A doodle a day

Sometimes you do strike gold down the dark mine shaft of the Internet.

The other day, I found this terrific blog called Alex Noriega Sketchblog. Alex says he's an illustrator from Barcelona "whose goal in life is to draw a doodle a day."

More than a doodle. I'm charmed by the lively drawings and the way they jump out of the bright acrylic paint in the background.

Especially nice is Alex's posting of May 21, in which he demonstrates step-by-step how he creates his paintings. He writes with a nice humorous, easygoing style as well. Check it out.
