project doodle www.seekproject.com


Phil Wall loves to doodle on photos so I gave him one (image above) to spread his doodle magic on and he came up with this super hero inspired doodle titled "Monsterous Powers":

Phil had this to say about the doodle: "I like to think the monster was 'playing superhero' and crashed legs first into the building, accidentally firing his laser eyes on impact...something like that".

You can follow Phil's fun doodle project and even give him a photo to doodle on here.

6.08.11 Yesterday 5th August was my birthday and Jason McDonald made a drawing for me (image above). I met Jason last year on Twitter at the beginning of my Daily drawing challenge and I immediatley got drawn to his fluid drawing style and his desire to apply his drawings to functional objects.

Thank you Jason for taking time out to create this drawing for me, I sincerely appreciate it. :-). More of Jason's work can be seen on his website : www.evilchimpo.com
