We’ve got one more doodle bomber to introduce to you: Claudi Kessels. Claudi is a graphic designer and illustrator based in Amsterdam. You’ve “met” her before, in our 3 1/2 Questions interview, way back when we were featuring Lollygadoodling.
I’ve been a fan of her work ever since I happened upon her doodles on instagram, and her recent work fits in with the doodle bombing (doodling on magazine or newspaper photos) we’ve been featuring on KCD. What I love about her work is how whimsical and imaginative it is. Take a look at Claudi’s doodlebombs on vintage photographs:

One more reason why we heart Claudi Kessels! She made a special doodle download just for us: Veggie Doodle. To get your copy, just sign up for doodle club at the top of the screen.

Meet the Magical Doodle Bomber : mirrorsme
If you haven’t already seen mirrorsme ’s fantastical selfies on instagram, you’re in for a treat!
Norwegian artist Helene Meldahl, aka mirrorsme, doodle bombs herself in a mirror, transporting herself from her washroom into another world with her imagination and markers.
The Washington DC-based Helene, a “born doodler,” has taken social media by storm with her art — having been featured on The Today Show, Good Morning America, EllenTV.com, Buzzfeed, Huffington Post, and now, Kid Can Doodle!
Helene told Buzzfeed that her doodles evolved from lipstick messages that she often left on her roommates’ mirrors.
“At the time I was writing my bachelor thesis in entrepreneurship,” she said, “and I guess it was some sort of procrastination.”
The doodles are made with Posca pens (markers made with water-based paints) that wash off easily from the slick, reflective surface.
Looks like Ms Meldahl is also an aspiring actress, or a bit of a ham, perhaps? Either way, she’s having a blast doodling, and you can see why we’re absolutely enchanted by her magical pictures!
Follow her on instagram and see more of her doodle-bombs here.
