Monochrome Minimalism

Korean artist Daehyun Kim, AKA Moonassi, has mastered the art of elegance in simplicity. His drawings made with pen, marker, and ink are an exploration of his own identity over the years. He says, “There is no specific background or theory about the drawing. Each drawing is created based on my daily thoughts and feelings.” A simple explanation to match his simple art style." The concept of each drawing is something personal to the artist, because only he is aware of what state he was in when he created each piece. We could never know what it’s truly about. Even so, the series does not alienate the rest of us. It’s easier to become immersed and connect with what you’re seeing when you accept that you don’t need to search it for meaning.

Getting Sketchy Over Black and White Portraits

fashion model doodle

I’m enamored with Teo Codina’s spunky embellishments to photographic portraits of women. Her sketchy patterns stick to roughly drawn lines and shapes scattering over plain white backgrounds like artistic confetti. Well-chosen blocks of color over the model’s faces bring to life clipped images that were monotone before Codina’s sketchy patterns worked their inky magic. It’s a fun contrast between the stoic photographs, airbrushed to perfection, and Codina’s light-hearted doodle style running amok over them. To see more of her graphic designs and illustrations, follow @artistica on instagram!

Unsettling Black And White Dreamscapes

There are two types of reactions to seeing the grotesque: turning away or moving in closer. I am the second type, which is why I’ve spent so much time staring at Nicole Sofia’s illustrations. Bold and delicate shading coexist skillfully in this Argentinian artist’s warped dreamscapes. Versatile lines create a sense of gesture and motion overflowing with a raw sensuality that unsettles you with its fleshy, malformed anatomy. Manifestations of bodily insecurities, perhaps. If you follow Sofia’s linework closely you can appreciate what unusual paths the pencil took to create her own version of human(ish) forms in darkly oneiric settings.

Doodle With Your Dog

Memories from my childhood are a bit hazy for me, but I have a very vivid one of my mom scolding me when I was eight years old for drawing on my wall. I remember feeling very offended that she was being angry at me instead of noticing how well I had drawn that scene. This moment came to mind when I found Rafael Mantesso's instagram. I know a ton of people whose instagrams consist mostly of pictures of their pet, but Mantesso has taken it to a new level. Living in an empty apartment full of blank white walls and only Jimmy Choo (his pet bull terrier, not the designer) for company, this doodle addict couldn't control his itch to scribble all over them.

Wherever Jimmy decided to lay down for the afternoon, his owner would follow with black markers and draw amazing scenes around his dog. His doodles themselves are simplistic, but the ideas are clever and humorous in a genius way. So witty that Mantesso's doodles caught the eye of Sandra Choi, creative director of the Jimmy Choo brand. Charmed by Jimmy Choo the bull terrier and his doodle adventures, she approached Mantesso directly for a collaboration! My inner eight year old is wishing I could have told my mom about this when she said drawing on walls will only get me in trouble.

If you love Rafael and Jimmy's work, you can pre-order their upcoming book: A Dog Named Jimmy!

A Monochrome Moleskine

I am captivated by Vahid’s marvelous monochrome moleskine. It was no surprise for me to read that his illustration experience includes some projects in animation and cartooning, because the artist’s passion for it bleeds through into his sketchbook. My first impression of several drawings was that they seemed like paused frames in the middle of a movement. The boldness and simplicity of his illustrations, along with a story they seem to be suggesting, evoke ancient black-figure paintings with a modern spin. It’s a cool combination of sharp angles and soft curves creating fascinating figures that prove you don’t need color to breathe life into a sketch.

Funny Doodles That Never Fall Flat

Simple black and white doodles with a twist... or should I say a fold? HuskMitNavn is an artist from Copenhagen who draws in three dimensions. His black and white characters have a comical and nostalgic style, reminiscent of those old-timey cartoons we all used to watch. What takes them to next the level is the way the artist folds, rolls, and tears the paper in many different directions to create a scene. The simplicity of these doodles infuses them with a playful energy that takes me back to the days in my childhood when I could amuse myself by making toys from nothing but paper and a pencil—dolls, planes, telescopes, whatever I happened to accidentally sculpt a sheet into! It’s a good source of inspiration for doodlers who want to start thinking outside of the box.

Coloring Book Interview Series, #16: Annette Fernando

If you love oldschool film noir, I've got an artist you should meet. Annette Fernando's page left an impression on me when I first saw it, and continues to have a similar impact every time I flip through our coloring book. Her style is dark, dramatic, romantic—all the best elements of old Hollywood glamour. Read my interview with Annette to learn some cool stuff about the artist, such as how she taught herself to draw by copying comic books and recreating film stills!
