There are no words to describe how ecstatic we are with the outcome of Showcase One. It was a simple prompt, but it inspired so many great submissions. Over 80 napkin doodles were uploaded, giving us an amazing collection of drawings, all caught in their own moment in a slew of different colors and textures.
We thank each and every one of you for your participation. It's a testament to the doodle community and encouraging to know that we are all craving a place to celebrate our addiction of drawing on anything and everything.
Now the really fun part. You get to see them all and vote for your favorite. The best part is you don't have to pick just one. You can mark as many as you'd like. Just click the asterisk under each of the ones you love and its "fave score" will increase by one.
Voting ends Monday, 5pm Eastern.
We have good... no, scratch that. We have great news to share with you. It's something we've been working very hard to make happen on our end.
We'd like to introduce you to our new section called "Showcase."
Every couple weeks, we will challenge you to be creative and do what you love to do by doodling for us based on a theme or prompt. And then all you have to do is upload your submission into our "Showcase" section. All of our members will vote on their favorite and at the end of the challenge, the art with the most votes wins a wonderful prize by our sponsor. See more of the details here.
Our first challenge, if you choose to accept, is to doodle on something you're probably very familiar with: THE NAPKIN.
So go ahead, grab a serviette and pen away. And don't forget to upload it here.
The small, but legendary restaurant in Oakland, California, Mama's Royal Cafe, has an annual napkin art contest that is well into its 26th year. Hop on over to the gallery page to view an inspirational collection of doodles from previous competitions. And if you are lucky enough to live in the Bay Area, you have until March 2009 to participate.
