Road Art

Karen

I met artist Don Colley at NAMTA’s 2011 Art Materials World conference and trade show.  He was demoing at the Faber-Castell booth and happened to walk by ours during a break.  His work with colored pencils was so life-like it could practically walk off the page.

Don had used some of our larger datebooks for sketches because they lay flat.  I promised to send him a Webnotebook to sample, and asked him to let me know if he liked it.

I got this email from Don the other day: “Hi Karen, I recently finished drawing in the sweet little orange leatherette covered Rhodia web notebook you sent me. I took it on tour with me this Fall and got some fun pages.  Thanks again for the little book, it was well suited to cross country travel in planes and on buses. Happy Holidays.”

Please visit Don’s website – Buttnekkiddoodles-Drawing from Life in Chicago and Beyond.

Thanks, Don! Hope to see you at NAMTA 2012 in Orlando!

  1. How can you not love a guy who names his website Buttnekkiddoodles? Seriously, the name alone makes me smile. I’ll definitely give his site a look!

  3. Don’t know why, maybe it’s the way he captures everyday life, but I really like this chap’s art. Several of his drawings forced a quick smile. Thanks for pointing him out.
