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.

Freedom of Mind

I've been following Craig Atkinson's work for as long as I can remember, and yet for some reason I never posted about him on DA. I only realized it this morning when I was catching up with his work on flickr.

Craig draws from the U.K. and he draws a lot. When he's not drawing, he's printing and shipping short-run art publications from the small publishing house he started back in 2005, called Café Royal Books.

Craig sums up sketchbooks perfectly, "…I find sketchbooks a great way to free up from over-considered ideas, and a great way to counteract the exact requirements an art director might have when working commercially." If you have the time, you can flip through his sketchbooks for hours of inspiration and improvised narratives. If you don't, take a look below at some of my favorite pages.
