Magical Doodle Vines

Like a song I could listen to over and over, I’m stuck watching Pinot’s vines on repeat. This Indonesian artist’s channel is full of speedy process videos that are are an absolute delight to watch. It’s more than just watching him draw, though. Pinot always starts from scratch, beginning with a blank paper and telling fun visual stories along the way. Many incorporate elements from the world around the paper, making doodles that literally come off the page. It's amazing to think of how challenging it must be to not only draw and record these concepts, but to have only a few seconds to execute them. Each one is like watching a magic illusion unfolding before your very eyes!

Strangers Drawing Strangers

You walk into a place and someone takes a Polaroid of you. You write down your name, your Instagram handle, and your hidden talent down on a card. Then you pick an envelope out of a drawer and inside it is a Polaroid of a stranger along with the same card you filled out, but with their information. Polaroid in hand, you head to an art table fully stocked with everything you could needómarkers, pencils, crayons, scissorsóand you start drawing the stranger. When you finish up, your art and the polaroid are displayed together on a wall amongst dozens of other portraits. Eventually, you will come back and see that someone else has drawn you and placed your potrtait in the gallery.

This was the basis of "Strangers Drawing Strangers," an interactive art installation held by Airbnb and Ivan Cash. The idea sprung from another project by Cash called "Selfless Portraits", in which he invites strangers from around the world to draw each otherís facebook profile pictures and exchange them online.

In the video you see art ranging from childish drawings in crayon (drawn by an actual toddler) to beautifully detailed illustrations by practiced artists. I love the ones that added extra flourishes to their portraits, little details that werenít in the polaroid such as putting the person in a funny pose or adding in a prop (like the guy with the microphone). If youíve ever been to a big film festival you know how hectic the schedule is, with non-stop screenings and events being held at the same time across many locations. The fact that the event took place at this yearís Sundance Film Festival gives a special connotation to the portraits because it adds the implication that a stranger paused what they were doing, possibly re-arranged their schedule a bit, just so they could take the time to draw you.

Alternate Doodle Universe

Usually sequels arenít as good as the first, but thatís SO not the case here. I wrote a post about Aug(de)mented Reality a few months ago and now itís back with a vengeance. I canít imagine what people think Marty Cooper (or Hombre_McSteez as he goes by online) is doing when they see him sitting in front of a stop sign, completely concentrated on it and holding up transparency sheets every so often. Itís so cool to see artists making doodles on the spot when inspiration from their surroundings hits them!

This is a compilation of animations he posted on instagram, so follow @Hombre_McSteez to keep up with his newest stuff.

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!
