I don't know if anyone else has received this email so I'll copy it below. I'm intrigued and interested but suspicious that it's not real.
We are Headstuff and we are producing a book showcasing people’s doodles in a fun way to show our inner thoughts…
So, here’s the thing… Do you doodle? If so, please follow the below guidelines and email us your sketches for submission to the Headstuff book that will be available online and in stores from August 2007 at the very latest.
The idea is to have a book full of doodles, have you explain what they mean and have various psychological therapists comment on what it could all mean. The book will be split into the categories listed below.
We are either planning self publication or to go through an established publishers. Either way we are getting the book on Amazon.com and Play.com as well as others.
If you are interested then all you need to do is take some time out from your busy day and sit down with a pen, coloured, black whatever and draw you inner most feelings about the following subjects. You can choose all of them or just a few. When finished, put the subject title on a separate bit of paper and attach this to the sketches. Please, no words in the sketches or they will not be accepted.
The subjects are:
With all entries, please give your name, a brief profile of you (by you) and what was going through your head with the sketches. Please also add that you are giving Headstuff permission to use these images within its future publication. After you have done your sketches, scan them onto your pc and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org . If you have another suggested way in which to give us your doodles then please ask us first before sending.
If at no point can you source a scanner then please photograph them very clearly and email them to the same address.
So, ideally, you will have an email to us, with your scanned images, your profile and some info about the doodles.
If possible, please forward this email to your 10 closest friends or colleagues to do the same and so on… Spread the word.
All entries will be screened and considered, so good luck, see you in all good bookstores soon!
