Step into the world of Kerby Rosanes and his doodle art, which seems to have a life of its own.
A couple years ago, doodle art was all the rage. Everyone was doing it. You don't really need a bachelor of fine arts diploma to doodle. But one stood out from the rest.
Hailing from the Philippines, Kerby Rosanes was just a graphic designer who simply found a portal to escape the everyday stress from work through doodling. It all started after a work-weary Kerby got home after a busy night at work. Doodling then became his stress relief. I know right, ‘doodles’ (these people and their so-called doodles I can't even draw a decent circle).
This personal hobby soon grew out of proportion and turned into a full-time thing He's now living the dream of many—to get to do something he loves for a living.
It doesn't matter if you see an artwork in the big picture or in detail. Kerby's works are the best of both worlds. Altogether, you see the whole thing and it's majestic; a closer look and the details will astound you.
In most of his sketches, he uses Uni Pins in all sizes available and the occasional Sharpie marker on his trusty Moleskine sketchbook.
He's actually one of the artists Gabriel Picolo, an artist we've featured before, looks up to.
Kerby finds inspiration in everything. Be it a tattoo he saw on somebody on the street, a TV show, or a pop culture icon. He can take something out of its comforts and make it more interesting than it really is.
Apparently, Kerby is an Attack of the Titans fan.
His creativity knows no bounds.
Especially loved these Joker doodles of his.
Kerby mainly uses Uni Pins in all tip sizes on a standa
Here are some of Kerby's sketches during some of his travels.
“I chose to quit my day job and pursue the one that is close to my heart—best decision of my life so far,” he tells Inquirer PH.
So far, he's released a colouring book Animorphia and a sequel is on the way. Things are looking up for the young artist.
