Open Call / Coloring Book Vol. 4

Once a year we open up the flood gates and collect submissions for our annual coloring book.

For those of you that are new to Doodlers Anonymous, this is one of our more popular times of the year, as our coloring books are unlike anything you've seen before. They feature 60 artists from around the world - some fresh novices, others seasoned veterans, all of whom share a love for the hand-drawn.

We want everyone to participate, so grab your pens and sharpies and get to it. If you're interested in participating, we've set an aggressive deadline that is fast approaching (October 7th, 2014), go here for the complete details Ľ



To celebrate the open call, we are discounting a combo-pack of our volume one and two coloring books by 15% (shop here).

Cultivate Our Garden





Editor's note: This entry is brought to you by our good friend and scribbler, Lisa Currie, who is also the author of two really awesome doodle books, The Scribble Diary and her latest, Me, You, Us.

Today I'm excited to share this bright, happy, hand-painted (!!) interview with artist Rebecca Volynsky. I asked her a few simple questions (via the above prompts) about her creative life right now, and she let her paintbrush do the talking.

How luscious are these two pages filled with bright plants and golden waves and endless coffee cups! It's like we all get a bouquet of wild flowers delivered to our desktops today. Hand-painted, of course. Thanks Rebecca!

Coloring Book Interview Series, #4: Maria Garcia



I've been a long time admirer of Maria Garcia's colorful and adventurous illustrations. Her drawings have a certain magic to them that makes memories of my favorite storybooks from when I was a kid start resurfacing. Read on to find out more about Maria and see how she colored in her own page from our third volume.

Coloring Book Interview Series, #3: Paulo Correa



Illustrations in our coloring books all have their own personality, that's what happens when every page comes from a different artist. One of the stand-out styles is Philippino artist Paulo Correa. His sketchbook is full of a cast of crazy characters and so much going on in every image that you'll miss half the details if you only look at it for a few seconds. Click below to read his interview!

Off the Canvas - Art on Recycled Paper and Wood









There is something alluring about art that exists off the canvas. Illustration on recycled, reclaimed, and natural materials feels approachable and tangible. And whether the art commands attention from the decaying paper, splintering wood, and corrosive metal or assimilates and weaves into the material, it is the history and texture of the material, the beautiful layer of story, that pulls. In honor of Earth Day, we hope you enjoy some striking pieces on paper, reclaimed wood, and recycled silk. Reuse. Recycle. Reinvent.

Type & Time: Drawn Typewriters



The sound is seductive: typebars striking ink ribbon; the bell of the carriage return swinging left. In my selective nostalgia, typewriters were never used by anyone except authors - typing stoically in a room with light filtered through plantation shutters, in the company of scotch glasses and a wastebasket of crumpled pages.The typewriter embodies a writing process that is hard and stark and dirty and mechanical. Itís a symbol of the beauty of process, the struggle of wordsmithing. And so my love for the typewriter is also a love for its aesthetic. I am giddy for illustrations of vintage typewriters, drawings where you can almost smell time and dust preserved. Here are some of my favorites.

First Things First

Hey doodlers! i'm honored to be a guest contributor this month.

I grew up in a small town in Texas, right outside of San Antonio. I was a weirdo, skater, tall and skinny son of a gun, who grew up during the 80's. I've done a bunch of things in my life, including being a lifeguard, cave tour guide, margarita mix bottler, art director, designer, publisher and collaborator. I now live in Austin with my girlfriend and two cats where I do things like make logos, album artwork, websites and murals.



I enjoy drawing on many different surfaces including paper, wood, glass and other things. My favorite way to draw is with no idea what mark or image will appear in the final work. I like to see what just pours out onto the paper.



I'm going to do my best to bring you some cool things to look at this month including some of my favorite doodlers from here in Austin and beyond! Maybe I'll share some sketches for projects I have in the works and maybe some good old fashioned Texas fun shots!



Thanks for reading, more to come!
