His “doodles” are indeed a far cry from what most of us did in the margins of our school notebooks. His doodles are thoughtful, confident, and are indeed veritable works of art from a young and enthusiastic creative mind. His personal work is largely spontaneous and all done in ink.
That means no pencils, folks. He fills the pages of his sketchbooks with seemingly random streams of consciousness that, when seen as a whole, actually form cohesive stories and themes for the viewer. As he describes, “most of the detailed elements and characters in every composition are unplanned and drawn spontaneously following random themes from my daily experiences or inspired by things I love.” Today, he’s getting commissions left and right. Like this commissioned illustration as a tribute to the legendary Hayao Miyazaki.
(Below) He’s also starting to collaborate with creative agencies all over the world, he has an art book in the works, and he’s getting featured in various magazines and online publications on an international level. Very few people get a chance to achieve as much as he’s achieved in such a short period of time and, perhaps, the most amazing thing about Kerby’s work is that he’s just getting started. When asked if he had advice for other illustrators and aspiring doodlers, he had this to say: “Be patient…
experiment… follow your passions… sleep and sleep more.” Clearly it has worked for him and we can’t wait to see more from Kerby Rosanes.
