The Woods at Play



Sarah Nicolas Williams was born in the wilderness of Vermont and raised in Virginia's Shenandoah valley. The woods of her childhood seep into her graceful indian ink and watercolor vignettes and blur the boundaries of her backyard. Sophisticated woodland animals in polished brass buttons enjoy a slice of cherry pie, or recline on a moonlit hammock, with the utmost civility. Soothing images of nature in repose. Brought to you, brought to me, by UncommonGoods.

Showcase #19: Draw Yourself(ie)

Mirror, mirror on the wall... who will be the winner of them all? DA showcase challenge #19 tasks you to doodle yourself. Draw a spot-on likeness of your image or a more creative, interpretative self-portrait. Either way we want to see what stares back at you when you peer through the looking glass.

And holy smokes! Did we mention? The winner of this challenge gets a $250 Michaels giftcard. Oh, the creative damage one could do with that! I'm dreaming of one of those mini shopping carts piled high. Deadline June 26th. Read on for complete details

Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway

Adrienne Vita's ink, watercolor, acrylic and gouache illustrations capture and promote everything good and true -- coexistence, wanderlust, individuality, friendship and family. Her beautiful menagerie of wild animals are seeped in color and pattern-- they're warm and bright and comforting in image and message. Adrienne says each piece comes from her intuition and meditations. Viewers can't help but become admirers, and admirers can't help but feel a sense of peace. Thank you to UncommonGoods for making the acquaintance.

An Uncommon Parisian

Red lips, rouged cheeks, and that certain je ne sais quoi that is oh-so-French, Valerie Galloway's giclee prints capture the glamor and spirit of post-war Paris. Saturated in pattern and charm and the pull of delicate nostalgia, you can almost see the yellowed, worn-edged family photos which inspired her. What an uncommon find I just discovered at UncommonGoods.

Hey Doodlers! Doodle for Blik

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.

Interested? Submit your website link to [email protected] and we'll get back to you, if you and a project make a good fit.













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.
