time my pen hits the paper. The book captures what we miss by being grown-ups and a good reminder not to look at everything so literally.

Having two kids of my own, I am at awe by what they come up with and even more inspired when I see their thoughts spill onto paper. The following are some drawing books and toys both my children use daily that I highly recommend; even though, a few markers and paper are just as effective.

Scribbles by Taro Gomi, Thumb Doodles Book by Klutz, Aquadoodle's Travel Pad or Doodle Mat, Write & Learn Letter Pad by vtech, Little People Doodle Pro and Crayola's Bathtub Crayons.

Disclaimer: Although the above list make great "kid" gifts, I play with them just as often as they do.
