Showcase #20

Draw Your Dream Class


Close your eyes, hop on our big, yellow imaginary bus, and let’s doodle our way back to high school. For showcase challenge #20, we invite you to draw the book cover from a class you wish you could have taken in high school. But we’re not looking for ordinary classes—make one up! Have fun with it, and show us why your creativity and drawing skills deserve an A. We’re excited to see what you come up with!



 
Submission Guidelines
 

  • As always, we encourage the hand-made. Use pen, marker, sharpie, paint, whatever, but no computer help.
  • Feel free to use color.
  • To be accepted, all submissions MUST be mocked up on the book cover template provided and uploaded as a JPG image (no larger than 2mb) for voting.
  • Upload your best, because you only get one submission.
  • Photograph or scan it.
  • One winner will be chosen from the top 10 voted submissions.
  • During the voting period, any fake votes that we discover will be deemed invalid.

DEADLINE: September 18th @ 4pm EST
 
Prize
 

The editors of Doodlers Anonymous will select one winner from the top 10 voted submissions. The winner will receive a $250 gift card to use at any Michaels retail locations in the U.S. and Canada.

"As a current junior in high school, I wish had this class. Teaching you all there is to know about fictional characters, whether it be in film, t.v., or books, what could be better? Not only would you get to show off some serious trivia skills, but you would get to discover interesting characters you have never heard of. This class would be great for readers, film enthusiasts, and slackers a like. Maybe you would even get to discover what kind of character you are."

"The name of my dream class: HOW TO RELAX. Statistics show that 90% of visits to medical doctors are directly or indirectly related to stress. 90%! It's a fact that might be a bit hard to believe, but not all that difficult to imagine. Stress is a killer. And with all the stuff that's constantly going on around us, it's hard not to get stressed out... We need to play Angry Pigs, go skydiving with our umbrellas, ride up a whale's waterspout to meet our friends, drive a helicopter to deliver that message to our lover, and so much more on a daily basis. When was the last time you took time off to just relax, and sit in a corner doing nothing? It may be hard to believe, but most people don't even know HOW to relax. And it's definitely something I wish they taught us in school... My doodle entry for my dream class reflects this concept. While everyone, everywhere is constantly busy all around them, sometimes it's good just to take a break and relax in an empty corner, and renew and recover ourselves. This is reflected in the doodle by the person relaxing peacefully under a tree. Simply, quietly, in one small secluded corner, while the small and gentle words mention, "How To Relax". This peacefulness forms the cover of the book. You know how to relax don't you? That's right... just take out your pencil and doodle..."

"When Doodlers Anonymous asked for "Dream Class textbook" submissions, I said, "I will rise to this challenge with the full gravitas that such an endeavor requires." I'm not one of those people that likes My Little Ponies; I just wanted a class that some poor Hufflepuff could finally ace. (Boom! Harry Potter zing!) The correct answer is A: the magenta one. It's on the cover. Get back to fighting the Dark Lord."

Hello, just wondering what the copyright is on the template. I did a dream class drawing for the submission,...and then read the directions and realized I couldn't use the computer to digitally color. Since I can't use it for the contest, I was going to submit it to my school newspaper's cartoons. Do I need to draw my illustration inside a new book or can I use the one you provided? Thanks :)

Hi Mia J,

You could use any standard size paper I guess. Probably Letter or A4?

Hope you managed to get that sorted out before the deadline. :O

Daniel Dou Posted Sep 18, 2013
Sorry to hear that Jessica R. :( Yeah, the timezone thing is definitely a pain sometimes... Missing a deadline is definitely not fun. Especially with all the work and effort put into it, but I guess can't be helped.

Hope you manage to join the next showcase. :) Looking forward to seeing your work!
