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.
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.
This is our most ambitious project to date -- almost a year in the making. It's the culmination of over 130 submissions, over 2,300 votes, and an infinite amount of creativity. We launch our 2012 DA Calendar with overwhelming pride, not only in the beauty and originality of the artwork, but in the fantastic support of our community. We truly could not have accomplished this feat without you, our supporters and friends.
If you love what we are doing at Doodlers Anonymous, help us fight the good fight. Buying a calendar not only promotes independent artists and helps to support this website, but more importantly, saves you from those overcrowded malls this holiday season.
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.
It's almost June and that means we're that much closer to summer - the blistering heat, the humid beach breeze, the happy energy that the season brings... It's definitely something to draw about. Many of you have participated in the previous Calendar Draw Challenges. Here's another chance!
Submit a drawing for your chance to be our featured artist for the month of June. Make it good. Most of all, make it hot! (Oh, we love a good pun.)
Submissions are now open. Good luck!
