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,, 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!

Our first show featuring portraiture is one of my favorites. We looked at self-portraits from the masters, and had some great guests (Justin Garnsworthy, Charlotte Love, Bill Sullivan, Kirsten Ulve) who showed us how they do faces. I hope you found How to Draw Your Face and 5 Ways to Draw a Selfie helpful, and enjoyed seeing the Museum of Selfies.

I love seeing everyone’s take on themselves, and just wanted to give a shout out to a couple of entries that featured different media or techniques: Colette’s use of collage, Dylan’s “Minecraft” pixel portrait, and Elena’s window drawing. I also adored Cameron’s expression, and seeing Henry’s haunting(?) eyes. Thanks to all who took the time to enter! We [heart] you!
