The Essential Draw showcase challenge is over. We have a winner, but before I get into congratulating them I'd like to share some really cool news I just received courtesy of our sponsor. The awesome folks at TOM BIHN appreciated your "essential" doodles so much that they'd like to offer all of you that participated a limited edition Organizer Pouch in exchange for your drawing. Mail your doodle, along with your return address to:
TOM BIHN Attention: Doodles 4750A Ohio Ave S Seattle, WA 98134
and they'll send you the Organizer Pouch. The really cool part: your doodles will be put on permanent display in their Seattle factory. Amazing!
A round of applause to all 70 of you, with a special cheer to Mr. Ramsey O'Brien who took the top spot with 64 of your votes (his submission above). Cheers! Now sharpen those pencils and ready those pens, we've got another sweet challenge going live next week. Subscribe to our RSS and Twitter feed for updates.
With so much deliciousness, 99 to be exact, how could we crown just one winner? The comments reflect how difficult it was for our community to select one artwork from a sea of talent. Well, thank goodness for Blik who worked with us to up the ante. There will be three winners-- the submission with the most votes, as well as two Editor's picks. Besides having their designs produced in limited-edition runs, all three winners will receive their own decal as well as a $75 Blik gift certificate and a Blik tee. I just love a happy ending!
And to the rest of you, there are no words to describe how happy we are with the creativity that was brought to this challenge. We thank you for every effort and submission on this showcase, and hope you continue to join us in many more fun and amazing drawing exercises this year.See More »
Of the 54 names, we randomly pulled two. Congratulations to Cheryl Smith and Julia Smelansky, both of whom are doodle addicts themselves (credit the above images to them). Your books are on the way. To everyone else, cross your fingers there's another print run.
Sorry for the announcement delay folks, most of us here at DA were on vacation last week. You gotta do what you gotta do. :)
The good news is Miss Thereza Rowe has done the draw for her giveaway and picked two winners. Congratulations and high fives go out to: Alex and Tigz Rice.
Thank you for all who participated. And thank you again Thereza for being an all-around awesome person and contributor here at DA. We have thoroughly enjoyed your stay here. Come back and visit us often!
