July's Guest Contributor: Greg Kletsel

DOODLERS! I'm really psyched to be July's guest contributor, and can't wait to share some cool/interesting/inspiring stuff with you over the next few weeks.

A little intro: I was born and raised in South Florida, studied graphic design at UF in Gainesville, and worked as a designer in Miami and NYC. I'm now a freelance illustrator in Brooklyn, where I share a studio in an old pencil factory with the awesome and talented Two Arms, Inc. You can check out some of my work here and here, follow my ramblings here, and my photos here.





I've always been drawn (pun alert!) to characters, and have been filling scraps of paper and sketchbooks with them all my life. My earliest drawings were of X-Men, Batman, characters from Saturday morning cartoons, Disney movies, action figures, basically anything I was surrounded by as a kid. I still pull a lot of my influences and ideas from that world, and I try to put the weird innocence of that time into my work. Everything I do really starts with drawing and keeping multiple sketchbooks going at once, and I think that's the best way to develop your style, ideas and vision as an artist.





One of the best things about working in this creative community is being surrounded by other artists who continually push you to grow and make better work. I plan on sharing some of these fellow makers with DA, and hopefully they inspire you as much as they inspire me. I'll also occasionally show some of my latest sketchbook pages, post-it notes, and whatever else I find relevant to you doodlers.





Thanks for reading, should be a fun month!

This stuff is awesome! So unique. I love the Hunter S. Thompson and the guy with the double face especially.
