Once a year we open up the flood gates and collect submissions for our annual coloring book.
For those of you that are new to Doodlers Anonymous, this is one of our more popular times of the year, as our coloring books are unlike anything you've seen before. They feature 60 artists from around the world - some fresh novices, others seasoned veterans, all of whom share a love for the hand-drawn.
We want everyone to participate, so grab your pens and sharpies and get to it. If you're interested in participating, we've set an aggressive deadline that is fast approaching (October 7th, 2014), go here for the complete details »
To celebrate the open call, we are discounting a combo-pack of our volume one and two coloring books by 15% (shop here).
This week we published two new books for you to enjoy. Each one filled to the brim with art from our community of doodlers, scribblers, artists and illustrators.
We are shipping them out today for bargain prices. No kidding, it will be the best gift you give out this year. Happy holidays and cheers to all of the participating artists from Coloring Book, Volume 3 and our new mini coloring book: The Quintessential, Quirky, Compendium of Cats.
Some of my favorite moments working on Doodlers Anonymous is when we extend ourselves beyond the internet to produce something unique and tangible and born from the art of our community.
This week we published our second coloring book. I am thrilled and I'm pretty sure you will be too. I promise that you've never seen a coloring book quite like it. With every page turn you'll discover another style of drawing by a different artist. 60 of them to be exact.
It's now for sale at doodlersanonymous.com/coloringbook (get yourself or your best friend a copy). It will soon appear at a few boutique shops around the globe too. If you'd like to carry it in your shop or know somewhere that should, drop us a line.
Much love and respect to our stellar community of artists and aficionados. It's been a pleasure hosting all of you.
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.
Maybe there's something to be said for order, but not by me. I prefer unpredictability and play.
One of our favorite showcase challenges has gone from concept to creation—from doodle to wall decal. The graceful disorder of Camila León's illustration will surely ensnare you, as it has us. (We recently installed it at DA and loved it so much, we moved half the studio furniture around just to better showcase it.)
"Irregular Mesh" is as delicate as lace; but its color, a fierce and unapologetic fuchsia, is roguish and saucy. The abstract design and popping pink color is so sexy, it will make you blush. Apply to any wall (click to buy), and -- voila!-- instant verve and moxie.
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.
This is an amazing animation created by Veronika Obertova. In her own words, this is "a story of Viliam, who lives his own animated life within the real world. Childish fun turns into a problem, the problem becomes a solution. No solution is perfect though. "
Wonderfully heartfelt, I personally think we all have a bit of Viliam in us - that slight antisocial charm, that need to always have a pencil in hand, that ability to be content with life the way you see fit...Simply put, you'll love watching this.
