Lackadaisy Expressions Boy, I didn't know what I was getting myself into when I started this. I've had requests for some sort of expressions tutorial dating back a while now, so I figured, "Sure! I can explain expression drawing...and it'll be way better than all those tutorials out there that are nothing but charts of generic expressions. Yeah! Um. Anyway, I found all I could really do was try to explain ways to teach yourself...and then add some pictures. Big Doodle Big sharpie doodle!

He decided to start a blog as a way of trying to find what he was doing wrong. He wanted to put on paper all that he had learned in life as simple as possible and try to see if what was happening around him made any sense.

Sharpie Art - Extreme Sharpie Artwork at WomansDay.com Nowadays, Sharpie markers come in more than basic black––they’re available in every color of the rainbow, and in just about every size and shape. They’re great for everyday labeling and organizing, but did you know that they could also be used to decorate everything from guitars to fingernails?

From a Lamborghini turned objet d’art to a wall mural, check out how different artists uncapped their creativity. Rev Your Engines George Ramos spent two weeks on this intricately designed Lamborghini––he used Sharpie markers to create the design and then topped it off with a clear coat of paint to protect the pattern.

22 Sweet and Surreal Illustrations Italian illustrator Alessandro Gottardo's beautiful, open and inviting illustrations have been featured in major newspapers and magazines including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, TIME, The Economist and Newsweek among others. He's won numerous awards including the gold medal from The Society of Illustrators New York in 2009. Gottardo's clever illustrations show us why a minimalist approach can go a long way in telling a story. By taking out all that's unnecessary and distilling ideas down to very basic forms and shapes, Gottardo makes us believe that complicated concepts can be illustrated in surprisingly simple ways. Love the sweet and surreal nature to these. Added: After we finished this post, we got in touch with Gottardo for an interview. Alessandro Gottardo also goes by the name Shout. "One day, maybe I will say things that are truly worth listening to, I will say things that belong to me only, and there will be no other way to listen to them EXCEPT looking."
