There is something absurdly creative about Bill Mayer's sketches. He took postal stamps of historical figures and sketched scenes around them, capturing the personality of the subject with simple strokes. Call it a fringe event, but I was so engaged in each one, that the remainder of the open white space drew itself further in my mind. Kinda freaky really.
I discovered Alice's work during our Doodlebomb open call. Her submission transformed a fashion model into a surreal creature standing against tentacles and stars.
It was subtle and delicate, but it definitely caught my attention. As did the rest of her sketchbook, where there's lots of flowing long hair, female bodies and sometimes even a hint of watercolor. She lives on flickr and alicesavage.eu Welcome to DA, Alice.
Have you seen Andrea Wan's Mini Journal? well, if you haven't, I have to tell you it is a must in your next inspiration search. She made a mini journal containing a collection of 4"x6" drawings inspired in thoughts and ideas of her own. Her project is full of creepy and adorable images. One of the best sketchbooks I've seen lately. It is a beautiful project made to be seen and enjoyed page by page.
Ladies and gentlemen, I'm your chief flight attendant today and on behalf of our Captain, welcome aboard Doodle Flight 58, non-stop service to the Canary Islands. In this flight you'll experience Natalie Ratkovski's travels to Gran Canaria.
At this time, make sure your seat backs and tray tables are in their full upright position. Enjoy your flight!
Portraits made with oil paint, that is what Soey Milk (an artist from Pasadena, California) is best known for, but I wanted to look beneath all of that and showcase the drawings you'd find in her sketchbook.
I think you'll agree, I found them to be just as dramatic and seductive.
Akira Horikawa has been drawing quirky images from his mind, dreams and emotions since 2007. He's filled quite a few pocket-sized sketchbooks and is now posting them on tumblr for your viewing pleasure. There are no gimmicks here and hardly any color to be found, just simple, unsteady lines that form re-interpreted and oddly fascinating compositions.
