Today, I want to share with you 10 more fun, crazy, and uncommon things I have drawn on. When I was gathering my photos for my post 10 Fun Things To Doodle On, I realized I have doodled on lots of things. So here is a list of more things to doodle on and a little bit about each one.

1. Toothpick

I took a Micron pen size 005 to the thickest toothpick I could find, and my teeth have never been the same.

2. Mannequin

A friend of mine bought a bunch of mannequins from a clothing store that was closing down. I spray painted a female one with silver then doodled all over it. If you walked in while I was drawing on some parts of this piece…it would of been awkward. Ah the things I go through for art…ha ha ha.

3. Apple

After drawing on a banana, it was only natural to draw on an apple. The shiny surface of the fruit made it very easily for the paint markers to do it’s thing. A doodle apple a day…keeps the sanity away…muhahaha.

4. Teapot

I found myself at an estate sale searching for something I can draw on to donate to the Union City Historical Museum, and this teapot found me. The kind people of the estate sale didn’t even charge me anything for it…I think it’s because I said it was going to be in the local museum. Maybe I should say that more often.

5. Vinyl Record Sleeve

I was hanging out with my girlfriend at a used book store, and stumbled upon shelves of used vinyl records for about $0.50 to $1.00 a piece. So we went through all the records looking for the best ones suited for doodling. This one was my first one and one of my followers, Turtle Candace, quickly emailed me and bought it when she saw it. Thanks Candace!

6. Vinyl Toy

This doodled up Munny was one of the earliest pieces where I drew on objects. It taught me a lot about how to draw on curved shapes and hard to paint marker places.

7. Bike

A friend of my curators, really wanted me to doodle on her white bike. So one Sunday she stopped by with her bike and commissioned me to doodle on it. It now matches her car’s license plates! Thanks Turtle Laurie!

8. Ketchup Packet

My fellow artist isketchupp on Instagram suggested/challenged me to draw on ketchup packets. So I did.

9. Rock

I don’t remember what compelled me to draw on a rock, but I do remember it being fairly fun and easy. Turtles Rock!

10. Hotel Fire Escape Door

Thanks to fellow artist, Gun-Woo-Pak, for asking me to draw on a wall with him at the Hotel des Arts in San Francisco. I ended up drawing on the fire escape door, and it actually appeared on Anthony Bourdain’s The Layover: San Francisco for about one second.

What fun, crazy, or uncommon thing would you suggest to draw on?

Custom Doodle TOMS Shoes

April 12, 2012

Today, I shipped some custom doodle TOMS to Turtle Pam. Turtle Pam commissioned me to doodle on some TOMS shoes, and although I was familiar with the brand…I never doodled on them before.

Here was how my creative process went:

1. Doodle -Black Extra Fine Point Decocolor Paint Marker
2. Sew tag – Thanks to Vianca for sewing Turtle Wayne label onto the shoe
3. Spray coat -Krylon’s Low Odor Clear Finish
4. Photo – iPhone 4S camera
5. Video -imovie app and YouTube

If you are interested in commissioning me to doodle a pair of shoes for you or anything else…email wayne@turtlewayne.com and we can talk about it. Peace!

Late Night Art Session

April 11, 2012

I didn’t know what to expect at the first Late Night Art Session at Paddy’s Coffee House Hosted by &THEM Collective, but I was excited!

&THEM made print outs of my turtles and JToddO’s artwork for people to color and draw on.

There was a DJ filling the air with hip hop music as everyone drew, drank, and talked.

I got to draw on one of the counter displays with a window marker!

My bunny and her good friend worked on their crafting stuff.

I brought my button machine, and helped people make some custom pins!

I made these T-Rex buttons.

Some people that got a hold of the turtle print outs and art supplies crack me up.

I got to see some of my favorite artists in the Bay Area too…like Basic Lee, Nick Trujillo, JP Neang, and Laura Ho!

It was a fun night of meeting new artists and people, and seeing old ones too. It’ll probably happen again, and maybe when it does you can come join us!


Today, I made another time lapse video! This time with micron pens and colored with prismacolor markers.

Hmmm, what should I time lapse next?

Today, I doodled outside…and used my iphone to capture it all.

This was my first time doodling outside on the ground, and recording the whole experience. This is how the turtle process went:

1. Used “Motion Cafe” app and set it to take a photo every 5 second
2. Used “iMovie” app to rotate the video
3. Used “Splice” app to put it all together (titles, video, photos, and music)

Overall it took about 2-3 hours, but at least half an hour was waiting for the iMovie app to install on my phone. I hope to get better making videos of my doodling adventures, but if not…at least you can check this one out. Thanks!
