The Incredible Illustrations and Doodle Art of Maahy



Chances are that a lot of you might already be familiar with the stunning illustrations of Maahy, an 18 year old artist from the Maldives who has nearly 16,000 Likes on Facebook. Over the years, this brilliant upcoming artist has always taken my breath away with his works, drawn in his bold, signature style. Full of intricate details, his pieces have many hidden surprises that reveal themselves on closer inspection.

Maahy is a self-taught illustrator, a dreamer whose passion and joy for art manifests itself in his pieces. Growing up in the Maldives, a country blessed with sunny skies and crystal clear seas, caused him to be inspired by the beauty of nature.

My art portrays the minimalism of black and white as well as the chaotic beauty and mystery of doodling, zentangles, streams of flowing lines and the fascinating scent and touch of coffee. I work intimately with ink pens and graphite pencils. For me, The key to finishing a detailed art piece is immense patience and perseverance. I always carry a camera with me to capture organic and  interesting patterns, shapes and designs I see every day. Whether it be on the road, in a mud puddle, the dancing clouds, or in a trailing foot print, I always keep my inspiration rolling.

Apart from undertaking commissions, the artist has also begun designing tattoos. You can buy select limited edition prints of his works at his online store.

Locusta Migratoria, 100 x 70 cm

As you can see in these images, her illustrations are incredibly detailed and gorgeously textured.

Continuous City: A Stunning Art Book and Graphic Novel About NYC


In his upcoming illustrated book, Continuous City, programmer and artist Brian Foo reimagines the iconic topography of New York City, being “told through a series of conversations and paintings.” One part art book, one part graphic novel, the book explores the story of two young New Yorkers, whose relationship has to contend with an alternate version of the Big Apple, which is continuously transforming itself in a mind-bogglingly vast permutation of shapes and sizes. The book will feature illustrations of hundreds of actual buildings from NYC, which Foo has painstakingly hand-painted himself.


Foo’s Kickstarter page for the book has already raised more than double the amount than that was being asked for the book’s printing. Depending on the amount pledged, the backers of the project will receive posters, art prints and t-shirts, in addition to the book itself. The artist has also conceived an interactive component to his project, through which you can create your own versions of the city.

You can watch this video to know more about the project.
