Illustration and Street Art


There are few things that inspire me more than illustration and doodling. Probably because the art it is not limited by the medium, style or content; and so; doodling breeds ideas. We etch on desks, scribble in notepads, scratch on napkins and spraypaint walls. It's one of the few arts that is a universal habit- we all doodle. Even accountants doodle. Perhaps on the backpage of a ledger to get their ballpoint pen ink flowing again, but still, it counts.


So having 8 odd billion artists to choose from I impressively managed to whittle the list down to my 11 favourite artists of 2012. Here is a collection (in random order) of my favourite people; illustrators, doodlers, street artists and sometimes all three:
