No joke, I enjoy my kids magna doodle toy more than they do. If it's anywhere near me, there's no doubt it will quickly end up in my hands for hours. It's the perfect doodle toy. You can't save, you can't undo and you can't even partly erase. There's no room for accuracy or moments of hesitation. In fact half the time the tied-up stylus hardly reaches all corners of the board.
And that's exactly what makes it so great. I scribbled the above a few days ago and then I found some other great examples on Flickr. Enjoy, and make sure to go buy yourself one (even if the pitter-patter of little feet don't fill your home).
Not everything is lost, but it sure does feel like it. July has been a very slow month for Doodlers Anonymous, the slowest of all the months since our humble beginnings almost two years ago.
We are going through a transition of sorts. Lots is happening, but nothing is happening at the same time. We are working on upgrading some elements of DA, while adding new sections as well. It's all in development right now. Nothing that you can see until launch, of course.
It's been a long time coming and completely devouring up all of my free time. What's worse is that it's stealing my energy from keeping the current site alive and well with fresh content. And as each day goes on, it gets even harder to fall back into the routine of maintaining the current. I feel kinda lost.
I'll say this much, though. It will be well worth the effort. For those of you that keep coming back, a big thank you. Everyday I find new links from blogs and illustrators alike linking to Doodlers Anonymous. It's beyond encouraging.
And so this post is an effort to get myself back into the swing of things, while also showing off some great doodles from our members. For this entry I simply searched the word "lost" within the Doodlers Anonymous flickr group and happily discovered this handful of goodies. Keep it going forever.
