Doodle Art by Lei Melendres
You can thank deviantArt and Tumblr for elevating the medium of “doodle art” recently. Originally the low brow art concept never left the hallways and Trapper Keepers (yes, we’re old) of high school, but times are different. We already spotlighted doodle artist Kerby Rosanes, but fellow illustrator Lei Melendres has a similar aesthetic. Melendres’s art is a mixture of random elements, like robots and monsters, and he has a fun, overly-detailed style that doesn’t try too hard to dance outside the lines. He doesn’t try to elevate the doodle medium, instead he embraces and tries to perfect it. Check out Monster Battle Royale for a taste of his creative process.
