Showcase #3

Balloon Doodle

Take a deep breath, blow up a balloon, and sharpie the damn thing like it's nobody's business.

Then just take an incredible photo of your blown up markings and hope to get many, many loving votes, because the winner of Showcase #3 gets a deliciously awesome prize and so do the rest of you. Read below for more details...


Submission Guidelines

Doodle anything you'd like on a balloon(s)
Do it old school, with some markers, pens, paints, etc, but no computer help!
It's a simple prompt so make it good.
Take a nice picture of it, we might feature it in a printed magazine.
Presentation counts.



The winner of Showcase #3 will get a year subscription to Anorak Magazine (4 issues), plus a happy activity book.

Ladies and gentleman, that's not all. Once all submissions are in, the editors of Doodlers Anonymous and Anorak will also award our favorite balloon doodles with a feature in the next issue of Anorak Magazine. Take note folks, this here is one activity you won't want to miss out on (deadline October 20th @ 11am Eastern).


And the winner is...

if you are late to the game like me, and can't find any balloons, i found out that condoms react to edding markers with a big PENG and explode. Now here is a fact that i would never have found out otherwise XD
