Before we close out 2014 and set out to make 2015 another amazing year, I wanted to quickly thank our community of friends, fans, readers and artists that make Doodlers Anonymous such a thriving community of inspiration, creativity and art. We plan on making 2015 kick ass. Stay tuned...
Now on to the good stuff. This year we highlighted hundreds of artists, projects and artworks (you can revisit the complete archive here). As a short recap, I'm featuring a few of the more popular and memorable ones below (click their titles to read further about each).
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. It’s 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.
As one year comes to a close and another is set to begin, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of our friends and readers that visit the website, participate and support Doodlers Anonymous. You keep our community thriving and make it a daily inspiration.
That being said, we've highlighted hundreds of artists, projects and artworks in 2013 (you can revisit the complete archive here). As a quick recap, I'm featuring a few of the more popular and memorable ones below (click their titles to read further about each).
Enjoy and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
