Numbers (a.k.a. Doodle Bingo!)

Hey, sundaypiccerers, guest blogger @captain_doodle comin’ atcha…

Firstly, a big thanks to all those who took part in a fun, frantic Sunday of number crunching. I asked for numbers and boy did I receive them in droves! When I set the theme (find and photograph numbers and, as an added twist, help fill a card, bingo-stylee, with the numbers 1-50 on a ‘first come, first served’ basis) I wasn’t sure how it’d go. As it turned out twas a rip roarin’ success with more than enough to call BINGO! by mid-afternoon. Here’s the final Doodle Bingo grid in all its glory…

Was now going to post the full images for all of these, but a) it would take me forever! and b) I think they’re fine as they are in this context and the final card looks fab as it is ๐Ÿ™‚

The next chapter…

Well then, it all seems to have gone rather well. In fact, so much so that I’ve had numerous requests for prints! I think it’d look great on a canvas so I’m working at getting it into shape for print-ready artwork. I’ll of course be checking that you’re all OK with giving permission to use your pics before anything gets printed, and will sub any out that anyone’s not OK with. It’s an ongoing mini project at the moment so watch this space. I’ve had to have a bit of a tinker as some of the images aren’t of sufficient resolution for print etc, so am in the process of putting together some artwork from all the pics I received. If you want to eventually buy a print/canvas and you find your pic has been removed from the grid I’ll happily customise your own artwork by popping it back in. Right, enough waffle. The current artwork I’m putting together is currently set up to 12×12 INCHES (canvas people *clearly* haven’t gone metric!) is below, looking rather like the 2nd Death Star under construction…

The blank pink squares are either awaiting replacements or are casualties of war. As you can see, to get rid of the awkward 50 sat on its own in a 49-square grid, I’ve now extended the grid to a 64-square one, which means I’m after SOME MORE NUMBERS!!! #sundaypics has gone into extra time! As I say, I’m trying to get tweaked/bigger versions of some numbers, but the following are up for grabs…


Please twitpic (or similar) as many submissions for these numbers as you like, as high-res as possible, copying me in, and we’ll go from there.

Thanks again, gang; twas a fab #sundaypics to host ๐Ÿ™‚
