Doodle My Ride





Quick, to the Doodlemobile! It all started when Allison improvised a creative way to cover up some scratches on her boyfriend's car, which he didnít mind because he was making plans to repaint it anyway. She got a little carried away and kept doodling beyond the scratches, until she had sharpied the entire bumper in one night. Needless to say, the repainting plans got trashed and the car became Allison's new canvas. About 100 hours of frenzied doodling later, they now have the most eye-catching car Iíve seen in a long time.

Bonus! Click after the fold to see a time-lapse video of Allison at work, including funny peeks at what she does during her breaks from doodling.

Doodles in Incredible Stop-Motion





What can you do in 15 seconds? Rachel Ryle is able to create miniature stop motion masterpieces that are so dainty and so irresistible. I watched and re-watched, and like a magic act, I'm dying to know how she pulls this off, but at the same time just enjoy relishing in the wonder and gaiety of her art. She's able to articulate the joy in life's simple pleasures, from warm fall cider to traveling to bubble gum, in the most delicate, painstakingly-detailed and creative way.

Colors and Crowded Faces

The sketchbooks that immediately catch my attention are the ones that are brimming with color. There is something scintillating about seeing so many colors confined to such a small space. It feels like bottled rampage even if the subjects in the pages are meek.





Each of the pages of Valerie Choi's recent sketchbook is crammed with characters piled atop of each other as burst of color overtakes them. It makes me feel as if the pages will break apart and the colors and caricatures will spill over onto her desk like water does when it can no longer be contained.

Valarie has documented her sketchbook in progress in this short video, which you won't want to miss.

Doodles + Transparency Sheets = MAGIC



Aug(De)Mented Reality is a fresh video that's recently been getting passed along the internet, and for hella good reasons. Hombre_McSteez combines traditional cell animation with still photography from his iPhone into one of the most captivating videos I've seen lately. It's always super cool to see 2D drawings roaming the 3D world, but seeing the real objects and landscapes responding to being played around with is what really makes this video come alive. We couldn't resist sharing something this perfectly executed.

Follow @Hombre_McSteez on Instagram to see more animations weekly!

Get Lost in Helen Cann's Hand-Drawn Maps

I got introduced to Helen Cann's work via twitter the other day and was immediately side-tracked by her crazy detailed hand-drawn city map of Brighton (see above). It gets better, visit the map on her site and it comes complete with rollovers from both a local and personal history of all the nooks and crannies in the town's streets and avenues.



Also as immersive (and impressive) is the drawn map she did of the history of coffee houses that began in Exchange Alley (London), starting in 1652. Once again, you can rollover most anything on the map for detailed captions that are sometimes informative and sometimes quirky.

Helen's work is a beautiful nod to the analog world, as it's "...entirely hand produced, mainly in watercolour, coloured pencil, graphite and collage." I'm especially in love with this time-lapse video of her painting up Youthtopia.





You can find more of her works at: helencannfineart.com and helencann.co.uk

Member Spotlight: Alvaro Diaz-Rubio



What luck. Here I am digging around our website for someone to feature when I stumble upon the work of Alvaro Diaz-Rubio and quickly discover he's an incredible artist and illustrator from South Florida that actually studied right down the street from our studio. It's a nice coincidence when that happens.

Alvaro's art takes me back to a time of vintage comics and being 13 years old trading gnarly Garbage Pail Kids cards outside the mall's convenience store. It's clear he draws all day long and even claims he'll most likely doodle on the inside of his coffin. His illustrations have appeared in publications like the Village Voice, LA Weekly and the New Times. Help me welcome Alvaro to Doodlers Anonymous and you can always check out more of his work at his website, Operation Underwear.

For something extra special, scroll down for a great time-lapse video of Alvaro drawing a quirky rendition of his lineage.

Collaboration in Perfect Harmony



I cannot remember when or how I came across this video but I absolutely love it. I find myself coming back to watch it again and again. I have found in my own personal experience, that collaboration with other artists either works great or is a disaster. These two artists Supakitch and Koralie really pull it off flawlessly. Their work harmonizes beautifully. Everything about this video from the music for the way it is shot are perfect. The colors and the flow of the work is amazing. Such a great pairing of style.
