Every adult is a child, and every child loves cartoon. This article is dedicated to those who still find time to put their creativity onto paper in the form of cute, quirky, hilarious, deep and beautiful doodles. Here, they are represented by their Facebook pages!
1) DoodleoDrama: Run by 26 year old Mounica Tata, this page specialises in super honest, super relatable doodles about life! If you are feeling weird about yourself, do head over to find an artist and all her fans who feel the same as you! Mounica does both handrawn and digital doodles, yet has not had any formal training. This clumsy, yellow cheese loving bored student, like most of us began doodling in monotonous lectures (Bored students, rejoice!). She stays up feeling like Batman to continue doodling after her freelance day job. Keep telling us quirky and witty stories through your doodles Mounica! https://www.facebook.com/Doodleodrama/timeline
2) Daydreamerdoodler: Hop on to this page for almost psychedelic black and white doodles. Intricate designs, mind boggling patterns along with depth and message behind every drawing, this artwork is created by BSc student Nisshtha. These are the drawings that make you want to pick up pen and paper and test your own creativity. Nisshtha now wants to pursue graphic design (rightly so!). The artist began doodling randomly, but her doodles grew up with her and became more intense as she matured emotionally; a trait clearly visible in her work. Most of her drawings are instances from her own life. Head over to https://www.facebook.com/dddoodler/timeline to witness some of it!
3) Diya Ghosh: A talented artist, Diya is a first year BA student from Bangalore. This incredible girl doodles pieces of conversations as they are happening. She, like the other two has not had any formal training in art. To Diya, art is therapy. She displayed interest in it early on. She is no stranger to oil paints, water colours, acrylic paints and even charcoal. However, she reconciled with pens and notebooks. Diya does not like the chance offered by pencils to erase as she finds she would strive too much towards perfection in that case. With her belief in strong, bold lines she finds expression through absent words and numbers in her art. She takes it further by pondering over those absent things later on. To Diya, art is not a hobby or a career choice, art to her is herself.
4) DoodleMeThis Universe: Based out of Delhi, Pallavi is a graphic designer by profession. She has been doodling for 5 years, and has been working with dot-work for 2.5 years. She began when she was 18 years old, but it was only to rid her mind of swirling thoughts. She did not consider herself an “artist”, as she would draw anything at all. Little did she know, she was soon to fall in love with dot-work. Inspiration came in the form of an Australian artist who’s work she happened to see. 2 years later, Pallavi absolutely loves dot work and cannot stop creating art! There is no deep meaning to her drawings, they represent what goes on in her mind. It is a projection of her mood or of something she wrote (A woman of many talents!). Look for vacant spaces and lots of shapes in her drawings! Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/doodlemethisstudios
5) Art World of Pho-Pho-Pho: Run by Priyanka Gogoi, this page is filled with doodles that will leave you smiling from ear to ear. She left her job as as in-house counsel to pursue her masters in law, and in her own words the page began as “a side-effect of unemployment.” While she has held an interest in watercolours and human forms, her journey through doodles is still young. Tired of the seriousness people around her displayed, Priyanka adopted the cape and saved the day with her venture into doodling and keen eye for humour in even the most mundane of things. She uses colour, simple-linework and a generous serving of optimism to dish out doodles that will stand out among all the negativity of your Facebook newsfeed. Head over to:
