Its finally here, the annual Doodle for Google competition! I feel this contest truly draws upon the inner most creative bits of every artist to see what they can truly do with their wonderful imagination. The part I love about the contest is how open ended the parameters are like for example this years theme:
” If I could travel in time I’d visit....”
Every year Google has expanded the competition pool, this year the only limits to the contestant pool, are must be a US resident, cannot be an adult, and no three-dimensional work. With that in mind, last year there were well over 100,000 entrants. I tell my students, not to feel anxious about the quantity of entries as a seven year old won the competition last year, Matteo Lopez with his creative space theme. So this means you do not have the most technical, drawing, yet you want to just let your creativity flow and not be restricted to just the logo create an environment around the logo too.
