In this season of artificial green cellophane and pastel hyperbole comes the kind of challenge you've been waiting for. Leave the bunnies and chicks to the chocolatiers and doodle up some savagely creative eggs. No theme. No constraints. Just you and a carton of (fragile) possibility. You can draw on one eggshell or a dozen, just make sure you only upload one photo.
I'd like to thank the fine folks at DrawTop for sponsoring this ridiculously cool drawing challenge. They make an awesome product by custom cutting adhesive vinyl whiteboards that you can stick practically anywhere, including the backs of electronic devices like laptops and iPads.
Click for prize and participation details. Deadline is Thursday, April 5th, so go on and get to showing off your drawing skills.
Doodle on friends.
After the popularity of our latest drawn challenge, and fueled by the momentum of your amazing submissions, I went ahead and created a Tumblr feed that will live on for as long as we receive more doodles.
Be patient, I am still in the process of porting over all the submissions (over 70) that we've already received, but you can follow the updates and even feel free to participate with another doodle ad hack if you'd like. Find it all at doodle-bomb.tumblr.com and help us turn this into a fun little meme (hashtag #doodlebomb). And of course, feel free to pass the link along to everyone you love.
While on the subject, let me formally announce the winners of the Doodlebomb! showcase challenge. Congrats to Kathleen Dolan with the editor's pick grand prize and cheers to runner-ups Margo and Paz Bernstein, who will each be awarded a DA 2012 Calendar. Thanks again to UPrinting.com for sponsoring such a great doodle challenge.
Introducing... DA's first showcase challenge of 2012! What's a showcase challenge you ask? Well, it's only the best way to participate and show off your doodle skills. Plus, the winner scores some damn cool prizes.
And now for the details. It's simple. Just choose a magazine ad and doodle it up. Have a blast at the expense of the print advertising world. Deadline is Wednesday (February 22nd) at 11am EST, click for complete submissions details »
This is our most ambitious project to date -- almost a year in the making. It's the culmination of over 130 submissions, over 2,300 votes, and an infinite amount of creativity. We launch our 2012 DA Calendar with overwhelming pride, not only in the beauty and originality of the artwork, but in the fantastic support of our community. We truly could not have accomplished this feat without you, our supporters and friends.
If you love what we are doing at Doodlers Anonymous, help us fight the good fight. Buying a calendar not only promotes independent artists and helps to support this website, but more importantly, saves you from those overcrowded malls this holiday season.
Maybe there's something to be said for order, but not by me. I prefer unpredictability and play.
One of our favorite showcase challenges has gone from concept to creation—from doodle to wall decal. The graceful disorder of Camila León's illustration will surely ensnare you, as it has us. (We recently installed it at DA and loved it so much, we moved half the studio furniture around just to better showcase it.)
"Irregular Mesh" is as delicate as lace; but its color, a fierce and unapologetic fuchsia, is roguish and saucy. The abstract design and popping pink color is so sexy, it will make you blush. Apply to any wall (click to buy), and -- voila!-- instant verve and moxie.
It was neck and neck until the closing bell, and when the smoke cleared two submissions were left standing at an even 76 votes.
Unfortunately there can only be one winner and so the team and I were left to make the call. After endless debate, DA's editors have voted Nata Metlukh as the winner of the October Calendar Draw by a vote of 2 to 1.
Congratulations to all our participants! Your submissions were inspiring. Now go on and get ready to draw December, because for our final showcase the editor's at DA will make the final pick from the top three voted submissions.
Our calendar project is coming to an end. We have amazing invited artists on board and a slew of prior showcase winners. We're down to the wire, in the final stretch, wrapping it up... you get the idea. So if I can make a humble suggestion, you know, friend to friend: hurry the heck up! Get involved by following three simple steps: (A) Doodle up the month of October 2012 (B) Submit your artwork (C) Pat yourself on the back and high five friends.
Seeing the calendar come together is so much fun, it feels wrong. Muahaha… I love it when a plan comes together!
P.S. For those of you new to DA, welcome! You can learn more about the calendar and how to participate here.
