Project: Create a Doodle about "A Day in Another City"

Create a doodle about "A Day in Another City."

Welcome to the fifth edition of the GOOD Doodles project. Hopefully you had a chance to check out our first few projects, such as "Solitude in the City" and "A Day Without Technology," all of which have yielded some amazing submissions.

For this month's project, dubbed "A Day in Another City," we're asking you to pick a day you've recently experienced in a city other than your own. What did you do? Observe? Compare? What story can you tell with doodles about your one-day displacement?

the OBJECTIVE
Create a doodle that tells your story of a day in another city.

the ASSIGNMENT
The doodle can be as broad or as specific as you wish. Did you go somewhere unexpected? Did you feel lost? Did you do anything new? Did the experience bring up any interesting thoughts or observations?

the REQUIREMENTS
Send us an e-mail at projects[at]goodinc[dot]com with your doodle and the subject line "December DOODLE." It can be in any image format, but ideally it should be high enough resolution that it can be printed at 300 dpi. We prefer images that are taller versus wider (the above was a 6:8 ratio). There are numerous methods for creating visual notes whether through digital means (tablets, digital sketchpads, etc.) or tangible methods such as using a Moleskine. Regardless of your choice, please ensure the images are as clean as possible. Feel free to include a brief summary of your illustration. We’ll take submissions now through December 15.

We'll be awarding the best overall doodle with a GOOD T-shirt and free subscription (or gift subscription) based on overall quality of illustration, relevance to the theme, and clarity and flow.

We'll share some of the submissions with upcoming update posts.

Jim Browning is a YouTuber from the UK who has an amazing ability to catch scammers in the act.

In this video, he responds to a scam email claiming he bought a laptop by breaking into the scammer's computer. In the process he uncovers where the scammers work, their banking information, and even their personal identities.

"I got an 'invoice' email telling me that I had paid for a $3800 laptop," Browning writes on his YouTube page. "No links... just a phone number. It's a real shame that these scammers emailed me because I was able to find out exactly who they were and where the were."
