There are doodlers and then there are doodlers, and then there is Félix Decombat, who has taken doodling to a whole new level with both a website and a Flickr site full to the brim with some of the best lo-fi illustration we ever did see. The incredible variety of styles in the heap is testament to just how much talent Félix has, dabbling in comic book-esque imagery and fully fledged sketch-style work alongside chunky, bold or monochromatic variations.
We were especially taken with these images, some of the most recent additions to the overflowing saucepan that is his site. Created with vibrant shades of blue and purple and strong, solid lines, they suggest a hand that’s either incredibly strong at Microsoft Paint or very well adapted to contemporary means. Either way, we’re into it.
