  1. Waking up in Bent Glasses with MONSTER Breath on a BAD hair day... I really do fall asleep in my glasses all the time, even when I am wearing contacts, because then I still need reading glasses,, so I can fall asleep doodling.... I had to go digging in my old Volvo to even FIND a napkin, which may be as old as the car (1985) or as new as last weeks trip to Dick's Drive in... Do I finally belong SOMEWHERE? I was going to upload it folded, but then I liked the way it looked unfolded. I had fun doing it. This is actually my first napkin doodle, and my first submission of any of my art to anything....

  2. Just two days back I had gone to Pizza corner. While waiting for the pizza I just doodled on the paper napkin and I saw this contest. So here is my entry for the first time...

  3. theme of the day - a Hepburn in the Hilton world

  4. My 1st Showcase Challenge Posted, pen, chalk from the "Specials" Board & Cigarette ashes from an ashtray, while cleaning it! Doodled what I saw & used what was there! ;-D Cheers, Magic `*>~[

  5. I had a stash of Dunkin Donut napkins, who in this world doesn't? So I sketched on one for this challenge. Funny enough I often sketch on paper napkins whether it be Starbucks or D and D or some other cafe I'm in.

  6. First thing I did when I got home yesterday. Doodling on napkins is a moral imperative, isn't it?

  7. I'm more of a place-mat-doodler than a napkin-drawer, but my submission has been uploaded!

  8. Just uploaded my napkin submission but I found it quite difficult to doodle on a napkin because the surface didn't lend itself to spontaneity - kept catching on my pen! Maybe not the best type of napkin but it was the only one I had!

  9. Love doodling on napkins especially the ones from fast food joints. I love the way the ink bleeds. I have a typeface I created from a napkin doodle laying around somewhere. Aptly named "Wet Nap"

  10. Just finished my doodle! Can't wait to upload it later!!

  11. yep...I submitted my napkin masterpiece :)

  12. I have no idea why, but it's not possible uploading the picture (JPG) here! :s

  13. Can't wait to see all the doodles!

  14. Amalie, The server has a restriction of 2MB per file. Try reducing the file size and see if it works.

  15. Cheryl > me too !! I'd like so much to be a lil mouse having diner near DA server ^___^

  16. Submitted!

  17. submitted

  18. I just uploaded my napkin. I wish I could have uploaded all the ones I had to toss. Was fun to do over lunch.

  19. Done, and done. It didn't show an error when I uploaded something larger than 2 MB the other day, but glad to have tried again.

  20. Hello, Mine is 1.78 MB, and I also tried one 1.25. Doesn't wokr :( Don't know what to do :(

  21. Um I've uploaded mine but it's appearing as a box with a blue question mark in it. Any idea if it's actually worked / if I can re-try? Thanks!

  22. Uploaded my first showcase. Inspired by my composer / lyricist dad, who always tells me that his best songs were always scribbled on a bar napkin.

  23. Just reading some of these posts and I submitted my file size as 72dpi "save for web" so it is a lot smaller than some of the people here. I just assumed this was for web only viewing. Does my file need to be a higher resolution?

  24. Thanks for all the feedback guys. Your comments have helped me figure out what the possible problem is. I am working on a solution. :) The submissions look AMAZING. I'm giddy with excitement to read your reactions when we make them live. UPDATE: I've lowered the allowed file size to 1MB and it seems to be helping things.

  25. @Carla Thursday: We just sent you an email with details on how to resubmit. @Jim: We got yours and it looks great, no worries.

  26. submitted :)

  27. Bic Biro on napkin paper gives a nice chunky line - my entry was a doodle engendered by someone pontificating at the cafe table. Cut the cord and drop something on them. The next competition should be on coffee lids. The line is hard and sharp biro on slippy plastic. Often leave the lids behind in Costa's or wherever. Anyone that finds them can keep them as art or bin them to keep the planet tidy. Real art critics. I'll never find out.

  28. Submitted =^,,^=

  29. Are you going to publish all the napkin doodles? :D If yes - I can't wait!

  30. done. cheers everyone :)

  31. Woot! Had fun doing this. :) What's the next theme, I wonder? :D I like the coffee lid idea.

  32. a lot of nice stuff....exiting! got to second the question of next theme. any ideas?

  33. Oh wow, interesting artworks, congratulations :) Great! :D

  34. I wanted to do it...But I was tired. :( Next time yah? But some of these are awesome! Makes me want to do the next theme for sure!!!

  35. that was fun, great posts! can't wait for the next theme!
