Amazing Illustrations Created Every Week on a Freezer Door

Every Friday, freelance designer Charlie Layton picks up a pen and starts drawing. But, rather than sit down at a desk or draw on a piece of paper, the Philadelphia-based artist turns his incredible illustrating talents towards the surface of his freezer door. The door, which is made out of the same material as a dry erase board, becomes a weekly art installation within Layton’s home.

When he realized that his fridge was actually a useable surface, Layton created his first picture, which later became popular after he posted a photo on Facebook. His friends liked what they saw and so the artist made the 20-30 minute process a weekly activity. You’ll see all kinds of familiar faces in his drawings, including Bob Ross, Darth Vader, and even Bumble the Abominable Snowman. While others decorate their boring refrigerator doors with magnets and postcards from friends, Layton covers his with all kinds of awesome and detailed drawings and, as a result, he entertains us all and makes each one of his visits to the kitchen a bit more interesting.

If you like this kind of art, you’ll want to check out Bill Taylor’s detailed dry erase recreations of Picasso and Lichtenstein, among others.
