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 »
Are you sure? Because after flipping through the last few years of your Moleskine I feel like I now know everything about you.
Loops! is a mommy living in Brussels and she fills her sketchbooks like a diary in living color. You'll see drawn pages of her family's travels, her kid's being sick and the generally overwhelming and loving life of being a parent.
She's captured three full years and it's incredibly inspirational to see her commitment to draw almost every moment out in full color with outstanding typography and doodling skills. Good for you Loops!, keep it going forever.
Sorry for the announcement delay folks, most of us here at DA were on vacation last week. You gotta do what you gotta do. :)
The good news is Miss Thereza Rowe has done the draw for her giveaway and picked two winners. Congratulations and high fives go out to: Alex and Tigz Rice.
Thank you for all who participated. And thank you again Thereza for being an all-around awesome person and contributor here at DA. We have thoroughly enjoyed your stay here. Come back and visit us often!
We have always wanted to create a coloring book that is one-of-a-kind. We did it and showcased it for the first time in Miami's first annual Family Day in the Design District.
December 12 fell on a Saturday. The Miami sky was filled with grey clouds and it was exceptionally windy. As we set up our tables, chalkboard and blown-up illustrations - papers flew, chalkboards fell over and the rain began to fall. All signs pointed to a frantic kind of day.
But moms, dads and their mini mes showed and as the sun peaked through the clouds, the crowd grew.
It was four hours of kids drawing and scribbling everywhere. There were many moments where I stood back and stared with amazement at the eager kids and colors scattered all over the floor.
Here are some pictures of the event. We look forward to a DA Coloring Book, Volume 2.
