Showcase #15: Bookmark Doodles

At Doodlers Anonymous we love books. We love the texture, ink, and creases of the printed word — the tactile deliciousness of thumbing, highlighting and devouring pages. We love books that weigh heavy in our hands.

This drawing challenge is a tribute to traditional paper books and the act of reading. The two winners of this challenge (yes, there will be two!) will have their artwork fashioned into DA bookmarks. We challenge you to doodle the front-side of a bookmark, and we'll use the back to promote and credit you.

Special thanks to the fine folks at PrintRunner.com for sponsoring this showcase. Check them out for all your printing needs, including: business cards, stickers, postcards and more. There's no specific theme this time around, although keeping it book or reading relevant is encouraged. We're just looking for some delicious art and something you'll be proud of. Go and get your doodle on, complete details here (deadline May 31st).

Showcase #14: Egg Draw

In this season of artificial green cellophane and pastel hyperbole comes the kind of challenge you've been waiting for. Leave the bunnies and chicks to the chocolatiers and doodle up some savagely creative eggs. No theme. No constraints. Just you and a carton of (fragile) possibility. You can draw on one eggshell or a dozen, just make sure you only upload one photo.

I'd like to thank the fine folks at DrawTop for sponsoring this ridiculously cool drawing challenge. They make an awesome product by custom cutting adhesive vinyl whiteboards that you can stick practically anywhere, including the backs of electronic devices like laptops and iPads.

Click for prize and participation details. Deadline is Thursday, April 5th, so go on and get to showing off your drawing skills.

Doodle on friends.

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 doodle-bomb.tumblr.com 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 UPrinting.com for sponsoring such a great doodle challenge.

The October Showdown

It was neck and neck until the closing bell, and when the smoke cleared two submissions were left standing at an even 76 votes.

Unfortunately there can only be one winner and so the team and I were left to make the call. After endless debate, DA's editors have voted Nata Metlukh as the winner of the October Calendar Draw by a vote of 2 to 1.

Congratulations to all our participants! Your submissions were inspiring. Now go on and get ready to draw December, because for our final showcase the editor's at DA will make the final pick from the top three voted submissions.

Hand-Drawn Calendar - UPDATE!

Our calendar project is coming to an end. We have amazing invited artists on board and a slew of prior showcase winners. We're down to the wire, in the final stretch, wrapping it up... you get the idea. So if I can make a humble suggestion, you know, friend to friend: hurry the heck up! Get involved by following three simple steps: (A) Doodle up the month of October 2012 (B) Submit your artwork (C) Pat yourself on the back and high five friends.

Seeing the calendar come together is so much fun, it feels wrong. Muahaha… I love it when a plan comes together!

P.S. For those of you new to DA, welcome! You can learn more about the calendar and how to participate here.

The Trip by Michelle Lasalvia
(Process + Install)

We just got lost in a wonderful hour of cutting, rubbing, rolling, and pulling. How we love the tactile and tangible goodness of a hands-on project: the materials, the planning, the process. What fun to focus on something beautiful and immediate. Instant gratification.

The Trip by Michelle Lasalvia is stunning. The web honestly does it no justice. It has been an instant conversation piece at DA’s studio. The colors are vibrant and the quality of the vinyl and packaging exceeded all expectations. You will be enamored, but you’ll also be out of luck if you wait too long. Stock is limited, very limited (click to buy).

Post this beautiful decal on your wall like a ribbon around your finger—a reminder to travel, an inspiration to get out there.
