Behold the doodlegram

Tel Aviv-based illustrator Geffen Refaeli produces a drawing each day that combines elements from various images uploaded to Instagram by different users. The act produces some sweetly surreal results…

Refaeli’s DailyDoodleGram is inspired directly from images found in her Instagram feed, which she then posts on her own page.

Alongside the images, Refaeli then adds the names of the photographers whose work provided the source material for her sketch.

So the drawing shown above references these two images, below, taken by Instagram users ‘reabd’ and ‘lalisch‘.

Some of Refaeli’s pictures have as many as four Instagram sources, but brought together in her single drawing the constituent parts conspire to take on different meanings (there are plenty of drawings more odd than the one above).

The only stipulation on the work is that the referenced images were all taken or uploaded on the same day.

To date, Refaeli has gained 24,000 followers and uploaded nearly 300 drawings. Her Instagrams page is at instagram.com/dailydoodlegram (with prints for sale here), while more of her illustration work is at geffenrefaeli.com. Here are some of my favourite drawings from the last few weeks.
