Here are some recent findings of Doodlers Anonymous out in the wild…
The winter issue of Anorak Magazine has been published. It features tons of colorful and playful illustrations around the theme of books, and best of all, there's a spread (see above) highlighting some of the wonderful submissions* to the Doodlers Anonymous Balloon Showcase. Go on and get yourself a copy »
Also noteworthy is this sweet review of our website, written and drawn by Emmi Ojala for SUPERSWEET Magazine. So many good quotes in there…
"On the DA website, creativity gets contagious and you’ll be dying to draw before your mouse has said “click” (or if not, be happy for having one addiction less)." -- The Cure To Those Suffering For Art
Thanks to all of you for the love and support. Doodle on…
* Print Correction: In the Anorak Magazine spread there's a submission that was incorrectly credited. The doodled balloon of an Owl Ornament was drawn by Cheryl Smith. Hoot, hoot, sorry for the misprint.
Showcase three was epic. You all came out to play this round and the end result has left us speechless. From the winning portrait of a balloon family by Andrea Armstrong to Katie Wall's orange balloon fish.
We are beyond delighted with every single one of the thirty-two total submissions and have decided to try and squeeze in almost half of them into the next issue of Anorak Magazine. Congratulations to Bianca Hegedus, Lori Alrawi, James William Pezet, Belinda Suzette, Jenni Sparks, Ellie Ennay, Muxxi, Addison James Eaton, Katie Wall, Cheryl Smith, Cale and Emereauldine Eliseo, who have all been shortlisted to appear alongside the winner.See More »
We've got a fun challenge for you this week and it comes with a deliciously awesome prize. Take a deep breath, blow up a balloon, and sharpie the damn thing like it's nobody's business.
Then just take an incredible photo of your blown up markings and hope to get many, many loving votes, because the winner of Showcase #3 will get a year subscription to Anorak Magazine (4 issues), plus a happy activity book.
Ladies and gentleman, that's not all. Once all submissions are in, the editors of Doodlers Anonymous and Anorak will also award our favorite balloon doodles with a feature in the next issue of Anorak Magazine. Take note folks, this here is one activity you won't want to miss out on (deadline October 20th @ 11am Eastern). Read on for submission guidelines and more »
