A Story Behind Each Drawing

Miguel Herranz (aka freehand) is an Urban Sketcher with an incredibly detailed hand and a complementary story to go along with each sketch. The stories range from memories to the people, places and things he comes across. Below is a snippet of his text for the drawing above:

"…I keep on drawing... I wonder what happens behind the third window of the second floor on that brick building... I imagine a filter that tells me with some color the places where people laugh joyfully, with some other color where they shout angrily, with other where they make love, where someone just died... I know I'm drawing all this."

It's a must that you take the time to read the captions behind each drawing. You will fall in love not only with his skilled hand, but how he describes what he sees.

Drawn Narration

I love these story-driven artworks by Dave Zackin. Of course it's the colors and bold lines that first catch my attention, but then I quickly get caught up in the hand-lettering and drawn narratives. I'd gamble to say that even the most humdrum day in my life would look fascinating if documented like this.

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.
