Incredible Illustrations of Personal Experiences Expressed Through the Art of Notebooking by José Naranja

A lot of people do their best to document a trip and immortalize that moment through photography, videos, souvenirs, writings, but José Naranja does that through notebooking. To many who haven’t heard that expression, below you will see that this is one of the most aesthetically pleasing, interesting, and fun thing to do.

José is from Madrid, Spain. He has worked for many years as airplane engineer. As much as his job seemed very good in other people’s eyes, to him it was a it too technical. As the artist says, “Creative people need freedom to explore new paths.” Therefore, Jose started traveling, thinking, exploring and notebooking.

“When I’m traveling all parts match as an organized dance,” said the artist when reached out by Earthwonders. ” I’ve been filling notebooks all my life but it was in 2005 when I discovered the brand Moleskine and I used that pocket notebook with black cover and elastic rubber. I fell in love with that style and it pushed me to develop my artwork more seriously.”

The art in José’s notebooks is really fascinating. It is an enjoyable way for the artist to create new ideas and document experiences in an unique way. To him, notebooks are like teachers that often help him to see things more clear.

To many who would love to start doing notebooking in the way that José does, he shared with us a little bit about his working process that will probably come in handy for anyone who’s looking for a place to start. “I write and draw about everything, almost everyday. All topics are welcome in my pages. I write about experiences, useful information, dreams, inventions, ideas or whatever comes from my mind. My journal is a little space for freedom. Always with some humor. Pocket notebooks are the perfect format to keep that information together. They are always near and ready to be used. No battery, no digital failures. Just open them and write. They invite to think and compile knowledge.”

Innocent Children’s Coloring Book Turned Evil by Adults on This Group

Coloring books can be very meditative and fun. as a kid, we always played with them as our parents always bought them for us. Because somehow it enhances the children’s imagination and of course our parents wanted to keep us quiet for a few hours. without us doing our naughty things. However, I bet for each and every one of you out there coloring books remains one of the most favorite things to do.

Although this subreddit group thought differently. They created a group and named it corrupting children’s coloring books.

What they do is turning children’s color books into some salty jokes, let’s say more into an adult one.

These artists have taken cartoon images and corrupted them into malevolent yet hilarious versions instead. Although some are pretty gnarly, you have to admire the artists’ creative skill at adapting the templates. If this isn’t also art I don’t know what to tell you.

But to judge for yourself keep scrolling and write us in the comments which one is the most hilarious of all…
