Giveaway: A Hand-Drawn Portrait of You by Jamie Tao | Doodlers Anonymous

That's Okat. You may know him as the founder of Doodlers Anonymous. His dark disheveled hair, crazy full beard, distinct eyes and nose - I love capturing it on paper. Like he said, "It's like looking in a mirror, but better."

A face says so much. Ever since I can remember, I have always loved drawing them. My most recent project has been to combine my two favorite things - face and type - to portray a person and the essence of who they are.

This is where the cool part comes in. I'm doing a giveaway. I want to draw you.

For the chance to win a 9"x12" signed, hand-drawn portrait of you, all you have to do is leave a comment below with a quote or phrase that best describes your personality. We'll pick one winner based on the quotes submitted. (This quote/phrase will be incorporated into your portrait.The winner will also have to send us a photo of themselves.)

The winner(s) have been chosen!

With over 70 comments, it was difficult to choose just one winner, so instead I chose two. Good on you. :) Congrats to Josh LaFayette ("My favorite hobby is breakfast.") and Ellie Kneeland (" an octopus on roller skates"). Please send over a close-up photo of you so I can see all the details of your wonderful faces.

Thanks for everyone's participation. What a fun way to get to know our members!

And keep on the lookout! We're making these hand-drawn portraits available for purchase in our shop very soon, so you can order your very own.
