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.
First, we appreciate everyone's patience. The team at Doodlers Anonymous all have full-time jobs (and families) and February proved to be a busy time for us.
That being said, holy crap, the quality and creativity of the submissions we received are beyond anything we expected. We got about 365 drawings and narrowing them down to roughly 50 will be the most fun we've had in a long time. I put together a quick little teaser video (watch above), so you get an idea of some of the amazing submissions.
Next steps: We'll email the artists whose artwork has been selected for volume two by March 31st. If you do not receive an email by that date, then unfortunately we just didn't have enough pages to print yours in this upcoming volume.
I love you all, thanks for making projects like this one come to life with such beautiful art. We are proud to be putting this together. Now go on, press play and enjoy the next 58 seconds.
In early September we asked you to join us in celebrating three years of DA by submitting a hand-drawn birthday card, the cherry on top being the ginormous giveaway of awesome prizes that was to be awarded to the submission that stood out among all the rest.
When the submissions came rolling in we were absolutely humbled by the amount of kind words and love the community had for Doodlers Anonymous. I speak for all of us here at DA when I tell you that we appreciate every single one of you for your participation and constant support through the years.
We received forty-something drawings and it was tough to pick just one. We loved them all, but when Julia Smelansky's submission (the styrofoam-dimensional doodle above) came through our email we all just instantly smiled. Big congrats to Julia from Israel for the win, it's well deserved. In regards to the runner-ups, we were supposed to pick just two, but were stuck of course, so we picked three. Congrats to Michelle Chung, Muxxi, and Tati Abaurre for drawing up such cleverness in your cards, with humor and relevance to DA.
This wasn't a competition, this was meant to be fun and to give us an opportunity to hand out some cool things from talented artists and brands that have become our friends over the years. We hope to make 10 times the friends in the coming years and we'll do our best to keep this going for as long as you keep coming back. Special thanks to Blik, Thumbtack Press, Kate Bingaman Burt, Bianca Green, Chris Piascik, Sandra Dieckmann and Anorak Magazine for the wonderful prizes.
