No, just kidding. A “doodle bomb” isn’t a cross between a goofy drawing and a lethal missile. Nor is it scary. Usually it’s funny. Sometimes even beautiful…
What is a Doodlebomb?
Your challenge is to hijack a magazine ad and doodle it up with your crafty skills. Do it old school: use paint, a pen, marker, sharpie, whatever, but no computer help. (Doodlebomb!)
This is a little restrictive for our tastes. There’s no sense limiting ourselves to advertisements. Instead, any Essex image or photo that you have permission to use (or created yourself) is fair game. And why limit yourself to “old school” doodles when digital cameras abound?
Basically a doodlebomb is derivative graphic created by doodling over an existing image. So you could take a photograph of an Essex landmark and then doodle it up to your heart’s contenct!
