Instagram Daily Doodles

Hey guys!

I just wanted to fill you in on what I've been doing on Instagram recently. So far I've been posting pen and pencil sketches from my sketchbook of different things that you haven't already seen in the tutorials! Here are some examples: 

Sloth Pencil Sketch 
Waddles from Gravity Falls

In the future, I'll post these with the hashtag #dailydoodle. That way if you have a doodle you want me to see, I van search that tag and find it! 

So if you haven't seen my account yet, be sure to check out @doodlekat1official on Instagram! I'm still in the process of turning it into something cool, so this is your chance to suggest cool features I should include!

Thanks for your support! xo

Keep Doodling!

Upcoming Series!

Hey Guys!

I'm excited to fill you in on what I plan on doing next!  I know I've posted previous blogs about my brainstorming, and after some research and practice runs, I've decided it'd be best to add a new series of drawing videos to my channel. I've narrowed it down to what I think I can produce best, so now all I need is for you guys to tell me what you want to see!

To the left of this blog post you'll see a poll with all of the series options on it. Be sure to vote for whatever series appeals most to you, as it will then have a good chance of getting made for Doodlekat1!

To those of you who have already left me feedback through youtube comments, e-mails, instagram comments, and blog comments, I want to thank you all so much! I make my videos for my viewers interests only, so it's so neat to see that you find them useful and interesting enough to give your input!

And as always, if you've got a video request, be sure to leave a comment! Even if I start a series, I'll still post classic black & white tutorials frequently!

Thanks again & Keep Doodling!

February New Videos!

Hi guys!

So far this February, I've been excited to share with you guys a ton of new videos! I've taken a lot of requests, which always makes me feel awesome to respond to your comments personally like that! (If you have a request, make sure leave a comment on my NEWEST Youtube video for the best chance of it getting seen!)

Also, the month is not over yet, and there's plenty more tutorials still on the line up! But before I get to that, here's a quick list of the videos that came out this month!

And here's a sneak peek for tomorrow's video...the title is:

So check back tomorrow at 12:00pm central time! It'll be live on my channel:)

Ipod Doodle & Requests!

Hey guys!

The new video for Thursday is a Cartoon Ipod, so if you haven't checked it out yet, here's the link :)

I've also got some news for you all...from now until Christmas any requests sent in (either through e-mail or comments on this blog post) will be made into a tutorial! (Of course, they have to be both draw-able and appropriate, which has been no problem in the past!)

I've been reading your Youtube comments as well, which I love to do and especially on the new videos, I've read every single one of them :). There's some awesome request ideas on there too so if you've commented recently, you're request is probably on the line up!

I'm excited for the next few weeks and all the new doodle ideas and I hope you are too!

Keep Doodling!

Feedback Wanted!

Hey guys!

I'm super excited about what's about to happen next. Doodlekat1 is going to feature some new categories of videos sometime in the near future! There's also going to be so many new things on this blog, like contests, features, giveaways, and so much more. I can't wait to start. However, I want your feedback!

Here are my current ideas. Now you guys know yourselves better than I do so I'm hoping that you'll fill me in on what you want to see the most. You can shoot me an email at or leave a comment on this blog post!

1.) Character Drawings: tutorials featuring characters from TV shows and more
2.) People Cartoons: tutorials with a ton of different hairstyles, outfit ideas, and backgrounds for girls and guys
3.) Sketchbook: sketching that goes beyond sharpie...colored pencil, marker, and/or regular pencil tutorials
4.) Cartoon Books: tutorials on how to create characters, create backgrounds, and self publish your own comic book
5.) DIY Tutorials: my favorite crafts and drawing related projects shown with artistic videography :)

I do realize that there are plenty more options for an art channel, and I am totally open to suggestions. This channel is all about what YOU want to see so let me know, because the directions are endless! :)

Again, if you want to e-mail me with feedback for my channel my email is or otherwise you can leave just the number of the idea you like best (or any other comments) in the comments for this blog post!

I'm excited about this, and I hope you check back soon for Doodlekat1's new direction!

Keep Doodling,

40 Thousand Subscribers :D

Wow, I could not be more excited right now. Recently, as I had just checked back today, the Doodlekat1 channel has reached past 40,000 subscribers! I cannot believe it. Seriously, it's so difficult to explain how something like this can mean so much to me.

I want to thank you ALL. I realize that Doodlekat1 is probably not a huge deal in your life, which is totally expected! But you guys check in for new videos, comment, request, and share my videos like I could never have asked for. It's truly incredible. I don't believe I deserve it whatsoever -- I just draw in front of a camera! But thanks to you guys this has turned into something. I can't thank you enough.

Now that I've got all that mushy stuff out of the way, I just want to update you on what's going on with my channel. For the next few weeks at least, you can expect videos every TUESDAY and THURSDAY! That's not saying that there won't be more in between then, but for now I just wanted to give you guys some days you could depend on, as many of you have asked for and patiently waited for.

Christmas is approaching so you can expect plenty more Christmas and winter themed doodles, but you can also expect plenty of other things as well! I've got some animals on the line up as well as something that's never been featured on doodlekat1 so I'm excited for that as well!

Here's a lineup preview in celebration of 40,000!

December 3rd (today!) : How to Draw a Cartoon Snowflake
December 5th: How to Draw a Cartoon Snowflake v2 (version 2)
December 7th: How to Draw a Cartoon Reindeer
December 10th: How to Draw a Cartoon Manatee

So as you can see, there's a variety already. I can't wait to check back and see what you guys think of the videos and what you want to see next from me for Christmas!

Thanks again so much! I'm so greatful for every single one of my amazing fans!

Happy 100th Video!

Hey Everyone!

I  completely did not notice, but How to Draw a Cartoon Cornucopia  has been Doodlekat1's 100th video! I'm so excited about this milestone -- it shows how Doodlekat1 is becoming a collection of doodles that cover a wide span of topics. I couldn't have done it without you guys, of course, who keep suggesting such creative ideas that my channel grows because of. It truly, truly means a lot!

I apologize for not having made a special video for this occasion. However I'll be sure to make it up in the future...Doodlekat1 is approaching a reinvention soon! Hopefully you guys will approve -- I'm out to find what new videos you will love.

Thanks again for watching and for making 100 videos possible! <3 you all!

Keep Doodling,
