We're pleased as pie that our friends at Blik are sponsoring Doodlers Anonymous again in their search for amazing illustrators. It's a win-win: selected DA artists get a sweet gig (cha-ching), and Blik gets to collaborate with some of the most stupendous creatives around. (Us? biased?) See for yourself. Below are some images of the current project -- wall installations for the groundbreaking LA radio station KCRW. DA n' Blik = milk n' honey.

Scott Flora, Blik's co-founder, describes the project in his own words...
We are incredibly inspired by the artwork created by Doodlers Anonymous artists from as far away as the UK and Germany for a collaborative BLIK Studio custom project. We are working with the groundbreaking LA radio station KCRW which reaches 500,000 listeners each week and is credited with introducing such artists as Beck, Coldplay and Norah Jones to the world. Together with Jim Bradshaw, Greg Kletsel, Diana Kohne, Muxxi, Olly Gibbs and Sophie Roach, BLIK is creating art for interior and exterior walls of the stations' offices and studio. The project is currently underway and is slated to be installed and completed this Spring.
Incredible! We can't wait to see pics of the real thing installed.
Blik, the makers of the finest wall decals around, are constantly on the lookout for doodlers and illustrators to work with on a number of custom projects. Past clients include Google, Threadless, IGN, and the Pasadena Art Center (just to name a few), so this makes for an incredible opportunity for any illustrator with a sweet portfolio.

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.
Today is a good day, a really good day. We are beaming with pride and grinning from ear to ear. It’s the first time we have transformed our community’s showcase submissions into something tangible, breathing life into a concept. This is what Doodlers Anonymous is all about!
This past March, we collaborated with the fine folks at Blik. We challenged DA members to draw an original artwork for our studio wall, which would be turned into a wall decal for sale in limited release. The turnout floored us. Our jaws dropped as we received submission after submission, totaling 99 drawn walls!
We are excited to announce that the winning decals have been printed! They are vibrant and amazing and now available for purchase. So, show your fellow members some love, buy a decal and make your walls pretty with art. Your purchase will help support DA’s efforts, community, philosophy, and the doodling arts. A community that doodles together…
With so much deliciousness, 99 to be exact, how could we crown just one winner? The comments reflect how difficult it was for our community to select one artwork from a sea of talent. Well, thank goodness for Blik who worked with us to up the ante. There will be three winners-- the submission with the most votes, as well as two Editor's picks. Besides having their designs produced in limited-edition runs, all three winners will receive their own decal as well as a $75 Blik gift certificate and a Blik tee. I just love a happy ending!
And to the rest of you, there are no words to describe how happy we are with the creativity that was brought to this challenge. We thank you for every effort and submission on this showcase, and hope you continue to join us in many more fun and amazing drawing exercises this year.See More »
There's probably nothing I love more than making art large enough for a wall, and so I can't help but be extremely enthusiastic about this showcase.
We've teamed up with the awesome folks at Blik (the world's first removable wall graphic company), to present this challenge to you. But this isn’t just another blik on the wall and this isn't just any wall. We want you to draw up something fantastic with our studio wall as your canvas.
And the best part? The submission with the most love will be turned into a self-adhesive vinyl decal to be sold as a 100-piece limited edition run.
I am not kidding either. This showcase is for everyone, whether new to drawing, or a long-time artist, it's time to get your hands full of markers and pens. Get the full details here »
