Our 2014 Doodle, Draw and Illustration Year in Review

Before we close out 2014 and set out to make 2015 another amazing year, I wanted to quickly thank our community of friends, fans, readers and artists that make Doodlers Anonymous such a thriving community of inspiration, creativity and art. We plan on making 2015 kick ass. Stay tuned...

Now on to the good stuff. This year we highlighted hundreds of artists, projects and artworks (you can revisit the complete archive here). As a short recap, I'm featuring a few of the more popular and memorable ones below (click their titles to read further about each).

Millo, Please Draw on Our City Walls, Forever and Ever.



When you look at the work of street artist Millo, you'll quickly realize there's someone special watching over our city walls. His art is massive, but not in an intrusive way. He paints black lines, adding a hint of color only when needed, and his lines draw characters caught-up and interacting amongst the streets and buildings of our urban walls.

In 2014, he was awarded the opportunity to paint 13 large-scale walls in Turin, Italy, and each one of them is as beautiful as the next. Here's a peek to some of my favorites, but you should follow him on Instagram or his website for so much more.

Doodles Save This News Anchor's Live Weather Forecast

A weather reporter from ABC News 4 was attempting to deliver his daily update on live TV when the computer that animates the forecast froze up. After a few minutes of small talk, the anchor team quickly doodled up a few weather icons and then throw them up onto the green screen behind him. It's a great example of improvising on live TV.

Interstellar Drawings



I'm very much enjoying the drawings of Jason Hernandez, especially the ones themed around space travel. I love the narrative, it's as if I'm traveling between stars. The drawings generally consist of black ink on yellow paper with accents of gold paint, and the attention to detail in each image is just right. Buckle up and enjoy the cosmos.

Blue Monday



If you're feeling blue this Monday afternoon, simply take a look at the wonderful drawings I discovered in Gosia Herba's sketchbook. A prolific illustrator and graphic designer from Wroclaw, Poland, Gosia makes creating these delightful abstract illustrations look so fun and easy. Visit his Behance portfolio for an endless amount of inspiration.

Open Call / Coloring Book Vol. 4

Once a year we open up the flood gates and collect submissions for our annual coloring book.

For those of you that are new to Doodlers Anonymous, this is one of our more popular times of the year, as our coloring books are unlike anything you've seen before. They feature 60 artists from around the world - some fresh novices, others seasoned veterans, all of whom share a love for the hand-drawn.

We want everyone to participate, so grab your pens and sharpies and get to it. If you're interested in participating, we've set an aggressive deadline that is fast approaching (October 7th, 2014), go here for the complete details



To celebrate the open call, we are discounting a combo-pack of our volume one and two coloring books by 15% (shop here).
