Over 40 Hand-Drawn Birthday Cards

In early September we asked you to join us in celebrating three years of DA by submitting a hand-drawn birthday card, the cherry on top being the ginormous giveaway of awesome prizes that was to be awarded to the submission that stood out among all the rest.

When the submissions came rolling in we were absolutely humbled by the amount of kind words and love the community had for Doodlers Anonymous. I speak for all of us here at DA when I tell you that we appreciate every single one of you for your participation and constant support through the years.

We received forty-something drawings and it was tough to pick just one. We loved them all, but when Julia Smelansky's submission (the styrofoam-dimensional doodle above) came through our email we all just instantly smiled. Big congrats to Julia from Israel for the win, it's well deserved. In regards to the runner-ups, we were supposed to pick just two, but were stuck of course, so we picked three. Congrats to Michelle Chung, Muxxi, and Tati Abaurre for drawing up such cleverness in your cards, with humor and relevance to DA.

This wasn't a competition, this was meant to be fun and to give us an opportunity to hand out some cool things from talented artists and brands that have become our friends over the years. We hope to make 10 times the friends in the coming years and we'll do our best to keep this going for as long as you keep coming back. Special thanks to Blik, Thumbtack Press, Kate Bingaman Burt, Bianca Green, Chris Piascik, Sandra Dieckmann and Anorak Magazine for the wonderful prizes.
