Sunday Grins! A New Public Holiday

This month we've got a special round of Sunday Grins to share, featuring ten awesome doodlers hand-picked from our DA Flickr group. Let's call them the DA Dream Team! (said in a booming, stadium voice) Because... well, why not.

This week we asked them to propose their own spankin' new public holiday. Their suggestions include Buffet Day, Dress Like a Dragon Day, and suggested above by Jenni Sparks, "I'm Comfortable Pooing In Front Of You Day". Local governments, take note!

Dollar Dollar Bills

It's not often you can slip someone a single dollar bill and get something awesome in return. That $1 tip might get you a casual nod from the cute bartender. Or maybe an ice-cream cone on your way home from work?

Or... how about this. You give a one-dollar note to 100 New York artists and see what they do with it. That's what the gents behind the "One Hundred Dollars" exhibition did. And don't get me wrong, I love an ice-cream cone as much as the next kid, but this currency art is a little more special for a dollar, don't you think?

The exhibition is on until August 9, if you're in New York. Otherwise, just take a peek at our favourites here. You don't even have to slip us a buck.

Sketchbooks In The Wild

It's cool to see a lion in the zoo, absolutely. But to go on safari and spot a lion prowling around in the wild is undeniably cooler! Same with sketchbooks. (stick with me... I'm going somewhere with this...)

To see a scan of a sketchbook is one thing, but to see a sketchbook out in the "wild", in front of the parks and street corners where they were first doodled... even better! This is what artist Paola Gaviria Silguero from Buenos Aires does. She photographs her playful sketchbooks along with a different background, like a postcard of where she was for each page.

It also helps that her doodles are really great. Random puddles of colour, like being swept up in a street parade or a happy sugar-high! Ok now, the sketchbook safari begins...

My Really Loud Sweater Collection

Most of the DA crew reside in sunny Miami and probably don't even own a knitted sweater. Me, I call Melbourne home, and right now we're smack dab in the middle of winter. So turn on the air-con my Miami friends, this is a celebration of getting snuggled-up!

Sexy Hamburger

Sometimes when I eat out for dinner I get a bit overwhelmed with the menu. The waitress is tapping her foot while I ummm and ahh between the chef's special or an old favourite, or the risky but delightfully-coloured "drink special". I really cannot be buggered with all these meal options, may I just say "whatever" and you choose it for me? Please?



Anyhow. Here's a few freshly hand-picked culinary doodlings by Kyle Fewell from his blog Hello, this is food. No need to choose one. Just eat them all up.

Excuse Me Sir, Will You Please Vandalize My School Shoes?

Do you remember the art teacher you had in school? If not, then maybe you can take this one for a spin. His name is Todd Marrone. He's an artist who lives & teaches middle-school in Philadelphia. He says things like, "if God didn’t want me to draw on my students’ shoes, he wouldn’t have made them out of canvas". I wish he'd been my art teacher! How cool to come into class, learn a few things, then walk out with a custom paint job on your sneakers. Or binder, or hat, or skateboard. Or piggy bank...

One More Time, for the Cheap Seats
in the Back

Every weekend Joe List peppers his copy of the Guardian newspaper with cute, slimy, dorky creatures. He gives a face to every faceless object, and ensures that cranky dinosaurs in tiny bowler hats are given their front-page glory! With online news becoming the norm now, he might not have much longer to get these creatures down on actual newsprint, so we best make the most of it while we can, right?

Confession. We've actually mentioned Joe before. OKAT featured The Annotated Weekender on DA in 2009 (yep, that long ago...) but since you probably don't have the spare-time or the breathing apparatus to dive that deep into our archives, here it is again. There's over FOUR YEARS of new content for you to catch up on and giggle at.

Here are a few of my favourites. This was not an easy cull to make!
