100 Houses for Shelter

My buddy Paul Roberts is curating the 100 Houses exhibition, which brings together 100 image-makers, from illustrators to street artists, in support of housing and homelessness charity: Shelter. Each artist is given a 10-inch square and the theme "house" to come up with an original piece of art.

The results will be on show in Bristol's Tobacco Factory from November 16th-30th. All of the pieces will be for sale, and hopefully we can raise a significant contribution to the ongoing work of the charity Shelter, which helps people to find and keep a decent home.

A Nice Cup of Teagle

I've been getting really into comics lately, and that's probably one of the reasons that Jack Teagle is quickly becoming one of my favourite artists.

I'm told that envy and jealousy are terrible and pointless feelings, so I try my best to lock them away when I look at Jack's work. It would be easy to envy the way everything he does is awesome, or be jealous that he completely nails that elusive combination of a simplistic style and bold colours, or cry that it all seems so effortless (although I'm sure it's not). But I've found the best thing to do is let the awesome insanity of his work whisk you away into his little world for a while, and just be glad that it exists.



Jack seems to churn out work at a crazy pace, and he's been updating his tumblr this week with these new paintings. They're part of a show called Lost Plot at Here Gallery in Bristol, UK. The show opens on September 7th and runs right through to October 6th.

Lost Plot also features work from Liam Barrett, Rose Robbins and Simon Daly. If you'll be in or around Bristol in the next month you should definitely check it out.

TTYL, KIT!*

Hey everyone! It is the last day of the month, and that means this is my last post as guest contributor for August!

It has been a lot of fun writing about comics, drawings, painted books, and more. It has also been great interacting with the DA community at large, and will be something I continue in the future. So, look around for me!

Before I go, I wanted to share with you a couple pictures of my work, all in progress stuff. I work with collage and embroidery, and really love interior scenes (remember how I mentioned "slice of life" in my last post?). So, here’s a sneak peak of a series I will be launching in a few weeks with the site Buy Some Damn Art. Check it out - Kate Singleton curates lovely shows with original art you can afford.

*Talk to you later, keep in touch!

Dollar Dollar Bills

It's not often you can slip someone a single dollar bill and get something awesome in return. That $1 tip might get you a casual nod from the cute bartender. Or maybe an ice-cream cone on your way home from work?

Or... how about this. You give a one-dollar note to 100 New York artists and see what they do with it. That's what the gents behind the "One Hundred Dollars" exhibition did. And don't get me wrong, I love an ice-cream cone as much as the next kid, but this currency art is a little more special for a dollar, don't you think?

The exhibition is on until August 9, if you're in New York. Otherwise, just take a peek at our favourites here. You don't even have to slip us a buck.

Showcase #15: Bookmark Doodles

At Doodlers Anonymous we love books. We love the texture, ink, and creases of the printed word — the tactile deliciousness of thumbing, highlighting and devouring pages. We love books that weigh heavy in our hands.

This drawing challenge is a tribute to traditional paper books and the act of reading. The two winners of this challenge (yes, there will be two!) will have their artwork fashioned into DA bookmarks. We challenge you to doodle the front-side of a bookmark, and we'll use the back to promote and credit you.

Special thanks to the fine folks at PrintRunner.com for sponsoring this showcase. Check them out for all your printing needs, including: business cards, stickers, postcards and more. There's no specific theme this time around, although keeping it book or reading relevant is encouraged. We're just looking for some delicious art and something you'll be proud of. Go and get your doodle on, complete details here (deadline May 31st).

Showcase #14: Egg Draw

In this season of artificial green cellophane and pastel hyperbole comes the kind of challenge you've been waiting for. Leave the bunnies and chicks to the chocolatiers and doodle up some savagely creative eggs. No theme. No constraints. Just you and a carton of (fragile) possibility. You can draw on one eggshell or a dozen, just make sure you only upload one photo.

I'd like to thank the fine folks at DrawTop for sponsoring this ridiculously cool drawing challenge. They make an awesome product by custom cutting adhesive vinyl whiteboards that you can stick practically anywhere, including the backs of electronic devices like laptops and iPads.

Click for prize and participation details. Deadline is Thursday, April 5th, so go on and get to showing off your drawing skills.

Doodle on friends.

Doodlebomb! Has A New Home

After the popularity of our latest drawn challenge, and fueled by the momentum of your amazing submissions, I went ahead and created a Tumblr feed that will live on for as long as we receive more doodles.

Be patient, I am still in the process of porting over all the submissions (over 70) that we've already received, but you can follow the updates and even feel free to participate with another doodle ad hack if you'd like. Find it all at doodle-bomb.tumblr.com and help us turn this into a fun little meme (hashtag #doodlebomb). And of course, feel free to pass the link along to everyone you love.

While on the subject, let me formally announce the winners of the Doodlebomb! showcase challenge. Congrats to Kathleen Dolan with the editor's pick grand prize and cheers to runner-ups Margo and Paz Bernstein, who will each be awarded a DA 2012 Calendar. Thanks again to UPrinting.com for sponsoring such a great doodle challenge.
