I’m so into these sketchbook spreads! Thomas Rouzière draws ordinary moments from every day life with an artistic flair that makes the mundane look insane. The usage of two colors is nostalgically reminiscent of looking through 3D glasses. It’s a unique style with a vintage aesthetic that creates cinematic imagery out of the bustle and mess of mundane tasks like cooking or studying at the end of the day. Aside from the fun retro colors, the contrast between shadows and white space is visually stunning. Incredible composition like this needs to be appreciated. I can't wait to see more marker sketches from Rouzière!See More »
Ryan Rhodes and Caleb Owen Everitt work as a company called LAND. I can't really say enough about these guys, they're good friends and rad dudes all around. Plus they make some of the coolest work I've seen in ages. Their sketches are very classic in nature and reminiscent of a simpler time.
These dudes do some great branding work, but my love for them lies in their hand drawn artwork and graphics.See more » See More »
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.
Oh wow. It's hard to believe it's been over two years since we printed our first coloring book. I still remember the day we set the pages loose and the kids went wild coloring them in (view the colorific photos). The look on the kids' faces were priceless, as they added so much brightness to the bold lines set by folks like Nate Williams, John Malta, Gemma Correll and 26 other artists.
We're thrilled to announce that we are finally ready to print our second volume. This is an open call for submissions, we want everyone to participate. The page count has yet to be determined, but we definitely expect it to include more artists and pages than our previous run (which you can buy here).
If your submission is selected, it will be featured on Doodlers Anonymous and receive credit on its respective page and in the table of contents. You will of course also get a copy of the coloring book mailed to you.
We are setting an aggressive deadline of January 31st. Your art must be one-color (black), sized at 8.5" x 11" and submitted to email@example.com as a hi-res JPG (300dpi). Now go draw.
We have another challenge for all of you and it comes with an excellent prize from the fine folks at Parka Blogs.
Close your eyes for a moment and think about your favorite book. Good. Now think about your favorite line from that book. Got it? Good. Now draw it for us all to see.
Draw it however you'd like: As drawn letters on a ripped page or as a doodled scene in your Moleskine. We encourage you to have fun and do your thing, just make sure to write out the title of the book and author somewhere in the drawing.
Good luck everyone, you have until next Wednesday at 11am Eastern to upload your submission. Read the complete guidelines and prize details here »
