Doodling isn’t just for school kids. It’s about discovery. “It’s a healthy way to let it all out, with no restrictions or external rules,” says Guy, a designer and illustrator. “You just go for it.” Every single page of his sketchbooks is packed with faces, animals, monsters, questions and squiggles. “Sometimes you’ll draw a face or a hand or a dog in a way you’ve never seen or done before and that’s always a good feeling. And sometimes you just make yourself laugh!”
Working for everyone from the Primrose Bakery to American Apparel, designing t-shirts, posters, record sleeves and wall murals, he’s a man of many talents. Did our sneaky peek at his sketchbooks in the It’s Nice That studio help us understand this intellectual giant? Well, maybe. But, as Guy says, “a good portion of my sketchbooks are definitely just crap dick drawings. Ultimately, can’t everyone enjoy a crude penis drawing?!”
