This Artist Takes These Silly Doodles And Makes Them...Awesome.
These are raised from the inane to the sublimely insane!
David Jablow is a multi-media artist. One of the more interesting things he's done are series based on mid-20th century "doodle pads:" notepads printed with suggestive pictures of women in provocative poses. These relics were intended for bawdy scrawlings, but Jablow takes them to a new level ENTIRELY...

These are just some of the examples of Jablow's art. He takes the "objects" of these silly doodles from isolation and portrays them as having agency. Cool stuff, right?Check out David Jablow"s website, flickr, or buy his book on Amazon. You can also find him on Facebook, and Twitter.
