Doodlesplatter – First Annual Shammy Awards

There’s been a lot of dodgers in the doodlesphere lately. Since we’ve built a 500+ strong artkive of Jon Burgerman’s work, we figure we’re about as trained as it gets in spotting a designer impostor. It’s not necessary to beat you (already did) and we don’t want to join you, so the only reasonable solution is to publicly shame you for your [complete lack of] efforts.

With that, the Shammies were born. It’s just like the Grammys, except with 100% more Shame. Yes, that’s right: In our competition, all our Winners are Losers (not just Kanye West this time)! Let us take our hats off and briefly celebrate spurious imitations. CONGRATULATIONS: YOU ARE A SHAM! [The Shammies are brought to you by Doodlesplatter, The Neon Hive, The letter L and the number 0. We draw strength & inspiration from the chutzpah of Regretsy.]

Read, see and shame the winners of the Shammies!

Doodlesplatter: A Jon Burgerman Blogography

The Internet is permanent in many ways, yet ephemeral in others. Things sell out, pictures are removed, sites fade away, links get broken…There's also a lot of art out there that's not meant to last forever. Maybe it gets lost or worn out or removed or eaten up.

Doodlesplatter: A Jon Burgerman Blogography was born out of a desire to present a complete “artkive” of Jon's work. With just a few clicks, you'll see Jon illustrate that any surface can be a canvas. Whether you're sick on a plane (airplane vomit bag) or stuck in the rain (umbrella collab with SIZE?), Jon's doodles are there to cheer you. I find this very inspiring and happy-making. So I'm returning the favor: Jon Burgerman has a posse.

Doodlesplatter is like Disneyland for doodles. It contains original doodles and the cataloged work of Jon Burgerman, a spectacular design by The Neon Hive and a year of research and OCD by me, Jeremy Brautman. Please come join the posse!
