The Doodlers Anonymous 3-year

We've just hit three years old this week.

I want this to last forever. Being a part of Doodlers Anonymous is the most fun thing I do in my day. Thank you to every single artist that has ever inspired me and continues to. To all the fans, readers and doodle addicts that visit us everyday, thank you for being a part of something that I am so passionate about.

As a thank you, we are going to celebrate this milestone with a ridiculously awesome GIVEAWAY. It's so good that I am seriously considering cheating so that I may win.

If you want to play along, simply draw us a really cool birthday card (no vector art please). Scan it or take a good quality photo of it and email it over to us. The team and I will vote on the one we like best and award them with great prizes. There is also a strong possibility two runner-ups will receive prizes as well, so be sure to participate.

Click here to get complete details of what you can win, but in summary: a $100 Gift Card at Blik, $75 at Thumbtack Press, art prints by Kate Bingaman Burt, Bianca Green, Chris Piascik and Sandra Dieckmann, plus a year subscription to Anorak Magazine and the list goes on…

To participate: let us know in the comments below and email your submission to editor{at}doodlersanonymous{dot}com by end of day, September 20th and be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter to get updates and announcements regarding the giveaway.

GRAND PRIZE WINNER will receive all of the following:

A $100 gift card to BLIK Wall Decals

A $75 gift card to Thumbtack Press

An art print by Kate Bingaman Burt

An art print by Bianca Green

A letterpress print by Chris Piascik

An art print by Sandra Dieckmann

A one-year subscription (4-issues) to Anorak Magazine

…and some great stuff from our Doodlers Anonymous shop. Now go draw, but first help us blow out these candles. *Extra credit to those of you that spread word on your wonderful blogs, Twitter and Facebook pages.

Not sure I will be up to doing something on this occasion but I would like to say that I really really enjoy DA. It's opened up a another door in the house of drawing for me and I've seen a lot of terrific drawing I might not otherwise have seen, which I really appreciate since I don't get out much and have unfortunately little interaction with like-minded artists.

@everyone - All I can really say is that I'm humbled by all your responses and wishes. It is your love and appreciation (as well as those of my colleagues) that has made these first three years so fun at DA.

Thank you!
