May's Guest Contributor: Mason McFee





It was just a few weeks ago that I featured Mason's work (with a member spotlight), and now I get to mention him again, as he'll be writing for the DA blog right alongside me for the month of May.

He goes by the name of Maseman and hails from the city of Austin. If you play close attention, I think you'll find his love for Texas all over his work and plenty hints of his designer talents as well. From screen prints and murals to scribbles and sketchbooks, Mason has got it covered.

Welcome to the show! Now let's rock May.

Over 34,000 Doodles Live On Our
DA Flickr Group!





I'm absolutely awe-struck by the sheer size of the Doodlers Anonymous group that lives on Flickr. Launched in November 2008, the group now houses over 34,000 drawings, doodles, sketches, scribbles, paintings and so much more.

It's a treasure of inspiration.

We do our best to consistently moderate the group and dig around for awesome finds. Images above by Jeannine Ortiz, Mary Ruth Patchin, Maura Cluthe and below are some more favorites. If you're a friend of DA, you'd be crazy not to join the group… You simply never know when you might just find your art featured here on the blog.

February's Guest Contributor:
Amaia Arrazola



This is a fun announcement! For the month of February, Amaia Arrazola will join the Doodlers Anonymous team as a guest contributor to the blog. Starting tomorrow she'll be sharing with us inspirations, books, zines, artists and all the things she's completely head over heels in love with.

I first fell for Amaia's work back in November of 2010, when I wrote about her drawn suitcase (a must see). She's been one of my favorite since, and has recently been featured on the last page of our second coloring book (as seen above -- get it here)!

If you are new to Amaia's handy work, please take the time to get to know her. Pencil, ink, markers, thread… drawn all over paper, fabric, walls, you name it, she's done it. Check out her portfolio and blog or follow her along on twitter and instagram. Welcome to DA, Amaia.

Coloring Book, Vol. 2

Some of my favorite moments working on Doodlers Anonymous is when we extend ourselves beyond the internet to produce something unique and tangible and born from the art of our community.

This week we published our second coloring book. I am thrilled and I'm pretty sure you will be too. I promise that you've never seen a coloring book quite like it. With every page turn you'll discover another style of drawing by a different artist. 60 of them to be exact.

It's now for sale at doodlersanonymous.com/coloringbook (get yourself or your best friend a copy). It will soon appear at a few boutique shops around the globe too. If you'd like to carry it in your shop or know somewhere that should, drop us a line.

Much love and respect to our stellar community of artists and aficionados. It's been a pleasure hosting all of you.

September's Guest Contributor:
Lee Crutchley

You know him as the author of Quoteskine, a book of drawn quotes, lyrics and clever word play, and for the month of September you'll know him as our blog's guest contributor.

Lee is an up and coming illustrator in the UK that's tirelessly working to "make it" as a freelancer. He runs an incredibly beloved tumblr blog, but plans to step a bit out of that role this month to post on Doodlers Anonymous about the people and things that inspire him.

You can stalk him on twitter, visit him at leecrutchley.co.uk or simply welcome him to the site in the comments below.

It's like the classifieds, for Etsy.

It was almost a year ago today that we decided to focus on developing something to help independent artists and craftsmen gain exposure for the things that they make. Nothing was set in stone, but the basic concept and name. We called it Fish Indie and we chose to build it around the largest online community of independent sellers, Etsy.

We all heart Etsy, and have always been fans of its supportive community and the quality of products they create, but like anyone who has an Etsy shop will tell you, getting your products seen is the hard part.

Our solution? To build a network of great independent blogs that will carry a banner-like classified of your Etsy product. Currently that means your banner will rotate across Doodlers Anonymous and fellow blogs, Illustration Friday, Brown Paper Bag and Pikaland. We also wanted to make it incredibly simple and affordable to join, so the ad is generated automatically using your product's url and costs less than the price of a movie ticket. We've been live now (by-invite only) for 4 weeks and the response has been phenomenal. You can see the ad yourself by taking a quick look into the top-right column of our site. It pulls in a different product upon every refresh.




If you sell your stuff on Etsy, here’s where you can sign-up for an exclusive invite. We are lovers of anything hand-made, hand-drawn and independently created (or crafted) and we look forward to growing the blogs that carry Fish Indie in the weeks ahead.
