Project: Create a Doodle about "Photo's Story"

For this month's project, dubbed Draw a Photo's Story, we're asking you to pick a recent photo you've taken and, recreate, borrow, or transform the picture to tell a story of what happened around that event.


Welcome to the fourth edition of the GOOD Doodles project. Hopefully you had a chance to check out our first few projects, "Solitude in the City," "A Day Without Technology," and "A Day with a Bicycle." All of which had some very creative and eye-pleasing submissions.

For this month's project, dubbed Draw a Photo's Story, we're asking you to pick a recent photo you've taken and, recreate, borrow, or transform the picture to tell a story of what happened around that event.


the OBJECTIVE
Create a doodle that tells the story of a recent photo you took.

the ASSIGNMENT
The doodle can be as broad or as specific as you wish. Why did you decide to take the photo? What part of the scene did you notice first? What took place before or after the photo was taken? 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 "October 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 November 5.

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.
