Open Call / A Robot Coloring Book

Over the next few months we plan on printing our second mini-coloring book. Our first -- The Quintessential, Quirky, Compendium of Cats -- featured 28 global artists in a mashup of styles honoring our feline friends.

This time around we are looking to expand our mini-book to feature over 35 artists and the theme will be robots! In celebration of everything bot - from clanky vintage metal and rusted bolts to B movie retro-futuristic robots - every page, with a drawing from a different artist, will make you want to robot dance.

Our only requirement is that the illustration fall within the robot theme- be it a unique homage to a beloved robotic icon, an uber-shiny mod design, or maybe an entire family of dark, overlord, microwave robots. It's your call, it's your page. The working title of the book is, "Blinking Lights & Beeping Parts: A Robot Coloring Book Collection by Doodlers Anonymous."

The deadline for submissions is April 2nd. Get submission details and upload instructions here

Open Call / Coloring Book Vol. 4

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).

Tumblr of the Week: Bela Unclecat

Our first time crossing paths with Bela Unclecat was when she sent us back one of our Doodle Addict postcards from Japan with one of the most charming and lively doodles we have received. Just look at it! How many animals can you count in the left corner alone? There is a chicken thing standing on a cat that is holding a stack of tea cups that the chicken thing is drinking out of and there is a stream of tea coming into the teacup from a teapot, suddenly we've travelled all the way to the opposite side of the picture, what a magical journey that was and we're nowhere near done seeing all the sights there are to see.

There's plenty more where that came from on Bela Unclecat's tumblr. I just can't get enough of her nostalgically playful universe.

If you're addicted to tumbling as well as doodling, follow Doodlers Anonymous on Tumblr for even more daily inspiration. You might even see yourself on there!

Showcase #18: The Essential Draw

Everyone has played the game: what would you take with you if you could only bring along one thing? We all have something, something essential or entirely superfluous, something kinky or sentimental, something cerebral or trashy. Out with it. What's your thing?

In this challenge we ask that you draw something you wouldn't leave behind. Wait! Before you get to it, it MUST be something that could fit in a backpack. You're confined only by the size of your item, nothing else. Deadline May 23rd by 4pm EST, go here for complete submission details

Draw your thing, your take-along, and win this incredible backpack to hold it. Trust me, you'll want to get your hands on this, because the folks at TOM BIHN design and make each product with tremendous craftsmanship, and all within the U.S.

Coloring Book, Vol. 2

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.

Showcase #15: Bookmark Doodles

At Doodlers Anonymous we love books. We love the texture, ink, and creases of the printed word the tactile deliciousness of thumbing, highlighting and devouring pages. We love books that weigh heavy in our hands.

This drawing challenge is a tribute to traditional paper books and the act of reading. The two winners of this challenge (yes, there will be two!) will have their artwork fashioned into DA bookmarks. We challenge you to doodle the front-side of a bookmark, and we'll use the back to promote and credit you.

Special thanks to the fine folks at PrintRunner.com for sponsoring this showcase. Check them out for all your printing needs, including: business cards, stickers, postcards and more. There's no specific theme this time around, although keeping it book or reading relevant is encouraged. We're just looking for some delicious art and something you'll be proud of. Go and get your doodle on, complete details here (deadline May 31st).
