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 showcase 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.



 
Submission Guidelines
 

  • There's no specific theme, although keeping it book or reading relevant is encouraged. We're just looking for some delicious art and something you'll be proud of.
  • As always, we champion the hand-drawn, but due to the nature of this showcase, we anticipate the use of graphic software to apply the image to our template.
  • Feel free to use color.
  • To be accepted, all submissions MUST be mocked up on the template provided and uploaded as a JPG image (no larger than 2MB).
  • Upload your best, because you only get one submission.
  • All participants MUST save the hi-resolution version of their artwork. The winners will be provided with final specifications for the preparation and production of the print.

DEADLINE: WEDNESDAY, MAY 30th (11:59pm EST)
 
Prize
 

Two winners from Showcase #15 will have their artwork brought to life and printed as 250 bookmarks by our awesome sponsor, PrintRunner.com

Each winner will receive 25 of their own bookmark, full credit and promoted to all fans and friends of DA, plus we plan on giving the remaining bookmarks away to anyone that buys something in our shop. Good luck!

 

And the winners are...

Sweet. Have, regrettable, done nothing with DA since joining a million years ago. Glad to finally get with the program. Bookmark was just too perfect an opportunity...

Hugo

Heya guys,

A couple of clarifications and answers:

1) @everyone - web Link refers to any page you want us to link to as part of your credit. Can be your website, can be your twitter, can be your blog. It is entirely up to you. Our recommendation is to use something that will probably live with you regardless of which social network is the hottest at the moment.

2) @Faye - all of the submissions will go live for voting this Wednesday.

3) @shawn - sweet indeed. glad to have you participating!

Hey hey! Great project. I did not put anything on the "back" of the template. I thought that would be filled in later with the winner's info. Should I resubmit?

Hugo
Hugo Posted May 30, 2012
@matthew -- it is totally optional to write that information in, but the submission must include the whole template provided as one jpg.

@Mazauric I'm sorry you feel that way. During the voting process, the text clearly stated the following: "The EDITORS OF DA will pick the winner from the top 5 submissions. So go ahead and mark your favorite doodles, you can pick more than one!"

The votes from the community help define for our sponsor and the editors at DA who are the top selects. We then select our winner picks from that pool.

Thanks for participating and per your request, we'll delete your account today.

NO
NO Posted Jun 13, 2012

I appreciate your kindness anyway (i mean really)
