Get Published

Back in 2009 I described Anorak Magazine as "the happy, colorful, illustrated, quirky, character-filled, page-turning, content-driven mag for everyone," but they simply call themselves "the happy mag for kids." Happy being the key word here, and this summer Doodlers Anonymous is going to help them spread some of that joy around.

How you ask? Anorak is committing 6 pages of their June issue to your illustrations, with each page featuring two images, so that's a total of 12 artists getting some nice attention and love from us all (not to mention a free issue of course). We have only 3 guidelines for your participation: (1) Your art must be black and white, so kids can choose to color it in (2) It must be horizontal (in other words landscape mode), so we can easily fit two on a page (3) Your illustration must be themed FAVORITE SPORTS, but of course invented and imaginary sports are welcomed too.

Deadline is April 25th. Get drawing and submit your artwork to sports{at}doodlersanonymous{dot}com. The team at Anorak and DA will pick the final selection of twelve. Good luck to everyone and follow us on Twitter or Facebook for updates along the way.

Doodlebomb! Has A New Home

After the popularity of our latest drawn challenge, and fueled by the momentum of your amazing submissions, I went ahead and created a Tumblr feed that will live on for as long as we receive more doodles.

Be patient, I am still in the process of porting over all the submissions (over 70) that we've already received, but you can follow the updates and even feel free to participate with another doodle ad hack if you'd like. Find it all at and help us turn this into a fun little meme (hashtag #doodlebomb). And of course, feel free to pass the link along to everyone you love.

While on the subject, let me formally announce the winners of the Doodlebomb! showcase challenge. Congrats to Kathleen Dolan with the editor's pick grand prize and cheers to runner-ups Margo and Paz Bernstein, who will each be awarded a DA 2012 Calendar. Thanks again to for sponsoring such a great doodle challenge.

Coloring Book, Vol. 2 update

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.

March's Guest Contributor:
Vincent Griffin

Most days when I post inspiration on Doodlers Anonymous, it's because I discovered an artist doing something so incredibly different than my own style, that I just want to share them with everyone. Other times, I discover an artist whose style is so familiar to me, that I practically connect to each and every one of their drawings.

In this case, it was with Vincent Griffin's work. I've been following his feed on Instagram and quickly realized how often I "like" one of his images. We only exchanged a few emails, but I immediately knew he would be a great fit to guest write for the month of March.

He gladly accepted.

Vincent works in Little Rock, Arkansas as an illustrator and part-times it playing music in two different bands (or music collectives as he called them). He lives on Instagram and posts completed works on Land and Shape. Here are some of my favorites, but I really just wanted to post all of his work.

See You Around

It seems like February is saying good bye to all of us. I really enjoyed so much sharing with you some of my favorites doodles, I hope you enjoyed them too and I hope they were as inspiring for you as they are for me. Instead of a "good bye" I want to say "see you around" cause I will be sharing some other interesting things in the future in this amazing and lovely place. Doodlers Anonymous is definitely one of my favorite sites and I wanna thank them for this amazing opportunity.

Meanwhile you can follow me on twitter (@Muxxi) and Facebook, hope to see you there. Let's keep it doodling!

February's Guest Contributor: Muxxi

We introduced you to Muxxi back in July 2010 as a Guatemalan artist lost in a crazy doodle world. That's still true, only since then she's better defined her style and grown her playing field to include murals, vector illustrations, and awesome collaborations with like-minded artists.

She's also left her mark all over DA, from showcase submissions to participating in practically every drawn giveaway we've ever done. We love her surreal characters and strange worlds and have now welcomed her to contribute to Doodlers Anonymous for the month of February.

She's waving hello, so be sure to wave back and take some time to visit her growing portfolio and online shop of art prints.

Open Call / Coloring Book Vol. 2

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 protected] as a hi-res JPG (300dpi). Now go draw.
