We're happy to announce the winner of our latest Doodle Project. It was an incredible honor and pleasure to see everyone's sketches come in and we have posted 16 of them here for your enjoyment.
Our winner for this month, Bianca Ferrari (see submission above), told the tale of her day in Verona, Italy. As she described it,
It's a sort of diary-narration of one day in Verona. Fortunately I lived there three years long during University so I couldn't have sort of feelings like displacements or specific new sensations and - as you can see from the large amounts of items - I had a very busy day! I tried to select the most important memories after about 24 hours and note them down with words and drawings. Therefore I think there are more things observed and done than 'unexpected' in this doodle.
Bianca will receive a GOOD T-shirt and a gift subscription.
Part of our goal with this ongoing project is to highlight the work of many different doodlers, professional or amateur. Creativity, humor, and originality are all taken into account in addition to quality of drawing.
Thanks to everyone who participated. We'll be launching our next Doodles project, with a new theme, very soon. For suggestions on themes/topics for upcoming Doodles please tweet @LenKendall.
